Among the key highlights at the BAE Systems exhibition stand in Hall 1 of the Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre (MIEC) is a Eurofighter Typhoon flight simulator and a full-scale replica of the aircraft on display outdoors.

This is an important event on BAE Systems’ global calendar as we continue to grow our presence in Malaysia and across Asia. We’ve been a part of LIMA since it was first held in 1991, a reflection of our long history here and commitment to Malaysia,” said John Brosnan, BAE Systems Managing Director for South East Asia.

We are confident on the industry’s business outlook here in Malaysia and LIMA’17 is the ideal platform to showcase our local partnerships in aerospace engineering, cybersecurity and education,

We’ve created 7,100 jobs in Malaysia through our offset activities and the Eurofighter Typhoon industrial package currently offered to the RMAF is set to create 21,000 jobs in the future,” he added.

BAE Systems has been supporting Malaysian businesses and the Malaysian Armed Forces with trusted and proven solutions across land, sea, air and cyber defence for over 50 years from its regional headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.
