The Philippine Navy is spending P158.2M to dry-dock two WWII-era Patrol Ship: BRP Magat Salamat (PS-20), which was laid down in 1943 and BRP Sultan Kudarat (PS-22), which was laid down in 1942.

Talking about . . . ROI.

In a related development, one of five remaining PCEs/Admirable Patrol ships actually had an earlier drydocking / maintenance bid.

BRP Pangasinan (PS 31)'s bid actually underwent two failed open biddings already, thus a negotiated bid was the latest option.
Obsolete weapons do not deter. You do not base a defence policy on someone else's good intentions.
