Royal Malaysian Navy


The Royal Malaysian Navy has its genesis in the Straits States Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve established a mere one year after the formation of the Royal Malay Regiment in 1933. The Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) came into being as a volunteer force to augment British naval forces during World War II. It served in the area as a colonial defense unit until independence in 1957, at which time it was transferred to the new government. 2016 the RMN was set to consolidate all its naval units from 15 classes to five in an effort to strengthen the country’s maritime security. The five new classes are the Littoral Mission Ships (LMS); Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) [formerly the Second Generation Patrol Vessel (SGPV)]; New Generation Patrol Vessels; Multi-Support Ships (MRSS); and submarines.
