Philippine Navy To Ink Submarine Rescue Deal With Strategic Partners


The Philippine Navy in its pursuit to have its own submarine fleet has said agreements with the country’s strategic partners will be signed with respect to rescue and assistance once construction of the PN’s firs-ever submarines is underway.

“It is planned that as soon as the Philippine submarines are being constructed, agreements will be negotiated with countries which have the capability for submarine rescue,” said PN chief, Vice Adm. Giovanni Carlo Bacordo.

The PN added that these agreements are not new as most submarine operating countries do not have a “distinct and independent rescue capability but rely on their strategic partners for assistance during distress”.

“The ‘submarine community’ composed of different nations have a strong bond, mutual respect, and common understanding to help each other in times of crisis,” he said.

 While its ideal to have a submarine rescue capability, financial constraints limits the capability of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) as an organization.

“Submarine rescue capability is not yet included in the submarine warfare capability development of the PN,” he added.

It was explained that the PN having its own diesel-electric submarines in its inventory will allow the AFP to achieve a credible defense posture.

“We have desired force mix of submarines, frigates, corvettes, OPVs (offshore patrol vessels), LDs (landing docks), FAIC-Ms (fast attack interdiction craft-missiles), MPACs (multi-purpose attack craft), AAVs (amphibious assault vehicles) etc. This is embodied in our Naval Operating Concept submitted to HHQ (higher headquarters) in 2020,” he added.



Importance of Submarines in the country



A submarine warfare capability will better equip the PN to fulfill its primary update on territorial defense, security and stability.


“Submarines will enhance our maritime defense capability and can effectively carry out anti-access/area denial, maritime surveillance, maritime interdiction, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. The submarine is the most effective ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) platform and the best killing machine in the Navy inventory,” he added.


“Submarines are undetectable and could be anywhere patrolling around the WPS (West Philippine Sea) to act firmly if necessary. Having an operational submarine at-sea will be a game-changer for the PN. Contenders will have to take into consideration the probability of facing a submarine at anytime, anywhere, without any warning, hence will affect their entire assessment of the tactical situation and their behavior,” he further explain.

These submarines will be equipped with a large number of weapons.

“It can infiltrate an enemy task force to hunt aircraft carriers and landing docks, and provide decisive superiority with a single lethal hit,” he added.
