Antonio Bautista Air Base, Puerto Princesa City — Three FA 50 fighter jets arrived and landed today on Puerto Princesa City to participate in the Armed Forces of the Philippines Joint Exercise (AJEX) dubbed as “Dagat, Langit, Lupa” or DAGIT PA 2018 which is being held in WESCOM’s Joint Area of Operations and in Luzon Areas until 03 August 2018.
The said aircraft are participating in the Field Training Exercise (FTX) phase of the DAGIT PA 2018 which will be staged in the eastern part of Palawan.
The AJEX DAGIT PA 2018 started on 23 July 2018 with a Staff Exercise (STAFFEX) phase which was participated in by the key staff officers of Western Command led by their Commander, LtGen Rozzano D Briguez. This phase trained the participants on Contingency and Crisis Action Planning, and Command and Control of joint forces.
“We are thrilled to have our fighter jets joining the FTX phase of this year’s AJEX in WESCOM’s Area of Operations, along with our naval assets and ground troopers, because this will give us the opportunity to test our interoperability doctrine, jointness and readiness as One AFP,” said LtGen Briguez.
“It is highly significant that our forces and assets train together in the spirit of jointness in order to enhance our ability to respond to any contingency in the future. This AJEX DAGIT PA provided us with such important training,” he added.
The AJEX DAGIT-PA, on its 4th iteration this year, is a unilateral exercise that focuses on the development of the AFP’s capacity on joint operations and enhancing interoperability of its forces from the Navy, Air Force and Army. The said exercise will also enhance the individual capacity of personnel and unit capabilities to enable them to be readily deployable to address contingencies in all mission areas.
