Amphibious vehicles to boost Marines’ sea capabilities
By Priam Nepomuceno  November 5, 2018, 3:41 pm

MANILA -- Having amphibious assault vehicles (AAVs) in the Philippine Marine Corps (PMC) inventory will further boost its "limited sea basing" capability, Navy spokesperson Commander Jonathan Zata said Sunday.

AAVs will allow PMC units to embark in any of the two strategic sealift vessels, the BRP Tarlac (LD-601) and BRP Davao Del Sur (LD-602), if needed, he added.

"The PMC is essentially an amphibious ready force and part of our doctrine is that they can be embarked in our landing docks. Part of the doctrine is the so-called 'limited sea basing', which means that a battalion of Marines is always on board, at any one time, ready for any possible exigencies," Zata said in Filipino.

And once the AAVs are delivered to the PMC, this doctrine will be beefed up further as this will give the PMC more assets to do amphibious landing.

The PMC is slated to undertake delivery of eight Hanwha Techwin AAVs later this year or early 2019.

Contract for the vehicles is placed at PHP2.42 billion.

Some Marine troopers are now in South Korea, undergoing training to handle these AAVs. (PNA)

PH Navy to receive 2 anti-sub helis, 4 AAVs in March
By Priam Nepomuceno January 9, 2019, 10:44 am

MANILA -- The Philippine Navy (PN) is expected to receive in March its first two anti-submarine helicopters and four out of eight amphibious assault vehicles it has ordered for the Marine Corps.

This was disclosed by PN flag-officer-in-command Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad during a chance interview shortly after the New Year's Call at the AFP Commissioned Officers' Club in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City Tuesday.

"(Aside from the two anti-submarine) helicopters, 'yung (the) amphibious assault vehicles (AAVs) ng (of the) Marines. Eight yun (order) pero four ang darating ngayong (but four of them will arrive in) March. Maganda 'yung capability nun (It has good capability)," he added.

Empedrad was referring to the AgustaWestland AW-159 "Wildcat" anti-submarine helicopter, which the PN has contracted for two units worth PHP5.4 billion, including weapons, mission essential equipment and integrated logistic support and the eight AAVs acquired from Hanwha Techwin for PHP2.42 billion.

The anti-submarine helicopters will give the PN the capability to detect and neutralize underwater threats while the AAVs will boosts the Marine Corps sea-based capability.

Also, Empedrad said that personnel expected to man the "Pohang"-class corvette donated by South Korea are expected to depart within this month and start training on the above-mentioned ship, with the intention of sailing it home within the soonest possible time. (PNA)

First batch of assault vehicles for Philippine Marine Corps arrives home
Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - Jane's Defence Weekly
10 May 2019

The first batch of four Korean amphibious assault vehicles (KAAVs) procured for the Philippine Marine Corps has arrived in-country, a source from within the Philippine Navy confirmed with Jane’s on 10 May.

The vehicles arrived just days after the Philippine Marine Corps conducted an ‘activation ceremony’ for its Amphibious Assault Vehicle Company, which was formally stood up on 25 April, said the source.

The vehicles that have arrived in the Philippines are part of a PHP2.42 billion (USD46 million) contract that was signed between the Philippine government and South Korean defence firm Hanwha Techwin in April 2016.
