フィリピン国防省が、空軍が購入する多目的戦闘機(MRF)航空機のタイプを12月に決定する予定であることを空軍少佐が発表した。

フィリピン空軍(PAF)少将ロッツァーノ・ブリゲスは、空軍が最終的な決定権のある国防省当局とのプログラムの最終候補として挙げられた戦闘機を、選択したタイプを伏せて発表すると述べた。

新しい戦闘機の発注は、2014年に開始されたフィリピン軍によって行われている5年間におよぶ3段階の近代化計画の一部として行われる。

フィリピン政府は、空軍が2017年5月に納入された12機の韓国航空宇宙産業(KAI)製FA-50軽戦闘機ジェットで十分な訓練を行ってから、MRFを購入すると発表した。

1990年代にF-5E軽戦闘機の使用をやめて以来、フィリピン空軍は戦闘機を所持していない。

現時点では、フィリピン空軍で使用中されている艦隊の大部分を回転翼輸送が占めている。

The Philippines defense department will decide in December on the type of multi-role fighter (MRF) aircraft to be purchased by the air force, its chief says.

Philippines Air Force (PAF) chief Lt. Gen. Rozzano Briguez said the air force will make a case for the fighter jets shortlisted for the program with the defense department officials who will make the final decision, without the revealing the exact types. 

 The order for the new fighters is part of a five-year, three-phase modernization program for the Philippines military that started in 2014.

The government has said it will buy the MRF once the air force has enough experience with 12 Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) FA-50 light attack jets, the last of which was delivered in May 2017. 

The PAF has not had fighters since it retired its fleet of F-5E light fighters in the 1990s.

Rotary wing transport makes up most of PAF’s in-service fleet at the moment.
