PH Army acquires 50 troop carriers




Good news for the Hukbong Katihan ng Pilipinas (Philippine Army).

The Philippine Army (PA) has acquired 50 units of KM250 troop carriers under the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program
(RAFPMP).


The delivery pushed through despite the problems being experienced by the country brought about by the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.
And as a matter of tradition, a simple blessing ceremony was held at the Headquarters Philippine Army Grandstand, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City today, May 19, 2020.

Keynote speaker of the event was Army chief Lieutenant General Gilbert I. Gapay.

Gapay said the delivery of the troop carriers will augment the Army’s existing mobility assets and were temporarily issued to the Army Support Command (ASCOM) to further increase its mobility readiness and to be utilized in the operations against the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

“KM250s, along with their other counterparts, have become synonymous to the Army’s sustainment operations. These 2 ½ ton-workhorses are all over the country – in Internal Security Operations, development efforts, reliefs, partnerships, and now in our pandemic operations. Let us take care of our vehicles, and keep them always on top working condition. As more transports enable us to become more mobile, we ensure that our service keeps rolling smoothly,” Lieutenant General Gapay said.
