sorry if i offended you
you cannot blame cambodia because china gives investation to them
if we really want them to join us we must give another equal investation to them
Correct too, money talks.. ASEAN countries need to be strong economically and financially. Maybe ASEAN can have own investment fund/bank (such as ADB) that can turn into war-chest fund

In recent turnaround, Myanmar open for business to Indo, Mal and western countries.. else it continues to be Chinese outpost/port

Malaysia have a limited numbers of military related skilled workers,we can only concentrate on certain industry such as shipbuilding and "small scale weapons."
the quoted words, is it means the production of Vita Berapi?
i admitted that the model is really bad
but if the what so called Vita Berapi has experiencing some modification it should be better for Malaysia

by producing it you guys will be released from imported guns and reducing the dependency from other country

The reality is, we don't have that numbers of skilled workers in military industry to start an industry, Indonesia have the numbers and experienced, simple, so Indonesia should lead this industry.

About the Vita Berapi, maybe u're right and u have full rights to say anything about it, i'm not offended at all...

naahh... you keep saying that again and again
if we want to make a good military pact we should devide this industry in some countries

indonesia already has guns, amo, panzer, ship, rocket, airplane industry.
cuntries like Malaysia and Brunei should find another kind of industry to support this pact. for example: radar, robotic, satellite, enginery, etc

i believe with your country resources, you can build such industry

how about the "panda intruder" - ASEAN trade zone?
is that affecting our region economy to be better or worse?

I agree, if former enemies can work on Airbus aircraft in Europe.. what more countries like ours. We should find which countries specializing in what.

What's missing in ASEAN is Nuclear Aircraft Carrier, Nuclear Submarine, ICBM, Tactical Nuke, 5th Gen Stealth Fighter, 5th Gen Stealth long-range Bomber, 5th Gen MBT & IFV, Ground-based & Satellite-based Laser, Electronic Warfare, Nuke/Bio/Hydrogen smart Bombs.. Hehehe wish-list too long

maybe in the future, the engine design from our automotive industry might have a chance to be brought into the military industry, like i said before, we can only concentrate on certain military industry at one time.

Most of our industry skilled workers we're not in the military based industry, this is the problem, Malaysia need more conventional commercial industry workers than the military industry. It's more related to the supply and demand of the commercial industry goods vs the military industry, we don't have a choice then. If only we have the numbers like Indonesia, we might as well going the same path for sure, but realistically we don't have that.

The rules said that local ASEAN content must be at least 40&#8201;% of the FOB value of the good. If it brings adverse trade effect, we can easily increase 40% to 90% if it needs to. So outside goods won't survive

Proton's Campro engine should be used in indigenous Panser, 6x6 or 8x8 IFV/APC. Civilian industry should be dual-use and militarized at some point. Audi & Mitsubishi played their role in WW2

Jet engine production is elusive, but not impossible

i don't think the Campro 1.6 is power enough for the heavy Panser, or is it enough?not sure about this.The early Campro is well known to have a problem with high fuel consumption,don't know if it still have the same problem with the early version.

Maybe the Petronas E01(now under Proton if i'm not mistaken) 2.0 engine might have the future to be used and maybe upgraded to suit military vehicle.

About jet engines, i believe Indonesia is way ahead in this department, if u're already manage to make a decent rocket missiles like the Lapan did, that's close enough i guess towards jet engine tech..

I mean there's base to develop further (from Campro/E01/etc). Typically military vehicles use diesel (turbo better), horsepower should start from 1000HP onwards

if it's a 1000HP onwards and Diesel powered, then it's a long way to go then...but the basics is already there, hopefully they working it out in the future.

the fact that LOTUS has been owned by Proton should be used by Malaysian to increase the performance of Proton's car power
Proton can ask LOTUS to teach Malaysian how to make a good and reliable engines

jet engines are very different with rocket, we still need more times to study this thing. but it will be different if you talk about turboprop engine used in propeller aeroplane. PT DI already has the technology
