All AFP and PCG air assets have the PAF roundel so it still falls in the category. And the PN ordered 2 of these so presumably they will be assigned to the 2 GDP-class ships.

PAF going back to supersonic age with South Korean jets

http://globalnation.inquirer.net/99297/paf-going-back-to-supersonic-age-with-south-korean-jets

MANILA, Philippines—The Department of National Defense on Friday completed negotiations with a Korean aerospace company for a squadron of FA-50 lead-in fighter trainer jets, bringing the Philippine military a step closer to returning to the supersonic age after nearly a decade of relying on helicopters and fixed-wing, propeller-type aircraft.

The first units of the Power helos are attack and multi-role aircraft with FLIR. We are expecting 2 Navy ASW versions this year.

These will supposedly be assigned to the new (i.e. not the GDPs) frigates already being bidded out.

Sadly thats the typical belief of misinformed local politicians. The FA-50 is primarily a LIFT (Lead-In Fighter Trainer) i.e. essentially an advanced supersonic trainer with light strike capability, We still need a Multi-Role Fighter (MRF) which is next on the list.

Yup and you can't have an MRF without pilots trained for that hence the requirement to have LIFT in place first. Or we can do what the Vietnamese did and used their "Soviet instructors".

Well, I hope these developments are enough to deter a certain country from their ambitions within our territory.

Maybe they should also acquire intrusion detection and air/sea missile defense systems while they're at it.

The first 2 FA-50PH lead-in fighter trainers are arriving on Friday, 27th November 2015.

http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/742020/philippine-air-force-to-get-12-new-jet-fighters

The Philippine Air Force will have supersonic capabilities as its first two jet fighters ordered from South Korea will arrive at Clark Air Base in Pampanga on Friday.

“This is historic because this is the first time we will have jet fighters since we decommissioned our jets in 2005. It will be the first time we will have a supersonic capability,” said Air Force spokesperson Col. Enrico Canaya on Tuesday.

The two-seater fighter jets will be piloted by Korean pilots. An official turnover will be held later on, said Canaya.
