LMS Baru adalah dari PR China

Diambil terus daripada twitter PTL akan perkembangan perolehan Littoral Mission Ships daripada PR China.



Ini pula gambaran LMS yang akan dibina 2 buah di sana dan dua buah di sini


Dikatakan kelas kapal ini dibina berdasarkan kelas yang telah dibina oleh Wuchang Shipyard berdasarkan korvet Type 056 PLAN yang paling banyak dibina dalam armada moden mereka.

Butiran mengenai kapal yang seangkatan itu di ==> sini

Saya anggap ini perkembangan yang baik kerana limbungan ini mempunyai kepakaran membina kapalselam dan kapal pemburu ranjau, dua cabang ilmu kapal laut yang bakal menjadi sebahagian misi kapal2 LMS ini berdasarkan konsep 'fit to mission'.

Dibawah ini adalah kenyataan akhbar rasmi Menteri Pertahanan akan perolehan ini.

Selamat HUT ke 82 TLDM



Sempena HUT TLDM yang ke 82 hari ini, saya sahaja ingin berkongsi dua rencana berkaitan TLDM yang disiarkan bersempena HUT ini.

Yang pertama ialah " Selepas 82 Tahun, TLDM bertaraf dunia" daripada BERNAMA yang menulis tentang perutusan Panglima TLDM.

Kedua ialah artikel berkenaan cadangan perolehan kelas LMS dalam perancangan pengurangan kelas armada TLDM daripada 15 kepada 5 kelas. Bagi saya amat menarik bila nampaknya tertulis seperti empat friget sedia ada dikelaskan bersama enam unit LCS yang bakal diperolehi mulai 2019.

Wallahualam.

Cubalah Pertimbangkan

Dah lama tak tulis kat sini fasal tak ada topik yang menarik nak komen. Cuma terlihat gambar away team TLDM ni buat operasi amfibi dengan uniform biasa tergerak nak komen bila lah agak nya nak tukar ke unform kerja yang lebih sesuai yang sudah dipraktikan oleh tentera-tentera laut yang lain seperti RSN, USN dan RAN di bawah.

 Source : Internet

 Agak janggal melihat topi dan backpack ada corak camo, tapi uniform itu sendiri terang-benderang senang untuk dilihat. Bayangkan kalau dalam operasi sebenar, bagaimana nak mengabui mata musuh. Tentera darat sudah mempunyai uniform yang bersesuaian bukan sahaja untuk operasi di sini tetapi di asia timur, bila agaknya TLDM nak menyediakan uniform untuk anggota untuk operasi masakini yang lebih mencabar? Takkan nak tunggu pasukan amfibi ditubuhkan baru nak kaji uniform baru. Lagipun ini untuk semua warga kerja TLDM, tu saya cakap away uniform iaitu untuk operasi luar kapal. Amacam?

New Interceptor Crafts For The Malaysian Navy

The Royal Malaysian Navy has recently announced that they have acquired new high speed interceptor boats that will operate out of the Bunga Mas 5 (BM5) that will act as the mother ship in her role to protect the Sabah east coast against potential threats.

The BM5 In Port Klang In June 2014

The BM5 which will serve as a forward sea base equipped with high-speed interceptor boats, radar surveillance and helicopters. The three interceptor combat boats (CB90) will be used together with the rigid hull inflatable boats (RHIBs) that are currently being used by the navy’s elite sea commando unit (Paskal) and two new boats that were recently acquired by the navy – the Silver Brize and P38 craft.“The Bunga Mas 5 is the right choice to be placed in the area as it has a surveillance radar system and is equipped with helicopters to carry out night operations over long distances,” said navy chief Admiral Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Jaafar.

The P38 craft seems to have been purchased from UES Marine, a division of United Engineering Services LLC, Oman. Their Signature Interceptor Vessel the P-38, these UES interceptor boats can be tailor made as per the customers' requirements. The P38 is a high performance interceptor craft designed for interdiction of hostile vessels in coastal and offshore waters. It is an open boat well-suited for boarding, beaching and interdiction operations. It features advanced deep V step design hull which is 3D infused with advanced composite materials in epoxy resin for optimum power to weight ratio and maximum strength. The hull form and design affords maximum comfort for this type of craft allowing the crew to operate effectively with minimum fatigue. The P38 is designed to accommodate up to 12 crew and is equipped for missions of 12 to 24 hours. 

