3 Naval Choppers Deployed Aboard Cutters


The three AgustaWestland AW-109 “Power” naval helicopters, scheduled for delivery this December, will be deployed aboard the BRP Gregorio del Pilar and BRP Ramon Alcaraz, Philippine Navy (PN) flag officer-in-charge Vice Admiral Jose Luis Alano said Friday. “The [helicopters]will increase the frigates capability for maritime surveillance,” he added. The PN chief stressed the two ships and naval helicopters will greatly improve the Navy’s maritime situational awareness or the capability to detect, monitor and engage any seaborne threat.
