Philippines Receives ScanEagle

The Philippine Air Force takes delivery of the six Insitu ScanEagles

The Philippine Air Force (PAF) just took delivery of the six unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) Insitu ScanEagles it acquired from the US through the US foreign military financing programme for a total of $13.7million.

During the turnover ceremony of the aerial equipment in Villamor Air Base, Pasay City Tuesday, Department of National Defense Secretary, Delfin Lorenzana, said: “(These UAVs are) welcome to the air force, now you have your own UAVs and you can support our operations in the south and we can send (these) birds to patrol our sea lanes there in Sulu, Eastern Sulu and (and waters near) Malaysia.” More specifically, the PAF spokesperson, Major Aristides Galang, indicated the six ScanEagle UAVs would greatly help the military in its conducting air, ground, and naval operations as it is capable of flying missions in support of internal security, anti-terrorism, limited maritime patrol aside from humanitarian assistance disaster relief ones.

The six new ScanEagles will be operated by their 300th Air Intelligence and Security Wing.
