President Rodrigo R. Duterte was given a first-hand look of the Philippine Army’s (PA) newly-acquired state-of-the-art equipment during its 122nd founding anniversary celebration Thursday.

Army spokesperson, Lt. Col. Ramon Zagala, in a statement said Duterte toured the PA’s Multi-Purpose Mobile Treatment Facility, which provides a rapid, deployable and operational military facility for mobile battalions when conducting military operations.

Zagala said the facility can be transformed into an office, supply room, barracks, and conference room.


Duterte also visited the Forward Treatment Facility that provides surgery for ground troops during military operations and advanced trauma care during disaster relief and humanitarian missions.

The two facilities can be deployed in areas where there are minimal resources and time constraint, Zagala added. PNA
