    While the PH Army is still using the FV101, it may be complemented or replaced by an M113 that has the turret from the FV101

    Like this one...

    Though that M113 is not one of the vehicles modified by Israel.

    "A major part of the project is the transfer of the Scorpion's two-man turret, which is equipped with a 76mm cannon and a 7.62mm machine gun, onto the M113 -- transforming it from a "battle taxi" into a fire support vehicle.

    The upgraded M113 fire support vehicle will be equipped with new fire control and thermal imaging systems that will give the FSVs all-weather capability to detect and engage targets at longer distances as well as improve weapon accuracy.

    According to Jane's, a military analysis website, the 76mm gun "will be very useful in counterinsurgency operations as it can fire a wide range of ammunition types including high explosive, smoke, illuminating, and high-explosive squash head.""

    ----------------


    It was reported back in 2012 that the PH Air Force is considering the Embraer EMB 314 Super Tucano to replace the OV-10 Bronco, but no news updates were reported. It is either no longer shared publicly, or leftist groups blocked it.

    Also, if this news is true http://themaharlikan.info/defense/p...s-this-2016-was-blocked-by-leftist-partylist/ , then an attempt to procure SAAB JAS 39 Gripen was also blocked by said leftist groups, some having ties with the Maoist Communist Party of the Philippines and their armed wing, the New People's Army

    Save for the Pohang-class and former Peacock-class, the corvettes of the PH Navy are WW2 vintage.
