Philippine, Brunei leaders view S. Korea's FA-50 fighter jet

BUSAN, Dec. 12 (Yonhap) -- The leaders of the Philippines and Brunei on Friday took a look at a South Korean indigenous fighter jet specially displayed for them at an air base in this southeastern port city, the Air Force said.

President Benigno Aquino III of the Philippines and Brunei's leader Hassanal Bolkiah were briefed on the FA-50's capacity ahead of their departure from Busan on Friday, it said.

The visit was made at the request of the two leaders, military officers said. For the occasion, the light fighter plane flew from an air base in Wonju, some 132 kilometers southeast of Seoul, on Thursday.

The FA-50 is a light attack variant of the T-50 Golden Eagle supersonic trainer that was co-developed by Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) and U.S. defense firm Lockheed Martin. It is the most advanced variant of the T-50 family operated by the South Korean Air Force.

The two leaders are among 10 political leaders from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) who visited Busan to attend a two-day commemorative summit with South Korean President Park Geun-hye that was wrapped up earlier in the day.

In March, South Korea signed a US$420 million contract to export 12 FA-50 fighter jets to the Philippines under a government-to-government deal as part of their moves to expand defense cooperation.

The contract is widely expected to boost the KAI's overseas bid for T-50 family jets, following deals with Iraq in December and Indonesia in 2011.

For Brunei, its top envoy to Seoul showed an interest in the plane last month when he visited the headquarters of KAI in Sacheon, about 437 kilometers southeast of Seoul, on the occasion of a foreign ministry event for foreign ambassadors in Seoul, according to sources.

KAI is currently competing with rivals to win Peru's next generation light attack aircraft competition by offering its FA-50 supersonic jets.

South Korea to deliver 2 fighter jets next year
by Alexis Romero, The Philippine Star
Posted at 12/14/2014 11:37 AM

BUSAN – The Philippines expects delivery of two of the 12 lead-in fighter trainer jets it acquired from South Korea in December next year.

“The projected schedule is December of next year for the first two (jets),” President Aquino told reporters on the sidelines of the ASEAN-Republic of Korea commemorative summit last Friday.

“We are getting 12 of them. (Delivery) will be finished by 2017,” he added.

Aquino noted the Philippines last had fighter aircraft in 2005, the year the Air Force decommissioned its vanguard F-5 jet fighters after guarding the national airspace for 40 years.

The F-5 fighters that patrolled Philippine territories in the West Philippine Sea were retired after officials declared they were too old and too costly to maintain.

The decommissioning rendered the Philippines practically defenseless against external threats and depleted the capabilities of the Philippine Air Force (PAF), then considered as one of the strongest in the region.

The Philippines has no fighter aircraft in its hangar and is making do with decades-old air assets to secure its territories.

Aquino said the FA-50s would boost the Air Force’s ability to monitor the country’s territory and enable Filipino pilots to retain their skills.

He said it takes about four to eight hours before the country’s “very ancient planes” like the Nomad and Islander can reach their mission areas.

“For example, if you want to check on something, this is a jet, it gets there quick,” the President said.

“You are trained to plot using its radar, guide its air controllers. We may lose all these abilities. The purpose of these (jets) is to retain those abilities,” he added.

Last March, the Philippines and Korea Aerospace Industries signed a contract for the purchase of 12 lead-in fighter trainer jets worth P18.9 billion.

The project is the biggest item in the military’s upgrade program and seeks to improve the military’s territorial defense capabilities.

Philippines to get frigates, gunboats, helicopters as tension simmers


Manila: The Philippines aims to buy two frigates, two helicopters and three gunboats for deployment in the South China Sea where a territorial dispute with China has lent urgency to the need to bolster forces, a Philippine navy officer said on Wednesday.


China claims nearly the entire South China Sea, rejecting claims to parts of it by the Philippines, Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam and Taiwan.

