    HHI Cut Steel of Philippine Navy First HDF-3000 Frigate

    https://www.navyrecognition.com/inde...0-frigate.html

    These new frigates are variant of Hyundai’s own HDF-3000 FFX-I Multipurpose Frigate.

    Its great to see further collaborations between the Philippines and ROK.

    Interesting to see that the Philippine navy will finally be getting a brand-new, purpose-built warship, after having to make do for so long with assorted hand-me-downs for so long. After all, the Philippines still has a number of ex-American WWII-vintage patrol boats in active service; I imagine their crews will probably be ever so slightly jealous for the guys posted to the new ships.

                THE DANGERS OF ALLOWING U.S.-PHILIPPINE DEFENSE COOPERATION TO LANGUISH

                https://warontherocks.com/2018/05/th...n-to-languish/

                On April 17, Philippine defense secretary Delfin Lorenzana and U.S. ambassador Sung Kim took part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the first official construction project under the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA). The project to build a warehouse for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief supplies at Cesar Basa Air Base in Pampanga Province comes more than four years after the two sides inked EDCA, and two years after the Philippine Supreme Court affirmed its constitutionality. The ceremony was at once an important milestone, and a sobering reminder of how far short of expectations EDCA has fallen.

                  If you think thats a problem, wait till you read a paper by the former head of the Intelligence Services:

                  "A “win-win” approach, on the other hand, would involve the approach that the Philippines uses in negotiations with China in resolving our sea dispute. Insisting on our so-called victory at the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague will get us nowhere. It will only agitate and anger our negotiating partner and we will surely end up with nothing but headache and war."
                  WHY is China risking a major war, even a nuclear one, by deploying cruise missiles on South China Sea outposts? The US has warned that there will be consequences with this move by China. If the US launches a pre-emptive strike on these island outposts using its stealth bombers with JASSMs, China will surely retaliate

                    The win-win scenario in that analysis should consider the possibility of full hegemonic control by China of the SCS, and therefore the Philippines will be negotiating under those circumstances for the best deal possible.

                    Not too bad a path for the Philippines to sit on the sidelines in this great power dispute, as the US hasn't *decided* yet whether it has the resolve to keep the SCS free, or that it will or should do so without the full support of the nations involved. Or ultimately whether its time for the US to pass the baton to China.

                      This is the problem so far in that area, the Us ha snot decided yet and China is taking advantage. They just released a video of their H6 bombers landing in those shoals and so far not a peep on all sides. The world pushed the Philippines to take the Chinese to court and being the idiot that we are though "yeah awesome idea" and no we have 3 kick ass naval bases on our back yard care of the Chinese government. What did the world do? shout and wring their fingers and they moved on.

                      Now you have a president that is way ahead of the curve and sees where this is all headed, and instead of resisting, he is biting the pillow and taking it. His problem is convincing the population ho still thinks the world will save them that "we are on our own and we best be neutral"

                            “With Sea Giraffe AMB currently part of three separate US Navy programs, this contract further strengthens Saab’s position as a trusted supplier for the US Navy...

                            Saab is currently delivering its Sea Giraffe AMB to five classes of US Navy surface ships as a part of three separate US Navy programs.
                            These are for Philippine Navy frigate-like CCC conversions.

                              Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana on Monday said the country is now looking for possible suppliers of diesel-electric submarines to beef up the Philippine Navy's capabilities.
                              "Tumitingin tayo sa (We are looking at) (South) Korea at Russia and other countries," he added.
                              According to Lorenzana, while the diesel-electric submarines are part of the Third Horizon of the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program (RAFPMP), which is slated for 2023 to 2028, there is a need to look into possible suppliers as building these undersea vessels takes a long time.
