3 paragraph talking about Eurofighter, 2 paragraph about Rafale....

seems like the author of this article trying hard to promote the Typhoon though. Gripen is officially out based on that recent comment made by Def Minister Zahid Hamidi few days ago...

Good luck to all of them....

sorry don....
kami BUKAN negara PENADAH TANGAN....
dan kami BUKAN bangsa asal telan apa saja yang ditawarkan..
terlebih jika menyangkut soal HARGA DIRI dan kedaulatan kami.

asal loe tau...Gripen telah dengan nekad konyol menerima tindakan negara kami dengan membakulsampahkan tawaran mereka...
apa lagi tawaran SEWA.....sangat memalukan...!!!!

Yang hampir pasti buat pengganti Mig29 kami adalah Rafale ato Eurofighter Typhoon....batas waktu adalah tahun 2015 bila Smokey Bandit kami mulai pensiun.

Langkawi (RIA Novosti)- Malaysian Prime Minister was interested in the Russian fifth generation fighter T-50 (PAK FA), said Air Force Commander Viktor Bondarev at the air show LIMA -2013.

"Development Program for the PAK FA is underway. Yesterday met with Malaysian Prime Minister - he was very interested in the aircraft," - said the commander in chief.

Answering the question of when the PAK FA to be delivered to the Russian Army, Bondarev said: "As you know, these new machines are now actively being tested, and in 2016 the first aircraft expected to begin flowing to the troops."

Earlier this Airshow deputy director of "Rosoboronexport" Victor Komardin said Royal Malaysian Air Force would be inappropriate to adopt and buy a Russian fifth-generation fighter, but Moscow will continue to advance in this country modernized versions of the Su-30 MKM.

LANGKAWI (RIA Novosti)– Russian aircraft maker Sukhoi and the Malaysian Defense Ministry have signed a $100-million contract for the technical maintenance of Malaysia’s fleet of Su-30MKM fighters, said a spokesman for the organizing committee of the LIMA-2013 aerospace exhibition.

The contract covers technical maintenance as well as supplies of spare parts for 18 Russian Su-30MKM fighters that were delivered to Malaysia between 2007 and 2009 under a $900-million contract signed in 2003.
In addition to its 18 Su-30MKM Flanker fighters, Malaysia also has 16 MiG-29N Fulcrum fighters in its combat aircraft fleet.

The Su-30MKM is a multi-role Flanker based on the Su-30MKI model and features a customized avionics package built to Malaysian specifications. Su-family fighters constitute the bulk of Russia's arms exports.
