Malaysian Army Aviation

February 7, 2014 - 11:20pm
Malaysia’s air force C-130 transports will be upgraded with avionics and navigation systems to ensure they meet international civil aviation standards.

The current political climate and government austerity measures in Malaysia mean that a number of programs for the Malaysian armed forces look likely to be postponed until the time frame of the 11th Malaysia Plan, which covers government spending for the period of 2016-2020. A combination of public dissatisfaction over the cutting of government subsidies and the government’s need to balance an increasing deficit has made spending on military procurement politically unviable at the moment.
