EXACTLY

Note that DAPA actually rejects locally-made equipment if they don't pass DAPA evaluation. In which case, DAPA acquires foreign equipment and its back to the drawing board for the local brand.

DAPA means Defense Acquisition Program Administration. Am I right?

You got it.

The question is.. is the HANWA system really bad?

Define 'bad'.

If you mean "will NS fail to serve as a reliable, effective CMS?" then lolol no, it's not bad.
If you mean "does NS fail to live up to the expectations of wannabe SME?", well...
there's a reason I've held back posting: too stressful and ultimately pointless.

I feel you h, I feel you.

It's hard battling the wave of copycat wannabe SMEs deriding the CMS when they don't even understand what they're fighting for...

On top of it all, all semblance of OPSEC blown to bits as a consequence of the effort to prove points could only be proven by sharing details that ought never be laid bare to the public in the first place.

At the end of the day, what the PN needs is an honest, no B.S. post-mortem that is only aimed at getting to the truth and determining best practices for future reference . . . without focusing on blame. That way people can come clean and not worry about harming themselves or their peers and just focus on getting at the heart of the matter.

This type of inquiry is similar to what the Singaporeans did with their A4 crashes a decade ago. (Need to find a copy of that article . . . yet another things lost when Timawa 1.0 went down). That is the ONLY way anyone ever gets to the bottom of this mess.

A mess that actually spans multiple Presidents . . . multiple SNDs . . . and multiple FOICs. But with all the money on the line, there is a lot of incentive to lump blame on whoever is last to find his musical chair.

Sadly, the battle lines between dumb and dumber have already been drawn in the Senate, so all that political circus will yield is nothing but buck-passing and arse-covering . . .

. . . with none of the context that the country really needs about what it got, and what more needs to be done.

1) You decided to buy a car after years of taking public transportation, and got a budget for a Hyundai.
2) After talking to some folks, you think you can stretch it to Toyota.
3) You went down to the dealership, the dealer sold you the idea that you can get a BMW for your budget.
4) After signing on the dotted line, the dealer hemmed and hawed and said that he can only get you a Toyota. (Fineprint says he's right)
5) You complained that the dealer is a duplicitous arse and he has to deliver a BMW cuz that's what he wrote and Toyota is a lousy vehicle.
