Navy buying more new ships
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine Navy would be acquiring at least 19 brand-new ships and likely get three used vessels over the next few years to boost its aging and fledgling fleet, which is one of the weakest in Asia. Aside from 11 new ships already scheduled for delivery, the Department of National Defense (DND) is expected to soon sign contracts for two landing docks and six offshore patrol vessels costing an estimated P35 billion. The Navy is looking at the secondhand vessels while waiting for these new ships.
