Thanks Adroth, I appreciate posting the bid docs.

Good to know it has passed the bidding committee. Hopefully the other bids for the ammo of 75 & 30mm would be awarded before the acceptance or delivery on Sep 2020, it shouldn't be that difficult anyways since we are already using it on the other assets.

Another concern is the VLS, how long it will take us to get it. Figure cross, hopefully sooner that later.

The VLS would basically be a defensive system. The SSM should be the priority.
Giving the ship an offensive capability would give the Philippine Navy muscle it does not currently have.
The PN needs weapons that can threaten capital ships.

The Korean VLS systems are supposed to also be able to launch SSM-700K SSMs. Am not counting Hyunmoo cruise missiles as we would probably not be allowed to purchase those anyway because of international missile control regulations.

Weapons variety comes from a 3rd VLS set of 48 aft-mounted “K-VLS” cells, a Korean system that holds locally-designed weapons like Hyunmoo cruise missiles, SSM-700K Haesung external link anti-ship missiles, Red Shark “K-ASROC” vertically launched rocket-assisted anti-submarine torpedoes, or other compatible weapons.

The official said the BRP Jose Rizal is now undergoing sea trials following its recent launching. The vessel has missiles and powerful radars and is armed with  high-rate firing Oto-Melara guns.

“It (the gun) is capable of intercepting air targets to include missile using special munitions,” Navy spokesman Capt. Jonathan Zata said.

We need more than two.

Two more frigates with each Horizon

how true is it that they increased budget request for each ship to Php14B? Does this mean that sensors and weapons will be markedly different from the JRC? Will this constitute a new class or just a "batch 2"

The racks for the SSM-700K are already installed and all that is lacking is the actual award for the SSMs themselves.

In the case of the VLS, I don't think PN has made any definitive choices, much less budget. I'll rather PN goes for a longer range system (e.g Barak 8 ). A SAM system in itself can become an offensive system by denying airspace to adversaries. The short range, point defense requirements are already met by the Mistral and the FFBNW gun CIWS. Another system with the same performance/range wouldn't make sense.

Would've been nice if the PN shared the whole recording. This screen capture shows the ship before the drydock was flooded

Notable points:

Time index 3:01: South Korean Blue Shark torpedoes for both the Jose Rizal class and the Wildcats

Time index 4:00: Wildcats will be inaugurated at June 17

Korean shipbuilder eyes April 2020 delivery of BRP Jose Rizal – Navy chief
By: Frances Mangosing - Reporter / @FMangosingINQ INQUIRER.net / 10:19 AM June 06, 2019

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Navy’s first missile-capable frigate, the future BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150), could be delivered by April 2020.

In an interview aired on ABS CBN News Channel on Wednesday night, Flag Officer in Command Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad said the Korean shipbuilder of the Philippine Navy frigates, Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), has intentions to deliver it months ahead of the previously announced target date September 2020.

< Edited >

The second frigate, BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151), is expected to be delivered by March 2021.

Empedrad said the BRP Jose Rizal will sail to Subic Bay on reaching the Philippines from South Korea. Navy personnel would be part of the crew but they would not be the ones to sail it to the Philippines.

“We will send our personnel there to train but based on the contract, the delivery of the ship is in Subic Bay. Ang mag-sail ng barko ay hindi Navy. We will have our crew as part of the sailing crew but they will not sail the ship back to the Philippines,” he said.

MANILA -- The Philippine Navy's (PN) second missile frigate, the BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151), will be formally launched in September.

"Our second frigate will be launched in September. By that time, the first frigate (BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150) will be finished (fitting its equipment)," said Navy flag-officer-in-command Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad during an interview with reporters at the PN headquarters at Naval Station Jose Andrada, Roxas Boulevard, Manila Wednesday.

The launching ceremonies will take place at the Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea.

The BRP Jose Rizal, the country's first missile frigate, was launched at the same facility last May 23.

The first missile frigate is expected to be delivered to the PN by April 2020 while the BRP Antonio Luna is scheduled for September of the same year.

The Philippines and HHI signed a PHP16-billion contract for two missile-armed frigates with another PHP2 billion set aside for its weapon systems and munition.

The steel-cutting for BRP Jose Rizal took place in April 1, 2018 while the same ceremony for BRP Antonio Luna transpired on November the same year. This event officially signified the start of the actual construction of the frigates.

Meanwhile, the keel-laying ceremony for BRP Jose Rizal took place in October 2018 as the formal recognition of the start of the ship’s construction.

Keel-laying refers to the official start of the construction of any ship and is considered among the four highlights of any surface vessel with the other three being steel-cutting, commissioning, and decommissioning.

Both ships are armed with an Oto Melara 76mm Super Rapid main gun, an Aselsan SMASH 30mm remote-controlled secondary cannon, anti-submarine torpedoes, and anti-air and ship missiles.

The Jose Rizal-class frigates of the PN are also equipped with a Hanwha Systems' Naval Shield combat management system (CMS), which integrates all shipboard sensors and weapons and decides on which is ideal to deal with any incoming threats.

This system can also detect and track air, surface and sub-surface targets and is used in various configurations by the Republic of Korea Navy, Royal Malaysian Navy and the Indonesian Navy.

"It is a strategic move as (these) ship(s) will be the most powerful in the PN due to its multiple capabilities," Empedrad earlier said. (PNA)


Ahead of the schedule. Not a surprise given the advanced state of completion during launch. The launch of the second unit is also   faster than the Jose Rizal. This is probably because the blocks were already completed and awaiting the launch of the first unit to start assembly.

BRP Jose Rizal (FF150) undergoes historic sea trials

Thursday, 21 November 2019
Headquarters Philippine Navy, Roxas Blvd., Manila – The first of the two units of multi-mission capable frigate of the Philippine Navy (PN), FF150, undergoes various sea trials from 23-27 Nov conducted by the technical crew of Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI).

The 351 by 46-feet frigate will sail towards the open waters off Ulsan, Busan and Mokpo in South Korea to measure its performance and general sea worthiness. Representatives from Lloyd Registry shall witness the activity to ensure that the ship’s construction has met the required standards.

This will be the last phase of construction prior the frigate’s delivery to the Philippines scheduled tentatively in April or May 2020. This will take place six months after the vessel was launched (to the water) for the first time at HHI Shipyard last May.
