Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana stated he was critical in his proposal to enhance the nation’s protection in opposition to missiles.
“Yes, definitely. Since future wars will be fought off with stand-off weapons, meaning those missiles launched from a great distances. We need to invest on defenses to protect ourselves,” he added.
While protection missiles aren’t half of the Armed Forces of the Modernization Program (AFP) Horizon 2, which is able to run from 2018 to 2022, the DND chief stated it was doable that the nation would possibly initially purchase detection capabilities earlier than the precise missile batteries themselves.
Horizon 2 consists of the acquisition of multi-role fighters and different superior weaponry. (PNA)