The P38 can be fitted to meet customised mission requirements, such as triple 50 caliber machine gun mounts. To protect your crew, ballistic NIJ Level lll extended height paneling can be installed into the sides of the cockpit.

Unfortunately the Silver Brize boats I am unable to identify but once I do i will surely include details of it here later.

Jangan Jadi Jahil Lah!


Hakikatnya bagi mereka yang hanya tahu menjerit di Facebook tapi jahil fakta, Malaysia sudah lama menghantar pasukan tentera hadapannya ke bumi Palestin untuk berhadapan dengan tentera rejim Israel.

Walaupun hanya dilengkapi dengan kenderaan perisai usang kerana pihak pembangkang selalu tanya, "mau bili itu senjata mau lawan siapa", pada dasarnya bila negara-negara Islam bersatu satu masa nanti dan akhirnya mengisytiharkan jihad, berbanggalah yang negara kita dan negara serantau iaitu Indonesia dan Brunei(yang menempatkan anggotanya bersama kontijen kita) akan beraksi dari awal lagi.

Tak percaya? Tanyalah bekas-bekas tentera-tentera pengaman kita yang pernah bertugas di Bosnia-herzegovina kenapa Harimau Malaya digeruni pihak serbia dan croatia. Ingat fasal bola ke?

Tidak perlulah elemen-elemen sokongan termasuk dari TUDM berada di sana kalau setakat tentera kita setakat nak "bersiar-siar" di sana. Bila jihad sebenar berlaku, bala tentera kita tidak akan masuk medan dengan mata buta nanti, InsyaAllah.

Jadi sabarlah hati, tawakkallah dengan percaturan Allah. Dia maha mengetahui apa yang Dia kehendaki.

MARAKAH (LUBNAN), 14 Julai — Perjalanan darat dari ibu negara Lubnan, Beirut, ke sini mengambil masa kira-kira dua jam merentasi kawasan luar bandar yang dipenuhi kebun pisang, ladang oren dan buah zaitun yang tumbuh subur.

We do not forget. Congrats!

As mentioned in series of tweets by the Prime Minister, we have never forgotten those who were abducted in Sabah waters. Congrats for the successful operations to recover the abductees.


I have just been briefed by that the two women abducted from a resort in Sabah last Apr have been rescued by our authorities.

We are taking steps to facilitate the return of the Chinese national to her home as soon as possible.

No ransom paid to secure their release. Success due to cooperation of Malaysia & Philippines security forces. I thank all involved.

Sea Basing ? Not Such A New Concept

When the navy chief Admiral Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Jaafar espoused the concept of Sea Basing and then further elaborated by the Minister of Defence himself, many has jumped on the comment bandwagon as if it is such a new concept. Many may have forgotten that the Navy has used their MPSS for such a purpose at a time in their history before as evidenced by this photo off the Sabah coast where the Inderapura played the role of mothership for the Jerong class FAC-Gs.


It has also been reported that a decommissioned oil rig has been proposed to be used as a logistics base or mothership but to me that is a bit wild as such oil rigs typically ride high over the water and easy ingress and egress for the vessels that they are supposed to support may be difficult, amongst others.

The Oil Rig Solution as mentioned in the MOD tweet " May 9 
Kita boleh! “: H2O: ESSCOM:"Sea Basing" suggested by TS PTL doable wit designated route by

As for using the existing remaining MPSSs or the Auxilliary ships BM5 and BM6 as the motherships, I quite agree but the lead time may take a long time as the MPSS would surely need to be replaced by a new class of MRSS in their current logistics role while the BM5 and BM6 are still preoccupied with their missions in the far oceans. 

So what is the navy to do to then to materialise the creation of a small naval base offshore on urgent basis? There is another methodology of sea-basing that the Navy has successfully implemented in their efforts to safeguard our territory before, that is to build up artificial reefs like we have in the Spratlys where we created some of the bases overnight in fact by grounding barges and building up the land around it. In fact since the land borders for the ESSCOMM is clearly defined, we could even build it at a proper but quick pace and give it a proper naval base functionality than a rush job like the proposed oil rig solution.

Ubi Reef

Sometimes the simpler method could be the best don't you think?
