The Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) has selected the SMASH 30 mm remote controlled stabilised naval gun system from Turkish defence company Aselsan for the three new offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) it is acquiring from local shipbuilding joint venture THHE Destini.

Speaking to Jane’s at the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (LIMA) exhibition on 22 March, an official from the service has also confirmed that the system will be positioned as the OPV’s primary weapon, and will be complemented by a stern-facing 12.7 mm machine gun position.

The same type of weapon has previously been selected by the service for another class of newbuildings that the service is anticipating from Destini Shipbuilding & Engineering: the 44 m New Generation Patrol Craft (NGPC).
