Philippine Air Force's Fighter Jets Arrive in Palawan for Joint Exercise

Antonio Bautista Air Base, Puerto Princesa City -- Three FA 50 fighter jets arrived and landed today on Puerto Princesa City to participate in the Armed Forces of the Philippines Joint Exercise (AJEX) dubbed as "Dagat, Langit, Lupa" or DAGIT PA 2018 which is being held in WESCOM's Joint Area of Operations and in Luzon Areas until 03 August 2018.

The said aircraft are participating in the Field Training Exercise (FTX) phase of the DAGIT PA 2018 which will be staged in the eastern part of Palawan.

The AJEX DAGIT PA 2018 started on 23 July 2018 with a Staff Exercise (STAFFEX) phase which was participated in by the key staff officers of Western Command led by their Commander, LtGen Rozzano D Briguez. This phase trained the participants on Contingency and Crisis Action Planning, and Command and Control of joint forces.

"We are thrilled to have our fighter jets joining the FTX phase of this year's AJEX in WESCOM's Area of Operations, along with our naval assets and ground troopers, because this will give us the opportunity to test our interoperability doctrine, jointness and readiness as One AFP," said LtGen Briguez.

"It is highly significant that our forces and assets train together in the spirit of jointness in order to enhance our ability to respond to any contingency in the future. This AJEX DAGIT PA provided us with such important training," he added.

The AJEX DAGIT-PA, on its 4th iteration this year, is a unilateral exercise that focuses on the development of the AFP's capacity on joint operations and enhancing interoperability of its forces from the Navy, Air Force and Army. The said exercise will also enhance the individual capacity of personnel and unit capabilities to enable them to be readily deployable to address contingencies in all mission areas. ###

Army participates in Joint Exercise DAGIT- PA 2018

FORT MAGSAYSAY, Nueva Ecija- The Philippine Army participates in the AFP Joint Exercise (AJEX) dubbed as Dagat, Langit at Lupa (DAGIT- PA) 2018 that officially kicked-off here, on August 1, 2018.

DAGIT-PA is the level up of the original Interoperability Exercise between the Philippine Air Force and the Philippine Navy, with the integration this year of Philippine Army and AFP Special Operation Forces. It is a unilateral exercise focusing on the development of the AFP capability on Joint Operations.

The Philippine Army’s participation is focused in the conduct of Command Post and Field Training activities that is anchored on Territorial Defense and Internal Security Operations as the exercise themes for this year.

The scenario that concerns Territorial Defense involves an escalating maritime security situation that would lead to crisis and conflict. In the process, the AFP will be required to apply its unilateral defense plan. The Army contingent plays a key role in the Airfield seizure and Military Operation in Urban Terrain (MOUT) as part of the scenario. Such scenario will be complemented by a counter-terrorism situation that developed in urban environment as drawn from the real world experience such as the recent Marawi conflict.

The exercise that is focused on Territorial Defense and Internal Security Operation aims to establish a common operational picture for all Army participating forces in order to effectively respond to any crisis like counter terrorism and armed conflict utilizing various support and capabilities.

Several Army units were involved in the exercise such as the Army Support Command with its Explosive and Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) units, Training and Doctrine Command, Mechanized Infantry Division, Fort Magsaysay Army Station Hospital, 500th Engineer Combat Battalion, K9 Battalion, Army Artillery Regiment, Army Signal Regiment, Civil Military Operation Regiment, and Army Aviation Battalion.

In addition, the 7th Infantry “Kaugnay” Division, aside from serving as host of the exercise also participated along with the AFP Special Operations Command with its Special Operation Forces component.

The Philippine Army generally promotes resilient, secured and peaceful Philippines to that effect with the current military capability upgrades that includes fire power, mobility assets, Command, Control, Communication and Cyber System equipment, as well as on training. The Army always put premium on training to achieve efficiency in the conduct of ground operations and to enhance personnel capacity as well as unit capabilities as part of joint and combined forces that will enable them to readily respond to address contingencies across the mission areas.

Philippine Army Commanding General, Lieutenant General Rolando Joselito D. Bautista appreciates the initiative and concept of the AFP in spearheading the Joint Exercise DAGIT-PA 2018. The activity will not only provide the Army personnel the necessary training and skills but also exposure on joint operations with other armed services which is essential amidst the current situation and operational setting.#
