SHAH ALAM: Bad Moon Rising. As you are aware with the upcoming general elections, the authorities are preparing for troubles. With the police already committed to various other security operations, the Army is expected to shoulder part of the responsibilities of keeping the peace, if anything bad breaks out of course.
For this reason, Army formations across the country has been training for the possibility of such. As this things are basically routine stuff, this is usually covered by BTDM Online, the Army’s own news network.
As for the preparations it is interesting to see the Army is putting up its armoured vehicles including tanks for the security operations. For the recent the World Urban Congress (Feb. 7 to Feb. 13) summit in Kuala Lumpur, the Army’s formation were also equipped with Gempita and Condors but no Pendekars were seen.
For the GE operations, the Pendekar and the Adnan/MIFV have been added to the mix. Hopefully, the general elections will come and go peacefully.
