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 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.

* Not exactly the Philippine military per se, but one of the handlers in ''GunslingerGirl'' seemed to carry a Floro MK-9 submachinegun. The MK-9 is a Filipino-made SMG designed for local police and military use, but has met little success in international sales. Its appearance qualifies thus also qualifies it as a [[RareGuns rare gun]].

* While not ''quite'' a direct reference, Quatre's Maganac Corps in ''GundamWing'' are hinted as either descended from Filipinos (particularly overseas workers who chose to stay in the Middle East), or Middle-Easterners who have adopted Filipino traits. Given that the name most likely came from ''kamag-anak'' or ''mag-anak,'' which roughly translate to "close relation," it would make sense.