The confrontation between the Philippines and China has been particularly tense since June 2012 when China seized a rocky outcrop known as the Scarborough Shoal which is believed to be rich in oil and natural gas as well as fisheries resources.

"The events in the West Philippine Sea actually gave some urgency on the acquisition," Rear Admiral Caesar Taccad, head of the Philippine Navy`s weapons system, told reporters.

The Philippines has embarked on a 15-year, 90 billion peso ($2 billion) modernization programme to improve its capability to defend its maritime borders.

The procurement list announced on Wednesday will be bought with 39 billon pesos from that budget.

The government aimed to sign contracts early next year for the new warships, Taccad said on board the navy`s most powerful warship, BRP Gregorio del Pilar, a former U.S. coastguard cutter.

China has been reclaiming land in various parts of the Spratlys islands and appear to be constructing airstrips and ports in five reefs to gain full control of them.

The Philippines, a close U.S. ally, has brought an international arbitration case against China, seeking clarification on its entitlements under the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea. China has refused to take part in the arbitration. A ruling is expected late next year.

Vietnam recently submitted its position to the arbitration tribunal, drawing an angry response from China.

South Korea, Spain and France had submitted tenders for two stealth, missile-guided frigates worth 18 billion pesos while Italy and Indonesia are bidding for two anti-submarine warfare helicopters, Taccad said.

Indonesia won contracts for two strategic sealift vessels and will deliver the first ship in early 2016. Taiwan and five other shipyards are competing for three missile-capable multi-purpose attack craft.

Coastal radars will be supplied by the United States.

Missile-Armed MPACs in the Pipeline for the PN


18 Desember 2014

MANILA (PNA) -- In a bid to improve its territorial sea interdiction capabilities, the Philippine Navy (PN) announced that it will be acquiring missile-armed MPACs (multi-purpose assault craft) to beef up its patrol force.

This was announced by PN vice commander Rear Admiral Caesar C. Taccad during Tuesday's briefing on modernization.

"It will be armed with stabilized weapon system with fire control complemented with a short to medium range missile system," he added.

The MPACs will be designed for territorial sea interdiction operations with maritime situational awareness and limited credible deterrence in the protection of the country's interest at the West Philippine Sea, Taccad stated

"And it may also be used for internal security operations and humanitarian assistance disaster response operations," he stressed.

The Department of National Defense (DND) earlier announced that it is allocating Php270 million to acquire three missile-armed MPACs.

The money will be sourced from the AFP Modernization Act Trust Fund of 2000.

The contract includes mission essential equipment.



Mission essential equipment includes day/night electronic navigation systems, communication suites, safety-of-life-at-sea, propulsion system and seamanship and ship-handling gears.

The PN currently operates a force of six MPACs.

Three of the PN's MPACs are sourced from Taiwan while the remaining three were ordered from Filipino shipbuilder Propmech Corporation, which is based in Subic Bay, Zambales.

These ships are 16.5 meters long, 4.76 meters wide and has a draft of one meter and a top speed of 45 knots.

Each one costs around Php90 million. It has a range 300 nautical miles. The hull is made of high-quality aluminum and is crewed by one officer and four enlisted personnel. It is capable of carrying 16 fully-equipped troopers or two tons of cargo.

The MPAC is capable of operating in territorial waters up to "Sea State 3" (slight waves) without any system degradation. It is armed with one .50 caliber and two 7.62mm machine guns.

Navy to Acquire 6 155mm Gun Tubes for Marine Units

22 Desember 2014



U.S. Marines and Philippine soldiers prepare to fire an M777 howitzer during Amphibious Landing Exercise 2013 (photo : USMC)

MANILA (PNA) --- The Philippine Navy (PN) is acquiring six 155-millimeter howitzers to improve the fire support and attack capability of its Marine units.

"The project will be an additional capability for the Marines especially in the conduct of fire support for its operating forces," Navy vice commander Rear Admiral Caesar Taccad said.

