At a time when the Philippines Marine Corps is all set to receive three BrahMos missile batteries, the Philippine Navy is now considering to arm its Jose Rizal-class of multi-role guided missile frigates with the ship-launched variant of BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles that will provide enhanced deterrence against any attempt to undermine its sovereignty.

The Jose Rizal class frigates have a displacement of just 2,600 tons but it can easily carry four BrahMos missiles on its silos.

The acquisition of BrahMos by the Philippines has already impacted the power tussle between it and China in the South China Sea, and if the Philippines Navy now moves ahead to acquire its own ship-based BrahMos missiles, then it will be a direct threat and challenge to Chinese warships at South China Sea, which will serve two purposes for India. One is to counter China’s moves to equip Pakistan with sophisticated weapons and the second one is to put the best threat China faces anywhere in this region, at its backyard.
