Compare this with the list that the PN published in 2011

Lt. Commander Nerelito Martinez, Philippine Fleet acting chief of staff for plans and programs, revealed details about the Philippine Navy’s 15-year strategic development plan dubbed “Philippine Fleet Desired Force Mix”, in a recent Philippine Fleet publication. Several news organs, as the Philippine Star, have since referenced his article their articles on the subject.

The plan calls for the following mix of assets:

    Six (6) frigates configured for anti-air warfare
    Twelve (12) corvettes designed for anti-submarine warfare
    18 Offshore Patrol Vessels (OVs)
    Three (3) submarines
    Three (3) Mine Counter Measure Vessels (MCMVs)
    Four (4) Strategic Sealift Vessels (SSVs)
    18 Landing Craft Utility (LCU)
    Three (3) Logistics Support/Replenishment Ship (LSS)
    Three (3) Ocean tugs
    Six Yard/Fire Tugs
    12 Cyclone class Coast Patrol Interdiction Craft (CPIC),
    30 Patrol gunboats,
    42 Multi-Purpose Assault Craft (MPACs)
    24 Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIBs)
    Eight ( 8 ) Amphibious Maritime Patrol Aircraft (AMPA)
    18 Naval Helicopters embarked aboard frigates and corvettes
    Eight ( 8 ) Multi-Purpose Helicopters (MPH) [embarked aboard the SSVs]

Will there be any effect on the PNs H2 plans for their med range patrol aircraft requirements (3 units), with the forthcoming arrival of the TC90s?
