Philippine Navy commissions three more Mark III MPACs

The Philippine Navy held a commissioning ceremony for three new Mark III Multi-Purpose Attack Craft (MPAC) at its headquarters in Manila on Monday, September 23.

Built by local shipyard Propmech, the 16.5- by 4.76-metre missile-capable vessels will be used for interdiction of surface targets, coastal defence, and insertion and extraction of special operations forces.

The three new MPACs will operate alongside their three earlier Mark III sisters, which were commissioned in 2017.
