2nd-gen NGPV design proposed for Malaysia. Compare to the original Kedah-class/MEKO 100 in service with the Royal Malaysian Navy:

DSA 2018: BHIC SHOWS TWO NEW CONCEPTUAL SHIP DESIGNS

Six KEDAH-class NGPVs based on the MEKO 100 design were built by Boustead and entered service with the RMN starting in 2006, the RMN’s 15 to 5 plan calls for another 12 ships of this class though it has long been assumed that these additional 12 ships would be more heavily armed with anti-surface and anti-air missiles which were fitted out for installation on the KEDAH-class but never installed in the end owing to budget considerations.

... Opting for a lesser armed ship puts the second batch NGPV coming in at a projected price of less than RM500 million (U$128 million) a ship. The second batch NGPV will continue to use the MEKO 100 hull which BHIC has an IP license for but the ship’s superstructure will be modified to provide a lower radar cross section profile.
