PH Army Artillery Regiment celebrates anniv, display Multi-Launch Rocket System (MLRS)s




The Armed Forces of the Philippines’ Philippine Army’s Artillery Regiment’s (AAR) just celebrated their 13th Founding Anniversary at Fort Ramon Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija last June 17.
The said regiment of the Philippine Army just recently activated units for upcoming and highly anticipated new equipment like Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS), Land Based Missile System, Air Defense Artillery, and Field Artillery.

“As former CGPA and Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Gen. Eduardo Año once said, ‘Filipinos are considered as one of the best fighters in the world because we have the values and resolve,’ kahit parating pa lang ang mga kagamitan, parang sinasabi ni General Año na tayo ay panalo na sa laban. At yan ay makikita natin sa mga cañoneros,” Army chief Lieutenant General Gilbert I. Gapay said for the occasion.

“Sa mga sundalo at kawani ng AAR, panatilihin natin ang kagalingan at propersyonalismo sa pagganap ng tungkulin. Pagtibayin pa ninyo ang mga inisyatiba tungo sa pagiging isang modernong artilyero. Ang Headquarters of the Philippine Army ay laging nakasuporta sa mga adhikaing ito,” Lieutenant General Gapay said.
