Description: The Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) Second Generation Patrol Vessel (SGPV) Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is a variant of the DCNS Gowind Combat Corvette built in Malaysia by Boustead Holding Berhad. The ship is intended to serve as an offshore patrol vessel as well as a light frigate equipped with state-of-the-art missile systems. The 2,750-ton class stealth vessel features a Combined Diesel And Diesel (CODAD) propulsion system with waterjets for optimal operation in shallow waters. These ships' sensor suite builds around the Thales SMART-S Mk2 radar and the CAPTAS 2 sonar system along with the Rheinmetall TMEO Mk2 electro-optical surveillance system and the TMX/EO Mk2 fire control radar. The RMN plans call for the procurement of six SGPVs to be commissioned between 2015 and 2020. As of April 2015 the RMN plan is to commission the lead ship in 2020.

The SGPV weapon systems consists of a 57mm Mk3 dual purpose naval gun, eight NSM (formerly MM40 Block 3 Exocet) anti-ship missiles, 12 Sylver vertical launching systems with Mica surface-to-air missiles and two 30mm remotely operated guns. Besides, the weapon system relies on the SETIS combat management system. The ship features a flight deck and hangar for operation of a single Super Lynx 300 helicopter or alternatively AS355 Fennec or EC725 helicopters.
