I'd be inclined to agree with you on that point Mayk. Only a small portion of the Andrada fleet was actually built in the Philippines. IIRC (will need a fact check on this point), the local manufacturer was associated with the US company that made the bulk of the fleet, so there was no wiggle room for maneuvering by special interests.

Arguably, JUSMAG probably also had a front-row seat to the soap opera that surrounded the MPACs and LCU projects. They know how much of a challenge staying on the straight and narrow is for us. Yet more support for a pessimistic view of our prospects for advancement.

Progress at last

One of the best shots yet. Posted on the forum's FB extension

Perhaps not the best photo to be using, to illustrate 'progress at last',
but then it's also prudent not to post the real thing, for now   ;)

Wrt the photo...
The wingtip AIM-9 on that Geagle is clearly marked as having neither a seeker nor a rocket motor:
it cannot be launched. It still is marked as having its HE warhead, though.

The underwing AGM-65 is clearly marked as having neither seeker, nor rocket motor nor warhead.
It's marked explicitly as a training dummy.
