I have been looking at the meme that is Filipino SCS tensions. My verdict? The Philippines have no business getting into conflict with anyone.
Their airforce has a single fixed-wing combatant squadron made of converted trainer jets (FA-50). No BVR missiles in the inventory and they are just getting modern IR guided missiles. The current AAM inventory is just AIM-9L
Their navy has no ships capable of area air defense. In fact none of their ships have anything beyond MANPADS and old-style guns for air defense. ASW capability is token with no TAS or ASW missile available in the navy. 2 ships have a single helo, hull-mounted sonar (HMS) and torpedo tubes. And another two have HMS and torpedo tubes. There are two more patrol vessels with HMS and a single helo but I am not sure if they are ASW capable. No subs in the inventory.
Air defense? Pretty much non-existent for a country size of the Philippines. 3 batteries (3 launchers each) of SPYDER. SPYDER is capable, but it is barely area air defense by today's standards with a range of 50 km. And 3 small batteries are basically negligible. According to many articles, even MANPADSes or autocannons are rare in the armed forces. So air defense is basically done by 0.5 cal machine guns.
I didn't dive deep into the ground forces but, looking shallowly, things look bad there too. I don't see any ATGMs beyond low numbers of TOW 2 variants (comically donated by the US in 2022). Tanks are non-existent and there are just 12 self-propelled guns. The light tank they are getting is not amphibious, which IMO is a bizarre choice for the Philippines.
Filipino Armed Forces is a glorified police force. Call this chauvinism but I don't think an armed forces that can't sink ships, shoot down aircraft or kill tanks in any real capacity is worth mentioning. Even Vietnam and Indonesia are extreme overmatches for the Philippines. Let alone PLA Southern Theater Command
