PH looking at acquiring a second Pohang-class Anti-submarine corvette from South Korea


The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)under the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has seen a drastic boost of armament all for its continued modernization.


As reported a team of defense and military officers visited South Korea for a joint visual inspection of used rocket systems and a surplus warship that will be handed over by the Seoul government to thePhilippines.


The Philippine Army and the Philippine Marine Corps are the direct recipients of 22 Kooryong multiple launch rocket systems from the Korean Army. These would include equipment and ammunition. These were expected to be handed over to the Philippines in the next few months though this was first publicly announced in 2019.

South Korea has been major source of military equipment and hardware for the country- from military trucks to its most modern jet fighters the FA50’s. In the past year, Hyundai Heavy Industries delivered two Rizal-class frigates for the Philippine Navy worth P16 billion.

The donation of the decommissioned Pohang-class corvette ROKS Andong (PCC-771)  came ahead of an anticipated big-ticket procurement for a pair of brand new corvettes from South Korea’s HHI for P28 billion—a plan that has been announced since 2019 but it faced setbacks due to budgetary constraints and the pandemic.

Should the transfer be successful, it would be the second Pohang-class corvette in the PN, after the former Flight III ship ROKS Chungju (PCC-762), now known as the BRP Conrado Yap (PS-39).
