I believe the decision to name the Submarine KD Tuanku Abdul Rahman and KD Tun Razak is fitting.
Can’t stop wondering what would be the names of the Lekiu Block II frigates.
I know that an aircraft carrier would be a long, very long shot to have. But would be nice if someday in the future, I would still be alive to see a RMN aircraft carrier named KD Mahathir. Somehow, can’t imgine TDM as a frigate. If not an aircraft carrier, maybe a big destroyer like Russian’s Kirov Class… big huge gorgeous and very lethal ship. But I know a Russian ship for RMN will never materialise.
Anyway, we pray for a good launch. Amin.
As the subs are already called tjhe PM class, perhaps if we buy two more, the fourth should be called Dr mahathir…
