The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) is considering the Shaldag Mk II patrol craft to fulfil the service’s outstanding requirement for a new class of 25–35 m interception vessels.

A senior service official who spoke to Jane’s at the IMDEX 2019 defence and maritime exhibition has confirmed that a meeting between PCG leaders and Israel Shipyards was held at the same event on 14 May. The meeting was held to understand the vessel type further, including whether it can be configured according to PCG preferences.
