The Philippine Air Force, on July 20, implemented a major reorganization amid the gradual arrival of its different types of aircraft and state-of-the-art equipment.

The Air Force activated the Air Defense Command (ADC) from Air Defense Wing (ADW) which was deactivated at the same event. The 5th Fighter Wing was also reactivated.

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Air Divisions – also deactivated today – became Tactical Operations Wing under reactivated Tactical Operations Command (TOC). Moreover, the 600th, 560th, and 530th Air Base Wings were downgraded to Air Base Groups.

Air Mobility Command (AMC) which was also reactivated was put under the command and control of Air Force Commanding General, Lieutenant General Edgar R. Fallorina AFP.

“With the TOC, ADC, and AMC, we shall carry on performing our mission. We shall carry on being the JET Force for greater peace and security. We shall continue to demonstrate our collective resolve and political will to seek, keep, and sustain peace at all cost,” the Air Force commander said.

Lieutenant General Fallorina underscored that organizational changes and development are important considering the “prevailing strategic realities and operational requirements” of the Armed Forces.

Fallorina also vowed that changes will not affect the number of personnel and current air assets. ““For all intents and purposes, ang lahat ng pagbabago na ito are seen to fortify our JET FORCE strength and courage, and their projection, both for real application and deterrence,” he said.

    3. F16???? Struggle to pay off fa50 and you want this asshole buy f16.

    4. They can if they were to buy it at second hand price. Many in storage in the US just rotting away. Their status as allies and the situation they r in could perhaps prompt the US to sell cheaper. They may jave friction still the alliance is there in principle. Still they cant operate it unless they retire older aircraft otherwise they do not have funds. Another possibility is to buy 3rd hand which is even cheaper. I'm sure somewhere on earth a country that operates an F16 at second hand for quite a long time if so they could sell it at 3rd hand. Plausible but too old. Focus is on the FA50. They need to gain understanding and achieve FOC first. Dont start acquiring a new platform for whatever sake. Patience pays off. It all starts with proper planning and long term planning.

    1. to be fair, rmaf doesn't face as much problem as the pigmoon guy posted in his youtube video. the worst part is the spare part for the migs. the flanker does not face any problem. the rmaf never said that the flanker are bad. they just want to upgrade it since they think it is time to equip them with aesa, new targeting pod and so on. the hawks upgrade is not a wrong decision as well. the hawks have a lot of flight hours left so upgrading them is not a bad thing. the hornet 25x upgrade, make it able to do the same thing as early super hornet can. the nuri which is known to be rmaf biggest problem is not really a flying coffin. most of the nuri crashes are caused by strong wind and the most recent accident was due to the tail got stuck at a telephone pole wire. the rmaf never actually face any operational problem. the problem that rmaf do face is buying new asset and this is not even their fault. it has always been the idiots in the parliament that set back many of the armed forces modernization effort. the 2 billion usd budget that was supposed to be for the mrca program but is going to be use to buy surveillance equipment is not really a bad thing as well. many of the commenter in malaysian defence share the same opinion as well. we actually need the mpa more than new fighter since most our current conflict of interest are at the SCS. an awacs is also considered as surveillance equipment and rmaf have put it in their procurement list even before the mrca program. the awacs might just be a wet dream but I doubt they will use 2 billion usd just for mpa unless they want to buy the p8 Poseidon which is stupid in my opinion.

    2. Lol the pigmoon guy. Im sure u have seen my comments there as well. When he made the video about spares it was tchnically correct. For the migs is a yes and the flankers a little. Why because there was no talk on enhancing the flankers and spares. It was during that period. The slep announced is what pigmoon was waiting for as that included spares. Perhaps the rmaf was a little late on that announcement? Doesnt matter now the air is clear. The migs will it have spares issue unsure as now they decide to upgrafe it there wont unless they did not buy then thats bad.
