AFP- Philippines 48 Fighter Jets, 6 Submarines, anti-ship cruise missile – Washington CNAS

99 comments


WASHINGTON – The Philippines needs up to four squadrons (48) of upgraded Lockheed Martin F-16 fighter jets, more well-armed frigates and corvette-size, fast to surface combatant vessels and minesweepers and four to six mini submarines, possibly obtained from Russia, to build a credible defense force in the face of China's increasing belligerence in the South China Sea, the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) said.


This level of capability would far exceed current Philippine planning and finances and it would be in Washington's interest to make it easier for Manila to acquire excess US fighters, frigates and other weapons system and encourage other countries such as Japan and South Korea to help modernize the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), it said in an article "Defending the Philippines: Military modernization and the challenges ahead."

The CNAS article on Thursday written by Richard Fisher said the AFP's modernization program was estimated to cost about $1 billion over the course of President Aquino's six-year term – an amount that pales in comparison to China's 2012 official military budget of more than $100 billion.

A high-level Philippine delegation led by Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario and Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin was in Washington this week for discussions on each other's needs to ensure freedom of navigation in the South China Sea. 

A Hamilton-class frigate, now the flagship of the Philippine Navy, was turned over by the US last year and a second one is forthcoming. A third frigate is being sought.

The article lauded Aquino's determination to build up his country's military forces and said he has spent more than $395 million on AFP modernization since coming into office, compared with $51 million annually in the previous 15 years.

It said he is seeking to purchase a small number of F-16s supported by six to 12 Surface Attack Aircraft (SAA)/Lead-In Fighter Training (LIFT) aircraft such as the subsonic Italian Aermacchi T-346 or the supersonic Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) T/A-50, both of which could be modified to perform secondary combat missions.

A considerable investment in training, logistical support and basing will have to precede the aircrafts' service entry, estimated to be in 2016, the article said.

In 2011, the Philippine Navy (PN) restored a program to acquire two multi-role vessels in the form of 5,000-to-10,000-ton Landing Platform Deck (LPD) ships capable of supporting Marine amphibious operations supplying outposts in the Spratly Islands or conducting disaster relief operations.

The PN is also looking for a land-based anti-ship cruise missile like a version of the US Boeing AMG-84 Harpoon which has a range of 120 kms and could also be used by frigates and F-16s, said Fisher, a senior fellow with the International Assessment and Strategy Center, in his article.

"Finally, the PN would like to acquire a submarine by 2020, which would become its most ambitious and expensive program to date," the article said.


Given the economic and political stakes in ensuring that all East Asian countries maintain unimpeded access to the sea lanes near the Philippines, both those nations and the United States now share a real interest in the success of the AFP modernization.

The timing is also fortuitous, the article said, because "the United States now has a pragmatic partner in President Aquino who has proved his intention to invest in national defense and is willing to rise above nationalist resentments from the bases era."

The left wing Communist party dominant in the Philippines booted the biggest Americans Airbase in the Pacific in 1992.

USA real-time satellite surveillance assistance over maritime territory to the Philippines

The three-week standoff between the Philippines and China at Panatag Shoal (Scarborough Shoal) in the West Philippine Sea (South China Sea) has led the US to agree to provide the Philippines, its old ally, with satellite surveillance assistance, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said on Friday.

US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta in Washington announced the American assistance after a Philippine delegation conferred with him.

"In a meeting with the Philippine delegation at the Pentagon, Secretary Panetta agreed to intensify Philippine-US cooperation on real-time information-sharing to enable the Philippines to know what is happening in its maritime territory on a 24/7 basis and enforce its laws within its territory," a DFA statement said.

Panetta also gave assurance the US "will do everything possible to work with the Philippines."

The DFA also added that the US, one of the most advanced countries in intelligence gathering via surveillance satellites, will be sending PHL "real-time" information about territorial intrusions to assist the country in addressing and preventing similar incidents in the West Philippine Sea.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario and Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin had met this week with Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Washington.     

The US has declared that it will be aiding the Philippines once it is attacked to honor its 60-year-old defense treaty with Manila, but until then it shall not take sides.

