  5. GST 1st of April…This also on the 1st of April… just had to didn’t you?

  6. TomTom, you mean this? :V

    April 2/17: French officials have told media that the Malaysian government is in exclusive negotiations with Dassault for their MiG-29 replacement program, indicating that the company’s Rafale fighter has won out against BAE’s offering of the Eurofighter Typhoon. Malaysia is looking to purchase 18 new combat aircraft — likely to be in the region of $2 billion — to replace the Royal Malaysian Air Force’s squadron of Russian MiG-29 combat planes, nearly half of which are grounded. The decision to move forward with Dassault follows last week’s visit by French President Francois Hollande.

  7. Hahaha. Article posted on April 1st. All the dates (contract sign, delivery etc.) are all on April 1st. April fool guys! Only the fools will believe this. 😂😂😂

  8. /#@!!!

    The way Malaysian drive, just put up the denda for speeding on PLUS and the budget deficit will be gone in no time.

  9. Fines are not a fix for a weak economy or national interests bloating prices and screwing up projects. Admit it, we have many systemic problems.

  10. It’s history repeating itself all again. In the early 2000’s Dassault tried with the Mirage 2000 and a flew one here to Subang for a demonstration. To date the only product Dassault has sold to the RMAF was a Falcon VIP configured jet – like other VIP configured aircraft owned by the PM’s Department. Only time will tell if Dassault has more luck this time around. In the early 2000’s Dassault’s campaign in Singapore included “omnirole” ads on public buses.

    Just because Dassault is in talks with the government, because Dassault official’s sound very upbeat or because a VIP says something positive about Rafale doesn’t mean Rafale will end up being ordered; a lot of things can happen. In the past there was also very positive things said about Typhoon.

    People tend to overlook that it’s politics followed by money that is the issue. Even if we had the cash now but the political situation wasn’t right; there would be no order. There is also the matter of whether France or Britain is more important as far as trade and other national issues are concerned; as well as as which country has more influence here at the moment.

  11. @Azlan & @…

    Having read both your arguments I can somehow conclude that since we have no $$$ the best bet now is to just resell the Migs back to Russia and get 10 ex Kuwait Hornets.

    Where RMAF just upgrade it with AESA radar, jamming pods etc then we good to go.


  12. So after all the hustle, is this news legit or not? The French has a known tendency for over-hyping & premature celebration after all… If this is true, suddenly France has become the top supplier to MAF, from navy to air force…

  13. Boy o boy is that old colonial master going to blow a fuse or two if this is true… Right after its bird just lost out to the French’s in that ex-imperial crown jewel theirs…
