The original ship design had been ordered by the Iraqi Navy but the supply of the missile corvettes was stopped by United Nations sanctions. Some specific aspects of the ships' design were modified and the ships were refitted to meet the requirements of the Royal Malaysian Navy.

The 705 ton missile corvette's has a steel hull, with overall length 62.3 metres, a breadth of 9.3 metres and has a complement of 56 crew. They have four MTU 20 V 956 TB 92 diesel engines developing 14.8 MW sustained power driving four shafts. The engines provide a dash speed of 36 knots, a maximum sustained speed of 34 knots and an economical speed of 18 knots. The range at 18 knots is 2,300 nautical miles.
