Your 1st for Philippine Defense

Philippine Navy Modernization 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.

  2. Does the modernization act includes the improvement of naval bases/construction of better bases? If yes, will it be included in the 3rd Horizon of the Act? Hoping for response, thank you :)