It also pledged to increase its foreign military financing allocation for the Philippines to $30 million from just $15 million last year, said Assistant Secretary Andrew Shapiro, head of the State Department's Bureau for Political-Military Affairs.

"The State Department will explore additional creative funding streams for the Philippines," Shapiro added.

A second Hamilton-class cutter will also be transferred by the US to PHL for use in monitoring the West Philippine Sea and other maritime territories.

The standoff between the Philippines and China began on April 10 when Chinese fishermen were said to have intruded and poached at Panatag Shoal. The Philippine Navy tried to arrest them but two Chinese government ships intervened which started the standoff.

Both countries regard Panatag Shoal as their territory with the Philippines claiming it to be part of its Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) which is within 200 nautical miles of the nearest Philippine land mass. China said the shoal, which it refers to as Huanyang Island, has been theirs since the Yuan dynasty in the 13th century.

However, the Philippines pronounces its claim based on the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) rule, which gives it the exclusive right to explore and develop Panatag Shoal, a part of its EEZ. UNCLOS was approved by both countries.

The shoal is a coral reef surrounding a lagoon located 124 nautical miles from the Philippines' Zambales province and 472 nautical miles from China's Hainan province.

Composed of more than 200 islands, rocks, reefs and coral outcrops, West Philippine Sea has always been a place of uneasy conflict where the Philippines, China, Brunei, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam are all claiming part of it. The sea is home to immeasurable natural resources

    CHINA should at least take off the Philippines flag as a sign that that Scarborough Shoal is NOT EXCLUSIVELY belong to Philippines alone and US said that she did not want to take side. Further, history had stated that Philippines had not become a "nation state" not until she was annexed by Spain after the Magellen voyage. Lest anyone forget, the Spain actually massacre 60, 000 Chinese in Manila ghetto sometime when Koxinga (Zheng Cheng-gong) threaten to invade Philippines (Please refer to the authoritative book - "Lord of the Rim" written by Seagrave, a pastor's son). The Spain monarchy should apologize to the Chinese for their sin of their fathers. Otherwise the monarchy or by extension the Spain and Philippine government should be prosecuted for "crime against humanity" .

    RAFAEL and Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) have teamed to introduce a short range (15km max range) low level (20 – 9,000m altitude) integrated, all-weather air defense system, which consists of the Python 5 IR guided, and Derby RF guided Beyond Visual Range (BVR) missiles.

    Poor Filipinos for Gross Reserves?

    Lol! Funny!.. Whatta question?

    Why many Filipinos are poor?

    1. Just Lazy
    2. Lack of Motivation
    3. So complacent and lack of initiative in life
    4. Contented of being poor

    Do you want to get rich? Work in farm or make your own farm.. and sell your products.. Philippines products are so in demand around the world..

    I traveled may islands in the Philippines and its undefiled.. why dont you convert it into small farms..

    Many grassland and idle lands... why keep on paying taxes in it? Convert it to Farm..


    Philippines have the rights to become a powerful country... for external and internal security.. Philippines must invest for advance technology weapon to avoid bully

    Whaaa! Do you guys know most farms are owned by the rich people? Most idle arable lands that can be owned by private citizens are already owned by the few elites. Some of them are called haciendas.

    Why do we even need to buy weapons? Didn't our government declared loud and clear that war is not an option? Also, what is the use, all those in the list will not be enough to fight China for less than a week! Whaaaa! and US will NOT fight besides us. They will support us only by sending supplies, just like what happened in Israel vs Arabs and Afghanistan vs USSR. Why? Because this war will be fought by proxy and not direct fight US vs China or else it may trigger a bigger war!

    MOST FARMS ARE OWNED BY RICH PEOPLE?

    - Prove this word! I am not rich, I am aboriginal or Native or say Lumad of the Philippines. BUT I have farm. I have 4 hectares.. even it is small but it is a farm.. It could yeild hundred thousand a month...

    - Haciendas are just few! but you are right! Land of the lumad must be return to the Lumad.. Elites in the Philippines Squatted those lands from the Lumad during the Spanish regime and they did not return it to the lumad... I agree with this point.. but do not say that most.. because majority farm owners are poor and farmers.. Maybe only in Manila to have that but in the other islands and provinces.. it is still not being developed.

