LANGKAWI: More videos from the isle of Mahsuri tonight. I have decided to do a walkabout instead of shooting tiny pictures of planes flying in the skies. This will be the nearest you can get to Malaysian airplanes and helicopters without being an airman or pilot yourself enjoy.
The first video is the MMEA new Dauphin AS565 N *. Note the FLIR on the starboard side of the helicopter. It is probably the LEO FLIR originally meant for the Bomba Mi-17. I had previously speculated that the LEO FLIR systems kept in store will be fitted on the MMEA helicopters, which turns out to be true. * Which turn out to be wrong of course, as pointed out by reader Bobo, thanks, apparently its a Polytech Kelvin turret. The Swedish made turret are usually meant for civil purposes, the LE/SAR variant is called Cobolt.*
The second one is the RMN Super Lynx 300. Seen here with the Whitehead torpedo and the Sea Skua missile.
The third is the RMN Fennec. It is supposed to be used for training but its roles had grown considerably larger, just look at the huge chin radar!
