Royal Malaysia Air Force

I heard that Malaysia Goverment has already signed a contract of procuring 18 SU-30MKM from Russia. But what about the F/A-18F Super Hornet? Does Malaysia plan to get another batch of super pugs? Pls give me some info..thks!

Welcome to the Forum!

No contract has been signed yet, or Boeing didn't reported it yet, which seems unlikely,

I am not sure Malaysia is still interested, it said it was, but then signed the Sukhoi contract. It was thought Malaysia was interested in a mixed fleet. But I am not so sure, maybe they'll wait for the Sukhois to arrive, before making a decision on funding more fighters.

Updated F/A-18F super hornet block 2 has been promoted to RMAF, and i wonder that does Malaysia gov afford to maintain it instead of buying the Superbug...who knows? >:D

I think Malaysia is going the way of the SU-30, kinda like Venezuela. They gonna keep their F/A-18D as the only hornet model in a strike role.
