The Philippines shops for US Made Defense Weapon for Armed Forces Modernization

171 comments

In Washington DC, in the course of increasing concern over renewed tensions in the West Philippine Sea and South China Sea, the Philippine Embassy in the United States is shopping for excess defense equipment from the United States under Washington’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program.

Jose L. Cuisia Jr., the Philippine ambassador to the United States, said he has asked the Department of National Defense and Armed Forces of the Philippines back home to provide him with a wish list of military equipment they will need to shore up the country’s defense capability.

He said he expected the defense department to “prioritize” its modernization goals, but was careful not to explicitly link the purchase of US excess defense articles to the Philippine military’s job of securing the territorial sovereignty of the country in the face of China’s alleged intrusions into the areas of the disputed Spratlys group claimed by the Philippines.

“There are defense articles that will be available, and that’s why I’m asking the Philippine Marines, Philippine Navy, Philippine Air Force and Philippine Army what their needs are,” said Cuisia who made this disclosure during a visit of former President Fidel Ramos at the embassy last week.

It is part of Cuisia’s job to negotiate with US officials contracts for the purchase of US military hardware. The FMS program is a standardized method for the sale by the US of defense equipment, services and training to foreign countries and governments.

Cuisia said the negotiations with the US are only after the defense department, in consultation with the Armed Forces of the Philippines, has determined “what the country needs.”

He said he has already seen the list provided by the Philippine Navy, but the other service commands—the Army and Air Force—have yet to come up with their own wish lists.

Hamilton class cutter

On May 13, Cuisia marked his debut as the new ambassador to Washington by signing the certificate of transfer of the decommissioned US Coast Guard Hamilton class cutter to the Philippines. (The cutters are called “Hamilton class” after their lead ship, the Hamilton, named after Alexander Hamilton, the first US Secretary of the Treasury.)

While in the US Coast Guard service, the vessel saw action in maritime safety and security missions, including drug and migrant interdiction, and search and rescue.

The patrol vessel, whose two 1,800 horsepower gas turbines can propel it to speeds of up to 28 knots, will be renamed the BRP Gregorio del Pilar. It is the biggest ship ever to be acquired by the Philippine Navy, and will be sailed to the Philippines in July 2011.

Philippine military officials have high hopes of acquiring a few other relatively modern patrol ships.

Cuisia, however, seemed lukewarm to purchasing a decommissioned US warship because of the high price tag, even if it’s being sold at a “very big discounted price.”

“Is that what we really need? Do we need another one, or do we need something else?” he said.

“Do we need a US Made frigate? Maybe that’s not what we need. Maybe what we need are fast patrol boats to go after pirates, after Abu Sayyaf, etc.,” he said.

Caution vs arms buildup

Ramos warned Philippine defense officials against promoting an arms buildup in the Spratlys group, a reputedly oil-rich chain of islands and reefs, which is claimed wholly or in part by the Philippines, China, Malaysia, Brunei, Vietnam and Taiwan. Arms buildup is not so necessary but if the whole country claiming the Spratly islands in the Philippines waters are keep on advancing their arm weapon, then it is necessary for the Philippines to strengthen their arm forces and equipment to gain respect from the country who are abusing the Philippine waters.

“There’s a buildup on many sides—even us. This is a little tiny buildup, which is the (purchase of a) Coast Guard cutter. Why don’t we use all this money that’s being budgeted for an arms buildup for peace, development and prosperity?” he said.

Escalating tensions in the Spratlys, which straddle busy international shipping lanes, is a relic of the Cold War, said the retired general who met with Cuisia and the Filipino community here during a 12-day swing of the US in May.

Ramos urged President Benigno Aquino III to accept an invitation from Chinese President Hu Jintao to visit Beijing. He said this would help ease the tension over China’s recent alleged intrusions.

As early as March, Mr. Aquino has been invited by China to make an official visit, but Malacañang has yet to set a date.

Philippine Arm Forces Weapon Modernization

The purchase of new Defense weapon for the Philippines is just coincidentally with the recent activity in the spratlys. It’s been a long time that the Philippines did not make any upgrades in its defense weapon which results to failure to identify and detect invaders in the Philippine waters and horizon by the armed forces.

