General Discussion / Re: Food-for-thought: Gripen vs Viper
« on: October 23, 2018, 09:32:17 PM »
I bookmarked a post from Pinoy Aviators. It's a Gripen vs F-16 in terms of Pros and Cons. I'll place the link below...

"Just because a JV company splits their legal personalities, does not spell an automatic end to any partnerships."

Would it mean some people indeed pushed the panic button too early? Would this mean that Thales is still our FF's CMS?

Military Vehicles / Re: V-150 ambulance

Just curious, was this V-150 intended to just evacuate the wounded in the middle of a combat zone? Does it also have the equipment necessary for stabilizing wounded/ seriously wounded personnel?


". . . the myriad of innovations at the CSSB . . . (to include follow-ons to the Talisman that was dismantled after he moved on to other positions)"

Sir A, what are these innovations that were done? Is there a thread that keeps tabs on them?

Is the GA planning to outsource rifle components? Or the manufacture of the whole rifle to these qualified Philippine arms manufacturers?

40mm AGL. (Automatic Grenade Launcher), M203 grenade launcher. All these uses 40mm grenade rounds.

Oh, of course! Silly me! I was thinking of the ammunition in terms of bullets and I forgot about AGL ammo and M203 grenade launcher...


^Sir A, would this be a fit for this particular topic?

Sir A, which guns use the 40mm? As far as I know, AFP only has the Bofors which use it... Are we gearing up for a new weapon system? Possibly autocannon ammo?

Sir A, is the GA in the process of getting a new machine to produce the 50 cals? Or are they looking to simultaneously acquire both 50 cal and 20mm/25mm production capability?

Sir Adroth, was there a thread back in the old Timawa forums about the AFP Medical Corps? If not, would it be a good idea to start one in this forum?

Hi everyone. Medical student here from PH. I used to visit Timawa forums a lot as it frequently turned up in Google searches for AFP related information. It was for me a goldmine for AFP related things and I'm hoping the new forum will be just as good, if not better. I do hope to one day join the Medical Corps in the future and support our shooters. ;D

If I may add to what I said earlier....
The average Filipino must understand that every inch of our territory is sacred. It should not be surrendered so easily to any potential adversary that wants to clam/ take it for themselves, as this is,for me, one of the most tangible things that previous and current generations can leave to the succeeding generation of Filipinos.

I think the Filipino needs to know the proper name of our vehicles, because I often see people and news articles calling an APC/IFV/any vehicle with a mounted weapon in camouflage paint a "tank"
