Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernization Program
Ministry of Defense


The Armed Forces of the Philippines, the military arm of the Republic of the Philippines, is now launching it's grandscale modernization program called the Capability Upgrade Program or CUP. It's objective is to reorganize, modernize, restructure the Philippine Army, Philippine Navy, Philippine Air Force, and Philippine Marines in order to maximize the capacity of it's soldiers during at wartime.

It's been for almost 2 decades since the AFP has sought for modernization plans, and today, AFP again stands with the direct order from the President for a "rush" acquisition of new equipments, drafting of soldiers, improvement in both basic and advanced military training, and improvement in military strategies and tactics.

The AFP seeks all nations to offer and bid their equipments for this program in Army, Marines, Navy and the Air Force, as the government alotted $50 Billion (which came from the tax of Filipinos) for the program to neutralize the insurgents who try to torn the beloved nation of the Philippines apart. The AFP is now open for bidding of the following equipments from the said nations:

India [Amzi] - August 17, 2009 02:36 PM (GMT)
Please let me bid

United States [Maikeru] - August 17, 2009 02:45 PM (GMT)
The United States of America feels that such an ambitious modernization of the Filipino military is a misplaced priority. In the midst of what is quickly becoming a civil war, how does the Republic of the Philippines expect to be able to pay for this modernization while simultaneously attempting to wage a war effort?

Secondly, the possibility that any equipment sold might be allowed into terrorist hands - terrorists who are likely in league with Al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremists - makes the sale of any equipment to the Philippines very risky at this time.

Further, equipment such as this takes months, if not years to produce and ship, not to mention the vast amounts of time which will be required to train soldiers with their new equipment and integrate the technology into the armed forces. Even in peacetime that would take many years; when the same soldiers are off fighting a war, it is impossible. What is the Filipino interest in such a procurement when what they need to fight the rebels is needed right now? There are other ways in which the Philippines's foreign allies may assist them in fighting off these terrorists, many ways which are much smarter and more efficient than simply selling sensitive military equipment to a rather unstable nation.

We urge that no nation place bids on this plan, for the reasons mentioned above. We look forward to helping out the Philippines with their fight against terror, but this is not the way to go about it.

United Kingdom [Norcal Punk] - August 17, 2009 04:02 PM (GMT)
While we agree with the United States that the modernization plan of the Filipino armed forces is rather too ambitious to be effectively achieved, the UK will make some offers that we believe is cost-efficient, ready-to-use, and more importantly, useful in such guerilla war as the one the Philippines is facing. All offers are at reduced price.

* Up to 40 used Saxon APC for $200,000/unit (half the market price of the vehicle).
* 16 used Tornado GR4 ground attack-reconnaissance aircraft, refitted and upgraded in in 2003, for $40 million/unit. The Royal Air Force will also provide training for Filipino pilots if needed.
* Lynx Mk.140 multirole helicopter, an export version of the Lynx AH.9 of the British Army, designed specifically for the Philippines if ordered. Price at $30 million/unit. The Lynx is one of the most successful military helicopter in the world. The aircraft has proven its value through major wars in recent history: the Gulf War of 1991, the Yugoslavian wars, and the Iraqi war in 2003. Yet unlike the previous two offers, the helicopters are only built on order and thus won't be available for a few months. You might then be more interested in the next offer.
* 12 used Lynx AH.7 anti-tank/attack helicopters for $18 million/unit. These used helicopters were designed specifically for attack purpose. They have served well in the British army for many years and are in good condition.

Germany [Schwerpunkt] - August 17, 2009 10:25 PM (GMT)
The Federal Republic of Germany will submit bids when the time is appropriate for such. In the interim, the following have been dispatched from Kiel to the Philippines:

- 3 tonnes of rice
- 48 kegs of beer
- 5,000 G36k assault rifles (5.56mm)
- 800 G3A3 assault rifles fitted with optics (7.62mm)
- 12,000 MP5 submachine guns (9mm)
- 230 MG3 general purpose machine guns (7.62mm)
- 15 Panzerfaust 3-T anti-tank rocket launchers with 75 rockets
- 600 hand grenades
- 30,000 bullets, in a variety of STANAG forms; 15,000 7.62mm, 7,500 each 9mm and 5.56mm.

The Federal Republic of Germany is preparing a more substantial response to the events in the Philippines, however these supplies are being sent in advance.