Aside from the gun tubes, sufficient stocks of 155mm ammunition will be also acquired, he added.

Six 155mm gun tubes are equivalent to one heavy artillery battery.

The weapon has a maximum range of 14,600 meters. The 155mm battery will supplement the existing 105mm guns of the Marines which only has an effective range of 11,270 meters.

"The artillery system (will be) equipped with fire control computers, muzzle velocity radars, inertial navigation and target acquisition systems. It (will) provide the most responsive and accurate fire support to maneuver infantry battalions with maximum lethal effect and larger target range. As of now, the project is for re-bidding," Taccad said.

PMC to Acquire SMAW Rocket Launcher

28 Desember 2014


PMC will use SMAW to destroy bunkers and lightly armored vehicles (photo : combatindex)


PN to set up maritime domain awareness centers; to acquire new weaponry

MANILA - The Philippine Navy (PN) announced on Friday that it will establish coast watch centers and related facilities in the northern part of the country.

The move is in line with the objective of boosting its maritime situational awareness capability.

Furthermore, in a related development, The Navy also announced that it is acquiring "shoulder-launched multi-purpose assault weapons" (SMAW) to give its Marine units the capability to neutralize bunkers and lightly armored vehicles.

Maritime domain awareness capability refers to the ability of a nation's armed forces to detect, monitor, and, if needed, drive away intruders from its territorial waters.

These were announced by PN vice commander Rear Admiral Caesar Taccad without divulging exact figures and locations for security reasons.

Taccad said the strategic goal of maritime situational awareness, "as stipulated in our Active Archipelagic Defense Strategy, is to ensure effective maritime information support in order to facilitate effective decision-making for credible deterrence and support to national and regional cooperation for maritime security and development and governance."

This project, he disclosed, is now undergoing pre-bidding, the PN vice commander added.

The SMAW, on the other hand, "is to fill the gaps in the direct fire support weapons capabilities of the Marines against different bunkers, concrete walls, light armor and other hard and 'soft' targets," PN vice commander Rear Admiral Caesar Taccad said.

It is defined as a "rocket weapon with a maximum range of 1,500 meters. It will be issued to special Marine units who accompany fellow Marines in possible encounters with heavily-armed or fortified adversaries.

The weapon can be used for internal security and territorial defense operations.

Taccad added that SMAW is now undergoing evaluation and study by the Defense Acquisition System ad hoc committee.

Philippines to buy two C-130 transport planes from US Navy

The Philippine military yesterday signed a pact with the US Navy to buy two secondhand C-130 transport planes to boost its capability to fan out quickly for territorial defence and humanitarian operations.
Washington has been helping develop the military capability of its former colony in the face of serious security challenges in the South China Sea, as China steps up its presence in disputed areas.
China claims almost all of the sea, believed to be rich in mineral and oil-and-gas deposits.
Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, Taiwan and the Philippines also have claims on the waters, traversed by about $5tn of ship-borne trade each year.
“The US is helping us pay for these two aircraft,” Colonel Restituto Padilla, a spokesman for the Armed Forces of the Philippines, said, adding that the US State Department would provide about $20mn in foreign military financing.
“We have requested some 1.6bn pesos to complete the purchase of the transport planes,” he added, referring to a sum equivalent to $35.61mn.
The transport planes, to be delivered early next year, will take to five the number of mission-ready C-130s, for a boost in the number and capacity of existing medium-lift aircraft.
In 2014, Washington allocated military assistance funds of $50mn to the Philippines. Besides the C-130s, the funds were used to install weapons on two frigates, also acquired from the US coast guard.
Padilla said the transport planes would be used to rapidly deploy troops in the fight against Maoist-led rebels and others and to carry relief to disaster-hit areas.

F/A-50 Fighting Eagle do not rely much on ground based surveillance system


Philippine Air Force told the state-run news agency that F/A-50 Fighting Eagle has a radar system that can go on autonomous air patrols without relying too much on ground based surveillance system. PAF Lt. Col. Enrico Canaya added that “it has its own onboard radar systems so it can detect (any hostile air threats) while on patrol.”



