The Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) has awarded Eurocopter a E42 million ($38 million) contract to deliver six AS 555 SN Fennec unarmed twin-turbine helicopters in late 2003 for training and over-the-horizon targeting.

Signed during the LIMA (Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace) 2001 exhibition, the order is intended to complement the six AgustaWestland Super Lynx 300s that will be delivered to the RMN from April 2003.

In a further development, Matra BAe Dynamics received a contract during the exhibition to arm the RMN's Super Lynx aircraft with the company's Sea Skua air-launched anti-ship missile. Company and service officials declined to provide details of the number of missiles to be acquired or the total cost.
