Diversified sourcing

This year also marked the first deliveries of equipment from non-traditional sources as part of the administrationís controversial balancing act between traditional allies and regional rivals.

Chinese weapons

A variety of Chinese firearms were donated to the Philippines as part of Chinaís fence-mending initiatives in the post-Aquino era in July 2017. However, contrary to initial reports about these donations being given to the AFP, these weapons were actually donated to the Philippine National Police.

Russian weapons

Efforts to foster closer ties between the Russian Federation and the Philippines bore fruit on on October 25, 2017 when the guided missile destroyer Admiral Panteleyev delivered a shipment of 5,000 assault rifles, one-million rounds of ammunition, 20 army trucks, and 5,000 steel helmets. The process of assimilating these equipment into the AFP is ongoing. Photos below are care of Inquirer.net particularly Nestor Corrales.