    WHY DO WE NEED TO BUY WEAPON?

    - To be called as independent country, to stop relying USA powers, and to experience the freedom in deciding for the country's security.

    - To deter China and other neighboring country envading and squatting the territory and islands of the Philippines (North Borneo, Spratyly, Scarborough and Miangas)

    USA WILL NOT FIGHT BEHIND THE PHILIPPINES

    - It is the rights of the USA of refuse to side the Philippines because they have other problems and other interest too.

    -USA could not afford that WAR will happen now and it could hurt their economy and chances the WAR in the South China Sea could be more expensive and chances also that 60 to 90% of Filipinos will die in the war.

    - ISRAEL is the Land of Jesus Christ and this land must be protected from Anti Christ.. so the ISRAEL must defend the Land of GOD. Most Americans are God Believer so they must support for peace not war.

    - Israel is one of the most important partner of America because of its most advance and sophisticated Weapon technology that did not exist in America such as the SPYDER and the Invisible, intangible Kinetic Ballistic Protection.

Meron tlagang mali, ang mali yung bigyan ng malawak na lupain yung ibang lahi na ngconvert ng kanilang cetizenship bilang maging pinoy. dapat mahigpit ang policy tonggressman dyan!!! na para bang darating ang panahon na yung purong pinoy ay wala ng mabibiling lupa sa kanyang sariling bayan.

    Hindi ako naniniwala na porke wala kang malawak na lupain ay hindi ka na magiging productive at aasa ka nalang aasa sa gobyerno at magnoynoying ka nalang sa kalsada at reklamo ka nlang ng reklamo ay wala tlgang mangyayari sayo, ikaw ay part ng problema ng bayan at hindi ka part ng sulosyon ng bayan.. bibigyan kita ng isang halimbawa, kung yung mga preso sa bilibid prison sa muntinlupa ay nagiging productive, ang kanilang obra ay nakikilala na sa ibat ibang bansa sa pamamagitan ng online at kumikita sila. Ang ibang preso pa nga ay naka pagpaaral ng kanilang anak kahit nasa loob sila ikaw pa kaya na laya ka wala ka sa loob ng kulongan.. Ang kelangan maabilidad at flexible..

    para naman sa gobyerno.. paigtingin ang education para maging maabilidad ang mga mamayan.. asistihan o etrain para maging productive..

    Doon naman sa pag upgrade ng military ay tama lang.. bakit kayong mga aktibista o NPA ay totol kayo sa pagupgrade totol kayo sa balikatan? eh kung yung china na superpower ay nkikipag joint military exercise sa RUSSIA eh tayo pa kaya? maliit na bansa at walang kakayahan idepensa ang sarili.. wag puro yabang lang.. sa panahon ngayon ay hindi pwede yung para my sarling mundo tayo.. kung my interes satin ang US dapat my interes karin sa kanya.

    THE FUTURE OF OUR GENERATION DEFEND ON US

    I would like to encourage and call all my fellow OFW around the world; this is the time that we must unite and to protect our own motherland again dominance. What our old folk told to us before that if we used the small fiber of coconut tree us a broom they cannot even move small piece of paper but if the handful of brooms joint together we can achieve our goal. We joint together to stand behind our Filipino soldier again any belligerence to our nation.

    Don’t let our self-falling and blaming each one another we need to focus our self and joint our hand together and what we can contributes to the security of our country. I am suggesting that if every one of us can contribute $ 100 each of us ofw around the globe we can achieve something. Do you believe that sometime a crazy idea is a good idea? I remember one thing before while, I read the speech of most famous President and he told people, what the government could do to this nation, now I realize maybe its time for us to ask our self, own what we can do to our country.

    As of these time our government still negotiating to the American government regarding (12) F16 equivalent to one squadron and to South Korean fighter jet if the OFW in general will agree and full our resources to donate the same what our government are acquiring to protect the Philippines and our love one, our future generation and territory. The price of one F16 in our calculation around $19,000, million dollars I think if we can joint together, we can gain something. There is a lot of thing we can select and contribute to our arm forces only we need the resources. Regarding armament like airplane, ships, submarine are subject to negotiation by our government. However, it came to selection on what airplane the Philippines need, my self I prepared American made like F16, is multiple role fighter jet. What we need now, how to share the burden of our government when the time like this. Don’t let our Filipino soldier face there enemy with empty handed if we can support them these is the time. Our governments they will not asking us anything it defend on us how to share the burden.