The Philippines has been bullied as titled weak because of its capability to depend its territory so the recent upgrades and further on the way upgrades for the Philippine defense weapon is very important. The reaction of Mr. Ramos maybe a feeling of a little shame and insecure since he is a soldier and President Aquino is an economist. During the Ramos term when he was a president of the Philippines, he fail to make any upgrade of the Philippine defense weaponry. During his term, the corruption of the AFP is rampant and seems to be tolerated by him.

As the Philippines could afford for Frigate, submarines and etc even at a higher price then why not to include them in the DND wish list?

Joint patrol of rivals

Ramos envisions a “common defense” of the South China Sea instead of rival claimants locked in a perpetual war mode, pointing their arsenals against each other.

His proposed setup is akin to a joint patrol of contested waters in which all claimant countries would contribute forces to maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea.

“What do we do with these existing armies? Why don’t we in Asia Pacific agree to treat each other like partners in peace and prosperity instead of us potential rivals 10 years from now?” he said.

For this idea of Ramos, this is good but it seems to be impossible as china and Vietnam want to takeover most part of the Philippine waters and islands in the West Philippines Sea for their greed dream to control the oil and gas of the region? They are thinking for their own well not for the region. They want more power both weapon and economy and it is a competition not sharing what each other have.

If the Philippines will not level up, then the bottom line is the Philippines would be abuse buy the neighboring countries. The sense of having modern defense weapon is to gain respect and capability to protect its territory rather than being bullied by the neighboring countries and maybe in the next day they will squat the islands of the Philippines. What can this old man Ramos do if this will happen?

Ramos noted the marked changes in the global security environment after the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989, which precipitated the disintegration of the Soviet Union and with it, the threat of international communism.

Yes, it is true but it makes sense also that the Philippines will dream to be part of the so called well-armed nation. The Philippine is still developing and it could be imbalance if only the Philippine economy will grow but its capability to protect it territory is less. It must be Economy and Power will grow together; and part of power is weaponry advancement.

In both the Korean War and Vietnam War, the US had pursued a policy of containment, triggering the mushrooming of US military bases in Asia and around the world as the free world’s response to the advance of communism, he said.

The Philippines sided with the US in both wars, nurturing a political, economic and military relationship in post-World War II which did not always sit well with communist China.

But with China embracing capitalism, its economy is set to eclipse the US in 2016, as the International Monetary Fund recently predicted.

The real enemy

According to Ramos, the real enemy in the 21st century is no longer one country against the other.

“That’s outmoded. That’s a Cold War mentality,” he said.

“The force which is being applied one against the other and then continues to escalate should not just be identified with the No. 1 and No. 2 superpowers (the US and China) because who is the enemy? What is the enemy now? It’s international terrorism. It’s endemic disease. It’s climate change. It is poverty,” Ramos said.

“Can you imagine how much better the quality of life all around the world, especially in the Philippines and in China and in many parts of the world, would be if the huge amount of dollars, of yuan and pesos will be devoted to economic and social development?” he said.

The Ramos Peace and Development Foundation is working toward this goal of regional stability and prosperity, he said.

To end the Spratlys tension

It is just very simple to end the tension in Spratlys. Since the UNCLOS formulated the LAW of the SEAS then the very thing is just to implement it. Any country will violate must be sanctioned. That’s all!. Vietnam will return to its UNLCOS allowed limit of 200 Nautical Mile Exclusive Economic Zone, the Philippines, Malaysia, China and Brunei will obey and follow the law of the UNCLOS and it could be the end of the tension.

    Correct!

    Ramos is insecure! HE is an inotil soldier. Ramos is also betraying the country after the sold the National Steel Corporation in Iligan City to Malaysia

    Before, Iligan City Philippines is the biggest and largest manufacturer of steel in all Asia but after ramos sold it to malaysia with huge kickbacks, Iligan City Philippines lost the title of biggest steel manufacturer

    because of ramos the former president of the Philippines, many executives of the National Steel Corporation committed suicide after loosing their job.

    NSC (National Steel Corporation) Accountants could prove the lie of ramos.

    Ramos is also corrupt and must be jailed!

    Ramos dont want Armed buildup because he still receiving cash gift from china to bar the Philippine Government for future defense weaponry upgrade.

