Lumut : Sharikat Limbongan Kapal Cha Cha Marbah Sendirian Berhad...a local shipbuilders wholly owned by Partai Aksi Demokratis had proposed to the government on their design of Second Generation Patrol Vessel (SGPV) for RMN.
The design are to compete against Bustad Naval Shipyard own design which had been announced yesterday would cost RM6 billion which will be build locally with order of 6 vessel.
Dato Tony Puah...Partai Aksi Demokratis defence anaLyst said their version of SGPV - Sumpah Ganas Power dan Versatile warship are much cheaper and simpler for the navy to operate and they can order up to 1000 ship compared to BNS proposed design of 6 ship which cost 6 billion ringgit.
"We wont apply FFBNW concept on our design because it is not economical and they are commercially a loss for our forces...plus i also proposed that we can use the old guns from ex Rahmat class Frigate as main naval gun...mercun roket from People Republic of China as principle anti ship missile and Aspidah anti aircraft system...i also want our design to be made 100% eco friendly with hybrid engine and materual plus the ship is built in our country for industrial leap forward" Tony Puah said to press at the Lumut today.
However...RMN in later news release said the proposed design from the shipyard had been rejected.
RMN public relations officer in his statement said.."Cmon laaa....this is blasphemy...when i saw this proposed design i already know it is the magical work of photoshop...i had doubt these guys could even built a fibreglass boat for heaven sake" he said.
The proposal..dubbed the KrengKongKeng class SGPV will cost RM 300 000 each...altogether with advance weaponry and engines...hull design are taken from the infamous Somalian trawler which had seen action and in service with various Somali pirate group...the advance design will only require eco friendly material and recycled item...
MINDEF now are reviewing and evaluating the proposal from the shipyard to be unconsidered.
