Malaysia to Acquire Three Multi-Role Support Ships

The Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) will be acquiring three Multi-Role Support Ships (MRSS) worth RM2.2bil to provide faster humanitarian and disaster relief.“The vessel would also have a helicopter pad which would enable flexibility in the deployment of disaster relief supplies to affected areas.“This way, we will be able to approach disaster stricken areas by berthing the vessel at a port or flying relief supplies to the areas from a nearby anchorage position,” he said.
