PH Navy buying more ships


The modernization of the Philippine Navy (PN) will never stop.


It has just been announced that the PN would be acquiring at least 19 brand new naval ships and would also likely to get three used navy vessels over the next few years to boost its aging and fledgling fleet, which is considered as one of the weakest in Asia.


The Department of National Defense (DND) is also expecting to sign contracts for two landing docks and six offshore patrol vessels costing an estimated P35million.

An Indonesian shipbuilder has been chosen to supply the two landing docks, or landing platforms, for the Navy for P5.56 billion, according to a June 5 notice of award from the DND to PT Pal Persero. The contract is expected to be signed in the coming days or weeks.


The Navy has been trying to acquire the landing docks since 2019 but previous biddings failed for various reasons.

These ships would be used by the Navy for its amphibious landing missions and transport tasks.


They are expected to be improved versions of the Navy’s two Tarlac-class strategic sealift vessels—the BRP Tarlac (LD-601) and BRP Davao del Sur (LD-602)—which were also built by PT Pal Persero.
