Despite reports last year that the fleet would be retired by the end of 2010 and sold on to a third party country, the decision to retain the capability will see six aircraft retired and 10 kept in service and maintained by Aerospace Technology System, formerly Malaysian Russian Aviation Services.
Malaysia also operates eight F/A-18D Hornets and a similar number of Su-30MKM Flankers.
