Well the sh*t-pile always rolls downhill once enough crap is added on top of it. LoL @ "We deserve better" Pinoys on the OCU Block 15 Falcons in freakin' 1995. Those would have been almost backlot fresh by that time.

The question is.. is the HANWA system really bad?

Define 'bad'.

If you mean "will NS fail to serve as a reliable, effective CMS?" then lolol no, it's not bad.
If you mean "does NS fail to live up to the expectations of wannabe SME?", well...
there's a reason I've held back posting: too stressful and ultimately pointless.

I feel you h, I feel you.

It's hard battling the wave of copycat wannabe SMEs deriding the CMS when they don't even understand what they're fighting for...

Pardon my ignorance, sir Ma..

whats the difference between Strike Length and shorter variants of Mk 41 VLS?

How many missiles can be installed on each cell for strike length and shorter variants?

does the K-VLS compatible with any SAM system susch Sea Barak 8 or Sea Specter or Mica?

The Mk.41 variants and the missiles they can accommodate are as follows:

Strike length
-SM-2 Blk IV/SM-3
-everything Tactical and Self-Defense length variants can carry

Tactical length
-SM-2 Blk II, III
-Aster 30
-everything the Self-Defense variant can carry

Self-Defense length
-RIM-7 Sea Sparrow
-Quad-packed ESSM
-Aster 15

So you can see, there are multiple Mk41 variants with different capabilities. 8 cell installations are usually either Self-Defense or in some occassions, Tactical length cells. The main difference between all 3 is the height of the reload canisters they can accommodate. Strike cells can handle large missiles like the Tomahawk.

Reportedly HHI has contracted for the TRS-3D / AN/SPS-75 radar for air and surface search on the new frigates. The radar has been subject of much derision that stems from a lack of understanding on the system. It is actually deployed on multiple front-line vessels of large capable navies, including:

US Navy (LCS flight I)
US Coast Guard (National Security Cutters)
German Navy (F122 frigates and K130 corvettes)
Royal Danish Navy (StanFlex patrol boats and Niels Juel corvettes)
Spanish Navy
Norwegian Navy

Another widely used system for our frigates, end-users count among them:

UK Royal Navy
Royal Thai Navy
Royal Malaysian Navy

The launchers are unique in that they allow for multiple NATO standard torpedos to be used, and even allows and can be easily configured to launch the US Mk 44, Mk 46 and Mk 54 torpedoes (subject to consent), plus UK Sting Ray and Italian A244S.

New gun system but already on the ships of the following users:

Turkish Navy
Croatian Coast Guard
Royal Malaysian Navy

Kelvin Huges Sharpeye is on a LOT of naval vessels, notable users include:

UK Royal Navy(60+ sets)
US Navy
Republic of Singapore Navy
Royal Malaysian Navy
New Zealand Navy
and a whole host of other navies.

So does that imply the Haesong ASM? Or is the Harpoon an option as well?

It depends. If it's a Mk.41 VLS that gets installed, we need to ask if it's a Strike-length VLS or the shorter variants that accommodate only SAMs.

Arguably, K-VLS would give us a supply that so far has proven they do not care about typical western sensibilities like human rights or other similar issues we now face from traditional suppliers.

Meanwhile, in an alternate reality, people are calling the frigates "glorified OPVs"... right... OPVs that are carrying 8 SSMs, triple torpedo tubes, radars used on front-line ships in other navies, space for an 8-cell VLS, and hangar space for one of the best sub hunting helicopters in the business.

LOL, sign me up for more of these "OPVs"!

What's interesting in the RFI/RFQ of the US NavSea is the specification for an X-band and S-band radar.

Had the Navy specified a band for their ships' radar systems, they would have gotten a minimum of an S-band radar as their main air and sea radar.

French gov’t ready to aid PH navy requirements

The French government has a lot to propose to the Philippines when it comes to ensuring the needs of the country’s navy are met.

This was pointed out by French Ambassador to Manila Nicolas Galey in an interview onboard the Vendemiaire, a Floreal class French surveillance frigate on a goodwill visit to the Philippines from March 12 to 16.

“A country like the Philippines with so many islands and so many waters to control and preserve needs a navy or ships, in this field we have a lot to propose to the Philippines,” Ambassador Galey said.

Quickly stressing that France does not sell defense equipment, the top French diplomat in the country noted that what they are offering will give the country the capabilities to “build its own at the second stage.”

“We will propose…the training, maintenance, construction,” he said. “It’s a very specific approach that we have and that was successful in many parts of the world, including in Southeast Asia.”

< Edited >

It looks like the French have just made things VERY interesting. They are essentially offering establishing a local capability to build and maintain our own naval ships... but ensuring our technology base is firmly based on French technology means any steps moving forwards for the Navy will see them coming to the French for assistance and technology we may lack.

so where did the 14$million dollar figure came from?

From HHI themselves, passed unto the DND.

Wow! 10M RM preventive and restoration every year after the initial 4000hrs!?!

The Indians are notorious for undervaluing the job and then arguing for large cost overruns in the middle of the project. One need only look at majority of their national projects which have eneded either way over budget or cancelled because of runaway costs.

Could something as simple as a fence or sound wall on either side of the right-of-way help to provide security?  It probably wouldn't completely stop someone who really was determined to mess with the railway.  But it could help, in concert with other security measures.

It isn't just messing with the train itself.  It's also tampering with the tracks when no train is around and no one is looking, particularly in more isolated areas of the line.

The lines can be electrified and as mentioned in the FB posts. They would be a fault detection method as well.

But the fences are a good idea. Access control as well as protection from the elements would be factored in. The fenced off areas could also serve to house powerful CCTV to monitor stretches of the track ala NLEX/SLEX/SCTEX.

The armed marshalls would serve as a defensive force for passenger safety and protection.
