PN Accepts 2 Japanese TC-90 Aircraft

PN formally accepts 2 Japanese TC-90s in Sangley Point ceremony

SANGLEY POINT CAVITE (PNA) -- The Philippine Navy (PN)'s humanitarian and patrol capability got a big boost the Japan Ministry of Defense (JMOD) formally transferred two units of the Beechcraft TC-90 training aircraft Monday morning.

Transfer ceremonies took place at the Naval Air Group headquarters, Naval Base Heracleo Alano, Sangley Point, Cavite City.

The two aircraft landed at the said facility around 10 a.m.

Present during the transfer ceremony was Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and his JSMOD counterpart Kenji Wakamiya.

PN spokesperson Capt. Lued Lincuna said these aircraft were leased from the JMOD as part of the Navy's efforts to enhance its capability in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, limited transport, and maritime domain awareness including maritime air surveillance and intelligence surveillance reconnaissance.

The whole project involves five units of TC-90s. The remaining three units are expected to arrive by mid-2018.

Last November, two PN pilots and six air crews left for Japan to start their TC-90 flight training.

The Department of National Defense (DND) earlier announced that the Philippines will be re-equipping the TC-90s as Japan have stripped of some its equipment, including its surveillance systems.

The country will pay Japan USD7,000 each for the first four aircraft yearly and only USD200 for the fifth, or total of USD28,200 as stipulated in its lease agreement.

The DND added it is also looking at the possibility of using the TC-90 for 20 years while the military is upgrading its equipment.

The TC-90, which is part of the Beechcraft King Air aircraft family, was offered by Japan shortly after the Agreement Concerning the Transfer of Defense Equipment and Technology was finalized last Feb. 29, 2016.

The TC-90's patrol range is double those of small Philippine aircraft which only has a maximum range of 300 kilometers. (PNA)

Japanese TC-90s likely to be donated to PN soon

SANGLEY POINT, Cavite (PNA) -- There is a strong possibility that all five Japanese Beech King Air TC-90s will be donated to the Philippine Navy (PN) at a later day.

This was stressed by PN spokesperson Capt. Lued Lincuna during the sidelights of the turn over ceremonies of the two TC-90 aircraft in Sangley Point, Cavite Monday.

"The whole project, which involves five units of TC-90s, is pursuant to the agreement between the Philippines and Japan signed in Manila on Feb. 29, 2016. The remaining three units are expected to arrive by the end of March 2018. The PN will temporarily lease the said aircraft amounting to USD 28,000 per year while awaiting for the legal framework that would allow Japan to donate defense equipment to foreign countries," he added.

The TC-90s were leased by the Philippines from the Japan Minister of Defense as part of the efforts to boost the PN's capability in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, limited transport, and maritime domain awareness including maritime air surveillance and intelligence surveillance reconnaissance.

In line with this, two Naval Air Group instructor pilots are currently undergoing TC-90 transition for pilot in command, test pilot and instructor pilot training in Tokushima, Japan, while six more PN personnel composing the aircraft maintenance crew are also undergoing maintenance training in Sendai and Tokushima.

Gabriel Dominguez, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

service with the PAF. (PAF)


The aircraft will add to the existing six FA-50PHs that are currently in the PAF's inventory, with delivery of the four remaining aircraft expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

The two newly acquired FA-50PHs arrived at Clark Air Base in north of Manila on 29 March and were formally accepted in a ceremony presided by PAF Chief of Air Staff Major General Rozzano D Briguez on 6 April.

Maj Gen Briguez thanked the South Korean government for its support in the procurement.

"Bringing back the prestige of the PAF has been a challenge to the organisation,' said the major general, according to the statement.

Nevertheless, he added, "with the arrival of these jets, the PAF will continue to grow and progress with high hopes of providing peace and security in the entire nation".

MANILA -- The Philippine Air Force (PAF)'s fleet of FA-50PH "Fighting Eagle" jet fighters has climbed to 10 with the arrival of two more aircaft at Clark Air Base, Angeles City, Pampanga Wednesday morning.

This was confirmed by PAF spokesperson Col. Antonio Francisco in a message to the PNA.

"FA-50 with tail number 009 touched down at 11:20 a.m. while FA-50 with tail number 010 (landed) at 11:21 a.m.," he said.