The Philippines have fought with the americans from WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, The Cold War, The Gulf War, and the war on terrorism...There are thousands of young filipino men serving in the US Armed Forces..Filipino is part of the american culture and society...

    During the Marcos era, Philippine was one of the advanced military forces in Asia. Now she is one of the weakling. Fipininos are one of the bravest race in the world. We don't just back down, we always figh back, because we filipinos have balls and that's the truth.

    Many centuries ago our ancestors fought the outsiders with their barehands and bravery, using only a handful of guns and bolos but many uses bamboos.

    But now this is a new era, a new world. We can no longer fight with just barehands and a hand ful of obsolete guns and weaponry. We have to stand up together and gain control once again. Corruption must be stop once and for all. If China attack which it will, how would our country will going to fight back, with bamboos and bolos? those era are over, we have to build up again and gain respect. Any intrusion must stop.

    US is very powerfull allie, but we should not rely to much from anyone, we should stand up on our own. What would happen if the US can no longer sustain the military what are we going to do? Our government should consider not as option.

Iessons Iearned are: bataan and the phiIippines feII cause of no Navy or air force. The troops fought on but couId not hoId out without suppIy. They where overwheImed by a superior weII trained and equipped force. You guys and the americans fought braveIy and with courage and guts. My mother was a surgicaI nurse at corrgehidor. she got out on the PT boats. She returned Iater. My father was a scout with your resistance roviding information during that time. He aIso returned as a paratrooper. My uncie (mothers brother) was with him and kiIIed there. He is buried there in the phiIippines. It is how my father met my mother. your now reaizing in that timawa discussion no "one size fits aII" weapons have a use. tanks have a purpose. defending open ground. biasting fortifications and defending cities or beachehads (what does history of tank battIe teach us about those matters). pure jungie fighting is done by mobiIe troops. AKA paratroopers, cav or marines. They empIoy things Iike anti tank guns, cannon, attack choppers or Iight vehicies that are best tracked. even tow fired gun or simiiar weapons. coin aircraft such as super tuscano or skyhawks support these efforts (even A10 thunderboIts). Aircraft (fighter and attack and air Iift) are the fastest effective way for this. protection of those forces and sea deniaI is the key. SAMS (patriots and others) combned with radar and Iayerd defense is the onIy way. You cannot defend every inch of ground. You can deny them and cut them off and starve them (sound famiIiar) you need effective weapons too fight with. DO NOT GIVE YOUR SOIDIERS,SAIIORS, AIRMEN A SUICIDE MISSION!!!!!!!. they are not japanese. its stupid way too prosecute war. make theother dumb bastard die for his country!!! if your considering Ight armour then give them at Ieast a strong gun with the right ammunition. Give them fighter PIanes not coffins. Give them a way that is worthy of the sacrifice they make. DO NOT REPEAT BATAAN!! your peopie and pooIiticians owe them that if your asking your youth to Iay down their Iives.... dont bring home another generation of broken and shamed fighters (battIing bastards of bataan) its wrong. you can do this..begin to buiId up a force that knows it can fight. Your aIIies wiII come. we have too.....at the moment we are trying too dissuade the chinese. you need too use this time too become stronger. do it! BuiId roads bunkers for aircraft and command and controI faciities hunkered down. put SAM systems, aquire frigates and subs and modern fighre aircraft. go for a big gunned Iight tanks and good Iight armour and 155 guns. its no one thing is about quaIity and force muItipIcation and command and controI and mobiIity. key areas need heavy protection. tanks are used for that purpose. You wiII uItaimateIy fight a defensive battIe too buy time (once again) make them bIeed badIy. think of how you can hurt them the worst! make it a bitch for them...nasty nasty nasty

Mcarthur troops where not trained weII nor did the have modern weapons or enough aircraft or effective surveiIIance or inteIIigence (very important!) the japanse guns and armour and better trained troops (fought in china prior too invading)combined with navaI air and Iand based aircraft took the toII on the defenders. you badIy need aircraft that are modern and protected and with a modern controI system that is sustainabIe. your ships at sea can entertain them awhiIe. subs can make them bIeed and screw up troops and suppIy. air and sea Iift you need with protection of them. subs give them pause too think and consider....a good investment....attack dieseI subs...quiet with punch.

    Now, at least we know that we are not alone.. the taxes deducted by your Government to help the Philippines’ armaments upgrade is a big help already.

