Royal Malaysian Navy On Board USS Ohio

  • Authorities

Sailors from the U.S. Navy’s guided-missile submarine USS Ohio (SSGN 726) gave a tour to Sailors of the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) and Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), while in Sepanggar, Malaysia on November 17.

The purpose of the tour was to give Malaysian sailors a look into how U.S. submariners live and work aboard one of the largest submarines in the U.S. Navy.

While aboard, the Malaysian Sailors were shown the torpedo room, battle management center, main control center, missile control center, diesel generator, dry dock shelters, medical and crew’s mess.

USS Emory S. Land (AS 39) and Ohio’s visit to Malaysia continues the U.S. Navy’s ongoing commitment to theater security, cooperation and friendship with local partner navies.

Emory S. Land is a forward deployed expeditionary submarine tender on an extended deployment conducting coordinated tended moorings and afloat maintenance in the U.S. 5th and 7th Fleet areas of operations.
