Fast missile boats seen to complement PH Navy’s attack craft


The Philippine Navy (PN) is making the next move in beefing up its military hardware which will be primarily used to the security of the country’s coastal waters and maritime territories.

"This acquisition aims to strengthen the country's naval capability in terms of enhancing littoral defense and maritime interdiction operations as it will complement the previously acquired 12 MPAC of the PN," Navy spokesperson Commander Benjo Negranza said.

Three (#of the MPACs are armed with the Rafael Advanced Defense Ltd. Spike-ER (extended range) surface-to-surface missile system while three more are scheduled to be installed with the same weapon system.

Negranza said the acquisition of eight units of FAIC-M is among the 2019 projects approved by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte under the Horizon 2 List of the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program.

"The first two units of the FAIC-M (are) estimated to arrive in-country around the last quarter of 2022," he said.

The FAIC-M project was awarded to Israel Shipyards Ltd. and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems of Israel under a government-to-government procurement scheme and is divided into two lots.

"Lot 1 covers the delivery of nine platforms, four of which will be missile-capable, and the upgrading of the Naval Shipyard (NSY) for the establishment of a local production line as part of the Transfer of Technology (ToT). On the other hand, Lot 2 includes the integration of weapons and combat systems," Negranza said.

When the deliveries are completed it is expected that these vessels can interdict surface threats and launch non-line-of-sight missiles safely using the surrounding littoral areas as maneuver space and cover.
