The Philippine Coast Guard will receive the first two of the four Short C-23 Sherpa transport aircraft to be turned over by the United States in December.

This was confirmed by PCG spokesperson Commander Armand Balilo in a chance interview at Camp Aguinaldo on Tuesday.

The planes will be transferred as part of the US Excess Defense Articles program.

The four Sherpa planes are seen to boost the Coast Guard’s monitoring capabilities, and will augment the Islander planes used for maritime patrol missions.

The expected medium lift transport planes from the United States Army can carry 30 crew members and passengers.

The PCG is beefing up its capabilities amid the rising tensions in the South China Sea.
Last month, it acquired the first of its 10 multi-role response vessel from Japan.