    These topics are open to any suggestion to my fellow OFW no needs for us to criticizing each one another what we need now are action while our nations are engage in bullying by other country. No need for us to play or involve in any politics discussion because we are not Politian’s, let focus our self on how to agree. The fruitful result is defend in our hand on how to help by changing our ideas each one of us and continues dialogue.

    I would like to enlighten more this topic to my fellow OFW that may be you will ask why we are always asking for help to United State, beside America who else?, try to look this way in America, anything the Philippines need regarding military hardware, technology, name it, maybe they can provide. Some of us always asking there integrity, I remember one time when I travel, my set mate is American and we starting sharing good stories and he told me that one time he assigned in bataan during world war 11 and he explain that some of his friend even American Nurse was capture by japanes when the corridor was surrender. I verify these stories when there is one American woman capture by and Iraqi soldier during Kuwait war. Maybe some of us forget every thing during world war 11 who among Filipinos fight side by side only American that why (tinagure-an tayong mga Filipino na may sakit salimot) we always forgot every thing after all. Guys don’t do like that, our old folk share more good time stories during that time we must acknowledge the good thing they deed to our country, yes I agree with you that sometime they got mistake, but we must admit that we are only human.


    Problem:

    If some of you have a good ideas?

    1. How to secure our resources
    2. What Bank
    3. What type of battle ship
    4. Offshore Banking
    5. What entity
    6. What is the mechanics
    7. How to procure

    Conclusion:

    Our homeland is in collision with other nation don’t let this things happen to us again we must protect our natural resources our future generation. Remember always that Filipinos are loving people according to the west. Let start talking on how to agree and to execute our plan in earlier time as possible.

    THE FUTURE OF OUR GENERATION DEFEND ON US



    May 26, 2012

    The resent comment of our friend regarding on how OFW, acquire and support to our arm forces it give us more enthusiasm to continue what we believe. Will, regarding the funding, for now that is the focus of our changing ideas. I always believe that more heads are better than one. I would like to encourage more people to joint this OFW crusade to make our fellow Filipino aware what is going on in our motherland.

    If we agree they thing our arm forces need, we will discus the mechanics, on how to create a joint communiqué to our fellow OFW. The funding is most critical part in our discussion; remember that some of our colleagues they presume this will make us moneymaking machine that why I always said we must agree and create a new guideline and the fruitful conversation it defend on us on how to generate a serious dialogue.


    1. How to solicit the funding
    2. Registration of ofw
    3. Bank transfer
    4. Type of payment

    ANg lifetime na ibig sabihin dun is habangbuhay na haharapin ng bawat Pilipino ang armaments upgrade hanggat may threat.. hanggat may china na nam bubuly sa atin.

    For the sake of all OFW, do you believe that the strategic position of Philippines is more important in Asia, beside of our natural resources. The Philippines is the only country in Asia that so rounded by its territorial water. If you recall the speech of one of the famous President, during world war II he says when I look the eyes of my fellow compatriot and I saw the signed of defeat, its remind me how important that word to us, some of us always considered their self-inferiority. Never say that we the Filipinos can do something to our country, by the way Thanks to your latest comment we make this appeal to all of you with the bottom of our heart for us we don’t expect Ka abot in our endeavor. I collecting your constructive comment may be we can use to guide us and to protect what we are projecting.

    Our commitment is only limited and what amount we generate, I see to it that everything is in order; I know some of you have a right to doubt and you are in titled for that. I always pray that some of our fellow OFW will joint us this crusade to our motherland no other will help us except our self only by combining simultaneously. God bless us

    If you are agreeing we can open OFW account in any Custodian bank with same signatories we have three banking in the Philippines, HSBC, Citibank and Standard Chartered bank. Beside we can use the escrow account this is the type of account used to negotiate to any transaction we entered. Now I need any suggestion regarding the opening of $ account, in my point of view I want any transaction must be transparent to avoid any doubt.

