T-129 ATAKs finally arrive! TAF planes were used in lieu of Ukrainian Antonovs for obvious reasons.

Nice! Any word on whether the PAF is planning to purchase some Bayraktar TB2s? Those cost under USD 2 million each and the Ukrainians seem to have made good use of them.

Seems like the AFP is the one who wants to continue these military exercises with the US, contrary to the wishes of the commander-in-chief.

^ Will that be equipped with Hellfire missiles? Those would be useful against HVTs.

The T-129 hasn't been certified for Hellfire or TOW, so Philippines would have to pay if that would be integrated. The Turkish UMTAS has reportedly similar performance to the Hellfire II.

Not as sexy as actual hardware, but infrastructure is equally important:

The Philippine Air Force inaugurated its new simulator training center for the SPYDER air defense system (SPADS), which was built in cooperation with the Israeli Ministry of Defense.

The SPADS Simulator Training Center aims to provide training to PAF personnel in operating the SPYDER air defense system it acquired from Israel's Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd under the PAF's Ground Based Air Defense System (GBADS) Acquisition Project, part of the Horizon 2 phase of the AFP Modernization Program.



In other news, seems SoKor and Turkey are now on a bidding war for a 6-ship (corvettes) construction contract with the Philippines. SoKor offering several used corvettes for transfer from its own navy as sweeteners while Turkey is offering technology transfers, building a few of the ships locally and a couple of new unmanned and armed boat drones.

Jose Rizal frigates now have proper anti-ship missiles (SSM-700K C-Star). Test firing next month (June 2022).
