‘F16 Jets are Expensive to Maintain’, said PHL Senior Military Official

MANILA, Philippines — A senior military official was claiming that F16 fighter jets the US had offered to supply the Philippines would require huge operational and maintenance cost for the already-cash strapped Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

The official, who asked not to be named, said that while F16 jets are highly-capable aircraft that could make the Air Force more capable of guarding the Philippine skies, they are costly to operate and maintain.

Based on available data, the cost ranges from $7,000 to $24,000 per hour for each F16 jet.

Under the current peso to dollar rate, the Air Force would spend P371,000 per hour to fly one F16.

“This is on top of the cost of the procurement, transfer and the weapons systems. It’s very highly-capable fighter jet but it’s also a highly-maintenance aircraft. Why not if there’s money,” he said.

In 1998, the market value of  F16C/D was around $18.8 million or P996.4 billion apiece, apparently excluding upgrades and the weapon systems.

It was gathered that the US government had offered the Philippines this type of jet a long time ago but the previous administrations declined them due to lack of procurement, operational maintenance funds.

“This US F16s offer is not new, only that we don’t procure them due to financial constraints. It’s costly to operate,” he said.

Three US officials have written President Duterte offering the F16s but the President declined the offer saying that what the Philippines needs for now are trainer planes, close-air support aircraft, combat helicopters, to fight the insurgents.

Defense observers described the offer as another effort by the US government to dissuade the Philippines from procuring big ticket military platforms from Russia.

Visiting US Assistant Defense Secretary for Asian and Pacific security, Randall Schriver, earlier cautioned the Philippine government from procuring key military platforms from Russia saying doing so would be unhealthy to the US-Philippine alliance.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana spent almost a week in Moscow shopping for big ticket defense equipment including submarines, warships, attack helicopters, trainer planes, grenade launchers, sniper and assault rifles.

Russia is offering a soft loan to help the Philippines bankroll the modernization program of the AFP.

Lorenzana said nothing is final yet.

He said any government deal with any state for that matter, must go and pass through the tedious defense procurement processes.

    1. Sukhoi malon cuma 4 ekor je yg boleh terbang,sisanya sukhoi rongsokan semua wkwkwk

    2. Hitung2an biaya operasional disesuaikan dg waktu kirim.

      Beli 2018, dikirim komplit 2023:
      GDP Indonesia $1.6 trillion.
      GDP Philippines $0.5 trillion.

      Operasional 10-20 tahun:
      2030 - GDP Indonesia $2.6 trillion.

      Kalau riset sendiri IFX double engine:
      2050 - GDP Indonesia $9 trillion.
      2060 - GDP Indonesia $12 trillion.

      Kira2 1.5-2% military budget bisa super kuat :)

      The main mistake is buying Mig-29 instead of full squadron of F/A18D Hornet. Billions wasted on Mig-29 including monies spent on their upgrade (westernization) programmed. It was done during Mahaathir times. What a waste!

      Instead of buying F/A18F Super Hornet, Malaysia make another blunder by buying unproven and troublesome Su-30MKM. Mike Syabu statement further state of our stupidity in buying such expensive fighter jets!

      Now I am worry Malaysia will make ‘hattrick’ blunder with the return of Mahathir!

      Itu dari web malaysian defense lho frens... lucu ya beliau ini.. apa udah mulai gejala2 stroke ringan jadi komennya beda beda melulu 😁😁😁😁

    1. The blogs are brewing. One is even joked with a comment on one of max defense post where it shows a picture of a submarine tied to the pier and he said something like this is what our subs will be. 95% of the time tied to the pier. In other words doing nothing. As funny as it seems and thankfully people were able to understand the joke, it is something to worry about. If the submarines were indeed purchase, what Edward joked about will become a reality. I believe that the reason why they are backtracking on the fighters is most likely because of the planned acquisition of the submarines. Submarines are notorious for being suckers of budgets. The subs might kill or delay other programmes as well. They should stick to the original plan and get it in horizon 3. That is what i think. What about u guys?

      Hapus
    2. Couldnt agree more.. dats totally r8 thought. Do they know how expensive the sub ?,how to maintain the sub ? How much bucks to spent for the expensive terpedos ?

      I'd rather go for F16 instead.

      Hapus
    3. This issue is all about politics. Not defense. Sadly

      Hapus
    4. How come they said they dont have enough money for jets but they have money for subs ?

      Do they know the actual price of sub ?

      Indonesia spent for about $ 1,1 Billion for 3 changbogo class means approx $ 360 Million per unit exlude maint and terpedos.

      On the other hand Indonesia spent $ 700 Million for 24 F16Block 52id, so in this case 1 CHGBG Sub equal to 12 F16s block 52.

      Imagine for 3 subs cost means you gonna get 36 jets or can make 2 squadrons to defends your country. Dats gonna be huge different in air superiority for Philipine compare to underwater sub.
