    Background: THE MALAYSIAN NAVY HAS TWO MORE BOATS TO MEET THE CHALLENGE OF INDONESIAN CONFRONTATION ON THE HIGH SEAS. THE BOATS -- SRI SARAWAK AND SRI SABAH -- BUILT IN PORTSMOUTH, BRITAIN, ARRIVED IN SINGAPORE TODAY (MONDAY). EACH BOAT COAST THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT TWO MILLION DOLLARS (ABOUT 235,000 STERLING).

    THE BOATS ARE FULLY EQUIPPED WITH RADARS, ROCKET LAUNCHERS, AND SWEDISH 40/70MM GUNS. THE BOATS ARE ALSO INSTALLED WITH EVAPORATORS WHICH CAN CONVERT SEA WATER INTO FRESH WATER FOR DRINKING. THE SPEED OF THE BOATS IS A CLOSELY GUARDED SECRET.

    EACH BOAT HAS A COMPLIMENT OF 18 RATINGS AND THREE OFFICERS. TWO SIMILAR BOATS ARE ON THEIR WAY TO MALAYSIA. THEY WERE WELCOMED AT THE WHARF BY THEIR FAMILIES AND MALAYSIAN NAVY OFFICIALS.

    THE BOATS WILL SHORTLY JOIN OTHER MALAYSIAN NAVY VESSELS ON PATROL DUTIES AROUND THE MALAYSIAN TERRITORIAL WATERS.