Department of National Defense earlier said one of the reasons it chose the South Korean made jet is the radar system. Its radar system was also designed to accomplish air-to-air and airstrike missions.

First two, out of twelve F/A-50s ordered, are expected to be delivered and commissioned before this year ends.

In December 2014, President Benigno S. Aquino III met Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) President and Chief Executive Officer Sung Yong-ha and other Republic of Korea (SoKor) Air Force officials and was able to inspect one FA-50 fighter jet.

Philippines and Slovakia sign defence co-operation accord


Jon Grevatt, Bangkok - IHS Jane's Defence Industry



The Philippines and Slovakia have signed an agreement to facilitate co-operation in defence trade and technologies.

The "joint plan of action" was signed in Manila on 23 February by the Philippines' foreign affairs secretary, Albert del Rosario, and his visiting counterpart, Miroslav Lajcak.

The accord calls for bilateral collaboration in areas including energy, trade, and defence, which is to be channelled through potential licensed production programmes while dependent upon Philippine purchases of Slovakian defence equipment.

Statements said the signing of the agreement will be followed by discussions to identify areas of possible defence trade and related technology transfers, enabling the Philippines to undertake licensed production and maintenance of materiel.

Air Force's first C295 aircraft arriving March



MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Air Force's cargo and transportation capability will soon have another boost with the arrival of its first C295 military transport aircraft this month.

"Our first C295 will be arriving this March," Defense Undersecretary for Finance Fernando Manalo said in a state news interview Tuesday.

The arrival of twin-turbopop tactical plane is five months earlier than expected, with the two other units to follow later this year.

Manalo, however, refused to specify the date of the units' arrival, citing security reasons.

Spanish manufacturer EADS/CASA-Airbus Military last year won the bidding for the Department of National Defense's aircraft program pegged at P5.3 billion.

Foreign militaries have also used the C295 as a maritime patrol or surveillance aircraft.
Headlines ( Article MRec ), pagematch: 1, sectionmatch: 1

Airbus has dubbed the C295 as a "tactical workhorse" and the "most capable and versatile transport and surveillance aircraft."

The C295 can carry up to nine tons of cargo or 71 personnel and moves at a maximum cruise speed of 480 kilometers per hour reaching up to 25,000 feet.

It has also been hailed as fuel-efficient and it costs less to operate and maintain.

Philippine Navy to receive two decommissioned LCH Landing Craft vessels from Australia



The Philippine Navy is to receive two decommissioned Balikpapan-class heavy landing craft (LCH) vessels from Australia, strengthening its capacity to combat natural disasters. The Royal Australian Navy will provide its former HMA Ships Brunei and Tarakan to the Philippines in order to deliver additional intra-theatre sealift capability.



The landing crafts will be handed over after being refurbished with new safety and navigation equipment. The Balikpapan class is an excellent capability for amphibious operations, as well as humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. In 2013, Philippine Navy faced difficulties in relief efforts during Typhoon Haiyan due to the lack of sealift ability. This will be addressed with the supply of the two vessels, the Australian navy said.

The LCHs will be capable of delivering personnel and equipment to areas that are considered to be unreachable disaster relief missions. The 44.5m LCHs cruise at a maximum speed of 10k to 13k, carrying 180t of cargo. The Philippine Government is also considering purchase of the remaining three Australian landing crafts, the former Wewak, Betano and Balikpapan. The Royal Australian Navy decommissioned these vessels in 2012. Earlier this year, Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PAL started construction of the first of two strategic sealift vessels (SSVs) for the Philippine Navy.

6 Upgraded AFVs to Arrive by June 18

13 Juni 2015


M-113 of the Philippine Army (photo : vjdefense)



Manila (PNA) - "The first six units of the upgraded AFVs are arriving by June 18," Lt. Col. Noel Detoyato, PA spokesperson, told the Philippines News Agency.

