Philippine Navy successfully test fires 2.75-inch rockets


The Philippine Navy has conducted a test firing activity for 2.75-inch rockets through rocket launchers installed on AW-109 naval helicopter.

Philippine Fleet commander Rear Admiral Alberto B. Carlos observed the test firing on June 22 at Crow Valley Range, Capas, Tarlac.


“As the primary provider of Naval ships and aircrafts, RADM Carlos saw through the successful conduct of live test firing of munitions in order to ensure its functionality and capability with the Philippine Navy’s Naval Helicopter (AW-109) Rocket Launchers,” the Philippine Fleet said.

“The satisfactory testing also highlighted the cooperation between the Philippine Navy and the Philippine Air Force as they shared operational information and experience in firing the same type of rockets,” it added.
