The Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) has completed full system acceptance of its new ForceShield ground-based air defence system, Thales announced on 14 November.

The next generation of short-range air defence capability will now enter service with the MAF.

In addition to StarStreak missiles, the system integrates the Control Master 200 radar and weapon coordination systems, Rapid Ranger and Rapid Rover mobile weapon systems and the next-generation Lightweight Multiple Launcher, as well as associated communications.

Thomas Pistre, country director of Thales in Malaysia, said: 'Thales is proud of the strong collaboration we have with the MAF and Global Komited that have enabled us to reach this successful milestone that supports the safety and security of Malaysian skies.'