This lot will be followed by 18 other units and four more by July or August, he said.

Fourteen of the M-113s will be configured as fire support vehicles, four as infantry fighting vehicles, six as armored personnel carriers, and another four as armored recovery units.

The M-113s will be supplied by Israeli defense manufacturer Elbit Systems Ltd.

The contract, which is worth PhP882 million, was signed on June 22, 2014.

Upgrades include installation of 25mm unmanned turrets, 12.7mm remote controlled weapon stations (RCWS) and fire control systems (FCS) for 90mm turrets.

The PA operates around 343 AFVs (armored fighting vehicles) and APCs (armored personnel carriers).

Around 85 percent of these AFVs are on green status (fully mission capable), another 10 percent on yellow status (undergoing repair) and five percent on red (beyond repair)

About 150 of these are the United Kingdom-built GKN "Simba," with the remaining AFVs consisting of United States-designed V-150 and V-200 APCs, M-113s, Turkish made ACV-300s and British Scorpion CVRTs.

These vehicles give the PA its armor capability and are organized into a 14-vehicle mechanized infantry companion for deployment with regular units.

Philippines Armed Forces need to acquire a new Shore-Based Missile System.

The Defense Department of Philippines is lobbying to realign the P6.5 billion Shore-Based Missile System to counter China’s threat in the South China Sea, according to documents obtained by The Standard. The mobile SBMS is part of the Army’s “big-ticket items” and included in the 1st Horizon Project List in the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program, which was approved by Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin but yet to be approved by President Benigno Aquino III.


Defense insiders say the project did not pass through the Defense Capability Assessment and Planning Systems and the Defense System of Management. If not justified, they warn, the proponents of the realignment may face legal charges and jail terms.

They say the project is a government-to-government deal with the Israel Military Industries Ltd. in December 2014. They say the realignment of the SBMS negates the President’s promise for the AFP to have a “minimum credible defense” posture before he steps down from office in 2016.

The supplier was just waiting for the awarding of the contract when suddenly Irriberi requested a realignment.

On March 5, 2015, Gazmin, in a letter to Aquino, sought the approval of 28 RAFPMP projects with a total budget of P60,143,404,181, which includes the SBMS. This was after the President, on February 17, ordered the DND to review all the projects and to make sure these, particularly the SBMS, will not violate the Convention on Cluster Munitions.

Irriberi wrote an undated letter in May to AFP chief of staff Gen. Gregorio Pio Catapang Jr. seeking his approval to re-align the SBMS.

“The Philippine Army presented the need to adjust the 2015 acquisition of Shore-Based Missile System…This is due to the rapid change in the internal security landscape brought about by the issues on the Bangsamoro Basic Law and the prevalent use of IED (improvised explosive device) of the threat groups that inflicted significant casualties on our troops,” Irriberi said.

“The emerging security situation is further driven by the continuous military operations against the BIFF (Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters) and ASG (Abu Sayyaf Group).”

The BBL, although it is still to be passed by Congress, has already started the decommissioning on both fighters and arms of the much bigger rebel organization, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

Irriberi said the Army, as end-user, saw the importance of the SBMS for the country’s territorial defense in the West Philippine Sea but the soldiers involved in internal security operations need more individual protective gear “in view of the of clear, present and continuing occurrences of terrorist acts perpetrated by enemies of the state.”

Face aux prétentions chinoises, les Philippines dopent leurs crédits militaires

     
Manille, 21 juil 2015 (AFP) -


Les Philippines, aux prises avec les prétentions chinoises sur des îles en mer de Chine méridionale, vont accroître leurs crédits militaires de 25% en 2016, ont annoncé mardi des responsables du gouvernement.

Le budget prévisionnel qui sera soumis la semaine prochaine au Parlement par le président Benigno Aquino réserve à la défense nationale une enveloppe record de 25 milliards de pesos (509 millions d'euros) contre 20 milliards de pesos l'an dernier.

