Rheinmetall Wins Breakthrough Malaysian Navy Order

Press Release
Thursday, January 24, 2013

Germany's Rheinmetall Group to supply 12 fire control radars & 6 electro-optical systems for six new patrol boats.

Together with spare parts and training, the order also includes a transfer of know-how to Malaysia, which will enable local industry to take an active part in the project. Delivery of the systems will commence in 2015 and continue through to 2020.

The Malaysian Navy’s new “Second Generation Patrol Vessels Littoral Combat Ships” (SGPV LCS), play a significant role in safeguarding regional sea lanes, where piracy poses a major threat to commercial shipping. Fire control technology from Rheinmetall will form a crucial element in the OPV’s shipboard technology, controlling the vessel’s primary and secondary armament. This important order underscores Rheinmetall’s increasing importance as a supplier of advanced technology to the world’s navies.

The company regards this as a breakthrough order for a new generation of high-performance systems whose basic components were all developed in-house.