Philippines [Dwight] - August 18, 2009 05:57 AM (GMT)
United States
The government of the Philippines understand the decision of the United States regarding this program, and it shall be respected. But, we're still requesting the United States, if possible, to sold-off vintage weapons that are still usable just to increase the capacity of the AFP to fight against terrorists and revolutionaries.

United Kingdom
The Philippine government sends its gratitude about selling us it's old usable weaponry for the use against the terrorists and revolutionaries. As a rush, the PAF would like to order the following:

-- 40 used Saxon APC for $8 Million ($200,000/unit)
-- 16 used Tornado GR4 Ground Attack-Reconnaissance Aircraft for $640 Million ($40 million/unit)
-- 12 used Lynx AH.7 Anti-Tank/Attack Helicopters for $216 Million ($18 million/unit)
-- 20 used Lynx Mk.140 Multirole Helicopter for $600 Million ($30 million/unit)

Total Used: $1.464 Billion
Remaining Procurement Budget: $48.536 Billion

United Kingdom [Norcal Punk] - August 18, 2009 06:10 AM (GMT)
((I don't have any problem selling these weapons I offered, but you may wanna clear your budget with the Mod because ~$50 billion is about 1/5 of your GDP, that is huge))

OOC:

Sorry, Dwight, but as a mod, I've got to nix your $50 billion emergency budget. Your entire GDP is only about $200 billion, which puts this procurement at 1/4 of your entire GDP. There's no way the population would stand for an increase in taxes that high.

You've already increased your defense spending by over 100% without significant RPing of the reasons behind that. I'll give you that, both because the Philippines IRL spends very little on defense, and because it happened before I became a military mod. That puts your typical procurement budget at $1.6 billion or so. Since you've only increased your defense budget a few years ago, I'd allow that your procurement might be more like 35-40% of your defense budget, which gives you more like $2.8-3.2 billion. Since this is an emergency for you, I'd allow that you could vote in additional procurement funds for this year only of $4 billion, if you RP it. For the duration of the war, if you RP it, you can increase your defense budget by 40% and maintain your procurement budget at 30% of your defense budget. This would put your wartime defense budget at 5.6%, with 30% of that going to procurement.

Just to be clear, here's how that would all break down:
  • One-time increase in procurement for 2012: $4 billion
  • 2012-only procurement budget = 40% of your defense spending: $3.2 billion
  • Total 2012 procurement funds: $7.2 billion
  • Wartime defense budget: 5.6%
  • Wartime procurement: 30% of defense budget

All of these things must be RPed in order for you to get them.

Philippines [Dwight] - August 18, 2009 12:54 PM (GMT)
OOC:

I knew someday this will happen. LOLZ!! :D Anyway, does this means that it would be like this:
  • Initial 2012 Defense Budget: $8,154,880,000 (4% of 2012 GDP)
  • Initial Procurement Budget: $2,246,464,000 (30% of the 2012 Defense Budget)
  • Additional Unused Procurement Budget Last Year (2011): $2,684,869,000
  • Total Initial Procurement Budget: $4,931,333,000
From here....it would be like this:
  • Total Defense Emergency Budget (Wartime): $10.837 Billion (5.6% of GDP)
  • Additional Emergency Procurement Budget (Wartime): $3.25 Billion (30% from the 5.6% of GDP of the DEB (Wartime))
  • Total pf Additional Emergency Procurement Budget (Wartime) + Total Initial Procurement Budget: $3.25 Billion + $4.93 Billion = $8.18 Billion
  • Total Emergency Procurement Budget (Wartime): $8.18 Billion
Which means, I have $8.20 Billion Procurement Budget for this wartime, isn't it?? (That Procurement Budget of $8.20B is not yet subtracted by the recent acquisition of weapons & military hardware)

Pakistan [X] - August 18, 2009 12:55 PM (GMT)
Pakistan offers Talha-series APCs (similar to M113, available with IFV turret, additional armour, ATGM launching variants etc.), and our Al-Zarrar upgrade package, which would allow the Philippines to upgrade surplus T-54/55s and Type 59s with more armour, various improvements and a 125mm gun.

United Kingdom [Norcal Punk] - August 18, 2009 01:14 PM (GMT)
The Lynx Mk.140 is still a proposed project. It is a version of the Lynx AH.9 and is designed to export to the Philippines. No helicopter of this version has been built. AgustaWestland corporation will only start making them if the Filipino government wish to place an order for the aircraft. The company currently has the capability to produce and deliver 5 helicopters per quarter. It will take 4 quarters for the whole package to be delivered.

