Indonesia to build amphibious transport docks for the Philippines

3
According to Philippine media reports, the Indonesian state shipbuilding association PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) was recognized as the winner in the tender for the construction of two amphibious transport-docks for the Philippine Navy under the Strategic Sealift Vessel (SSV) program. An official notice was given to the Indonesian company at the end of December 2013, as announced on January 9, 2014 by the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Philippines Fernando Manyalo. Both ships should be included in the Philippine fleet in 2016 year.


PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) offered for a Philippine tender a ship project, which is essentially a reduced modification of the Makassar-type DTD under construction for the Indonesian Navy under the project of the South Korean corporation Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME). The Indonesian proposal is worth PLP 3,864 billion (about $ 87 million). The winning design of the ship has a total displacement of about 7000 tons, a maximum length of 123 m and a width of 21,8 m. The power plant includes two B&W 9L38 / 32A medium-speed diesel engines with a capacity of 3000 hp each, providing a speed of up to 16 knots. The ship has a dock chamber for basing two LCU-23M landing boats, a cargo hold and is capable of carrying up to 520 airborne troops and 2800 tons of cargo. The flight deck has two landing pads for Sikorsky UH-60 class helicopters, and one such helicopter is located in the hangar in the superstructure. The armament of the ship, according to the requirements of the Philippine Navy, should include one medium-caliber universal artillery mount and two 30-mm artillery mounts.

Initially, according to the proposals of 2009, the Philippine Navy planned to acquire one large (MRV) and two smaller (SSV) landing craft docks, but for financial reasons by the end of 2011 the program was "shrunk" to two SSV ships. At the same time, and in the subsequent, the funds planned for the allocation of the program were reduced from 5 to 4 billion Philippine pesos. In total, nine companies presented their proposals in the Philippine tender for the construction of two DTD SSVs - the Philippine Propmech Corp. and Stone of David Tactical Equipment, a consortium of Filipino companies Astartez Defense and Rescue Solution and Coastal Industries Pse, Keppel Philippines Marine Inc, a Keppel Marine in Singapore, South Korean STX Offshore Shipbuilding and DSME, Indonesian PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) and PT Citra Shipyard, and Indian Larsen & Toubro. The final shortlist included DSME and PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) - that is, the choice was essentially made between two variations of the same basic South Korean project.

    Well, the Philippines is preparing for a territorial dispute over the Spratly Islands (an archipelago of tiny islands in the South China Sea, rich in oil and natural gas reserves, the rights to which are disputed by Vietnam, the Philippines, China, Taiwan, Brunei and Malaysia). In 2002, the Filipino military already accused the Vietnamese army of shelling the Philippine Air Force planes over the islands.
    In 2011 and 2013, the Americans handed over to the Philippines 2 TFR of the Hamilton project from the Coast Guard.
    In addition, the Navy includes: 1 Cannon-class frigate from the Second World War and 11 corvettes, of which 3 modern Jacinto types, built in 1982-1983, transferred by the British in 1997 from the Hong Kong police, after the transfer Hong Kong to China. There are 38 more patrol ships, and the rest are ex-American from the Second World War (2 Oak type, 6 Admiral type). There are no anti-ship missiles and air defense systems on ships, i.e. no ship meets modern requirements. Thus, the Philippine Navy is the weakest in the region.

      Say this to the Chinese, who are buried in foreign islands. In 1988, China attacked Vietnam on the Spratly Islands, and Gorbachev ordered our ships in Kamrani not to intervene. Like this.

        And did the Chinese get away with it? If so, then it is worth considering. Now they are much stronger.

          Got it. The Chinese captured 7 islands, sunk 3 Vietnamese ships with 70 people on board. This is by the way for the ardent patriots of China in this forum

            Well, not three, but one. During the transient battles in March 1988 in a naval battle near Johnson Reef (Xin Kou), the Vietnamese Navy lost one landing ship and about a hundred people. As a result of these events, the PRC captured the 7 reefs and atolls of the Spratly archipelago, receiving a supporting bridgehead for further actions to establish control over other islands.

            At the same time, Vietnam retained control over almost 20 islands of the archipelago, while China - over 6, Taiwan - over 1, the Philippines - over 8. In May-June of 2011, several incidents occurred between Vietnam and China, such as damage to the cables of Vietnamese research vessels, protests near Chinese diplomatic missions in Vietnam, exchanges of statements by politicians and diplomats, Vietnam’s naval exercises, and hacker wars.

    In southeast Asia, it seems, they are starting to fan the fire, which, against the background of the strengthening of the Chinese navy, the latest statements of the samurai, will become a problem for us as well, the power and the naval and coastal ones on the Tikhiy must be increased, as they say "the east is a delicate matter.

      We need to build up the ground forces, for China’s army is even steeper than the fleet.

        Unfortunately, this is unlikely. The PLA is grouped in the Far East-Frenzied. The country is a little crowded. And it is on our borders. And we have almost 0 without a stick there. Sadly, however.

          I share your concerns. But, it seems to me that not quite stupid people are sitting in the General Staff. There has already been a case in our history when information from Richard Sorge allowed us to safely expose the borders in the Far East. I think that today a similar situation. And besides, the strategic forces of nuclear deterrence do not just exist. I do not think that in the case of a treacherous attack, something will stop us from just retribution.

    Yeah, besides, they're going to cut it by 300. Do not underestimate them, especially taking into account the mobile reserve. But there is no need to cashmarize. And the Filipinos are great, the country is not continental, such delivery vehicles are very useful in life, just in case of an unexpected case. That's how we are with the Syrian Express.

    It’s strange somehow ... The Philippines occupies the 3rd place in the world in the number of ships built. There are continuous islands. Shipyard - the sea. Why order korobili in Indonesia
