Duterte Approves P300-Billion Military Upgrade

MANILA - President Rodrigo Duterte has approved a 5-year plan to spend P300 billion ($5.6 billion) to modernize the outdated military, defense officials said on Wednesday.

A previous 15-year upgrade plan failed to take off in the mid-1990s, leaving the Philippines with outdated hardware, including warships from World War 2 and helicopters used by the United States in the Vietnam War.

"We have the go signal now to buy brand-new equipment, like fighters, drones, light tanks, radar, an additional frigate and a submarine to boost our defense capability," said a defense official, who declined to be named because he is not authorized to speak to media.

The previous administration of Benigno Aquino III spent about a third- P91 billion ($1.7 billion) - on the military during his 2010-2016 term in office, mostly on secondhand ships and planes.

Duterte approved the P300-billion modernization plan at a meeting with top defense and military officials last month.

A senior general said Duterte had approved 33 modernization projects, with a focus on domestic security and protecting the vast maritime borders of the archipelago.

"We're putting a premium on unmanned aerial vehicles, long-range patrol aircraft, offshore patrol ships and an electric-diesel submarine," he told Reuters.

The military is bent on preventing another Islamic State-inspired insurgency after rebels seized Marawi, the country's only Islamic city, for five months last year.

The Philippines also faces a challenge in South China Sea, a strategic waterway most of which is claimed by China, which has built military outposts there.

Besides the Philippines and China, Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam also have rival claims on the area, through which $3 trillion worth of sea-borne goods pass every year.

Manila had planned to acquire four submarines after 2023, but the plan could be accelerated to boost the Navy's regional capabilities, said Arsenio Andolong, a defense department spokesperson

"We want to get submarines as soon as possible," he said.

Duterte had set aside $1 billion for new helicopters and light tanks, but no purchases have been made yet.

The Philippines has received donated military hardware from Australia, China, Japan, Russia and the United States, mostly to assist in disaster response and fighting militants and pirates.

  1. long-range patrol aircraft, offshore patrol ships and an electric-diesel submarine.

    Itulah yang dibutuhkan negara kepulauan seperti Filipina.

    Indonesia butuh lebih banyak lagi.

    Long range patrol aircraft : Poseidon, butuhnya 8, minimal 4, kalau kepepet 2 dulu nggak apa, khan dibantuin cn235 mpa.


    OPV :
    Indonesia butuhnya minimal 14 unit.
    Itulah sebabnya Target Bakamla adalah 4 unit 110 meter dan 10 unit 80 meter.

    Electric diesel submarine :
    RI butuhnya minimal 12-15, tapi kalau kepepet 8 dulu nggak apa, sambil tebar jaringan sonar bawah laut di beberapa titik.
