More good news from our One Defense Team: additional troop carriers for the Philippine Army are expected to be delivered within the year.

The Truck Troop Carrier Light project was approved by Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana late last year, with the Defense Chief issuing an Acquisition Decision Memorandum and Special Authority for the Philippine Army Bids and Awards Committee in December 2020 for the procurement of ninety (90) units of trucks.

The project has an approved budget for contract of Php324,000,000.00 and was procured through public bidding under RA 9184.

“These trucks will surely boost the Army’s capability to transport personnel and materiel wherever they are needed, whether it be in combat or humanitarian assistance and disaster response,” DND Spokesperson Dir. Arsenio Andolong said.

A notice of award was issued in favor of ConEquip Philippines Inc., which will deliver trucks made by URAL of the Russian Federation, on 11 February 2021 after passing the requirements set under RA 9184 and its revised IRR.

The trucks are expected to be delivered within 180 calendar days or six months upon receipt of the Notice to Proceed (NTP) or opening of Letter of Credit.

Although unconfirmed to date, it is believed that Conequip Philippines offers the GAZ Sadko Next, a modernized version of the GAZ Sadko which was supplied to the Philippine National Police Special Action Force a few years ago.

It should be noted that Ural also offers a 4x4 variant of its Ural-4320 series trucks in the Ural-43206, a newer version of which is said to be available under the Ural Next brand, designated the URAL-43206-6152-71.
