The Philippine Navy (PN) is never stopping in its plan to modernize its surface assets for the defense of the country.

PN announced that arrival of new patrol assets will greatly enhance its patrol capabilities and prevent terrorists and other criminals from sneaking in.

According to PN chief Vice Admiral Giovanni Carlo Bacordo, “this situation will be best addressed through the modernization of our assets that we are now continuously pursuing, particularly the acquisition of the Philippine Fleet’s Fast Attack Interdiction Craft (FAIC) project and the Philippine Marine Corps’ Combat Raid and Interdiction Boats as well as its Small Unit Riverine Craft (SURC).”

Bacordo explains the importance of such naval assets as it fills the role of the dynamics of maritime terrorists and transnational criminals and capacitate the Navy to secure and defend the country’s maritime territories and jurisdiction and promote coastal peace and order.

These are expected to be delivered within the next two years as in the case of the Fast Attack Interdiction Craft (FAIC).

“Through the upbeat support of the Filipino people, through the government, to the modernization efforts of the whole of the Armed Forces, the Philippine Navy is now in the process of acquiring more capable surface assets to interdict pirates and other lawless elements, and become more responsive to the ever-changing security threats to the Philippines’ vast maritime environment,” the PN chief added.
