United States envoy to the Philippines Ambassador Sung Kim said the US government will be providing 2 aircraft the the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) activities.

Ambassador Kim told Karen Davila in ANC’s Headstart July 18 edition that delivery will be “soon, in a couple of weeks.”

He said these aircraft are Cessna 208 which are fitted with “very useful ISR equipment”.

The US envoy noted that “everything we do is in essence under the Mutual Defense Treaty, this (US-PH alliance) is a strong alliance, we are partners, allies, and friends – and we help our friends and partners in time of need.”

“The Marawi situation is clearly a very difficult situation for the Philippines, so we’re going to do everything possible to support the AFP as it tries to secure the area,” he said.

He added that US will also help in rebuilding and rehabilitation of Marawi.

Cesna 208 aircraft for Philippines was first reported May 2016 when US government through its Defense Department has entered into couple of contracts that involve pseudo foreign military and foreign military sales to the Philippines. The contracts are with North American Surveillance System and L-3 Communications Corporation.

“North American Surveillance Systems, Titusville, Florida, has been awarded a $39,983,647 firm-fixed-price, undefinitized contract action. Contractor will provide modification and integration of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities into Cessna 208B aircraft, training, and field service representative support,” US Defense department said in a press release dated May 9, 2016.

“L-3 Communications Corp., doing business as Communication Systems West, Salt Lake City, Utah, has been awarded a $14,185,927 firm-fixed-price, undefinitized contract action for Cessna 208B intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) program production of ISR capabilities and spares,” it added.

Works were expected to be completed September 30, 2019 and September 30, 2017 – with the US envoy’s statement delivery is ahead of expected delivery.

  4. Hope that this toys could help Philipns.
    I think that usa should help philipns now, especially to increase the moral and capality of philipns,in softy and honor for their local partner wisdom and pride to handle their biggest threat now,so that the other asian country could see them as "the true friend" . We,the asians still thought and see the americans as they done to the kuomintang and south vieth many years back, even to the 18th era.
    I do believe that the phlilipns has have all they need....so let them handle as the philipins way of life. And usa(outsider) would very help them as the the very philipns need on they ways.
