Why Nine (9) points?
Blame Communist China and her fake Nine-Dash Line.
Since the clear-and-present danger to Our Country's territorial integrity is the infamous Nine-Dash Line, we might as well come up with a Nine-Point Modenization for the AFP. This is the geopolitical adaptation of the "eye-for-an-eye" principle.
So here it is:
1. 5th Gen MRF (ASM & LR AAM capable)
2. UAVs (GM capable)
3. Recon Satellites
4. GM Frigates (ASM, SAM & ASW capable)
5. Attack Submarines (ASM capable)
PA & PMC
7. MBTs (M1 series by default)
8. MLRS (M270 by default)
9. Attack Helo (AH-64 by default)
I know that these upgrades will take a lot of money. But let us ask ourselves the question: With the benefit of hindsight, would we have been willing to mortgage everything we had in 1940 just to avoid the suffering and humiliation we endured during the occupation of Our Country by another Asian Imperialist during the years 1941-45?
And my attack helicopter recommendation would be controversial. But hey, who flies the Apaches and Super Cobras of the US Military?
