SHAH ALAM: Np. 6 Squadron at Bersama Gold. It appears that the No. 6 Squadron of the RMAF is the Hawk unit which was sent out a temporary detachment to Kuantan airbase for Bersama Gold 2021. Apart from the No.6 Squadron, the No. 12 Squadron also sent a temporary detachment for the FPDA exercise. It is unclear how many personnel and aircraft from both squadrons are taking part in the exercise, though it is likely four airframes.
The involvement of No. 6 Squadron, based at the Labuan airbase, is another reminder that it is the sole operational Hawk squadron with the No. 15 Squadron as the training unit.
The now defunct No.9 Squadron which also used to be based at Labuan was the other operational Hawk squadron.
LAWATAN PANGLIMA OPERASI UDARA KE PANGKALAN UDARA KUANTAN SEMPENA EKSESAIS BERSAMA GOLD 2021( EKS BG21)
KUANTAN, 11 Okt 21 – Panglima Operasi Udara, Lt Jen Dato’ Hj Mohammad Salleh bin Hj Osman TUDM telah membuat lawatan ke Skuadron 320, Detasemen No 6 Skn, dan Detasemen No 12 Skn di Pangkalan Udara Kuantan bagi meninjau pelaksanaan Eks BERSAMA GOLD 21.
Ketibaan Panglima Operasi Udara dan delegasi telah disambut oleh Panglima Wilayah Udara 1, Mej Jen Dato’ Zahani bin Hj Zainal Abidin TUDM dan Komander Pangkalan Udara Kuantan, Brig Jen Zulkiffli bin Hj Musa TUDM serta turut menerima kawalan kuarter dari Warga Pangkalan Udara Kuantan.
Lawatan ini bertujuan bagi mendapatkan gambaran penuh berhubung pelaksanaan eksesais dan keberkesanan atau kekangan yang dihadapi semasa Eks BG21 serta penambaikan pada masa hadapan. Panglima Operasi Udara memuji kesemua Skuadron yang terlibat di atas semangat dan komitmen yang diberikan sepanjang eksesais berlangsung.
Note the Skuadron 320 also involved in the exercise is the radar squadron based at the Kuantan airbase. It must be noted that despite the ongoing Bersama Gold exercise, RMAF Hawks and Flankers were also involved in the Army’s 2021 firepower demonstration which was held at the Gemas firing range this week.
It is unclear whether the Hawks and Flankers involved in Bersama Gold also took part in the firepower demonstration which involved the dropping of live ordnance.
