KD Tun Razak arrives at home base
It's been awhile since I made any posting but today seems a good day to start again by making a note of our second submarine arrival at her home base in Sepanggar Kota Kinabalu Sabah after transit in Lumut Base, Perak.
I just hope that she will not receive any pot shots by so-called military experts especially on her ability to dive like her sister suffered especially when going through scheduled maintenance before comprehensive sea trials in the tropical waters of the region. I wonder if they thought that the submarine was on the surface the whole voyage when she sailed 7283 nautical miles through the Mediterranean Sea, Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean and the Malacca Straits before reaching home. Maybe because she was on the surface when she made her port of calls at Alexandria (Egypt), Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), Salalah (Oman) and Cochin (India) before arriving in Lumut in the photo below, they thought she did the same throughout the voyage. Well let's just wait and see what these 'experts' have to say in the future.
