MANILA -- With the cancellation of the Bell 412 EPI contract from Bell Helicopter and Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC), the Philippine Air Force (PAF) is now looking again for possible suppliers capable of supplying it with aircraft with similar capabilities.

The possible suppliers and their respective countries would be determined by the research of the technical working group, PAF head Lt. Gen. Galileo Gerard Kintanar said Saturday.

This would follow the same procurement process instituted for the Bell 412 EPI contract, he added.

"As of now we do not want to speculate. the (technical) working group will look into (for) any solution from the east and western countries," Kintanar said.

The Department of National Defense (DND) earlier issued a notice to CCC terminating the contract for the supply and delivery of 16 units of Bell 412 combat utility helicopters for the PAF.

In a statement, DND public affairs office chief Arsenio Andolong said this is in compliance with President Rodrigo Duterte's directive and pursuant to the Government Procurement Law (RA 9184) which authorized contract termination for the convenience of the government.

The move comes after the Canadian government ordered the review of the PHP12-billion deal between the DND and CCC after receiving reports that the Philippines is planning to use the helicopters against rebel forces.

"While the combat utility helicopters being purchased are primarily for thepurpose of transporting personnel and supplies, the Department believes that it does not owe the Canadian government any justification for an outright purchase of equipment from a privately-owned company," Andolong said.

He also stressed that the DND will continue to pursue the modernization program, and will look into procuring the combat utility helicopters from other countries in lieu of the Bell 412.

    1. Yeah... Mistral cancellation is a sample on how powerfull US can control sales within their underbow countries. France should get the real money from Russia but at the last corner US pushin France not to sellin the ship to Rusia. Egpyt get the ship at the time.

      And the last news is.. US restricted for selling Rafale to Egypt due to they want Egypt to acquired F16 Vipers... as we know theres a lot of components in Rafale's came from US sources made.

      Hapus
  6. the west, the coalition of europe and u.s. doesnt fight big wars, nor confronts a strong enemy it only does this through last resort. it uses barbarism/rebellion to weaken smaller countries. politics is a brainwashing tool. iraqi's are slaughtering themselves. syria and iraq are currently inside a killing pit.

    1. Reading one of the analyst that said Asean will be the next syria's after US finally can developed their own Shale Oil means there is no more interest in oil, they have to search for new sources.. Food !!

      The analysist said that China (which has big trades market in ASEAN) knows diz.. thus China plans to eliminates diz western plan by raising south china sea issues in order to warn all nations in ASEAN to get prepared and boosting their military capabilities.

      As we saw recently on how fast military acquisition among ASEAN Nations recently, it will give the message on how different and powerfull ASEAN right now and western would think twice to doing their plan.

      Well... thats just a conspiracy theory.. could be right or wrong..but in the end maybe we should thanks to China for self reminder on how fragile ASEAN Nations facing dramatically political changes without increasing defense capabilities. ☺☺
