    May I ask if you know anything about the history of this marker / monument, esp when it was installed? How old is the pic and do you have its source?

    Source is as stated. Its been sometime since I posted so I can't really recall. If I had to guess photos would be from early to mid 80s

    Going by the age and number of these obelisks, I think I've found what I was looking for. My uncle told me when worked at an engineering firm a long time ago, Mindef had him design a number of these markers, one for each of our rocks. They were shipped out to the Spratlys then placed on the rocks by Nuri. After the markers were delivered, an officer came back with a request for another copy. He said a marker had been placed on a Filipino island by mistake and the Filipinos had blown it up. I never thought I'd chance upon the pictures so soon after hearing about them.

    Just give it a variable depth sonar and it would be perfect. Actually more Malaysian vessels could use one. RMN won't have one until the Gowind LCS, right?

    Do we have any info on whether weapons are here or what weapons were purchased?

    I've read AA-10, -11 and -12 (MiG-29N already has these) and Kh-31 cruise missiles are "likely" purchased, and we've seen the OFAB bombs and UB32 rocket pods. How about Brahmos or Western weapons for the Damocles? How many Damocles pods do we have?

    Sadly to said, those stone are not mistakenly placed, its because we came first, but who cares, its only a stone, the Filipino navy is a little bit advance from ours, coz they got a left over WWII vessel from the US ( sadly till now ), same goes to some of the rock been taken by the Vietnam tooo.... yup... **** happens.......

    I'm not just saying it happened, it's what the officer told him when he ordered a replacement. It wouldn't be an outrageous mistake especially flying visually without GPS back then. Some of these uninhabited rocks are metres apart and their appearance can change with the tides. Some get completely submerged.

    It's not like we backed down when the Filipinos came with a bigger ship than ours. Maybe the spot was so remote that no one would know until the next day's patrol.
