Good News!:DBM releases initial fund for the Corvette Acquisition Project of the PH Navy.


Good News for the Philippine Navy (PN).

The Department of Budget Management (DBM) has finally released a SARO to support the funding for the initial 15% downpayment of the Corvette Acquisition Project of the Philippine Navy (PN).

The amount worth Php3.75 billion is 15% of the Php25 billion corvettes.


South Korea HHI's HDC-3100 design, is expected to win the bid for the PN's corvette project

While the project's budget is Php28 billion, take note than the Php3 billion will be used to acquire munitions (missiles, torpedoes, etc) for the 2 ships.


With the SARO releasee, the DND may start awarding the project and sign contract with the winning shipbuilder, which is expected to be South Korea's Hyundai Heavy Industries(HHI).


HHI was said to have offered its HDC-3100 design, which is in fact slightly larger than the Jose Rizal-class frigates that were based on HHI's HDF-2600 design.


HHI’s HDC-3100 design


According to a previous post in MaxDefense FB Page the said design is:


-the length is 114m, width is 14.8m, and draft is 3.8m, with maximum speed of 25 knots. This makes it longer and wider than Jose Rizal-class frigates, but with the same speed which could mean the use of diesel engine propulsion only, no gas turbines.


HDC-3100 is an indication that it is a Corvette design (C in HDC), with a displacement of around 3,100 tons.


Based on CGI, the design is almost very similar to the HDF-2600, which is the baseline design of the Jose Rizal-class frigate of the Philippine Navy.


Differences noted on the HDC-3100 compared to HDF-2600 include:


* longer forward section

* larger space for more VLS launchers

* additional superstructure cover wall on mid-section for improved radar cross section reduction

* bigger space behind the funnel for more anti-ship missile launchers

The VLS on CGI shows 16 cells of what appears to be MBDA VL-MICA launchers, while space appears to be available for more VLS launchers.


The wall covering in the superstructure mid-section was what MaxDefense PH previously mentioned as something HHI can improve on the Jose Rizal-class design, although there is still an open gap forward of the funnel.


Access for davit-mounted RHIBs will be using a retractable access gate similar to most modern warship designs.


Also noted were increased number of countermeasure launchers, looks like Terma C-Guard similar to what PN uses on Jose Rizal-class frigates.


Another is the use of Hensoldt TRS-4D AESA radar which is a more advanced version of the TRS-3D used in the Jose Rizal-class frigates.
