* Portrayed poorly in ''Dragon Strike: The Milleneum War'' in which they surrender to Chinese forces easily. The last mission to retake a Philippine-claimed reef that was seized by China ends in failure, with the Filipinos losing majority of their troops, a gunship, and a troop carrier ship while only one Chinese soldier was killed.

The Philippine Armed Forces consist of an Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps, the last mentioned being the most {{Badass}} according to many military analysts. The other three branches would definitely beg to differ, though. (It's less on the fact that the average soldier is poorly trained or under-equipped-- [[BoringButPractical most of their old equipment is in perfectly good condition despite their age]]-- and more down to a bureaucratic system inside the military itself.)

Recently, the Philippine Air Force had bought 8 Polish Sokol helicopters. And the Navy acquired the former US Coast Guard Cutter USCGC Hamilton (now renamed ''BRP Gregorio del Pilar (PF-15)'' after the famous and handsome FourStarBadass who lead the LastStand on Tirad Pass, ironically ''against'' Americans.) arrived in port on the last week of August 2011. Two more similar ships have been acquired by the navy (''BRP Ramon Alcaraz (PF-16),'' formerly USCGC Dallas, and the ex-USCGC Boutwell (future PF-17), which was decommissioned on March 2016). On June 1 of the same year, the Navy's largest ship, ''BRP Tarlac (LD-601)'' was commissioned along with three [[[AussiesWithArtillery ex-Australian]] landing craft.

The Filipinos later proved their worth in participating in the Korean War with the UN forces. There, Philippine Expeditionary Forces performed relatively well.

The Philippine Air Force and government meanwhile negotiated with the South Koreans to buy twelve FA-50 Golden Eagle supersonic fighter-trainers after it bungled out on the latest US F-16 deal. The PAF apparently chose the FA-50 because, partially it was supersonic, affordable, and at least relatively new. The first two fighters were delivered in late 2015, where they showed up escorting President Benigno Aquino III.
