Philippine Air Force Modernization Program Projects

The MaxDefense's AFP Modernization Program Project Database was inspired by Defense Industry Daily's format, of creating a library of AFP Modernization Program projects as a resource that will be updated occasionally as corresponding new information becomes available.

This would take some time to build up as we are doing this from scratch, and only during free time.
