18th March 2020 - 14:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Philippine Navy (PN) expects delivery of its first missile frigate, BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150), in the third or fourth week of April 2020, according to a report on the Asian Defense & Security (ADAS) 2020 show website.

Previous reports by Shephard indicated a delivery date of September.

The first-in-class vessel is the first of two constructed by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries, under a PHP16 billion ($310.12 million) deal sealed in 2016.

Late-stage development work on Jose Rizal includes integration of the combat management system.

The second frigate, BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151), is due to be delivered to the PN in September or October 2020.