    By the way this escrow account is international we can open it even in America or Europe but we can‘t monitored, our transaction and I try to negotiate with this local bank if the can arrange the same what this escrow account offered.


    Escrow account – transaction between the buyer and manufacturers.
    Custodian bank – HSBC, Citibank, Standard Chartered bank
    Account: OFW Signatures

    The account should open in the Philippines lets say this way, when open the account only open and after opening the bank will not allow to disburse any amount and soon after the amount is enough for the disbursement to procure armament the account holder will notify all the contributors and sign a waiver for disbursing the amount however, this would be transparent notice to all donators must be updated and donators must have the email address of the person for checking the amount time to time.

    Perfect comment... Its good. I agree... Please identify yourself and send email to defend@phrepublic.info

    We need this very constructive idea.. This is good and be one of the Signatory... We hope that anyone who has the link to the Manufacturer and the AFP to act as liaison about this because we could not do it without the support of the Philippines Government...

    The Account must be transparent... I agree with that.. We will allow the media to see the flow of incoming of the account.

    We will never expect any outgoing flow except for the minimum tax that they will impose it the account will start gaining interest..


    This is a forever commitment... Support... Support.. Support..


    Wala pong sariling Gobyerno ang OFW. kung maka bili man tayo ng kagamitang pandigma.. ang Philippines Government naman ang mag maintain nito... kasi we will turnover the asset to them..

    Thanks for a very wonderful idea. ang problem now is sino, sino ang gustong maging signatory ng account.. hands up!!!!! Join ako para maka pag donate na rin kahit pakunti kunti every month...

    hindi na masakit sa bulta ko kahit $200 USD every month...

    I’m encourage to post this site but we are not the same entity what other claim we are trying to help, to our arm forces but I am very careful since the money that we are contributing are came from our sweat and hard earning.

    When everything is in order, but for the meantime you can post your suggestion as it’s. I need your comment that how we work, they more people are participating we have chance of good result. Regarding on what equipment we can share, first we consolidate our resources and then we can star to select remember the equipment we cannot buy in the market it done by negation, what I mean thru government.

    Since our government, they are starting negotiating with the responsible agency. We will discus to them the willingness of OFW to share the need of our arms forces. I always layout everything to show how we move, if you agree I will open and account in the name of OFW and in form of dollar in any of the three particular bank.

    Gentlemen regarding military hardware on how to procure, bidding is required only for diesel and lubricants and only Foreign Sec. and DND are representative of Philippines government allowed to negotiate. As of now, our government are acquiring from South Korea TA-50 Golden Eagle and M-346 Master Alenia Aermacchi from Italy. The Philippines are acquiring 10 brand new patrol vessels from Japan.

    Regarding priority of our arms forces, I have the list of hardware our government negotiating, like TA-50 golden eagle, M-346 Master, F/A-50 for the Philippines Airforce.
    Our arms forces need up to (4) squadron (48) fighter jets and for the Navy they needs 12 corvettes, 18 offshore patrol vessels, 3 submarine for undersea defense and 3 mine countermeasure vessels. The list also includes 4 strategic sealift vessels, 18 landing craft, 3 logistics support ships, 6 tugboats, 12 coastal patrol vessels, 30 patrol gunboats, 42 multi-purpose assault craft, 24 rigid-hull inflatable boats, 8 amphibious maritime patrol aircraft, 18 naval helicopters, and 8 multi-purpose helicopters.

    All of this list of hardware are priority, regarding on how to negotiate that defend on us if our recourses are available we can contact this two department for the OFW willingness to shared the needs of our arms forces. (Be apart of it GOD will guide us)

