ADEX 2017: Lockheed Martin drops Viking offer to South Korea

Gareth Jennings - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
18 October 2017

Lockheed Martin will no longer offer refurbished S-3 Viking anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft to South Korea, saying that budgetary pressures and the increased underwater threat posed by Pyonyang meant the platform was no longer appropriate for the requirement.

Lockheed had hoped to sell surplus US Navy S-3B Viking ASW aircraft to South Korea, but budgetary pressures and an increase in the North Korean submarine threat have caused the company to withdraw the offer. (US Navy)

Speaking on 18 October at the Seoul International Aerospace and Defence Exhibition 2017, the company’s senior business development official in South Korea, John Balderston, said that plans exclusively revealed by Jane’s in 2013 to equip the Republic of Korea Navy (RoKN) with retired US Navy Viking aircraft were no longer compatible with either the service’s budgetary priorities or its enhanced ASW requirements, and as such the proposal had been withdrawn.

Leonardo is waiting on the South Korean government to issue requests for proposals (RFPs) for three key rotary-wing requirements and a contract decision on a fourth as it looks to expand its presence in the country.

The Republic of Korea Navy has already received eight Lynx Wildcat helicopters, and the type is to be submitted for a potential follow-on contract for 12 more. (Republic of Korea Navy)

Speaking to Jane’s at the Seoul International Aerospace and Defence Exhibition (ADEX) 2017 being held on the outskirts of the South Korean capital, Leonardo officials said that RFPs are expected for a further batch of maritime anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopters under the MRH programme, for a counter-mine helicopter under the Airborne Mine Counter-Measures (AMCM) programme, and for a Lynx Mk99 upgrade effort. Further to these three pending requirements, the company is expecting a contract decision on the THX helicopter trainer requirement for which it has been shortlisted.

Vintage Navy ships taken off the shelf
By: Victor Reyes

Malaya, Friday, December 10, 2010

http://navytoday.blogspot.com/2010/12/vintage-navy-ships-taken-off-shelf.html

THE Navy yesterday decommissioned three vintage ships.

It is coordinating with the donors of the two patrol ships and a patrol gunboat prior to selling these as scrap metal.

< Edited >

"If we needed spares, we just goet them from these (now decommissioned ships)," said Capt. Giovanni Carlo Bacordo, Navy spokesman.

"They are beyond economic repair. It will entail a lot of cost if they are going to be revived so we preferred to remove them from the inventory of the Philippine Navy," said Bacordo.

< Edited >

He said the two patrol ships, PS 29 or BRP Negros Occidental and PS 23 or BRP Datu Marikudo, were donated by the US after the World War II and are 67 years old.
