    • @Andrew, the Philippines builds a lot of ships, but they don’t build warships. I think in the long term they would have been better off, if they had built locally, but apparently Austal priced themselves out of the game, and the Philippine Navy seems happy with their S. Korean made light frigates. Meanwhile the Philippine CG got Cutters on very favorable terms from Japan, so don’t see much growth in Philippine military vessel construction.
