In 2002, Malaysia ordered two Scorpene Submarines. The first Malaysian Scorpene submarine, KD Tunku Abdul Rahman, sail home on the 3rd of September 2009 and is now undergoing tropical water and weapons trial off the waters of Sabah. The second Scorpene submarine, KD Tun Razak, is expected to arrive home by July this year.
