Warship from Europe will be transferred to Philippine Navy
Another warship will be added in the Philippine Navy inventory aside from the second Hamilton Class cutter that will arrive this month, said President Ninoy Aquino. This current acquisition increases our warship inventory to three.
Speculations are all over the web whether President Ninoy Aquino decided to purchase Maestrale class frigate or Lupo class frigate from Italy. See the warship photos below. It is also being said that Philippines and Italy signed a 5 year agreement for a fast track procurement of Italian-supplied new and used military equipment.
The administration of President Ninoy Aquino has already spent $351 million dollars for the Armed Forces of the Philippines modernization program compared to roughly $50 million dollars for the past three (3) administrations.
Why are we buying junk warships from other countries?
Simple answer. We could not make a quick jumpstart and buy advance warships even if we have enough budget because it takes a long period to develop knowledge in handling efficient maintenance procedures.
This November, three multi-purpose attack crafts will also be delivered to the Philippine navy.
