Description
The Royal Malaysian Navy Second Generation Patrol Vessel (SGPV), also referred to as Littoral combat ships (LCS) are a class of six stealth frigates currently being built in Malaysia by Boustead (BHIC) based on DCNS Gowind 2500 design. Construction of the first vessel of the class started at the end of 2014 with a delivery expected for 2017 or 2018. Based on a corvette design, the Gowind LCS are considered frigates because of their increase size and displacement and will bring a significant capability step to the Royal Malaysian Navy.

Gowind 2500 is DCNS’ response to 21st century defence and security challenges, combining unrivalled stealth features, resilience and high availability at sea with outstanding AAW, ASW and ASuW performances. The vessel is a resilient and powerful surface combatant designed to perform complex naval operations as well as low intensity maritime security missions, through a 360° sensors coverage and deployable assets.

Gowind 2500 simultaneously detects, tracks and engages multiple airborne, surface as well as submarine threats, providing the best performance in all warfare domains. Gowind 2500 offers exceptional stealth capabilities with reduced radiated noise and Radar Cross Section (RCS) significantly improving the tactical advantage compared with other ships of her class.
