MANILA - The country's first three multi-purpose attack craft (MPAC), with provisions for missile armament, was formally turned over and commissioned into the Philippine Fleet during short ceremonies at the Naval Base Heracleo Alano, Sangley Point, Cavite City Monday.

These MPACs are the Mark III models and are considerably more advance that the six Mark I and IIs currently in the inventory.

Capt. Lued Lincuna, Philippine Navy (PN) spokesperson, said the MPACs, which has the hull number BA-488, BA-489, and BA-491, were all commissioned and quickly send-off to Davao City by Philippine Fleet commander Rear Admiral Gaudencio Collado after ceremonies at the Capt. Moya Boat Landing around 8 a.m. Monday.

These boats will be participate in the 119th founding anniversary of the PN which will be held in May 31 at Sasa Wharf, Davao City, he added.

The PN spokesperson said that the MPACs will form the 3rd Boat Attack Division of the Philippine Fleet's Littoral Combat Force.

These MPACs were constructed by Subic Bay-based Propmech Corporation.

They will be armed with the Israel's Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd's Spike ER (extended range) in anti-ship mode.

It is capable of penetrating 1,000 mm (39 inches) of rolled homogeneous armor and has a maximum range of five miles.

PN flag-officer-in-command Vice Admiral Ronald Joseph Mercado said installations of the missile systems will follow shortly.

"(The MPACs) are only the platforms; installation of the missiles will follow," he said to the PNA.

These three MPACs are worth PHP270 million which was sourced from the Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Act Trust Fund of 2000.

The contract includes mission essential equipment.

Mission essential equipment includes day/night electronic navigation systems, communication suites, safety-of-life-at-sea, propulsion system and seamanship and ship-handling gears.

    5. the funny part is that none of the ships given by japan is broken. if refurbishment is considered as fixing a broken ships than the f16 you got from uncle sam are also broken as they were refurbished before given to you. idiots who are trying to be a smart ass but turnouts to be a complete fool.

    8. Luqman@ tak lah dari jakarta greater,pembelian scorpene kalian jadi trending topic media dunia,kau pun tahu itu...bila DCNS dah beri komisyen kepada pejabat2 negara awak tuh sebesar 117 million US pastilah project pembuatan scorpene tak lah beres...pastilah ada kekurangan pada proses pembinaan scorpene kerana DCNS dah banyak mengeluarkan wang untuk dapatkan project nih

    9. Mat rempit.

      Its 117 mil euro. Not usd. The so called "komisyen" was paid to Perimekar Sdn Bhd. Syarikat itu dlantik bg menguruskan segala keperluan anggota TLDM yg menjalani latihan kapal selam di Perancis. They had to pay for the accommodation, housing, daily allowance, health insurance, plane tickets and every single knick knacks needed to sustain 2 sets of crews and their families for 3 to 5 years living in France. Adakah tugas yg sama tidak boleh dlakukan oleh pegawai kedutaan Malaysia d Perancis? Yes and no. But thats water under the bridge now. Itu sebabnya pihak TLDM telah menubuhkan semua sekolah kapal selam d Telok Sepanggar. Calon krew kapal selam terbaru tidak lg perlu menjalani latihan d negara luar.

      The scorpene were not downgraded. Semak jumlah penuh kontrak perolehan kapal selam tersebut. Im not going to spoon feed u. We received the scorpene to our specifications minus the AIP.Yes there were problem initially but it is not bcoz they were downgraded or corruption was involved. The Type 214 were pleagued with problems during their early years of service. Adakah pihak German, Greece dan juga Korsel terlibat dgn rasuah???
