Proud of its new iron eagles, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) now hopes to make good use of its newly acquired fighter jets in patrolling the West Philippine Sea. Philippine Air Force (PAF) chief Lt. Gen. Edgar Fallorina said the military’s four new planes definitely boost its air defense capability. “With our four FA-50PH, we have further strengthened our wings and we can now secure more our land, airspace and maritime territory,” Fallorina said during last week’s turnover ceremony of two more fighter jets acquired from South Korea.
