Scorpene - Malaysia Silent Killer

A sneak peek at Malaysia's silent killer and its answer to the growing threat in the South China Seas.  When the Malaysian King went for a ride on the sub, the Chinese wasn't very happy about it.

Pulau Layang-Layang - Gem or Curse?

This little Malaysian Isle has more birds than humans calling it home, but at any moment now, it would turn into a potential flashpoint in a regional power grab.  According to the navy guys we spoke to, this remote outpost -located 175 nautical miles from Labuan in the waters of Malaysian shores - has many 'visitors' but they come mostly in their submarines. (Chinese & the US Navy were the regulars).

Thus it comes as no surprise that some of the daily routines for Malaysian sailors stationed in Pulau Layang-Layang involve training their cannons out to the sea.  Frame this picturesque island in your mind now before it disappears in a big ball of fire.
