Philippine Navy’s Jacinto Class on Track to Conclude Combat Systems Restoration in 2018

A third phase to extend service life of the Philippine Navy’s Jacinto-class corvettes is expected to complete by end-2018. Restorations are expected to cap a multiphase series of upgrade efforts that have been ongoing since the mid-2000s.

A project to restore combat systems of the Philippine Navy’s fleet of three Jacinto (Peacock)-class corvettes is on track for completion by end-2018.

The restoration and sustainment works are done under Phase 3 of a service life extension programme (SLEP) that began in the mid-2000s. Under this stage, which has been further divided into Phase 3A and Phase 3B due to fiscal considerations, weapons and fire-control systems on each of the vessels are being repaired and refurbished with new components where required.
