US Donated ISR Aircraft to Help Patrol Vast PH Waters

MANILA - The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) will use the two US donated Cessna 208B "Caravan" aircraft, which are fitted with intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), to patrol the country's vast maritime domains and borders, AFP spokesperson Brig. Gen. Restito Padilla said on Wednesday.

In an interview, Padilla said the ISR aircraft could also conduct photo-recon missions along the country's coastal zones.

Padilla said the two planes, which will be formally turned over by the US government to the Philippines Thursday, were part of America's Maritime Security Initiative.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana is expected to be in the hand-over ceremony in Villamor Air Base, Pasay City along with US Ambassador Sung Kim.

The Cessna 208B will also give the AFP the capability to detect ships and other craft intruding into the country's territorial waters quickly.

It can also be used to track down or locate lawless elements attempting to infiltrate in the Philippines' southern maritime borders.

The Cessna 208B has a cruising speed of around 170 knots and has a range of over 1,000 nautical miles and capable of transporting eight to nine persons, including the pilot.

Minus the ISR equipment and avionics, each of the aircraft is worth about USD2 milllion.

  4. It's okay to accept donated equipment if you do not have the means to buy. Better to know your lacking monetarily, than pretend you're rich just to impress your neighbors...like some countries.

    1. Read his statement, "Your Country couldn't be as powerful as my country when it comes to military procurement" that proves he is not Pinoy because when it comes to military equipment procurement, we Filipinos are always dead last, less than $1 billion dollar per year.

      Hapus
    2. Anak. Lem1 said, "Well give and donate 10 cargo ships full of rice if you want". For the last 30 years , Philippines has been importing rice because we cannot produce enough for our needs, this means Lem1 came from a rice exporting country and that cannot be Philippines.

    4. Which Southeast Asian country has an aircraft carrier? That is the best clue for Lem1's nationality, because he mentioned it, "Your country should buy aircraft carrier first and let your boastfulness shine..ok"

      Hapus
  30. Anak. Obviously Lem 1 cannot reveal the country he's from because that is his cover. But i am now 100% sure he is not a Pinoy, my best guess is he is a Thai. As a Filipino myself, I can recognize Pinoy's construction of English, even by the unlearned.
