A Marines battalion sees PN’s missile frigate in action
The commanders and enlisted members of the Philippine Marine Corps’ Coastal Defense Regiment were shown off by the BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151), one of the Philippine Navy’s (PN) two operational guided missile frigates (CDR).
The Indian-made Brahmos medium-range ramjet supersonic cruise missile weapon is ready to be operated by the CDR.
The upgraded system of BRP Antonio Luna was shown to CDR troops in a “CIC capability demonstration” on March 7, according to a Monday post on the frigate’s Facebook page.
“Combat information center,” or CIC for short, is the onboard facility in charge of running all of the ship’s weaponry and sensor systems.
“The Philippine Marine Corps’ CDR is set up to manage shore-based missile weapons. The instructive visit and lectures gave the pupils a general understanding of how missile systems operate “That was excellent.
A CDR was established on August 7, 2020.
It noted that the BRP Antonio Luna, one of the top missile platforms in the PN, endorses this initiative as crucial for increasing awareness and educating the CDR members on their upcoming tasks and obligations.
In a virtual ceremony in January 2022 at the DND headquarters in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City, former defense secretary Delfin Lorenzana and BrahMos Aerospace director general Atul Dinkar Rane signed the PHP18.9 billion contract for the BrahMos missile system.
Under the terms of this agreement, the nation will purchase three batteries of BrahMos cruise missiles. The BrahMos cruise missiles will significantly increase the PN’s firepower, particularly the CDR of the Marines, according to Lorenzana.
He continued by saying that the BrahMos cruise missile system would allow for counterattacks inside the exclusive economic zone of the Philippines.
The BrahMos missiles, which are the fastest supersonic cruise missiles in the world, will serve as a deterrent to any attempts to violate our sovereignty and sovereign rights, particularly in the West Philippine Sea, according to Lorenzana.
The BrahMos cruise missile has a top speed of about Mach 2.8 (about 3,400 km/h) and can carry warheads weighing 200 to 300 kg. It can be launched from a ship, aircraft, submarine, or land.***