Ces crédits - infimes quand on les rapporte aux 886,9 milliards de yuans (132 milliards d'euros) budgétés par Pékin pour l'année en cours - iront en priorité à l'acquisition de frégates et d'avions de surveillance.

"Nous devons pouvoir protéger tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur de notre juridiction territoriale", a justifié le secrétaire au Budget, Florencio Abad. "Il nous faut au minimum être capables de surveiller efficacement ce qui se passe dans la région, surtout dans les zones disputées".

Parmi les moins bien dotées d'Asie du Sud-est, l'armée philippine possède une modeste flotte de navires et d'avions cinquantenaires mais elle peut compter sur son allié américain tenu depuis 1951 par un traité de défense mutuelle.

"Nous faisons un réel effort de modernisation et nous avons besoin de tous les moyens possibles, y compris de frégates et d'avions de surveillance", a souligné un porte-parole du ministère de la Défense, Arsenio Andolong.

La mer de Chine méridionale est un carrefour de routes maritimes vitales pour le commerce mondial, et recèle potentiellement des réserves d'hydrocarbures.

Le Vietnam, la Malaisie, les Philippines et le sultanat de Brunei revendiquent la souveraineté de certaines parties stratégiques de cette mer, mais Pékin les revendique presque toutes et n'hésite pas à montrer ses muscles, suscitant des préoccupations dans la région et au delà.

La Chine, qui fonde sa revendication sur des cartes remontant aux années 1940, a récemment donné du poids à ses prétentions en construisant des îles artificielles sur des récifs disputés.

THE PHILIPPINE NAVY COMMISSIONED INTO SERVICE ITS TWO ARMED AGUSTAWESTLAND AW-109E

The Philippine Navy (PN) formally commissioned into service its two armed AgustaWestland AW-109E “Power” helicopters in simple ceremonies at Naval Station Jose Andrada, on Roxas Boulevard, Manila Monday.

The helicopters are armed with .50 caliber machinegun pods and 2.75 inch rocket launchers.

Cmdr. Lued Lincuna, PN public affairs office chief, said that armed AW-109Es are also equipped with maritime air surveillance capability, amphibious air support operations and weather search radar and forward looking infrared systems that enhances the Navy’s maritime air surveillance and close air support for ground troops.

The 8 a.m. commissioning ceremonies were spearheaded by outgoing PN flag-officer-in-command Vice Admiral Jesus C. Millan.

The last two AW-109E airframes arrived in the Philippines last December.

This is part of the five-helicopter deal, worth Php1.33-billion, signed by the Philippines with AgustaWestland early 2013.

Three of the AW-109s were delivered and commissioned in Dec. 22, 2013.

PT PAL outlines weapons fit for Philippine Navy SSVs

Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
13 August 2015

ndonesian state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL has confirmed that the two strategic sealift vessels (SSVs) on order for the Philippine Navy (PN) will each be fitted with one 76 mm gun on the foredeck as the main armament. Two stern-facing 25 mm guns will also be fitted, one each on the port and starboard sides.

Speaking to IHS Jane's on 14 August, PT PAL's SSV project manager Turitan Indaryo also gave an update on build progress for both ships. "The first vessel is 68.39% complete, while the second vessel is 42.37% complete," he said, adding that the ships are on schedule for delivery in May 2016 and May 2017 respectively.

However, PT PAL was not able to confirm the potential suppliers of the ships' weapons. "We are just preparing the foundations. The Philippine Navy will decide," said Turitan.

PT PAL was awarded a USD92 million contract in June 2014 to construct two landing platform dock (LPD)-like vessels to meet the PN's amphibious transport and logistics requirements. The contract includes a support package that will enable Philippine industry to undertake ship maintenance and support in collaboration with the PN.

The 123 m platforms are based on the Indonesian Navy's (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL's) Makassar-class LPDs, which were designed by South Korean shipbuilder Dae Sun.

