Malaysian Armed Forces Commandos Occupied the Spratly Islands

The sacrifice of the Malaysian Commando in capturing Pulau Layang-Layang

The issue of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea continues to be a major conflict in the Southeast Asian region. This is because apart from Asean countries such as the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia and Vietnam, the Chinese also claims all or part of the territory in the Spratly Islands, which is believed to have mineral and oil resources.

For Malaysia, only Pulau Layang-Layang is a symbol of our country’s sovereignty in the middle of the vast ocean of the South China Sea until now.

In the early 80’s, there was no Pulau Layang-layang. All there was was a coral reef. But as a result of the wisdom of the then Prime Minister, the eminent statesman Tun Dr Mahathir, he ordered our commando team to capture the reef and turn it into an island.

Tun’s quick move to order our troops to control the island proves that the country’s sovereignty is always protected by the government.

Tun Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad: Capture Station Lima by any means.

Tun Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad: Capture Station Lima by any means.

In the early 80s, where there was Pulau Layang-Layang, there was only a reef.

Former Prime Minister Tun Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad ordered the Malaysian Armed Forces (MAF) to take control of the area.

So the MAF sent personnel from the Special Operations Regiment (RGK) to occupy a reef that was only the size of a monkey’s crotch, at that time the Naval Special Forces (Paskal) did not participate.

Thank goodness, our brave commandos conquered the Layang-Layang Reef with whatever strength they had.

The first step was to send a commando, at that time Station Lima had not been built, when the sea water rose, our commandos struggled to climb trees and slept all night with a thousand difficulties in the face of strong winds and heavy rains.

In the process, temporary settlements built from boards and timber were built by a combination of army, navy and all deliveries were made by Nuri helicopters belonging to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF).

The trust of the country they carry honestly, when others sleep comfortably, they worked hard to establish the sovereignty of the country in a land that is foreign to what they have known before.

In the Mainland of the Peninsula, modules for Lima station are being built.

It is a project full of secrecy because these modules are made in the Peninsula and not in the nearest area either in Sabah or Sarawak.

These modules are then placed on a kind of barge and “camoflaged” with wood and plywood.

They had no choice but to sail through international waters near Singapore and Indonesia.

The RMN warships accompanied the voyage of these barges which took at least 4 weeks to reach.

But apparently there were eyes watching the voyage of this barges, and they consisted of Singapore and Indonesian special forces units.

The first time the Singapore commando tried to approach the barge, without hesitation, the escorting RMN ship gave the order for them to leave the barge, the weapons ready to be fitted with ammunition were directed, the Singapore commando retreated.

The second time, the Indonesian commando went up, and managed to go up, without hesitation the machine guns were fired, after which the Indonesian commando jumped into the sea, killed or injured is not known.

As human beings, the countries involved certainly want what these barges carry because their voyage is accompanied by warships. 17.

Finally, Station LIMA stood majestically

INCIDENTS AT STATION LIMA

Since the border of Layang-Layang is a hot spot, it is not spared from small arms actions. At one point, our army managed to take control of several islands, they mistakenly placed a monument, tomorrow came back, the monument was blown up and replaced with a team of Vietnamese soldiers complete with cannons.

Finally, the top leadership of the country decided to control the existing areas only.

Some of our military units also came across foreign items such as Chinese-made flashlights on Station Lima area, proving that the fort was invaded by Chinese commandos but there was no fighting with China.

Chinese submarines themselves used to be anchored so close to Station Lima but no tension existed, their presence was considered harmless but safety measures were still taken.


Komando Angkatan Tentera Malaysia menduduki kepulauan Spratly.

Pengorbanan Komando Malaysia menawan Pulau Layang–Layang

Pulau Layang–Layang

Isu Kepulauan Spratly di Laut China Selatan terus menjadi konflik besar  di rantau Asia Tenggara . Ini kerana selain negara Asean seperti  Filipina, Brunei, Malaysia dan Vietnam , negara kuasa besar China juga  menuntut seluruh atau sebahagian wilayah di Kepulauan Spratly, yang dipercayai memiliki sumber galian dan minyak.

Bagi negara tercinta kita Malaysia ,  hanya Pulau Layang-Layang  menjadi  lambang kedaulatan negara kita di tengah lautan luas Laut China Selatan hingga kini.

Awal tahun 80 an , tiada pun pulau layang -layang ini  .Yang ada hanyalah  terumbu karang. Tetapi hasil  kebijaksanaan bekas Perdana Menteri ketika itu iaitu negarawan ulung Tun Dr Mahathir , beliau   mengarahkan pasukan komando kita menawan terumbu itu & jadikan ia sebuah pulau .

