The Philippine Navy (PN) held a tour of the brand new frigate BRP Jose Rizal with the members of the Defense Press Corps (DPC) followed by a press conference with the Navy chief and other PN senior officers earlier today, October 19.

This event aimed to showcase to the public, through the press, the aesthetics and advanced capabilities of FF150 that serves as a tangible manifestation of the PN's steady transformation and modernization to better serve the Filipino people.

To strictly observe health and safety protocols amid the ongoing pandemic, only select DPC members were allowed to board and tour the ship, while others participated in the press briefing virtually via Zoom application.

This hybrid of virtual and physical event also aimed to reaffirm PN's partnership with the DPC who have been instrumental on the Navy's efforts of building and promoting a reputation worthy of trust and confidence.

Delivery of primary weapons for Navy frigates set for 2021, 2022

MANILA The Philippine Navy (PN) said Wednesday the surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles of BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150) and BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151) are scheduled for delivery in October next year and the first quarter of 2022, respectively.

"(Deliveries for) the surface-to-air missile is (on) October 2021 and March 2022 for the surface-to-surface missile," Navy public affairs office chief, Lt. Commander Maria Christina Roxas, said in a message to the Philippine News Agency (PNA) when sought for updates on the acquisition of primary weapons of the two guided-missile frigates.

Roxas said the surface-to-surface missile project is under "Frigate Acquisition Lot 2A" and that South Korean defense manufacturer LIG Nex 1 would deliver C-Star missiles.

The C-Star is described as a "sea-skimming surface-to-surface anti-ship cruise missile".

Meanwhile, the surface-to-air missile project is under "Frigate Acquisition Lot 2B" and was awarded to MBDA, France, which would deliver a quantity of Mistral 3 anti-aircraft missiles.

The BRP Jose Rizal and BRP Antonio Luna are modern warships capable of surface, sub-surface, air, and electronic warfare using state-of-the-art electronic sensors, long-range missiles, acoustic guided torpedoes, and an embarked anti-submarine helicopter.

The BRP Jose Rizal was delivered to the Philippines in May and commissioned last July, while the BRP Antonio Luna is expected to be delivered to the PN by February next year.

The contract for the two ships was placed at PHP16 billion with another PHP2 billion for weapon systems and munitions. (PNA)
