NEWTOWN, Conn. -- The Philippine government's Department of Budget and Management has signed off on a Special Allotment Release Order allowing for procurement of a ground-based air defense (GBAD) system for the Philippine Air Force (PAF). Funding allocated for the purchase amounts to PHP2.39 billion ($48.4 million).

The Philippines Air Force plans to procure the Israeli-made Spyder self-propelled surface-to-air (SAM) missile system produced by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems to meet its GBAD requirement.

The purchase by the Philippines is being made under the 15-year Revised AFP Modernization Program as part of its "Horizon Two" five-year (2018-2022) phase. The project had originally been expected to be undertaken during "Horizon One' (2013-2017) but was instead bumped back into the second acquisition phase.

The Rafael Spyder (Surface-to-air Python and Derby) air-defense system was selected by the Philippine Air Force (PAF) to meet its Ground Based Air Defense System (GBADS) requirement back in December 2018. The mobile system integrates both the short-range Python 5 and the medium-range Derby missiles into a four-tube slant launcher fitted on an ADS-MR 6x6 vehicle and supported by the Elta EL/M 2016 ATAR 3D surveillance radar affixed to the mobile command-and-control unit.
