LIMA 2019: Malaysia awards only one LCS missile contract

28th March 2019 - 13:00 GMT | by Gordon Arthur in Langkawi


Malaysia’s six Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) will be armed with Naval Strike Missiles (NSM) anti-ship missiles and VL MICA surface-to-air missiles. However, while a deal for the NSM was one of seven contracts signed at LIMA 2019 on 28 March, conspicuous by its absence was any contract for the VL MICA.

The NSM will be installed aboard the LCS being built by Boustead Heavy Industries Corporation (BHIC) for the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN).

Kongsberg announced on 9 April 2015 that it had received a letter of award to supply shipboard equipment (i.e. launchers) for the 350kg NSM to Malaysia.
