SHAH ALAM: Last year, Malaysian Defence posted a story on a tender for 153 Fitted For Radio (FFR) vehicles for the Army. The tender came some two years after the Army floated another tender for 40 FFR which was awarded to Cendana Auto Sdn Bhd in 2020.
Cendana Auto was also awarded a slew of contract of one-tonne vehicles including FFRs for the Joint Force Command; Special Operations Vehicles; Mortar Transporter and Weapons Carriers. Cendana designated these vehicles as FFR, SOV SF-21X, Mortar MT-815 and the Armed Tactical Ground Vehicles (ARTAC). According to Shephard, the 207 vehicles awarded to Cendana would be delivered this year.
What about the 153 FFR tender then? I am being told that there is no winner yet although seven companies entered the tender with bids from RM55 million to RM73 million. I was told it was just like the SPH tender, no decision has been taken yet.
