Indonesian PT Pal and Malaysian Bousted Naval Shipyard are to collaborate on construction of a multirole support ship (MRSS) for Royal Malaysian Navy. The two companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 2 November at Indo Defence 2016 exhibition, held in Jakarta. If the contract is awarded to BNS, this would be a first for these two countries, to work on a major vessel. The MRSS has an overall length of about 150 m and an overall beam of about 24 m. A 76 mm naval gun and several 12,7 mm macgine guns can be mounted on the vessel.
