Malaysia’s first submarine, “KD Tunku Abdul Rahman”, docks in Port Klang outside Kuala Lumpur September 3, 2009. The French-made “KD Tunku Abdul Rahman”, the first of the two Scorpene-class diesel-electric submarines ordered by the Malaysian Navy, made a port call on Thursday in Port Klang for a welcoming ceremony on its maiden voyage from Toulon in France to Sepanggar in east Malaysia. The “KD Tunku Abdul Rahman” was named after the Malaysian first Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj.
