CGPA leads blessing of 50 troop carrier trucks

    FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila – The Philippine Army conducts the blessing of 50 newly-acquired troop carrier trucks in a ceremony at the Headquarters Philippine Army Grandstand, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City today, May 19, 2020, with Lt. Gen. Gilbert I. Gapay, the Army Commanding General as keynote speaker.

    The 50 trucks, designated as KM250, were procured by the Army through the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program (RAFPMP). The vehicles will augment the Army's existing mobility assets and were temporarily issued to the Army Support Command (ASCOM) to further increase its mobility readiness and to be utilized in the operations against the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

    “KM250s, along with their other counterparts, have become synonymous to the Army’s sustainment operations. These 2 ½ ton-workhorses are all over the country – in Internal Security Operations, development efforts, reliefs, partnerships, and now in our pandemic operations. Let us take care of our vehicles, and keep them always on top working condition. As more transports enable us to become more mobile, we ensure that our service keeps rolling smoothly,” said Gapay. #