    I plan to run this Donation for the Spratlys to have a direct support to the Philippines government and I am calling the more than 9 Million Filipinos who are working outside the Philippines to be part of this project.

    Me, I have committed to donate $ 1,000 US Dollar each year or ₱ 43,000.00 Piso (Philippine Peso) beginning 2011

    In the Philippines, there is no tax for the modernization of the armaments so we call the people to voluntarily help the government even at least 0.05 cents or 5 cents Piso would be a big help already if all the 94 Million People will help.

    I would like to comment more on this because as per the Navy needs for my opinion it really needs at one destroyer capable of blasting 10or more navies in one shut like the US destroyer the most advance in the world if the Phlippines can acquire this even one only can protect the Spratly island like the USS Chung Houn, there is another destroyer a bit smaller than this it cost 1billion dollar only but it worthy of it defense system even it took five years to deliver but it s worth while not like those Hamilton class if the govt. invest in defense really then this is the best one needed for.

  115. I agree with the USS Chung Hoon capability but how about her capability to do her job during the stormy days?

    As you said nothing of the hamilton class kind could resist the stormy weather of the Philippines except her so how about let say for example there is an to happen while a typhoon with territory storm signal number 5 hits the area?

    For me, it is still better to invest for the Hamilton class because the weather of the Philippines is unpredictable.

    If you know, even in good season when the sun will set, the most dangerous sea in Romblon in the heart of the Philippines will start to get wild.

    That area is like in the bosom of the angry giant which heart will palpitate when his triggered.

    First thing to think is the capability of the war ship to do her job in the stormy ocean..

    second is her capability

    If the Philippines could have the like the USS Chung Hoon to protect the Spratlys, its great but if she can't resist to do her task in the spratlys when the typhoon come then the bottom line is "the spratlys could become guardless again and vulnerable to a massive attack and invasion".

    The retiring cruisers Ticonderoga CIass ae the same huII as the Chung Hoon. They are essentiaIIy the same ships but fitted out differentIy and that is why the ticonderogas where cIassified as cruisers. The arIeigh Burke CIass destroyers (Chung hoon is one of them) are nearIy the same size. They are big destroyers.

    i correct myseIf. The ticonderogas is the same huII as the spruance cIass destroyer (biigest destroyer ever for USN). It is a crusier due too its mission and systems (more advanced) The Burke CIass is not far behind her in size however. They are both aegis system ships.

  118. Anonymous says:

    the arIeigh burke cIass type destroyers can withstand storms but they are not specificaIIy designed for that duty such as a high endurance cutter is. TypicaIIy warships of most nations operate away from storms (chinese incIuded). TypicaI standard operating procedure is not too risk them too it if in any way possibIe. wartime situations can bring a forced situation where they have too. The cutters however are better designed for that purpose. The crews have the SAR requirement as weII. They are trained too go where angeIs fear too tread "so that others may Iive" DeaIing with mother nature takes a gutsy type of person with survivaI instincts.

    Yes i too beIeive that the cutters you have picked are good choices. I do think though beyond these you need to have some modern warships buiIt. They wiII take two to three years before Iaunching. They wiII offer more "punch" as they are specific too their task (surface warfare fighting). Togeather these ships aII compIment each other. They are made for different things but can share responsibiIities. Its just each do certain things better then others in their specific roIes. It's one reason why i am not a proponent of the "mosquito navy concept" it puts aII your faith in one type of ship. If that ship has IiabiIitys in an area you become too weak in the requirement. The USN uses ships of varying size, type for different purposes. The chinese do as weII. They have many patroI and OPV. They are in the midst of buiIding out bigger ships now (aquiring aircraft carrier and Iarger more compIex destroyers). The reason is for different needs and requirements (disturbing). Ships of that nature are more offensive in nature. They are designed too take the fight too somepIace eIse. The reasons for that can be two foId. Too be exact, i am reading your government intends too acquire two more hamiIton cutters. They are negotiating for them now. How soon they appear in country is to yet to be determined. SIeep weII, I think your president is doing a very good job. Your country is getting some of the Ieadership it has soreIy needed for awhiIe. Nobody is perfect on every situation to be sure, but this guy is putting his heart and effort too the task. EvidentIy he has some inteIIigent foIks heIping him too. Some good decisions are being made. FrankIy i wouId up the tempo a bit more. But i have no view too what goes on from inside. However, progress is being made. but perhaps the air force couId move a tad bit faster. They seem very afraid of making a mistake. aquiring those jet trainers needs too kick off. it takes time for jet piIots too get up too speed. They need reps. if they dont have a short Iist of identified fighters they need too move on it. Im assuming the choice of trainer is being driven by that. The navy definiteIy seems too be working the probIem. Some of these new buiId decisions need too get kicked off. DeIivery is stiII two to three years from that.

