French submarine company in contact with PH for its submarine project


It looks like the dream pf the Philippines to have its own submarine for the Philippine Navy(PN) is still very much alive.

Pierre-Eric Pommellet chief executive officer of the French defense contractor Naval Group said during the Euronaval 2020 that they have been in contact with Philippine authorities for submarine.

“Another country were we’ve been very active during the [Covid] crisis is the Philippines. The Philippines is looking for submarines to increase their naval capacities and create a new submarine force,” Pommellet said as quoted by

“We’ve kept in close touch with the Philippines authorities during the crisis. We’ll see in the next weeks if this project moves forward. But of course, here again, Naval Group can demonstrate –we’ve done it in Brazil, in India, we’re doing it in Australia– the capacity to transfer production,” he added.

According to Naval Group, “Scorpene submarine is capable of carrying out all types of missions, such as anti-surface vessel warfare, anti-submarine warfare, long-range strikes, special operations or intelligence gathering. It is extremely stealthy and fast, and is equipped with a comprehensive range of weapons (torpedoes, missiles, mines).”

“Over fourteen Scorpene submarines were sold by Naval Group internationally. Naval Group is capable of adapting it to very specifics operational and industrial requirements, creating long term partnership of trust with navies throughout the life of the submarine, covering the whole spectrum of development and industrial sovereignty of each country and a user club that joins them under common interests,” it added.
