SHAH ALAM: Gading Marine it appears is the builder of the 13 Fast Interceptor Craft or Fast Combat Boat (FIC/FCB) announced by the RMN earlier this year. A model of the FIC Batch 2 is displayed at the RMN booth at DSA 2022 with the designation of FIC G2000.
It doesn’t look much different from the current FCB/FIC already in service apart from the fact that it has a ramp at back allowing for RHIB to be stowed and deployed from there.
It is armed with three machine guns, two on a pintle mount on the stern deck and one above the cabin mounted on a remote mount.
It is unclear whether it will be equipped with the RWS as the current one in service are not equipped with them.
