Air force set to seal deals for radars, sensors
RMAF chief says no plans to buy jet fighters and other assets due to budget constraints
THE Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) is expected to seal several
contracts at this year's Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace
exhibition (Lima 2011).
Air force chief General Tan Sri Rodzali Daud said among the contracts
lined up were for the acquisition of radars, sensors and communication
equipment, which would beef up the country's air defence.
"Several letters of offer and acceptance will be inked during the
exhibition. However, owing to budget constraints, the government is
unable to approve the procurement of larger assets for the air force for
the time being. "This includes the purchase of new-generation aircraft and defence equipment."
