My concern with buying or acquiring military equipment from Russia or even China, like aircrafts is the inter-operability issue. We may encounter problems considering that we are also buying equipment from different suppliers from America and from Europe.

Para na tayong “United Nations” dahil iba-iba ang supplier natin ng military equipment. Baka magkulang na tayo sa mekaniko.

We are now in a position to buy equipment. I hope we will buy the right equipment. Sayang, kasi ito na ‘yung pagkakataon na we are able to buy, again, modern jet, aircraft and for the first time in history Frigates for the navy. Dapat bilhin na natin ang tamang gamit!

Emphasized the need for reforms in the AFP Procurement. We have to purchase best equipment that our money can buy. Tigilan na pagbili ng mga kagamitan na bulok! Buhay ng mga sundalo ang nakasalalay dito!
