Established in June of 1965, the Royal Brunei Navy today fields a modest waterborne force of which a large portion of the fleet is made up of patrol boats of various shapes and sizes. The most impressive of the lot is the Darussalam-class which were built in Germany by Lurssen Werft of Bremen-Vegesack. Four were procured in all with one of the group - KDB Darulaman (OPV-08) - being commissioned in 2011. The vessels are used in the offshore patrol role.

The class is represented through a design showcasing a length of 260 feet with a beam of 43 feet. Displacement is 1,625 tons. They feature a 57mm Bofors turreted autocannon at the bow supported by 2 x 20mm Oerlikon guns while carrying 4 x Exocet MM40 Block 3 anti-ship missiles. Beyond their armament fit, the vessels sport a Thales "Sting" EO Mk 2 fire-control radar, a Terma Scanter 4100 series air-surface search radar and the Zeiss MEOS II series electro-optical system. The standard operating crew numbers 55 personnel and a stern-located helipad accepts a single naval helicopter.
