Ini bukan KD Altantuya.. tetapi Kapal Selam sebelumnya..

Adakah anda pernah dengar tentang dua buah Kapal Selam ini?

Once upon a time.. On Oct the 18 year 200, the two Zwaardvis(2)-class submarines, Zwaardvis(2) and Tijgerhaai(2), were transported to the heavy-dock vessel Smit Explorer.

This vessel departed on Oct 20 and transported the two submarines to Malaysia. The transport arrived in Lumut (Malaysia) on Dec 14. The submarines will be refitted, with RDM assistance, at the PSC-Naval Dockyard Sdn Bhd in Lumut. After the refit they will be offered to the Malaysian navy as lease/training boats.
