Hello everybody. For those who living under the rock in the past months, I'm here to get straight to the point on the mod status; the previous skipper who maintain this, stepped out last May 19 due "personal reasons" thus I took over it as a new herald, oh for those who don't know about me I am modder also (mainly from Generals and Red Alert 2), coming out of retirement to support this for one final run. Nevertheless he remains as a Mod Author, and a assistant to me, a God send to him ;-) . We'll so much for the passing on the torch let's get to the unveiling some more of new gizmos on the said faction.
Also special thanks to him and the staff who handed to me the info of this, I am more of a spokesperson of the team working of it.
First we will start off with our mounted Humvee known as the Marine Multi-purpose Vehicle which uses the .30 Cal M134 Gatling style machine gun. Credits: model author; daofeng, tweaks; ArmorPH.
Next up their main APC the GKN Simba. Known for it's sloped armor which makes it the best protected APC/IFV in the Philippine Army arsenal. The previous rendition of the model mesh is too repulsive & awful thus I made a suggestion to the staff for a immediate replacement thus it ended up like this:

Next is the LAV-300 courtesy from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. With it's 90mm gun you use it as a Tank destroyer (similar to Stryker MGS), and a APC due to it's 4 seat capacity. Credits: porting and tweaks; JoseThePork.
Next up we have a really awesome armor unit. It looks like an M1 Abrams, and it performs like an M1 Abrams, but you are half-right, this is an M60-2000; essentially an M60 Patton in a M1 Abrams shell. For the sake of game balance it will only appears in a specific maps related to Combined arms. Credits: model; This comes to us courtesy of this, tweaks; JoseThePork.
Now we have a very recent addition to the mod courtesy from Battlefield: Vietnam. This M113 will be served as a mobile AA alongside the M35A1 Gun Truck in which it will be ported soon. Effective against helicopters but when engaging Jet aircraft it needs some tactics & coordination. Credits: RCW model; cadnav.com, porting and tweaks; JoseThePork.
Before i proceed to the Aircraft section lets have a detour on their unique stationary emplacements:
M55(in the mod; it's known as Mk. 56) comes from Battlefield: Vietnam. A semi counterpart to the PLA's QW2 Vanguard.
The M40 Recoilless Rifle comes to us from the sketchfab.com(custom made).
Last but not least we wanted to show off their Air assets:
Known for it's service in the Vietnam, the UH-1 huey is the signature helicopter of the air cavalry. Credits: model; cadnav.com porting and tweaks; ArmorPH.
Next is the MD-520MG which served as a both scout and attack helicopter. Credits: model; DICE(BF2), tweaks; ArmorPH.
Lastly, the F-5A Freedom Fighter will taking the role as a multi-role aircraft. Credits: model; cadnav.com, tweaks; JoseThePork.
Before I can wrap this up there are changes in P.H. handheld weapons category, two to be exacted:
This particular M1 Garand from the engineer class was edited to be resembled after the M1E5 and T26 (popularly known as the Tanker Garand) Credits: model; DICE (BC2: Vietnam), tweaks; JoseThePork.
Another weapon that has significantly changed in the Medic class was the M60E4 in both model(based on the E3 variant) and the stats. Credits: model; Smilegate(Crossfire), tweaks; JoseThePork.
Both of these guns was done under the request on one of the staff's main consultant.
That's all for now til next time ;-) ....