According to IHS Jane's Fighting Ships , the PN's SSVs have a full load displacement of 11,583 tonnes. The vessels will have lift capacity for 500 troops, can embark three large helicopters, and can accommodate 126 crew. The ships have a top speed of 15 kt, a maximum range of 9,360 n miles, and an endurance of 30 days.

Philippines takes delivery of final Bell 412EP utility helicopters

Bell Helicopter yesterday announced the final delivery and acceptance of eight Bell 412EP helicopters to the Philippine Department of National Defense (DND). The final delivery was acknowledged earlier today during the flag raising ceremony at the Villamor Air Base.




“We are proud to deliver the final of eight Bell 412EP aircraft today - three months ahead of schedule and, as promised, in time for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in November," said Sameer A. Rehman, managing director of Bell Helicopter, Asia Pacific. “Bell Helicopter has played an important role in the Philippines' national defense for six decades, and it is a profound privilege to continue this relationship and serve the DND for decades to come.”

The eight Bell 412EP helicopters, fully configured and equipped with advanced features, were purchased with the government-to-government contracting support of the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC), and fully meet the DND’s modernization requirements. Bell Helicopter began staged deliveries in June of the eight aircraft to be used for combat utility and VIP transport operations, as well as relief efforts.

“We are pleased to receive the last of these remarkable aircraft and continue our long-standing relationship with the Bell Helicopter team,” said Undersecretary Fernando I. Manalo from the Philippine Department of National Defense. “We look forward to employing the versatility and improved performance of the Bell 412EP.”

“It is a great occasion to be here today and observe the delivery of the final Bell 412EP aircraft. These world-class aircraft represent a leap in capabilities for the DND,” stated James Mott, contracts manager for the CCC. “Today we also honor the strong defense collaboration between Canada and the Philippines, and the longstanding cooperation between the CCC and Bell Helicopter to provide cost-effective government-to-government contracting solutions for advanced aerospace products."

The ceremony was also attended by Neil Reeder, Canadian Ambassador to the Philippines, and Philip Goldberg, U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines.

The Bell H-13 Sioux, a variant of the iconic Bell 47, was the first helicopter to enter into service with the PAF in 1955. The PAF has operated derivations of the Bell UH-1H since the late 1960s, and since 1994 when they received their first two Bell 412s.

The Bell 412 and its variants offer the most rugged medium twin-engine helicopter available, with the best readiness rate of any helicopter in its class. The Bell 412EP easily fulfills many mission critical helicopter operations worldwide, offering reliable performance in some of the most extreme climates. Its dual digital automatic flight control system with available IFR option and Category A/JAR OPS 3 capability provides greater control and improved situational awareness. With a cruise speed of 122 knots (226 kph), range of 357 nautical miles (662 km) and an expansive cabin easily accommodating 13 passengers and two crew members, the Bell 412EP is capable of fitting multiple mission criteria.

Philippines can’t afford full military modernization: officials


he Philippines can only afford a “frugal” military upgrade, defence officials said Monday, even though maritime tensions with China are growing.

Despite a proposed 25 percent rise in next year’s defence budget, the government must still divide resources between external defence and internal threats like insurgencies and natural disasters, Defence Secretary Voltaire Gazmin and other security officials added.

Since President Benigno Aquino took office in mid-2010, the Philippines has acquired two former US coast guard cutters, three landing craft from Australia and South Korea and seven surplus UH-1H helicopters.

“The goal of updating and modernising our armed forces is a long and painstaking process,” Gazmin told a ceremony for the commissioning of 10 more newly-acquired air force helicopters.

“That means we have to be frugal and acquire reliable platforms at very reasonable costs… as allowed by our meagre financial resources.”

The modest upgrade has been prompted partly by China’s moves to stake its claim to most of the South China Sea.

These include building new islands in the Spratly archipelago and taking effective control of Scarborough Shoal after a standoff with the Philippine Navy.

