Real Armada de Malasia - Adquisicion de 6 Fragatas

Mensaje por Rogersukoi27 el 7/3/2015, 2:35 pm






Sin duda, la Armada Real de Malasia, no esta ajena al arribo cercano de las instalaciones
militares Chinas en la zona en conflicto entre Filipinas, Vietnam y en cierta distancia con
Indonesia y Malasia.
No esperan que esten lejanos a un conflicto, y se posicionan a equiparse con naves
de superficie de avanzado diseño y equipamiento, sin dejar de seguir creciendo en
equipos aereos y en el proceso de adquirir los submarinos de tecnologia de punta.
Un evento mas en el escenario de armarse en el Sur de Asia.

Royal Malaysian Navy Releases First Official Image of its LCS-SGPV Corvette

The Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) unveiled for the first time an official rendering of its future Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) - Second Generation Patrol Vessel (SGPV). The vessel is based on DCNS' Gowind Combat corvette design. DCNS is the warship design authority while local shipyard Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn will be in charge of buidling the vessels locally.

The RMN's LCS will have a length of 111 meters and a displacement of 3,100 tons. The 6 vessels will be fitted with 57mm Mark 3 main guns with stealth cupola from BAE Systems Bofors. It was confirmed to us during LIMA 2013 that the combat management system will be the SETIS by DCNS, the Fire Control Systems will be provided by Rheinmetall, and the engines will be provided by MTU. There will be two 30mm remote weapon stations by MSI. Thales announced ealier this year that it has signed a Letter of Award with Contraves Advanced Devices Sdn. Bhd. to supply six SMART-S Mk2 naval surveillance radar systems, as well as six CAPTAS-2 towed sonar systems for the Royal Malaysian Navy’s Second Generation Patrol Vessel (SGPV) Littoral Combat Ships (LCS).

Navy Recognition's own sources indicate it is now highly likely that the anti-ship missiles and surface to air missile will be provided by MBDA (MM40 Block 3 and VL Mica respectively).

First ship of the class is set to be floated out and lowered in the water via a platform in December of 2018.

Royal Malaysian Navy statement:

In accordance with its long term plan to become a World-Class Navy, the Royal Malaysian Navy ordered six LCS class frigates with four-dimensional warfare capabilities.

Procurement contract is between the Government and Boustead Naval Shipyard Sdn Bhd (BNS). This acquisition is a continuation of the acquisition of six New Generation Patrol Vessel (NGPV) of BNS before. LCS will be equipped with the tools and systems for 4-dimensional war with Surface to Air Missile system (SAM), Surface to Surface Missile (SSM), Medium Caliber Gun (MCG), Small Caliber Gun (SCG), Towed Array Sonar (TAS), torpedo and Decoy Launching System (DLS) technology. In addition, the LCS has acquired a modern stealth design and will meet the defense capability of the 21st century. This acquisition will also strengthen the navy as a credible navy in the Southeast Asian region and internationally.

CNS Confirms Sale of 10 Gowind Corvettes, Expects More (French warships)

PARIS --- France’s DCNS shipyards group has for the first time officially confirmed the sale of 10 Gowind corvettes to Egypt and Malaysia, together worth about 1.5 billion euros, and which have vindicated the company’s investment in this new class of warships. Further sales are anticipated.

The Gowind design is derived from L’Adroit, an innovative ship combining certain attributes of frigates and offshore patrol vessels that DCNS developed on its own funds to meet what it believed was a market niche offering significant growth potential and a lack of credible competition. Gowinds are small frigates or large corvettes, rather than offshore patrol vessels, which have small crews and are economical to operate, says a company official, although they can carry a full complement of sensors as well as air-defense and anti-ship missiles and torpedoes. “This is a growing market,” he says, and a number of countries are preparing to launch tenders for such ships, the first of which is Kuwait.

Two contracts signed

The sale of six Gowinds to Malaysia and four to Egypt has been previously reported, notably by the Paris-based LaTribune.fr website, but were only officially confirmed by DCNS during last week’s Euronaval show in Paris-Le Bourget, and even then only by a post on its Tweeter account.

Malaysian local production

DCNS’ Malaysian contract involves the sale of the Gowind 2500 design and related technology to a local shipyard, Boustead Naval Shipyards (BNS), which is the prime contractor and will build all six ships at its Lumut shipyard under the Malaysian navy’s Second Generation Patrol Vessel (SGPV) program. BNS was awarded the $2.8 billion contract in 2011, but it only went into effect on July 14, 2014 after completion of a major upgrade of the Lumut shipyard.

DCNS’ involvement began in 2012, when it signed a Letter Of Agreement with BSN, and in addition to the design and related technology, it will also supply the ships’ combat management systems and technical assistance in adapting the basic design to Malaysian requirements, which for example call for a slightly longer ship (+ 8 meters), powered by four 16-cylinder MTU marine diesels. Under the contract, DCNS retains IP rights to the basic Gowind design, whereas BNS will own the rights to the Malaysian variant.



The Malaysian contract is worth “several hundreds of million euros” to DCNS, according to company officials; construction of the lead ship is to start in March and its delivery is tentatively planned for 2019, substantially later than initially planned by Malaysia. The French company also plans to compete for a possible follow-on third-generation program if that project goes through.

Egypt splits construction

The second Gowind 2500 sale is to Egypt, and is the first time that country has procured French naval ships. The order was negotiated very quickly, and as the Egyptian navy has an urgent need for the vessels the lead ship will be built by DCNS in France while Egypt modernizes the military shipyard which will build the following three ships, with technical transfer and assistance provided by DCNS.

At 102 meters, the Egyptian Gowinds are slightly shorter than Malaysia’s, and since they will also be used for mine countermeasures, they will have a hybrid power plant combining electric motors and two 20-cylinder MTU diesels.

The French-built ship is due to be launched in 2017, and the upgrade of the Egyptian shipyard began in July, at the same time as the procurement contract, worth a little less than 1 billion euros, was signed. It also includes options on additional ships.

Separately, MBDA is negotiating a contract to equip the ships with MICA Vertical Launch air-defense missiles and MM-40 Exocet anti-ship missiles, together worth an additional 400 million euros, while DCNS is negotiating a 100-200 million euro contract for torpedoes.



Further sales expected

Having been able to benefit from the French Navy’s “imprimatur” through the innovative, three-year no-cost lease contract, DCNS has been able to refine the Gowind design and now offers several competitive advantages on which it bases its confident outlook for the design’s sales prospects.

One is that Gowind is a new design, incorporating innovations such as a bridge with 360-degree visibility, two separate rear loading ramps for fast boats, and a degree of adaptability that company officials say is unmatched. An example is the ship’s main mast, which is both a separate sub-assembly and entirely modular; in other words, it can be fitted with all customer-specified sensors, and all are wired through the mast’s interface with the superstructure, which also simplifies future upgrades. Mast-mounted sensors benefit from full, 360-degree visibility, and have no blind spots.

The mast’s customization can go even further, and DCNS can adapt the composite material in which it is made to ensure it does not interfere with radar or other emitters.

“All this translates into an operational advantage that marks the difference in our ships, especially as our competitors offer much older and less flexible designs,” says a company official.
