    Yes youre right. The camo is based on the one several elite units (eg. SASR, NZSAS, MACV-SOG,etc) used in Vietnam. To be more exact it is called the Tiger*****e. The one seen in the pix are the Philippine ones, exclusive to Navy SWAGs troopers

    even though the SWAG tiger*****e was patterned with the Vietman era camo pattern, there's a slight difference in terms of color combination, the Phil. Coast Guard also have their own tiger*****e pattern camo but a different color scheme, more on orange variations.

    you're right, even though we lack modern sophisticated weapons, our guys are doing their best to fight those who are on the other side of the fence . Our soldiers are in fact giving the ultimate sacrifice just to keep the enemies of the state at bay. A soldier who was KIA made this ....."you pay us with your taxes, and we repay it with our lives"..... RIP to him.

    Then the Armed Forces of the Philippines is a coniseur of "classic" military hardware. From vessels that actually saw action in WW2, to Vietnam Era UH1N's. The tagline of the 15th Strike Wing should be "nobody really owns these equipment, we simply lookafter it for the next generation" from Patek Phillipe.

    m16's are still being used by modern military. What they need are new strategies, good benefits for the family to encourage more people to join the Philippine military. Anyway, keep the pics coming!

    Pardon me? new strategy? I believe the US is applying the strategy they learned from the AFP to the GWOT. Benefits to the soldiers could always be better, but they are actually decently paid.

    agree on the pics coming.

    well,yes. New strategies,in terms of attacking the NPA and extremist in the southern region, just watch the videos posted you'll know what Im talking about. What we are doing in Balikatan exercises are sharing of strategies and ideas,teaming up as one against GWOT. Learning is both ways.

    but still it would be nice to have decent weapons and instead of a Constituent-Assembly (con-ass), we should require the next president of the Philippines to contribute one of his son to the line infantry.

    Could you ellaborate more on what new strategies and tactics they need to use? So far the AFP has been bleeding the MILF and NPA rebels dry of man power, and not because of better compansation package either. even the MILF head mentioned that they can Never defeat the AFP, all they can do is resist to the last man.

    Or are you advocating a more SLA vs. LTTE type of action...
