The Philippine Army’s Mechanized Infantry Division (MID) will have the capability to deal with intruding tanks with the pending arrival of the 14 M-133A2 armored personnel carriers (APCs) carrying 76mm turrets and anti-aircraft capability with the arrival of the four armored personnel carriers (APCs) fitted with the 25mm remote-control weapon system (RCWS).

This was disclosed by MID public affairs office chief Major Filemon Tan at the sidelights of the firepower and maneuver demonstrations of the six APCs fitted with the brand-new .50 caliber remote-control weapon system (RCWS) at Camp O’Donnell in Capas, Tarlac on Monday.

Fourteen of the 28 APCs from Israeli defense manufacturer Elbit Systems Ltd. will be configured as fire support vehicles, equipped with fire control systems, and armed with the 76mm guns which are sourced from the decommissioned Scorpion CVRTs of the Philippine Army.

“With the 76mm guns fitted to these APCs, we can now have the capability to deal with (intruding) tanks,” he said in Filipino. The APCs will also be armed with munitions capable of penetrating tank armor and neutralizing enemy troops in the field, Tan added.

Four will be armed with 25mm RCWS. Aside from having large rounds and explosive capabilities, the 25mm RCWS-equipped APCs also has the range to deal with helicopters and attack aircraft.

Four of 28 will be configured as armored recovery vehicles.

The 28-APC order deal with Elbit Systems Ltd., worth PhP 882 million, was signed on June 22, 2014.
