[]…  Poland to forge defense cooperation agreement with Philippines
Pravda, Russia – Polish Defense Minister Radoslaw Sikorski said Poland wants to sell helicopters and other defense equipment to the Philippines …[]

INTERESTING… Poland does make quite a number of affordable defense options for the Philippines both countries are 80 per cent catholic – and both do have strong ties and familiar people power experiences… its a good match really even if its far afield from each other – both are major Non Nato allies of NATO powers that be.

I remember Polish Helicopters were offered to the Philippines they make a fine set of choppers which I was told can do more on the same fuel capacity and consumption as the UH1-H.

The Mi-17 a large Russian helicopter that is also made in Poland is a favorite for aid and UN relief agencies because of range capacity and ease of maintenance for example. Other small medium polish made aircraft enjoy quite a large following in other parts of the world as well.  

They make a good mid range alternative for example in disaster relief operations and medical evacuations. Also they have far better range – than the current PAF fleet and can land on water in an emergency.