Francisco said the two aircraft took off from Saechon, South Korea on 7:59 a.m. of April 25 and landed on Jeju on 8:50 a.m. on the same day.

After refueling in Jeju, it took off around 12:39 p.m. and landed in Taiwan around 2:47 p.m. also on April 25.

Francisco said the FA-50PHs departed deparated from Taiwan around 10:08 a.m. April 26 with FA-50PH with tail number 009 landing at 11:20 a.m. and tail number 010 arriving at 11:21 a.m.

FA-50PHs with tail numbers 007 and 008 arrived in the country last March 29 and were commissioned into service last April 6.

Francisco said the FA-50PHs are very useful for the PAF as it can be used for territorial defense and pilot training which is important as they are now focusing on the "generation" of pilots capable of manning sophisticated jet fighters which the country is planning to acquire for its military modernization program.

The first two FA-50PH units were delivered last Nov. 28, 2015 while the second batch was handed over last Dec. 8.

The third batch was turned over to the PAF last Feb. 22.

With the arrival of the two jet aircraft, only two more FA-50PHs are scheduled to be delivered by May, completing the PAF's 12-plane order from Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) worth PHP18.9 billion.

The FA-50PHs has a top speed of Mach 1.5 or one and a half times the speed of sound and is capable of being fitted air-to-air missiles, including the AIM-9 "Sidewinder" air-to-air and heat-seeking missiles aside from light automatic cannons.

DND to Acquire Precision-Guided Munitions for FA-50PHs in Russia

30 Mei 2017

MANILA --- The Department of National Defense (DND) is looking at the possibility of acquiring precision-guided munitions (PGMs) from Russia to further develop the FA-50PHs' ground-attack capability which can be used against a variety of threat groups.

DND Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said PGMs are quite useful as they can be delivered with "pinpoint accuracy" against ground targets by the South Korean-made FA-50PHs "Fighting Eagle" jet aircraft.

"(PGMs) are more expensive than conventional ammo but are economical in the long run as we will use less ammo (target is hit within five meter radius) and collateral damage is minimized if not completely eliminated," Lorenzana told the PNA Monday.

The DND chief did not give specifics on what types of PGMs it is planning to evaluate for possible Philippine acquisition and use.



The Philippine Air Force, by May 31, will complete its 12 FA-50PH order from Korea Aerospace Industries worth PHP18.9 billion.

Lorenzana earlier said the Philippines is planning to acquire weapons, including advanced diesel-electric submarines from Russia.

"Yes, we have plans to purchase weapons from them. They have also very sophisticated and advanced weaponry. We will look into them, we have not decided what equipment but off the bat, we are looking, we would like to develop our submarine force so we will look into their submarines one of these days," he added.

>Lorenzana was with President Rodrigo Duterte on his official trip to Russia last week. The trip was cut short because of the ongoing clash between security forces and the Maute terror Group in Marawi City, Lanao Del Sur last week.

Last batch of Korean fighter jets arrives in PH

Two more FA-50 fighter jets from South Korea arrived on Wednesday morning at the Philippine Air Force Harribon Hangar in Clark Airbase, Pampanga.

The latest batch completes the PAF acquisition of 12 FA-50 fighter jets.

The jets with tail numbers 011 and 012 are capable of carrying short range air to air missiles, air to surface missiles with 2-seat capacity and a length of 43 feet.

The PAF said that the fighter jets are on standby in case these are needed for operations in Marawi, where terrorist group Maute besieged key areas.

PHL military gets 3 brand-new 155-mm howitzers, 9 more en route

MANILA -- Three of the 12 155-mm towed howitzers acquired by the Department of National Defense for the Army and Marines, have arrived and the other nine are in transit, the department’s public affairs office chief, Arsenio Andolong, has said.

The three Elbit-Soltam M-71 155mm/Towed 39CAL howitzers were delivered late April and were formally accepted by the Philippine Marine Corps (PMC), whose gunners are currently familiarizing themselves with the weaponry, Andolong said in an interview with the Philippine News Agency (PNA) Wednesday.



The nine howitzers will undergo technical inspection once they arrive, he said, adding that three of these will be given to the PMC and six to the Army Artillery Regiment.

The new howitzers were supplied by the Israeli defense company, Elbit Systems Land and C41.

The contract was originally for PHP438.62 million and includes 240 155-mm. high explosive shells and integrated logistic support. Elbit won by submitting a bid of PHP410.84 million.
