RMN chief Admiral Datuk Seri Ahmad Kamarulzaman Ahmad Badaruddin said the five classes of ships were the Littoral Combat Ships (LCS); New Generation Patrol Vessels (NGPV); Littoral Mission Ships (LMS); Multi-Support Ships (MRSS) and submarines.

He said at present, RMN had 15 classes of ships which were built in seven different countries — United Kingdom; Germany; Italy; France; Sweden; South Korea and Malaysia.

Because of fiscal challenges and the geopolitics situation in the South East Asia region, Admiral Kamarulzaman is rolling out a new transformation and modernization plan called "15 to 5". There are currently 15 classes of ships in the RMN, coming from 7 nations with an average age of 30 years. This represents a large costs in terms of maintenance and operations. As a solution the "15 to 5" plan calls for:
1 - Phasing out of the older vessels in the fleet. This would lead to optimized resources.
2 - Improving procurement processes (reduced and optimized procurement requirements, reduced ill practices) would lead to additional savings for the RMN.
3 - Use these savings to fund the "15 to 5" plan, while focusing on local shipyards and defence industry.

3 - Use these savings to fund the "15 to 5" plan, while focusing on local shipyards and defence industry.

The five classes that would form the Royal Malaysian Navy would be:
» New Generation Patrol Vessel (Kedah-class)
» Littoral Combat Ship (Gowind-class)
» Littoral Mission Ship (able to do 80% of the LCS class missions at 20% of the cost)
» Multirole Supply Ship
» Submarines (Scorpene-class)

The RMN fleet would remain at 55 vessels meaning some additional procurement even among existing classes (such as the Scorpene-class submarines, two of which are already deployed by Malaysia).
