1500 ground troops, armour and heavy weapon were deployed for the assault.

Malaysia's MISC Berhad, in collaboration with the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) and the National Security Council (NSC), has successfully modified its containership Bunga Mas Lima into a RMN Infantry Assault Vessel for the purpose of destroying the Somali Pirate in the Gulf of Aden.

The project was undertaken following last year's hijacking of MISC's ships Bunga Melati Dua and Bunga Melati 5. Since the incident, RMN launched OP FAJAR, a assault mission, with the aim of total anihilation of Somali pirate and has since sent five ships, namely, KD LEKIU, KD SRI INDERAPURA, KD MAHAWANGSA, KD SRI INDERA SAKTI and KD HANG TUAH in support of that mission.

The Bunga Mas Lima, a 699 TEU containership, is the first Malaysian merchant ship to be modified as an Infantry Assault Vessel for TLDM. The modification work was carried out by Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering Sdn Bhd (MMHE), the heavy engineering arm of MISC, at MMHE's yard in Pasir Gudang, Johor.
