The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) joined in the viral #TetrisChallenge - and took it to new heights with their F18 fighter jet and sidewinder missiles in play

According to Malay Mail, the RMAF tweeted the picture as an invitation to the public to the Malaysian Armed Forces Open Day Carnival at their naval ship base in Lumut, Perak on 28 and 29 September.

The post has since been retweeted over 2,500 times.

Twitter users were really impressed by the uniformed men and showed their full support

A Twitter user commended the equipment and the adorable crew.

Another user showed his national pride and said, "Let's all go to Lumut and see what the Malaysian Armed Forces can offer up close."

This user really loves the armed forces.

The 'Tetris Challenge' began early last month after police officers in Switzerland organised all their equipment and bodies in a photo

It was captioned, "If you ever wanted to know what was in a traffic police car".

According to New York Post, the trend gained attention as military members and first responders from around the world posted aerial shots of themselves lying down on the ground with their equipment, weapons, and vehicles.

Since then, different departments in countries from Switzerland to Singapore have worked to create elaborate flatlay pictures

These firefighters from Geneva, Switzerland had to join in the fun:

Police officers in Taichung, Taiwan also showed off their equipment:

The Dutch army had a tank:

Singapore's Civil Defence Force said they "couldn't resist" joining:

And the Zagreb Fire Department in Croatia got really organised:

There is something so oddly satisfying about organising colourful objects into neat grids like in Tetris