The rest can be transferred to the Filipino military within 4 weeks.

To assist the Filipino government, the we offers to accept a payment plan that will span 10 years. In other words, the Philippines will only have to pay $146 million this year to receive all the equipments. It should be noted, however, later payments will be adjusted according to the inflation rate in the UK.

The government of the RP gives its gratitude to Germany in giving/providing us weapons and materiel for support, as the current situation in Mindanao worsens.

OOC: It's a little hard to say what can come from last year, since you don't keep good records of yours, but I'll allow you your full procurement from last year, mostly because yours is normally too low to allow you to purchase much of note.

The 5.6% emergency budget, however, is what your total defense budget would pop up to, not an additional budget.

Take the $7.2 billion this year, and RP an emergency session of the legislature to give it to you. For next year (and for the rest of the war) you can take 5.6% of your GDP as your defense budget, with 30% of that going to procurement.

And please start keeping detailed records of your purchases. It's tough having to troll through Moorington's shop thread, for instance, to see where you bought Mirage fighters.

Singapore [CM08] - August 19, 2009 02:01 AM (GMT)
And given the instability by the commies and muslim terrorists, your economy's pretty much screwed for next year...(considering the uprising started from 2012 1Q) you can pretty much forget about having sufficient funds for procurement. The deployment cost for your military will have shot up plenty.

Australia [Bugs Bunny] - August 19, 2009 03:30 AM (GMT)
The Australian Department of Defence will provide $75 million dollars for the purchase of military wares from a foreign nation, other than Australia. We will provide $1 million dollars for purchase of ammunition and other equipment for the AFP. In addition, we will give the AFP $100 million dollars for the purchase of Australian equipment. And additional $24 million will be allotted should this equipment be guaranteed to be used in conjunction with allied forces who aim to root out the communist uprising.

Ships
Armidale class patrol boat: This is the primary patrol capability for the RAN. They are made by Austal, the same parent company which produces the Littoral Combat Ship and the Joint High Speed Vessel. These will be offered for $18 million dollars new built, as Defence will help with their purchase, and that they are a somewhat older in design. With the introduction of the Littoral Combat Ship into the Royal Australian Navy, we will be able to sell up to 10 further Armidale class boats for $10 million.

Australia is able to provide two Fremantle class patrol boats for the AFP navy. While this is not a modernization by far, this will help augment patrols in the unfriendly waters. They will need to be operated close to Australian Naval assets, in order to preserve security.

Expeditionary Express (renamed from Joint High Speed Vessel the USN, for RAN service): This is not presently ready for production in Australia as yet, but is expected to be by 2013 with the intended purchase of these by the Royal Australian Navy. The vessel is large enough to carry some 600 soldiers and their equipment at up to 40 knots. The ship is also able to carry a number of light armored vehicles, and main battle tanks. These can be sold for $170 million per ship.

Vehicles
ASLAV: The ASLAV is based on the American LAV-25, built in Australia for service in the Australian Army. It is a light infantry fighting vehicle which can carry up to 6 additional. These will cost $1.9 million

Shadow: The Shadow IFV is available from Australia or Singapore as a heavier IFV which comes in more variants of armament. The vehicle will cost $2.6 million per vehicles.

Bushmaster IMV: The Bushmaster is a MRAP style vehicle which has already seen service in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. It has the capacity for up to 9 passengers plus the driver. These will be roughly $575,000 per vehicle depending on the variant.

Weapons
Austeyr: The Austeyr is the Australian variation of the Steyr produced in Austria. The Austeyr is available as surplus from the Australian Army. We will sell up to 5,000 of them for $200 dollars per rifle. If there is a request for more, later orders will be free, and will come with a standard of 300 rounds of ammunition per additional rifle ordered.

AICWS: The AICWs is an advanced rifle, which features a three shot grenade launcher. The 40mm rounds are fired using Metal Storm systems for reliability. The rifle also does not force the operator to change positions while firing. The primary weapon also uses 5.56mm NATO standard rounds. These will cost $700 per rifle.

Do I need to RP it using legislature?? I just declared Martial Law an in-game quarter ago. Check the Manila Times. :D

Iran [JBHemlock] - August 19, 2009 05:26 AM (GMT)
OOC: It'd be nice. Otherwise all you're doing is using the declaration of martial law to say "I'm doing whatever I want with no RP effort at all".
