Aselsan Strengthens its Presence in Malaysia

Within the scope of the contract signed between Aselsan and a Malaysian shipyard, the 30mm SMASH Remote Controlled Stabilized Naval Gun System and the 12.7mm Machine Gun will be integrated to the boats to be manufactured as per the requirements of the Malaysian Coast Guard Command.

The deliveries are planned to be completed between 2019 and 2020.

Aselsan’s Remote Controlled Weapon Systems, which are currently taking part in the inventories of the Turkish Naval Forces Command, Coast Guard Command, Land Forces Command and the Security General Directorate, were preferred by The Armed Forces of a total of fourteen countries apart from Turkey.

Such a contract is also important for the continuing increase of Aselsan’s exports of Weapon Systems to the Southeast Asian region. In 2017, Aselsan exported six 30mm SMASH Remote Controlled Stabilized Weapon Systems to Malaysia as part of the Malaysian Coast Guard Command’s requirements.

Equipped with 30mm weapon, SMASH is a Remote Controlled Stabilized Naval Gun System with high stabilization performance and automatic target tracking capability. It is regarded as a versatile and effective system that can be integrated into warships, coast guard and patrol boats, landing ships and other maritime platforms.
