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.
