Boustead showcasing a DCNS Gowind corvette tweaked to Royal Malaysian Navy needs at DSA 2012
Navy Recognition team who was attending the DSA 2012 Defense exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was able to gather fresh information regarding the future Gowind corvettes of the Royal Malaysian Navy. While the negotiations are still ongoing, signature of the contract should happen soon according to an official from Boustead. The same person gave us an updated list of systems that will likely be found on those new corvettes.
According to this source, the Gowind corvette for Royal Malaysian Navy will likely sports the following weapons:
Bofors 57 mm Mk 2 for main gun
MBDA Mica VL for air defense in the VLS cells
MBDA MM40 BlkIII anti-ship missiles
2x 30mm guns from MSI-Defence Systems Ltd located on top of the helicopter hanger
Regarding sensors, the Malaysian Gowinds should come with:
TMEO Mk2 - TMX/EO Electro-optical tracking and fire control system by Rheinmetall
SMART-S Mk2 3D multibeam radar by Thales
Thales Captas for sonar (We could not get confirmation on the type: Nano or another model)
As expected, the combat managed system will be the SETIS by DCNS.