Philippine Air Force chief Lieutenant-General Jeffrey Delgado said the 10 new helicopters will be used to address internal security problems.

The military expects more aircraft deliveries this year including possibly the first two of 12 FA-50 fighter jets earlier ordered from a South Korean supplier, Delgado told reporters.

Delgado said the FA-50S were mere “transition aircraft” toward more advanced more advanced fighters jets which the Philippines cannot now afford.

Defence department spokesman Peter Paul Galvez said communist and Muslim insurgencies remained a priority despite the new watchfulness on Philippine borders.

“We are first focusing on internal security and in the succeeding horizons, we will go towards external defence,” he said, criticising China’s reclamation work.

“They should stop their island-building. That steps up the pace of militarisation,” Galvez said.

The Philippines has been among the most vocal in challenging China’s sea claims, which also overlap those of Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam.

US ambassador Philip Goldberg said the United States, the Philippines’ closest defence ally, was ready to provide surplus military equipment and budgeted $50 million in foreign military aid to the Philippines last year.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines has accepted 40k M4 Remington Rifles after US firm mistake
The military has accepted over 40,000 M4 Remington rifles for its troops after the United States-based manufacturer replaced the defective parts of more than 20,000 rifles. The Armed Forces of the Philippines said the 44,186 rifles – which were delivered in two batches – have been accepted as of August 30 by the Defense Acquisition Office.



The AFP public affairs office chief, Col. Noel Detoyato, said the first batch of 24,300 rifles were already accepted and would soon be issued to the troops of the Philippine Army.
The second batch of 19,886 rifles will be subjected to ballistic tests before these are issued, according to Detoyato.

“All the rifles are corrected already and have been accepted. The date of acceptance was July 30 but the documents signifying the acceptance were received by the DAO on August 13,” Detoyato said.

This means that the Remington Firearms Company had already corrected the defective rifles, which had unstable rear gunsights, prompting the military to return the rifles to the manufacturer.

The military earlier returned some 22,000 firearms to the supplier so that the defective parts could be replaced at no cost to the government.

Of the 27,000 M4 rifles initially meant for the Philippine Army, only 5,000 were without defects and equipped with optical gunsight and have been already distributed to the Philippine Marines.

At first, the Technical Inspection and Acceptance Committee withheld the acceptance of the 22,000 rifles as the rules provided that defects must first be corrected before the units could be accepted.

“This was not about the procedure in the procurement, but it was the lapse of the supplier. They had to correct this before the TIAC could give the go-signal to accept,” the military official said.

Detoyato said the defects were discovered four months ago when the TIAC conducted a random sampling test of the delivered rifles and noticed that the rear sight of the rifles were unstable.

“It’s a defect by the supplier so the supplier had to shoulder and correct the discrepancy before (the guns) could be accepted,” the military official said.

Some rifles distributed to the 7th Infantry Division were also recalled since these were only “ceremonially distributed.”

The latest batch was the part of the delivery of around 60,000 rifles meant to replace the old M16 rifles. The 60,000 rifles cost the government around P2 billion.

The combat proven fast-attach mounting system of the new M4-1000 silencer provides reliable precision accuracy with minimal & repeatable zero-shift. Users have the ability to install or remove the silencer from the Blackout™ flash hider within seconds while being subjected to the harshest environments.

Extraordinary sound & recoil reduction are two of the instant benefits of the M4-1000. Durability is maximized by CNC automated fusion welding of the components used in its construction- giving the M4-1000 longevity & making it an excellent value. The back-pressure lowering design of the silencer aids in shooter comfort, reduces weapon fouling, & minimizes cyclic rate increase.

The outstanding reduction of the muzzle report nullifies the need for ear protection, preserves field communications, & masks the location of the user.

The affordable M4-1000 is lighter & more durable than competing designs, while maintaining all of the features that have made the M4-2000 so popular.
