Shoulder-fired and mobile missile batteries for AFP

The government is on the works to acquire shoulder-fired anti-air missiles to ensure country’s preparedness to deal with air attacks.

Acquisition of mobile missile batteries with fire control radars and tracking devices is also underway.

“These weapons will be placed in strategic locations in major islands of the country, a ranking defense official, who requested anonymity, said,” as reported by government-run news agency.

The official added that the position of missile batteries will be changed “once in a while to prevent possible adversaries from gaining a fix on their locations.”
