    * This thread is not about the US' donation of a third Hamilton-class cutter but is about a new frigate design offered by various shipbuilding companies. *

    The Department of National Defense has released a Supplemental Bid Bulletin informing prospective bidders of changes in the bidding documents including the Technical Specifications of the Frigate Acquisition Program for Philippine Navy. The said document was released February 2.

    According to the said document, the Philippine government is now acquiring two (2) Frigates with design that the Philippine Navy can have ownership or license to manufacture/build in future. The revised technical specification also stipulated that the frigates should be at least 92 meters long and have a displacement of at least 2000 tons.

    The main aspect of the new frigate procurement program is the design ownership, meaning that more than two can be built without paying additional fees... or local shipbuilding build new hulls using the design of the ship.

    You guys probably could have got some of our Oliver H Perry's for a good deal and modified them to fit your needs but that is only a short term fix. In the long term it's better to have local production that creates jobs and gives your ship builders experience.

    Besides the Korean Ships has the Phillipines been eying any other Frigates? What are some on your wish list?
