The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) is waiting for the airborne warning and control system (AWACS) to have full control of air surveillance for tactical and defensive missions.

The system was sought for as part of the Seventh Malaysia Plan (7MP) and the RMAF is still waiting for it in the 10MP, air force chief General Tan Sri Rodzali Daud said.

About 12 Eurocopter EC725s will be delivered to the air force by 2014, along with Airbus A400M strategic transport aircraft in 2015.

The RMAF requires 27 E725 aircraft to replace the existing Nuri aircraft fleet, according to Bernama.

The RMAF is currently equipped with ground radar and land command in the country’s air surveillance system.
