LANGKAWI: Contracts and Nuri Handing over. Nuri tail number M23-37 was officially handed over to the RMAF today marking the start of in service flight trials for the helicopter with the new digital cockpit.

NADI Group, the parent company of Airod Sdn Bhd, signed the proof of concept contract at DSA 2016 to breathe a new life on the Nuri fleet. And if the air force found the helicopter performed to its expectations it may lead to a new contract to upgrade the other 26 Nuri airframes which remained in charge with the TUDM. Some of these are operational and others are kept in reserve, and needed servicing before they can declared operational.

  1. Any idea what the Su30 munitions and missiles are?

    Same ones mostly to extend their service lives

  2. Hi Marhalim,

    Do you have any info on a navy open house this year?

    The Navy obviously has much to celebrate. On the flip side, open houses are not every year. It might be one of the last chances to see some of our ships.

    No idea at the moment, will put them up when I get them
