The country needs more patriotic people. Malaysia BOLEH!
Nice pictures on the parade rehearsal. I was passing by Museum Negara the other day and most of our armor were parked there. Got a close look at the ASTROS II and ACV-300's. Nice sight.
I dont know what is this ..what i understand is the mobile rocket launcher ..picture taken this morning on my way to work .. they are preparing for the final rehearsal before the day of "Merdeka" . The 50th year of Malaysia National day
Jernas SAM from 34 RAD
the low pass by Su-30MKMs was nice right? hehe
By the way do any one from Malayasia happen to have any kind of information about a Malayasian prince named Tinku(don't remember which province) who was trained at Indian NDA & IMA and was commisioned into the Indian Army and will serve into the Indian Army for some time before returning to Malaysia. He took part in 2007's Republic Day parade.
Thanks for all the interesting pictures.
The Indian Full Dress is good looking. It doesn't change too much since the British Raj.
Why a Malaysian prince can serve in the Indian army?
and, what is his unit? It seems to be cavalry, but which one?!
Wikipedia says, his Cavalry unit is "the world's only non-ceremonial horse-mounted cavalry". So, according to this, he is not just a show-and-go officer, but leader of a true battle unit. Well, dunno how far Wikipedia is a reliable source, though ^^
