    Read the rest of the report....Malaysian Insider

    Next we must get this [below]....then we will be really safe?....or at least make good use during peaceful times
    This is called learning from history. in fact they have learnt a lot more from history since they have difficulty to looking forward.

    Maybe he watched the film "The Final Countdown" starring Kirk Douglas where the show was about the US aircraft carrier USS Nimitz with F-15s going through a time warp of some kind in the pacific ocean during a huge storm and found itself back to the past during the aerial invasion of Pearl Harbor at Hawaiian islands.... the dilemma to the aircraft carrier fleet (I believe they call it the US 7th Fleet) commander (Kirk Douglas acted as the Commander) was whether to launch the F-15 and stop the attack by the Japanese Zero planes or to leave history as he had known it.... interesting sci-fi movie for those who love "what if" scenarios... maybe its good for people like bro Kuma?

    This movie was 1980... I was a final-year undergraduate in UM and saw this movie at Sentosa Cinema in Section 17... wow 32 years ago - and I can still recall where and with whom I went to the cinema...

    Maybe the Malaysian Navy Chief was also there....

    Ya lah... I am pushing 53 oredi lah... 2 more years will call it quits and just follow moderator Patrick's lifestyle of tour, tour, tour, come home dust the house a bit, tour, tour tour....

    But don't you think this movie The Final Countdown reflects the mindset of the Royal Msian Navy's head honcho? Whack the Portugues armada of high-mast ships with a exocet missile from the Scorpene kasi diaorang letup dekat Pulau Pisang sampai ke Jambi di kepulauan Riau... pi makan tempe!

    To detect and destroy submarines is not impossible though they are submerge in deep waters. Our scorpene would be deep fried by the sensors and weapons designed to blast them. Unless, and of course, they were led by the Portugese armada of 16th century sea vessels. They dun have depth charges then.

    To find

    Sensors
    Acoustics particularly in active and passive sonar, sonobuoys and fixed hydrophones and in the reduction of radiated noise.
    Pyrotechnics in the use of markers, flares and explosive devices
    Searchlights
    Radar
    Low frequency spread-spectrum electromagnetic surface wave devices
    Active spread-spectrum magnetic techniques
    Hydrodynamic pressure wave detection
    Blue-green laser airborne and satellite LIDAR
    Electronic countermeasures and Acoustic Countermeasures.
    Passive acoustic countermeasures such as concealment and design of sound-absorbing materials to coat reflecting underwater surfaces
    Magnetic anomaly detection
    Active and passive infra-red detection

    Satellites have been used to image the sea surface using optical and radar techniques, these might be used for indirect detection of submarines, as could thermal imaging.

    To destroy

    Mines,
    Torpedoes, acoustic, wire-guided, and wake homing.
    Depth charges
    Rockets
    Missiles
    Anti-submarine net

    The only ships that those scorpenes would be able to sink would be if those Portuguese ships are brought back in a time warp. They can't even sink a boat carrying illegals coming to and from pengerang which are running like a shuttle service

    talking about the exocets...a retired gunner (1st batch technicians trained) related this story:
    "...then when the kepten ordered 'tembak'...i tekang the red button and we all watched the exocet blasted off, then at around 50-80metres, plonked! dropped into the sea! We all so MALU big time...so more the minister, kakitangans, admiral & all dll topmen semo ada sana! "!

    ofcourse, semo OSA lah...HAHAHAH! but puhliss do read my byline okdokey?

    But to be fair some exocets could fire lah Lato Tupai... in 2005/2006 KD Hang Jebat fired two exocets across the bow of the drilling ship belonging to Murphy Oil in international waters known as Block K & L located between Brunei and Mindanao. Of course, the oilmen all packed up their drills and scoops and test tubes and headed for shore to Muara Port in Brunei lah...

    (Sadly that Block K & L which they snatched from submarine-less Brunei was presented back in 2010 to Brunei for joint exploration... )

    In relatively shallow waters around the peninsula, our Scorpenes are sitting ducks. What we really need are light frigates and surface patrol crafts.

    I remember that. Billions paid to PSC ( Penang Shipbuilding Corporation) but no vessels delivered. Later Boustead took over the whole company and project.

    I believe the ex-Boss of PSC absconded and is hibernating in the UK still.
