In recent developments where the Russians and Filipinos begin to learn and improve their relationships altogether, it is also worthy of discussing possible Russian arms options based on the potential and likely to get them.
Russian weapons and systems are somewhat different in formats and ecosystems than those in the west. Similarly, there are different ways in which the equipment is maintained and operated. These are the result of the different paths that are carried out by two countries during cold war in which the standards on weapons systems differ in these countries where systems are changing as part of arm race in two countries. At present, both countries and allies dependent on them use either the NATO-based armor or the Russian, Eastern Weapon Center, with different countries varying this type of weapon systems with well-known examples of India, Malaysia and Indonesia. In this discussion, it refers to military weapons that Russia may offer in the Philippines where the downsides will come in the picture.
