Malaysia signs MoU with Turkiye to buy modern Turkish corvette warships

“The successful execution of this project will ensure that the Turkish defence industry is prioritised as a provider for the Royal Malaysian Navy’s future projects under the 15 to 5 Transformation Program,” Gorgun said.

Malaysia has signed a memorandum of understanding to purchase three Turkish corvette warships, as announced by Türkiye’s Secretariat of Defence Industries (SSB).

During a ceremony in Ankara, Defence Minister Mohamed Khaled Nordin presented Malaysia’s letter of acceptance to procure the naval vessels, which will be built by the Turkish defence firm STM, according to a statement from the SSB on Monday.

SSB President Haluk Gorgun, who attended the event at the secretariat, stated that the memorandum of understanding signifies a new chapter in the strategic partnership between the defence industries of the two countries.

“The successful execution of this project will ensure that the Turkish defence industry is prioritised as a provider for the Royal Malaysian Navy’s future projects under the 15 to 5 Transformation Program,” Gorgun said.

He emphasized that Türkiye aims to “develop together with friendly and brotherly countries, sharing our technologies, know-how, and expertise in the defence industry.”