    the obvious choices for jet fighters are F-16, grippen and f-18. My preference is the F-15 but avaiIabiIity of these may be a probIem (cost may be aIso. ) regarding the cost issue there couId be a compromise made. Some aircraft for the air superiority roIe and some for muItimisson. (F-15's and F-16's for eaxmpIe). But seIection of a trainer is dependant on what type of aircraft is preferred I wouId think..

    The burkey class destroyer was design for all season though we do not know the system that use for high endurance like cutter, how ever i may prefer to purchase one of this destroyer while waiting thing ship cutter will perform in the absence of this burkey class destroyer it worth to have this destroyer since our navy in need of warship. the WHEC, was not design for combat only for interdiction and patrolling coastal areas but for fighting purpose the has no element to protect herself in the coming enemy missile.the burkey class was fitted to the combat operation and capable though a bit expensive but the duty of this destroyer is 20 fold for cutter, 1 billion dollars is not much compare to loose resources of more than trillion barrels of oils.with five years you can have this destroyer a sophisticated destroyer you know . call on to the govt. dont think twice must purchase the Burkey class destroyer. the fund from Malampaya is more that the amount this destroyer require, the untouch fund of malampaya according to one of the congressman 177.7 billion pesos which more than enough to but 3 burkey class destroyer.Maintenance is not much with that the ship is not roaming around 24/7 he was only station in one place which is reacheable with in of his radar defense system.nonetheless this the need of our Armforces to safeguard the resources the EEZ and most particular the soverienty. I dont know why till now the AFP the DND and others branches of govt. still looking for bedding this is not need to do it just the govt. contact the US Govt and sign contract how much the deal and they pay every year i beleived US govt will agree with in 5 years the destroyer is on her way home on new port of responsibility that is philippines. 1billion including training of military personnel.so every year only 250 million dollars why cannot acquire.I think govt. should look into this very urgent in order our neighbors shall think twice before they step to our border.All officials of the AFP must agree to this proposal this is for your own protection as well specially sailors convince all the department concern to purchase the arleigh burkey class destroyer rather than corvettes.

    We must joint in hand to convince the govt. to purchase Burkey class destroyer immediately and fighter jets with training jets as well radar air defense is no use with out jet fighters, our country in need of 50 jet fighters to have superiority in airspace which ounce our airforce is one of the best airforce in asia.
    Imagine if you have naval destroyer and jet fighters nevertheless no nation will land any offensive in our waters, Ramos warned the govt of purchasing armaments because during his time he cannot do it now he regretting about of his deeds; first to the people second to AFP and the most from his country. so if the Pnoy administration will not buy any armaments for defense he laugh and said he!he! were the same but Pnoy is looking towards for the properous management including top priority is to upgrade the defnse capability, he lose face he is general but did not do something for the defense instead he sacrifice many lives of the soldier because lack of modern weapons to combat insurgencies, and this is his protocol to neutralize the purchase of weapons and defense system. because felt guilty in as much as Pnoy purchase this things he is vetto on this plan concequently.So govt go on to purchase a real combat ship somehow you need first hazard perry class which US now decommissioned there are two ship now available with armaments USS Jarret and USS Doyle this both 37 years old but capable of depending your country he has Phalax Goal keeper 2 units guided missile system air to ground anti missile and ASW weapon system. so what are you waiting for go and look this 2 Frigates while your burkey class is on contruction with another WHEC possible i think will be much secure your territory.go ahead AFP go on to this US destroyer nothing can lose to you but you gain reputation beforehand

    I agree with you guys. There are options avaiIabIe. The Ticonderoga cruiser is about the same size as an ArIeigh Buke destroyer.
