    So we are funding our Military. That's great but we shouldn't invest that much of MBT's since most of our country is covered in trees and making movement will be difficult especially mud, that's the number 1 enemy of tanks.

    If the Philippines is to acquire a light tank or a tank destroyer it should instead go for 2s25 Sprut-SD light tank. It is armed with a 125 mm 2A75 smoothbore cannon with a secondary armament of 7.62 coax pkt mg. It is also capable of firing APFSDS, HE-Frag, HEAT and ATGM ammunition. The important thing about Sprut-SD tank is that it has fjording and amphibious capabilities which is suited for crossing rivers and ideal for tropical and island combat as well as urban warfare.

    105mm is still a pretty low caliber for a tank destroyer, better use a 150mm or a 125mm
    smoothbore for ATGMS and low-velocity APHE rounds

    It's cool to buy from other country, but can we try to make our own?

    It would be awesome if we could purchase an M1A2 or M1A1 American Abrams tanks
    Too bad they are expensive as hell but cutting edge and effective
