**Kalayaan Island (Spratly) / West Philippine Sea - AFP

  • Kailangan kaya darating yun APC from Israel. Puro press release lang ang AFP.

    Kung walang nagtatanong na mga tao o members ng media eh hindi naman siguro maglalabas ng paulit-ulit na press release ang AFP

    Ang sigurado ay may darating kasi may binili/inorder

    MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine Army will acquire 28 armored personnel carriers (APCs) from Israel to beef up its arsenal and avert deaths of soldiers during encounters with terrorists and other enemies of the state.

    The Army will also get 100 APCs donated by the US government.

    The acquisition of APCs from Israel is expected to boost the Army’s fighting capability and prevent another Mamasapano incident that resulted in the deaths of 44 police commandos.

    The Army is celebrating its founding anniversary today.

    The APCs or M113 are armed with the latest automated firing system. Instead of strafing, the APC would hit its target with a 99.9 percent accuracy with a single bullet.

    The APCs are also equipped with modern thermal sights and infrared equipment, which would enable the soldiers to engage enemies under the cover of complete darkness.

    The effectiveness of this weapon was showcased during the Zamboanga siege where tens, if not hundreds of lives of Filipino soldiers were saved, and the government avoided the carnage of civilian hostages.

    The purchase of the APCs was done through an arrangement between the Israel Ministry of Defense and Department of National Defense.

    The Elbit Systems Ltd. will supply the brand new APCs with an average kilometer reading of less than 1,000 kilometers.

    Since the APCs are equipped with remote-controlled weapon systems, the Army soldiers would be safely positioned inside the APCs and not exposed to enemy fire.

  • Teka lang ah medyo malabo yung sinabi mo ah. Kung tutuusin pagkatapos ng "na galing sa kanila" hindi mo na maiintindihan ang statement.

  • Philippine Army's 28 Upgraded M-113 AFV Expected to Arrive 2nd and 3rd Quarter this Year

    Quezon City, (Philippines)- A number of upgraded M-113 Armored Fighting Vehicles (AFV) intended for the Philippine Army (PA) will arrive May and July this year.

    PA spokesman Lt. Col. Noel Detoyato confirmed the report in a text message sent to State Run News Agency (PNA).

    "Eighteen will be delivered by May 11 and the remaining 10 will handed over (by the supplier) on July 11," he added.

    The M-113s will be supplied by Israeli defense manufacturer Elbit Systems Ltd. in a contract signed last June 22 with an allocated budget of Php882 million.

    Fourteen of the M-113s will be configured as fire support vehicles, four as infantry fighting vehicles, six as armored personnel carriers, another four as armored recovery units.

    Upgrades include installation of 25 mm unmanned turrets, 12.7 mm remote controlled weapon stations (RCWS) and fire control systems (FCS) for 90 mm turrets.

    see: Philippine Army's M113 stocks (24) to get major upgrade from Elbit Systems of Israel for $19.7m

    The PA operates around 343 AFVs (armored fighting vehicles) and APCs. Some 150 of these are the United Kingdom-built GKN "Simba" with the remaining AFVs consisting of US designed V-150 and V-200 APCs, M-113 "Bradley", Turkish made ACV-300s and British Scorpion CVRTs.

    Around 85 percent of these AFVs are on green status (fully mission capable) while another 10 percent are on yellow status (undergoing repair) and five percent are on red (beyond repair).

    These vehicles give the PA its armor capability and are organized into a 14-vehicle mechanized infantry companion for deployment with regular units.

    Meanwhile, Senators Chiz Escudero and JV Ejercito will be holding a Senate Inquiry regarding the report that DND diverted funds intended for transportation expenses for 114 units of second hand M-113A2 donated by United States to purchasing upgraded M-113 units from Israel.

    Department of National Defense (DND) declined to give comment on the issue and promised to clarify things out in the Senate Inquiry.

  • the m113 as an old design has its drawbacks. Vulnerable to anti tank missles and rpg's and IED's. Which is not a big problem sa pinas so OK lang
  • I'm sure they already thought about that when they redesigned it. Or the army can just reinforce it with sandbags just like what the GIs did with the Sherman in WW2.
