Arming to surrender



Malaysia and Brunei combine geography and oil as their main source of revenue. And they have one common enemy for two, or rather, a rival.

Malaysia consists of two isolated parts - on the Malacca Peninsula and on Kalimantan. This is a monarchy. Possessing significant oil reserves, the country has built up sufficiently powerful forces on export revenues and is trying to build its own military-industrial complex. Earlier weapon It was acquired mainly in the USA and Great Britain, but now purchases are diversified.

Sultan's Guard

The microscopic state of Brunei on Kalimantan Island gained independence from the UK in 1984. Bordering only Malaysia and entering ASEAN, militarily, the sultanate continues to focus on the former metropolis. Due to its considerable oil reserves, the country has large financial resources, but due to the small population it is unable to create serious aircraft.

The ground forces include the 3 infantry battalion and one support (as part of the engineering and reconnaissance squadrons). The Light Infantry Battalion and the Gurkha 2 Battalion are considered reserve.

Armed with 16 English light tanks "Scorpion", 37 French armored personnel carriers VAB-VTT and 8 auxiliary machines based on them, 24 English mortar L16. The air force consists of 4 squadrons, but do not have combat aircraft. Conventionally, the 1 base patrol of the CN-235M of Indonesian production can be considered as such. There are up to 4 Swiss PC-7 training aircraft and more 40 helicopters (1 Bell-214, up to 6 Bell-206, up to 12 Bell-212, up to 18 S-70, up to 7 B-105). The Air Force includes 3 passenger liners (European A340, American Boeing 747 and Boeing 767), intended for the transportation of the Sultan and his family. Ground defense includes the 12 English Rapira air defense missile systems and 72 French Mistral MANPADS.

The Navy has 4 rocket (like Darussalam), 7 sentry (4 Itjihad, 3 Pervira), 24 patrol and 4 amphibious boats.
The contingents of Great Britain (Gurkha battalion, 3 helicopter) and Singapore (training units, AS332 helicopters) are stationed in Brunei.

Both Malaysia and Brunei are involved in a dispute with China over the Spratly Islands, but are obviously incapable of resisting the PLA, so they will have to either negotiate with Beijing or surrender. Of course, they tend to the first option. A close relationship with the United States and even more so with the UK does not guarantee protection from China at all. Anglo-Saxons would never even die in distant Asian countries.

    I have long been simulating Brunei for the fact that in the difficult post-war situation they achieved the same independence. The fact that this is an absolute monarchy does not bother me at all. Politics, both internal and external, are basically adequate. Sometimes scandals inside the clan or outrageous sultan amuse the world community, well, Allah is with them!

      Are you joking like that? Who is there that "achieved" ?! The structure was created to pump money to England under the new, "independent" flag, since classical colonialism had to be scrapped. Now, the English owners, after decades of confronting the “cousins,” can no longer keep this wallet in their hands.
      But the "cousins" are no longer in shape, alas. So, the one who is able to keep it in his pocket will now pick up the orphan wallet. Alas, most likely this, of course, is China.

        Well, I don’t know who in Brunei and what he created and for what purpose, after all, I was not an orientalist with a Bruneian bias, but I had to fight fairly with Malaysia for my independence in 1962. But you are right, the British had to shake off all these graters, and of course they had something to do with it. But my sympathy for Brunei didn’t diminish from that at all. And where do you see absolutely independent states? Especially the former colonies of the former Empire!

        Mikhail3 But the "cousins" are no longer in shape, alas.

        Don’t worry about Britain, it’s fine with the uniform if they have a WB in Brunei (it’s good to control shipping and passing PLA ships from there), i.e. their Gibraltar, and the Americans are not far on the British same Chagos archipelago ....
        Brunei is not only a member of ASEAN, but also of the British Commonwealth of Nations, so that the PRC will not break anything there, it will be necessary to join ANZUS ...

          I am not worried about England because the British call the "cousins" the Americans. Falling into global analysis, it’s worth, at a minimum, to know such cute little things. Otherwise, your analysis will always be suitable only for analysis ....

            And you, my friend Troll, if you write about the "cousins", after the previously written nonsense:
            Now, the English owners, after decades of confronting the “cousins,” can no longer keep this wallet in their hands. But the "cousins" are no longer in shape, alas.

            Both countries control the Asia-Pacific region better than anyone and, accordingly, the English "military" supplements the American one, they are all cheerful and cheerful, and unlike us they have WB in this region and experience of military operations .....
            It will be quite possible to turn off the light in this region ....
            Otherwise, your analysis will always be suitable only for analysis ....

            And I wish you the same, successfully pass your tests ......

              Okay. In general, the whole before last and the last century there was a confrontation between England and the United States. The USA at first timidly bit, and then already with might and main broke the Empire, over which the sun never set. The confrontation was now cold, then turned into hot, and, which is generally cool, while both parts of the Anglo-Saxon world did not stop mutual penetration. A sort of fight right during intercourse.
              The experience of military operations and so on ... In general, the United States cut off markets and money from the Empire in pieces. At the same time, not forgetting to spit out a good piece of the British PERSONALLY hurt by another American victory. So the Empire was losing, but everything was done with pleasant smiles.
              Brunei is another episode of absorption. But it happened only when the Americans, by inertia, still tear the remaining pieces, but are no longer able to absorb. Such is the story with geography.
              Read more, thinking will become more complicated, you will understand much more than now ...

                Read the book "To the East and West of Suez", I don’t remember the author, on the whole I agree with you, you just simplify everything ....

                  So "hard" to talk is meaningless. You, as usual, get lost in the trifles loudly rattling in your ear. Who cares what contracts they are “bound” to? Anglo-Saxon can not be bound by agreement, paper, promise. This property of the Anglo-Saxon mind was very shocking in its time to the Japanese.
                  The Japanese simply agreed or did not agree, and that’s it. And then they had to establish business with the USA, and they were amazed to find out that they need lawyers. Mountains of papers will be signed. Without this, there will be nothing at all, never, for nothing.
                  And then the Japanese understood another thing. All these pieces of paper, lawyers, fun ... all this is just a way at the right time to throw any agreements and stick a knife in your back. Referring to paragraph 2374 in the 857 annex to the contract number ...
                  Anglo-Saxons have mutual benefits. It's all. Any other kind of contact for them is violence of the strong over the weak. Therefore, they love long speeches about honor, fidelity, valor, dignity and other qualities that delight them, as the old painting that you never buy admires ...

      Malaysia - crutches for the food industry in Russia. 18% of Russian cheeses and other dairy products are made on the basis of their palm oil. hi

        The cows still remained in some places, but the butter goes mainly to Moscow. In this matter we differ little from the USSR.

          What heresy is there in all cities of the Russian Federation, except Moscow, there is no butter? I can imagine how food reconnaissance units are currently taking milk from honest farmers in Primorye, and butter from processing enterprises, to be sent to Moscow ....

          Well, you’re exaggerating, we (and, it seems, you) in Altai have no problems with butter. Rather, there is, what kind of manufacturer to take, a considerable choice.

    Khramchikhin has been known for many years as a mongrel that breres to China - he has been known to me in this capacity for at least seven years.
