Two other platforms that will help strengthen Philippine Navy’s (PN) capabilities to defend the country’s vast maritime domain are expected to be issued in 2018.
Defense spokesperson Arsenio Andolong has issued an update on other deliverable items for PN this year.
First of all, the Spike ER (extended range) missile system of Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd will be imposed on three of the Navy’s brand-new multi-purpose assault craft (MPAC) which was activated on May 22.
The weapons are in anti-ship mode which means that it can make target ships on the surface and capable of entering 1,000 mm (39 inches) of the integrated uniform armor and has a maximum of five miles.
And while not providing exact dates for delivering missiles and platforms for security purposes, Andolong said that weapons will be given to the country “early in the first quarter of the year.”
Second deliverables for PN are two new AgustaWestland AW-159 “Wildcat” anti-submarine helicopters expected to arrive in the last quarter of 2018 and early 2019, Andolong added.
He has not yet explained what weapons and surveillance systems the AW-159s are carrying for security reasons.
The above mentioned helicopters will be based on two frigates in order from Hyundai Heavy Industries.
AW-159 (formerly known as Future Lynx and Lynx Wildcat) is an improved version of the Westland Super Lynx military helicopter.
There is a crew of two, with a maximum speed of 291 km / h (181 mph), with a range of 777 km (483 miles), a 963 km (598 mile) ferry range and a one and a half hour promotion (four hour and 30 minutes if equipped with auxiliary fuel tank).
