Pesawat2 Jet Pejuang MIG 29 TUDM Akan di"Bersarakan" Secara Berperingkat-peringkat - Adakah Ia Tindakan Yang Bijak? Part 2



Susulan posting yang terdahulu, penulis lampirkan artikel-artikel yang memuatkan hasrat Kerajaan Malaysia untuk "membersarakan" pesawat-pesawat jet pejuang, Mikoyan MIG 29N/NUB.


Penulis sememangnya "tersangat" meminati jet-jet pejuang, sayangnya zaman penulis menamatkan pengajian pada tahun 1990, negara ketika itu dikejutkan dengan kemalangan demi kemalangan pesawat-pesawat pejuang negara yang ketika itu hanya bersandarkan kepada pesawat-pesawat uzur terpakai dari jenis F 5E, F 5F dan A4 Skyhawk.


Walaupun telah lebih 15 tahun tidak membeli majalah "Take Off" iaitu majalah berkaitan jet-jet pejuang dari seluruh dunia, itu tidak bermakna penulis tidak mengikuti perkembangannya.


Berikut adalah diantara petikan-petikan akhbar yang melahirkan hasrat kerajaan untuk menghentikan penggunaan jet-jet pejuang MIG 29.

Parliament: MiG-29s to be phased out by end-2010
By ZULKIFLI ABD RAHMAN and LOH FOON FONG


KUALA LUMPUR: The Royal Malaysian Air Force’s (RMAF) MiG-29 fighter jets will be gradually phased out and replaced by new interceptor aircraft by Dec 31 2010 due to rising operational and maintenance costs, Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said.

He said replacement aircraft was needed due to increasing maintenence costs and that the MiG-29s were nearing their lifespan limit of 10 years. Two such aircraft had also crashed in 1998 and 2005.


Zahid said only 10 MiG-29s will be used for airspace defence and this will be reduced to six aircraft until December next year.


“The Government will save RM260mil per year in maintenance costs and these savings will be used to maintain other types of aircraft in the RMAF inventory,” he told Datuk Abd Rahman Dahlan (BN-Kota Belud).


Abd Rahman also asked why Malaysia had bought the MiG-29s. “Malaysia bought the MiG-29s at a relatively low price, but later on the RMAF had to contend with higher expenses in spare parts replacement and maintenence work,” he added.


Zahid replied that when Malaysia bought 18 MiG-29 aircraft in 1993, the jet was considered the most capable and versatile fighter aircraft that could be obtained at the time.


He also said that each MiG-29 needed to undergo preventive and restoration work which cost RM10mil and RM7mil for engine overhaul every year after it completes a flight time of between 1,000 hours and 4,000 hours.


“The MiG-29s will be replaced by 18 Russian-made Sukhoi SU30MKM fighter jets which the Government had just acquired,” he added.


Later, at the Parliament lobby, Zahid the cost to maintain the MiGs was too high because the jets also needed to be sent to Russia for overhaul work.


Zahid said many countries have also moved towards obtaining fighter jets with multi-role combat capabilities. “We are assessing whether to get the new jets from the United States, France, Sweden or Britain. The purchase will also depend on the country’s economic recovery,” he added.

RMAF MIG29 Jets To Be Phased Out - Zahid
By: Ramjit-->


BAGAN DATOH, June 1 (Bernama) -- The MIG-29N fighter jets of the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) will be replaced with other interceptor jets to strengthen the force. Defence Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the matter had been discussed with RMAF chief General Tan Sri Azizan Ariffin and the aircraft would be replaced soon. "I have decided that from next month, the aircraft be phased out and we should find a way to sell them to certain companies or countries approved by the United Nations," he told reporters after visiting the victims of a storm in Rungkup, here, Monday.


On the Sukhoi fighter jets received recently, he said the preparedness of the squadron stationed at the RMAF base in Gong Kedak, Kelantan had been proven as the members had received sufficient simulator training and other forms of training continuously.

Sekitar tahun 1993, ketika kerajaan mengumumkan bahawa negara akan membeli jet-jet pejuang ini, penulis bersama-sama ramai lagi rakyaat negara merasa begitu berbangga. Penulis masih ingat bahawa, Kerajaan juga ada memaklumkan bahawa injin turbin MIG 29 negara, perlu diservis setiap 2000 jam penerbangan dan selepas 2000 jam penerbangan berikutnya, injin jet turbin tersebut perlu ditukar baru. Itu adalah biasa untuk sebuah jet pejuang jenis supersonik. Jadi adakah wajar pesawat-pesawat pejuang yang baru berusia sekitar 12 tahun ini dilupuskan?
Jangan lupa untuk mengikuti sambungan artikel ini esok!!!!!!

  2. assalamualaikum, hanya ingin melontar kan sedikit pandangan..... tidak dinafikan segala perancangan pembelian atau penamatan pentauliahan aset negara adalah langkah strategik. Saya suka cara penulis mengolah.... dah tentunya setiap olahan penulis lebih menampakkan kebanggaan penulis untuk aset strategik negara yang terbaharu...namun penulis aga skeptikal untuk penamatan tauliahan aset strategik negara dan dalam hal ini isu MIG-29. Saya hanya ingin menambah....tidak kah kemungkinan penamatan pentauliahan ini sebagai strategi ampuh memandangkan MIG259 sudah agak lama di persada udara dan sudah tentunya pihak musuh sudah arif akan keupayaan jet MIG29 sehingga sudah tahu cara terbaik atau setiap kelebihannya sudah boleh dibaca oleh musuh untuk melumpuhkan keupayaannya meskipun ianya merupakan jet terpantas di udara berbanding yang lainnya. Tntunya kerajaan atau pihak TUDM yang arif mengenainya lebih rela menamatkan penggunaan MIG29 daripada mengorbankan pertahanan negara, dengan membolehkan aset lain yg lebih canggih di bawa masuk. Boleh tuan setuju dengan pandangan ini?
