Philippine Aerospace Development Corp (PADC) has initiated a significant strategic partnership with the renowned Indian aerospace giant Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL). The collaboration aims to introduce the advanced Tejas Mk1A aircraft to the Philippines, specifically designed to serve as a potent naval strike platform integrated with the formidable Brahmos NG missile system.

This groundbreaking alliance represents a pivotal moment in the defense capabilities of the Philippines, as it seeks to enhance its aerial prowess and maritime security. HAL’s willingness to engage in a partnership for the local assembly of the Tejas aircraft by PADC underscores the mutual trust and confidence between the two nations in addressing defense requirements.

Moreover, HAL’s offer of Indian soft loans further demonstrates India’s commitment to fostering defense cooperation and strengthening bilateral ties with the Philippines. Such financial assistance not only facilitates the acquisition of advanced military assets but also promotes economic synergy and technological exchange between the two countries.

The decision by the Philippines to procure more than 40 multirole fighter aircraft as part of its Re-Horizon 3 initiative underscores the nation’s proactive approach towards modernizing its defense infrastructure and ensuring territorial integrity. While initial reports from TV5 News suggested 49 aircraft for Php400 billion, the official Re-Horizon 3 documentation indicates a closer figure of 40 fighters for Php405 billion.
