Is that an inert AGM-65 Maverick attached to the wing of a PAF FA-50Ph?





And a PAF C-130 is en-route from Tucson, Arizona carrying some "undisclosed items".

^ Almost certain the AGM-65 is a just a mockup for training. That shit is P1M each for the cheapest variant. I don't think we have the budget to be using too many of those lol.

I also think the AGM-65 is too expensive and be an overkill if used in Marawi. A better fit would be the APKWS laser-guided rocket.

Philippine Navy Receives First Tethered Aerostat Radar System from US



The system has a long-range detection and monitoring capability that can detect maritime and air traffic within its domain. This is very much similar to the Tethered Aerostat Radar Systems used by the US Department of Homeland Security

http://maxdefense.blogspot.com.au/2017/08/philippine-air-force-to-procure-elbits.html



Elbit Systems' Hermes 900 is their most advanced UAV on offer, and among Israel's most advanced UAV system. It is described as a medium altitude, long endurance UAV platform that is capable of, and quoting Elbit's own description, "over-the-horizon, persistent multi-mission, multi-payload capabilities" and also "performing missions for area dominance and persistent ISTAR (intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance)"...

...Among the countries that use the Hermes 900 are Israel, Chile, Mexico, and recently Switzerland acquired 6 units to replace older and less capable UAVs in their fleet. Should the PAF acquire this, they will be in possession of the most capable UAV system in the region.

Embraer announced today, November 30, that the Philippines has placed a firm order for six A-29 Super Tucano light attack and advanced training aircraft. The Philippine Air Force (PAF) will use the aircraft for missions including close air support, light attack, surveillance, air-to-air interception, and counter-insurgency.

The Navy on Monday received three Beechcraft TC-90 trainer aircraft from Japan on Monday, completing the transfer of five aircraft as part of a deal between Manila and Tokyo.
It was initially agreed upon that Japan would lease the refurbished trainer aircraft to the Philippines for $28,000 annually for five years. It later donated the planes instead in a bid to boost the Philippine military’s limited maritime capabilities.
