Expired Simulator Contract

SHAH ALAM: Expired simulator contract. It appears that KD Pelandok, the RMN main training school, is in a bind as the contracts of its simulator or simulators had expired.

The training school posted it’s predicament as it hosted a group of Ministry of Finance officials on Tuesday. The post did not identify the type of contracts that had expired but since it has a number of simulators we can assume that it is likely these involved support and maintenance issues

Among the simulators it has are the bridge handling, damage control, fire and electronic warfare systems.

Perhaps the expired contract was one of the reasons RMN sent KD Jebat to India recently for FOST.

It must be noted the submarine simulators at the Kota Kinabalu naval base were upgraded recently almost at the same time as the submarines refit program was undertaken.

Hopefully as everyone seemed to be very concerned with sovereignty recently, the bean counters at MOF and the government will take seriously the predicament faced by KD Pelandok and expedite the contract renewal as soon as possible.