    This brainchild of an idea about personal donations to help the AFP modernize has come just in time. When I immigrated to the US mmany years ago, I kept thinking on how best to help the native land. Maybe, pooling money to help fund modern weaponry to fight and combat foreign imperialists from patriotic Filipinos and freedom loving citizens of the world is one of the best ideas whose time has come. But in order for this to materialize, a lot of things must be seriosly considered and properly addresssed,e.g., 1. ID of responsible entity which will be the caretaker of the funds. This entity should be morally upright, transparent and acceptable to all parties concerned. At this point in time, nobody comes across my mind except the Roman Catholic Church of the Phil. 2. Donations to the escrow account need not be limited to our OFW heroes but to all freedom loving people of the world. Remember, this is a fight to preserve democracy and stop the unparalled appetite of Red China to dominate the world. 3. A monthly report to be published in a Phil. based newspaper re: current balance of the escrow acct. 4. A system Of checks and balamces to be establised to prevent potential corruption from taking place. 4. List of war materiel, weapons system, armament and/or fighting equipment which the escrow acct. would like to fund and the $ amounts involved. There are always potential donors who would lke to accelerate the procurement, hence, they might wish to donate more in order to make it happen. 5. Counterpart funding from he Philippine Government. 6. Concrete proof of Philippine Senate and Congress commitment to allocate sufficient funds to meet the Phiippines' national defense needs. 7. Resolve the CPP-NPA problem once and for all. 8. Perhaps, AFP should recruit among the experienced ranks of the CPP-NPA foot soldiers as well as from the MILF, etc. to buttress its ranks.

    I am almost certain that if and when we start on this fund campaign, we will hear a lot of negative remarks from other people of the world, but we should maintain the course. We should not be dismayed. We should not be disappointed. We should persevere and determine. Once we embark on this , walang atrasan. For after all, this fight is not only for the Filipinos but for the entire free world. Salamat po at harinawa ay magtagumpay tayong lahat.

    I hope we hear appropriate comments from all parties concerned, esp. from the Roman Catholic Church of the Phil., Phil. Congress, Phil. Senate, AFP and Malacanang re: this campaign. We all love the Philippines. The sooner we act, the better for the AFP. We are not promising miracles, but are aiming for one.
    Regards to all OFWs. You are the Philippines new breed of HEROES. Mabuhay kayo!

    kailangan iprioritize muna ntin ang air assets ntin, mas importante ang Multirole Fighter Jets kaysa Submarines at Battle Ships, kung wala tayo nun open for bombing ang pilipinas, at isang araw lng ubos lhat ng mga resources ntin at tapos ang gera, kailangan ntin ng mga interceptor fighter jets. maganda bumili tayo ng GripenE NG Multirole Fighter Jets at Embraer 145 AEW&C Airborne Early Warning And Control Plane. dapat ifocus ng government natin ang budget sa mga ito. dapat noon pa tyo naginvest s mga ito kahit wla tayong kalitan sa ibang mga bansa, eh di sana ngayn ready tayo at hindi mukhang kawawa. maxado kasi tayong komportable at tayo-tayo ang nagkakagatan at sinamantala naman ng mga corrupt opsyal ntin. sana naman natuto na tayo ngayn. at ngayon kailangan nting humabol sa air power natin para hindi na tayo daan-daan lng ng chinese fighter jets sa loob ng territory natin.

  96. THE JEWS SHOULD BE FIGHTING FOR A LAND THAT PROMISED FROM ABRAHAM........
    In fact they are stronger than Arabs in the past 65 years.......If Israel is weaker...then they are under Arab control now.
    Remember the SIX-DAY war??!THEY beat Soviet Technology in Just Six Days and expanded their territory up to 200 percent!!!! Much Bigger than King David's United Israel a thousand years ago!!!!
    So don't insult Jews or They'll throw you the NOAH'S ARK onto your faces......Blasphemers!!!!!!

  97. Thanks for the news. Meantime here you can have a look at some great F-35 photos:

    Well thank you my fellow OFW for the regards that you'd been expressed to the country. In my view, Philippines should not be tempted to buy all those junks from the foreign countries. Why? Name all the wars in the history? It's all about killings, devastation, and destruction of earth living things. Who appeared victorious?, even the great roman empire had collapsed. So, shall we let history repeat itself?
    The idea of acquiring those conventional war machines would be obsolete in compare to the future warfare using advance computerize technology, stealthy fighting armaments, and unmanned attack equipment. To be certain, Philippines has the potential to built its own nuclear powered aircraft carrier and submarines and stealth fighter aircraft/bomber. Deuterium for rocket/missile fuel have a huge deposit in the Philippines.
