MANILA (PNA) -- To improve its landing assault capabilities, the Philippine Navy is acquiring eight units of amphibious assault vehicles for the Philippine Marine Corps (PMC), according to PN vice commander Rear Admiral Caesar Taccad.

"The vehicles will be utilized to land the surface assault elements of the landing force and their equipment in a single lift from the assault shipping during amphibious operations to inland objectives and to conduct mechanized operations and related combat support missions in subsequent operations ashore," he said.

The amphibious assault vehicles can also provide direct fire support, screen and mechanized operations for international security operations.

"Similarly for humanitarian assistance disaster relief operations for devastated areas, having the capability of beaching during ship-to-shore movement of troops and cargoes," Taccad said.

He added that the project is now waiting for the Department of National Defense (DND) to issue a notice of award.

The DND has allocated PhP2.5 billion for the project.

The money will be sourced from the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program.

This includes integrated logistic support, DND Bidding and Awards Committee vice chair Efren Fernandez earlier said.

Interested bidders must have completed a similar project within the last 10 years.

Winning bidders, meanwhile, must be capable of delivering the vehicles within 910 calendar days of the opening of the letter of credit.
