MANILA, June 2 -- The Philippine Marine Corps (PMC) will get additional anti-terror equipment from the United States government on Monday.

A turnover ceremony will take place at the Marine Barracks Rudiardo Brown in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City at 10 a.m. on June 5, PMC spokesperson Capt. Ryan Lacuesta said Friday.

"The United States Government will formally hand over various equipment to the PMC. These equipment will further enhance the capabilities of the PMC counter-terrorism units in addressing different threats posed by different terrorists and other groups," he added.

Equipment to be turned over to the PMC include 300 M-4 carbines, 200 Glock 21 pistols, 25 units of combat rubber raiding craft, 100 M-203 rail mounted grenade launchers, 30 outboard motors, and four M-134D Gatling-style machine guns. (PFN/PNA)

The weapons and equipment donated by the US include 300 M4 carbines, 200 Glock 21 pistols, 4 M134D Gatling-style machine guns, and 100 M203 grenade launchers, as part of the US government’s Counterterrorism Train and Equipment Program.

Twenty-five new combat rubber raiding craft with outboard motors were also delivered earlier.

Marines chief Maj. Gen. Emmanuel Salamat said some of these donated equipment will be used by the troops operating in Marawi City.

The AFP has also availed of the US government’s Foreign Military Sales system and other programs by procuring small arms weapons, water craft, unmanned aerial vehicles and personal protective equipment. Frances .
