SHAH ALAM: GGK Sig-Sauer MPX sub machine guns in the wild. At the Merdeka Day parade on August 31, the GGK brought out its newly acquired Sig-Sauer MPX sub-machine guns. The sub-machine guns were carried by GGK operators clad in black coverall in the parade (see below).

As reported previously by Malaysian Defence, the Army took official delivery of 155 MPX sub-machine guns amongst other stuff at a ceremony held last June.

The contract for the 155 MPX was awarded to Flumen Technologies Sdn Bhd with an LOA of RM4.8 million.

As I was unable to attend the parade – include the rehearsals – pictures posted here were sourced from BTDM,MMEA and the RMP social media pages.

It is also interesting to note that the other units of the Armed Forces armed with newish sub-machine guns were also parading their weapons at the parade.

The Berretta PMX sub-machine guns were in full force with the BKOP, 10th Para Brigade and Paskal troopers. It is also interesting to see designated marksman, sniper and anti-materiel rifles were also out on parade as their operators were part of the show.

  1. Just out of focus behind the MMEA STAR troopers with the H&K 416s are one of the 10 TDM Volvo buses, likely could be more in the area.

  2. Any idea why the Army did not display the NLAW until to date?

    It makes no sense that they are so secretive about the NLAW, which is just a short range ATGM, while at the same time calling an open tender to select a medium range ATGM and published its specifications for the public to read.

  3. Maybe its still new so don’t have used up or dummy NLAWs for display. A fully loaded unit is rather heavy to lug around in practice & parades after all.
