The Malaysian Armed Forces is the backbone of Malaysia’s military might and is in charge of protecting the borders and her land assets. The MAF played a very important role and contributed significantly to the war effort during the hostile period of 1948-1989.

It was en era marked with bloodshed and terrorism activities initiated by PKM (Parti Komunis Malaya / Malayan Communist Party) in an effort to free Tanah Melayu (now Malaysia) from British rule forcefully.The period was marked by incidents of massacre and extortion of local Tanah Melayu’s residents who are comfortable under the British rule and refuse to render support towards PKM’s cause.

The following are some of Malaysia’s olden military hardware on display at Muzium Angkatan Tentera Malaysia in Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan.

PS: As you might guess, I’m obsessed with tanks and half tracks.

One of the first thing you will see upon entering the museum, an old decommissioned M32-18 courtesy of TUDM (Tentera Udara Diraja Malaysia / The Royal Malaysian Air Force)

I honestly felt like driving one of these cuties home.

My 3 year old cousin manning one of the guns they have lying around in the show room.

This is probably the only full-track tank at the museum, I wish they had showcased more.

Not exactly sure what did is but it looks like one of the anti-aircraft cannons I’ve seen in some RTS games (Command & Conquer Red Alert).

Probably one of the oldest model around at the museum. They even have a spare rim to boot!

Military crane anyone?
