Army Ordnance Training on The NLAW

Unlike the Carl Gustav and RPG-7, the NLAW can be fired safely in a confined space. SAAB

SHAH ALAM: Army ordnance training on the NLAW. IT appears that the Army Ordnance Corps has been issued with at least one Next Generation Light Anti-Tank Weapon (NLAW) training round. The NLAW training round is likely part of the Army’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) unit based in Mempaga, Pahang. The unit trained EOD specialists from the military, police and coast guard as well.

Malaysian Defence has reported the procurement of the NLAW in 2018 and 2019 but there has not been any public picture of the NLAW since then. The first public picture of the training NLAW was published by BTDM on September 16 following the visit of the Army chief Gen Zamrose Mohd Zain to the 91 Central Depot in Kuala Lumpur. As usual there were not many details on the 91 Depot itself and its capabilities apart from the pictures themselves.

KUALA LUMPUR: Panglima Tentera Darat (PTD), Jen Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Zamrose Mohd Zain menerima lencana kehormat dari Kor Ordnan Diraja (KOD) bertempat di Padang Kawad 91 Depot Pusat Kor Ordnans Diraja (91 DPOD), Kem Batu Kentonmen pada 15 Sep 2022.

Terdahulu, ketibaan PTD disambut Pengerusi KOD, Mej Jen Mohd Tamam Jamioon sebelum diteruskan dengan gimik pemakaian Lencana Kehormat Kejuruteraan Peluru dan Bahan Letupan.

Gimik berkonsepkan ancaman alat letupan rekaan ganti (IED) milik musuh yang diletakkan di tempat awam bagi mengancam ketenteraman awam. Tim Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) dari 40 Markas Kejuruteraan Peluru Kor Ordnans Diraja (40 MKP) telah diaturgerakkan bagi menangani ancaman tersebut.

Selain itu, PTD juga berpeluang mengendalikan Remote Explosive Ordnance Disposal Vehicle (REODV) yang digunakan Tim EOD. REODV merupakan sejenis alat yang boleh diaturgerakkan dalam pelbagai bentuk muka bumi dan dilengkapi enam buah kamera 360° serta mampu untuk mengangkat beban sehingga 75kg.

Sejurus selesai pertunjukan gimik, PTD kemudian bergerak ke Cawangan Perkhidmatan Percetakan (CPP) 91 DPOD bagi acara perasmian Mesin Cetak dan Mercu Tanda Percetakan.

Ketibaan PTD ketika itu disambut oleh Pegawai Memerintah CPP 91 DPOD, Kol Jamian Hj Samuri sebelum menyaksikan tayangan montaj Fungsi Mesin dan Peralatan Cetak.

PTD telah merasmikan enam buah mesin cetak dan dua buah komputer yang diterima dalam perolehan sepanjang 2021 hingga 2022 bagi meningkatkan kualiti dan kuantiti bahan cetakan untuk kegunaan Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM).

I am aware that the picture of the NLAW training unit has been circulating within the last few months but since I do not have the permission to publish it, I have chosen not to use it here. With the NLAW training unit already in service, it is likely that the weapon is already in service with the Army.

  1. There remains two things I know we had but I’ve yet to see photos of; Armbrust [in small numbers] and the M-20 [replaced by Carl Gustav].
