PH army to receive 28 upgraded APCs with state-of-the-art system
“We are very pleased to be awarded our first contract for the Philippines Armed Forces (AFP), which we hope will be followed by others,” said Udi Vered, General Manager of Elbit Systems’ Land and C4I.
“Our extensive portfolio and our vast experience enable us to offer our customers advanced solutions, answering the specific requirements of various combat vehicles, and this award further positions us as world leaders in the field of ground vehicle upgrades,” Vered added.
Isn’t it great to know that you made it in something that you were always hoping to! When I was young I wanted to be able to become very successful. I come from a family where dad was killed in a battle and my mum use to stitch clothes and work part time as a secretary to raise the four of us. I wanted to be able to give my mum the best of the life that she deserved.
The reality was different:
Even though I studied very well and got a job immediately out of college, I realized that I wasn’t making enough to be able to give her a comfortable life. The itch to do a little better was always present. One day just before my presentation was due in a very crucial business meeting I was searching the internet for a good quote to start my speech when I happened to read the gist of an article written by a very famous economist of our times and it talked of a new term called binary options.
I was net savvy enough to know that binary had something to do with the computers but I wanted to get over with the meeting and get to know as soon as possible what binary options was all about. The meeting went fantastic and we managed t clinch the deal. I went back home happy and forgot everything about binary options and my on the spur of the moment curiosity.
Later that week, I remembered about it and tried to learn as much as possible straight from the source. I was pleasantly surprised that here was a way of trading on the internet which was safe and secure and best for earning supplementary income. I regretted not having known it for too long but hey better late than never, what say?!
Elbit will be upgrading 28 M113A2s granted by US Defense Security Cooperation Agency to the Philippines. The said upgrade has a contract price of USD2 million.
Upgrades for the said APCs include four 25 mm unmanned turrets, six 12.7 mm heavy machine gun on remote controlled weapon stations (RCWS), and fourteen fire control systems (FCS) for 90 mm turrets. Four APCS will be turned into armored recovery vehicles.
Expected complete delivery is next year 2015.
