The demand for military drones made by Turkey is gradually increasing in different countries of the world. Turkish drones’ capabilities, especially as low-cost mass destruction warplanes, have created markets in Europe, Africa and Asia. In addition to drones, the demand for Turkish missiles and warships is increasing by leaps and bounds in various countries. In the meantime, several countries, including the nuclear-powered country Pakistan, are using Turkish-made warships. The Royal Malaysian Navy has decided to purchase three warships from Türkiye.

According to a report by Daily Sabah, Malaysia has signed an agreement to supply three corvettes for its navy from Turkey. Malaysian Defense Minister Mohd Khaled Nordin handed over the letter of acceptance of Malaysia to the Turkish authorities for the procurement of these corvettes manufactured by the Turkish defense company STM.

Turkish Presidency of Defense Industries said in a statement. Turkish Defense Industry President Haluk Gorgun, who attended an event in Ankara, said that an agreement to purchase warships will take the level of strategic relations between the two countries to a new level.

He said, the successful implementation of this project will ensure that the Turkish defense industry will be given priority in other projects of the Royal Malaysian Navy which are planned to be implemented in the coming days.

According to Türkiye, the warships supplied to the Malayan Navy will have at least 50 combat technologies from Turkish defense companies. These include Havelsan, Aselsan and Rocketsan. At that time, the president of the Turkish defense industry said that Turkey shares defense technology and expert support with its fellow countries.

Under the supply contract for the Malayan Navy, these warships are said to be about 100 meters long and weigh 2,500 tons. The warships will have a maximum speed of 26 knots, a helicopter landing platform and the capacity to carry 100 troops, Turkey said.
