MANILA -- Aside from the two missile-armed frigates now undergoing construction at Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea, the Philippine Navy (PN) will be getting additional ships of the same class, Defense spokesperson Arsenio Andolong said Wednesday.

Acquisition for these additional frigates will start during Horizon Two of the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program (RAFPMP), which is scheduled for 2018 to 2022 and has a budget of roughly PHP300 billion.

"In the PN, you will find this interesting. Aside from the two frigates that are currently being constructed, kukuha pa tayo ng additional (frigates)," Andolong said.

He, however, acknowledged that he has no idea how much money would be provided for the acquisition of these additional frigates.

"Yun ang hindi ko pa alam, dahil siyempre iba-budget, ia-apportion pa yung PHP300 billion (That is what I do not know yet. It's because there will be a budget allocation. The PHP300 billion will be apportioned)," he stressed.

The two frigates being built by Hyundai Heavy Industries has a contract of PHP18 billion, including its weapon systems and munitions.

It is designed to be capable of engaging air, surface and sub-surface threats. Deliveries are expected to start by 2020 and end on 2021.

    1. Pohang mah ompong n bohong

      Hapus
    2. There has been speculation that if they decide to acquire additional frigates, those corvettes will no not be brought. That would be bad news.

      Hapus
    3. Out of curiosity, why would it be bad?

      These new ships might even be cheaper to operate than those old ones. The bidding documents all those companies bought are also way more expensive than what the Filipinos paid for those corvettes.

      Hapus
    4. Corvette acquisition is already confirmed but if the Philippine govt decides to buy additional frigates then bnew corvettes will be scrapped ans perhaps buy more Pohang instead

      Hapus
    5. Because it is said that the corvettes are more capable then the frigates by HHI. If that is true that will be an irony. A corvette more capable than a frigate. I did not follow much on the frigate but i remember reading a filipino defence blog that mentioned this. How does procument work in the country because some say they just go for the cheapest bidder. Doing no justice to the armed forces. Especially the navy. Know that in an armed forces, the Navy is a very difficult service to grow n nuture. The airforce is next n followed by the army. Can any one confirm what i said above? Clarify if i am mistaken thanks.

    5. Paling koplak, waktu lihat berita pidato sang jendral di tv...

      "Sekarang, jika ada yang mau nyaleg, pertama yang akan saya akan tanya...

      'Punya dana berapa??'

      Percayalah saudara-saudara, jika pensiunan jendral punya uang triliunan, dijamin dia pasti korupsi.."

      Padahal yang pidato juga pecatan jendral yang punya duit triliunan. Hedeeeuuh!!!

    2. Karena malassia itu tukang maling.
      Dimana mana dia itu selalu maling.
      - maling budaya negara lain
      - maling wilayah negara lain
      - maling sempadan negara lain
      - maling engine pesawat pejuang
      - maling radar pertahanan negara lain
      - maling ransum pasukan pbb asal spanyol
      - dll

      Karena terlalu sering bergaduh dengan negara2 jirannya lebih baik negara malassia ini dikeluarkan dari negara anggota asean
