PH Navy plans to acquire BrahMos cruise missile system from India

The Armed Forces of the Philippines modernization is still at full throttle despite the pandemic brought about by the coronavirus from Wuhan, China.

The Philippine Navy (PN) like its counterpart the Philippine Army (PA) has its sights in acquiring the much needed BrahMos cruise missile system.

Popular and reliable MaxDefense Philippines website has reported that the Philippine Navy under Shore-based Anti-ship Missile System Acquisition Project, is planning to acquire 3 batteries.

It was reported that the Philippine Army (PA) under it own Land-based Missile System Acquisition Project, would like to acquire 2 batteries.

Last year, December Department of National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana was quoted in saying that a contract for Army’s BrahMos could possibly be signed first half of 2020.

The only problem is that with the unplanned pandemic brought about by the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19, it is feared that many AFP projects slated to be signed might be shelved since budget would be aligned for the country’s battle against the unseen infectious disease.

“The Philippine Army is interested in acquiring this type of missile as it will strengthen our coastal defense operations,” the Philippine Army said in October 2019.
