KUALA LUMPUR, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Morinformsistema-Agat concern, known as the developer and producer of missile armaments and designer of automated control systems for submarines and warships, may take part in the building of a destroyer for the Malaysian Navy, the consortium’s press secretary Maria Vorobyova told IITAR-TASS on Wednesday at the 14th Defense Services Asia (DSA2014) international exhibition and conference.
“We have conducted negotiations with Malaysia’s state shipbuilding company Boustead Naval Shipyard. We discussed two promising projects, one of which is the construction of a destroyer for the Malaysian Navy,” she said.
According to Vorobyova, the Malaysian side has stated the ship’s characteristics - the length, deadweight, as well as the requirements for the destroyer’s missile and artillery armament. “We talked of our possible participation in the issues related to the ship’s missile and artillery fire control systems. We also discussed the possibility of installing on board the radar systems of our own make and our tactical control system,” the press secretary added.
Referring to another promising project, Vorobyova said that it was about modernization of a number of missile patrol boats: the improvement of the missile armament, its replacement with artillery armament and issues of matching this armament with the boat’s tactical control system. She added that in addition to the consortium’s technical experts, representatives of Russia’s arms exporter Rosoboronexport took part in the negotiations.
