  1. The RCWS could be GFE and not in the contract.

    BTW what is the main mission for these FIC? What are the main things that they are going to intercept? Can these ships be used to intercept adversary naval forces? If used as FCB, then its main function is to ferry around soldiers in littoral settings. Will it be attached to PASKAL units as their ride?

    Are these to replace, or to add to the current CB90?

  2. Looks interesting. If they could shape the cabin silhouette to be stealthy, it could be a good platform for rapid insertion & exfil of special forces RHIB boat.

  3. Don’t 😆 laugh, but could the Defence Dept consider Crowdfunding for defence procurement? Maybe a GoFundMe page or something. Maybe even a PJK or some medal for big donors. I am not joking…in this day and age, anything is possible and worth considering.

  4. gonggok – “Can these ships be used to intercept adversary naval forces”

    Depends on what type of “adversary naval forces” doesn’t it and the operational.context. Quite often they do not come face to face with foreign naval forces during routine patrols but do commonly come across foreign fishing boats and smugglers.

    gonggok – “If used as FCB, then its main function is to ferry around soldiers in littoral settings”

    Similar roles to the CB-90s. Supporting PASKAL; routine coastal surveillance; based on certain reefs to provide a transport and patrol capability, etc.

    But will it be successful? With our rakyat apathy towards defence matters I doubt it would be as great a success as that PH ‘Go Save 1MDB’ donation drive.
    Hey that gave me an idea, maybe if PH played it up like they did with 1MDB and went around seeking money, it might get the same great response and get us the millions RM that would benefit ATM. Yeah, that might work. Come on PH, let’s do it!
