The modern history of MAF begins with the recruitment of 25 young Malays for the Malay Regiment squad trial on March 1, 1933. This regiment continued to develop into a full battalion known as First Battalion Malay Regiment on January 1, 1938. Second Battalion was established on December 1, 1941, six days before the start of the Second World War in Malaya. The two battalions had demonstrated their abilities in the war against the Japanese. After the war, the country was hit by the Communists and the state of Emergency was declared in 1948 and required the expansion of the armed forces. By 1950 the strength of the Malay Regiment had been increased to seven battalions. In times of emergency as well, the armed forces had seen the establishment of a multiracial team of the Federation Regiment and Federation Armoured Car Squadron in 1952. After the country gained independence in 1957, the Army has developed and equipped to carry out counter -insurgency operations. At this time the army was rapidly modernized as a conventional force that is able to meet the challenges of the future.
