I was surprised to find that the Kedah-class PVs. KD Kedah and KD Pahang, not listed in the armada’s list. Since the link was updated on Aug 15, I do not think it was just a simple error. I distinctly remember about three months ago clicking on the same page and seeing the PV squadron (Kedah-class listed in the list).
Has the navy decided to decommission the Kedah and Pahang for the time being as the problems highlighted in the Auditor General’s report are rectified? If its the case, it clearly shows that the problems with the Kedah class are so serious and deep rooted. Of course the report stated that the both ships were built with steel that did not meet the specifications.
I hope that it was just a matter of being prudent (the decommissioning if it was that and not a webmaster error) as the repairs are done and not a catastrophic failure.
I will try to check on this and update it, ASAP.
