Flights paths show the incursions occurring over the Philippine side. Not the Taiwanese side.


Their tracks appear to be overflying Mavulis Island (Philippine air space) as they fly about Taiwan.
It would be interesting to see the view from the PAFs new air defense radars.

As the PAF ramps up it's radar sites, it has become the well informed weakling. Able to see what's happening. Powerless to do anything about it.

Why buying new is not always the most financially prudent thing to do.
Applies to all sorts of things. Fighters, ships, etc.


Should this come to pass, the PN had better get in on the action and acquire at least some of these at what will be bargain prices.

Alternatively, should the pull of new construction be too strong, then it is an opportunity to acquire systems that go into these aircraft that the PN could not otherwise afford and have left out i.e. ECM, ESM, ASW systems and put these on new construction.

From the angle of the video, it doesnt look like it was rammed. More like swamped with the wake wash on the side.
Excellent result all around though. The investments being made are paying off.
Good job, Army, Navy and Air Force!

Kinda cryptic. "Platform with launchers"? VLS launchers?

All this investment in sensors is well and good but...
Firepower is the key. You have to have firepower.  Without it, you’ll just be a well-informed loser when the enemy’s firepower overwhelms you.


Looks like the PN gave up trying to maintain the two twin 40mm mounts on the stern and replaced them with the simpler single 40mm per side.

Say what you want. It's a beautiful ship.
Now will someone please order the VLS, SSMs and sort the Link16 issue.

Accept. For all the faults, it's there and it's something to build on.  Hopefully we can get the flight II ordered.
Hopefully, with the the GDPs sharing the same systems, we can get at least 5 missile armed ships.

Missing the AeroCommander special missions a/c

Sure, but the PAF wont have to buy or beg or borrow those funds. The Army has to do it.  Still a plus for the PAF imho.

Getting fancy here. HE-ERFB. High Explosive Extended Range FB and BB are both Base Bleed types. Nice!