Langkah pantas Tun mengarahkan tentera kita menguasai pulau berkenaan membuktikan kedaulatan negara sentiasa dilindungi kerajaan .

1.Awal tahun 80an dahulu mana ada Pulau Layang-layang, yang ada hanyalah terumbu.

2.Bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad, negarawan terulung kita kemudian mengarahkan Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM) untuk menguasai kawasan itu.

3.Maka terkial-kial lah ATM menghantar personal dari Rejimen Gerak Khas (RGK) untuk menduduki terumbu yang besarnya hanya sekangkang kera, masa itu Pasukan Khas Laut (Paskal) tidak campur tangan lagi.

4.Kasihan, dengan kudrat komando yang tidak seberapa (depa pun manusia juga, ada anak bini), maka kawan-kawan kita yang gagah berani menakluki Terumbu Layang-layang dengan apa sahaja kekuatan yang ada.

5.Langkah pertama adalah menghantar komando, masa itu stesyen Lima belum dibina, apabila air laut naik, komando-komando kita bersusah payah untuk memanjat pokok dan tidur sepanjang malam dengan seribu kepayahan diharung taufan dan hujan lebat.

6.Dalam proses itu, penempatan sementara dari papan dan kayu kayan dibina oleh gabungan tentera darat, laut dan semua penghantaran dibuat oleh helikopter Nuri milik Tentera Udara Di Raja Malaysia (TUDM).

7.Amanah negara mereka pikul dengan jujur, ketika orang lain tidur dengan selesa, mereka bertungkus lumus untuk memacakkan kedaulatan negara di tanah yang asing dari tanah yang mereka pernah kenal sebelum ini.

8.Di Tanah Besar Semenanjung, modul-modul untuk stesyen Lima sedang dibina.

9.Ia merupakan projek yang penuh dengan kerahsiaan kerana itu modul-modul ini di buat di Semenanjung dan tidak di kawasan terhampir sama ada di Sabah mahupun Sarawak.

10. Modul-modul ini kemudian diletakkan di atas sejenis kapal tongkang atau “barge” dan di  “camoflage” dengan kayu kayan serta papan-papan lapis.

11. Pelayaran mereka mengikuti perairan antarabangsa sebenarnya terpaksa melalui kawasan
berhampiran wilayah Singapura dan Indonesia.

12. Kapal-kapal perang TLDM mengiringi pelayaran tongkang-tongkang ini yang mengambil masa sekurang-kurangnya 4 minggu untuk sampai.

13.Yang celakanya, rupa-rupanya ada mata yang memerhatikan pelayaran tongkang ini, mereka terdiri dari unit-unit pasukan khas Singapura dan Indonesia.

14.Kali pertama komando Singapura cuba mendekati tongkang tersebut, tanpa segan silu, kapal TLDM yang mengiringi memberikan arahan supaya mereka beredar dari menaiki tongkang, senjata yang siap di pasang dengan peluru diarahkan, komando Singapura berundur.

15.Kali kedua, komando Indonesia pula naik, dan berjaya naik, tanpa teragak-agak peluru mesingan dilepaskan, habis bertempiaran komando Indonesia ini terjun ke laut, terbunuh atau cedera tidaklah diketahui.

16.Layaknya sebagai manusia, negara-negara terbabit sudah tentu mahu apa yang dibawa oleh tongkang-tongkang ini sehingga pelayarannya diiringi oleh kapal perang. 

17.Akhirnya stesyen LIMA terpacak megah.

INSIDEN DI STESYEN LIMA

18.Oleh kerana perbatasan Layang-layang ini merupakan kawasan panas, ia tidak terlepas dari aksi-aksi senjata kecil. Satu ketika, tentera kita berjaya menguasai beberapa buah pulau, silapnya mereka meletakkan tugu, esok datang balik, tugu tersebut telah diletupkan dan digantikan dengan pasukan askar Vietnam lengkap dengan meriam.

19.Akhirnya pucuk pimpinan negara menetapkan keputusan untuk menguasai kawasan yang sedia ada sahaja.

20.Ada juga unit tentera kita terserempak dengan barang-barang tinggalan asing macam lampu suluh buatan China di kawasan stesyen Lima membuktikan bahawa kubu tersebut dicerobohi oleh komando-komando China tetapi tidaklah berlaku sebarang pertempuran dengan China.

21.Kapal-kapal selam China sendiri pernah berlabuh begitu dekat dengan stesyen Lima tetapi tidak ada ketengangan yang wujud, kehadiran mereka dianggap tidak membahayakan tetapi lngkah-langkah keselamatan tetap diambil.
