The Philippine Air Force (PAF), in the latest edition of its official publication, has said that National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana has signed the Acquisition Decision Memorandum for the Multi Role Fighter Aircraft and Munition Project.

“The Command is persistent in pushing for modernization with the signing of the Acquisition Decision Memorandum for the Multi Role Fighter Aircraft and Munition Project by the Secretary of National Defense,” PAF said.

In December 2019, Secretary Lorenzana said PAF was evaluating two platforms. “One of the aircraft being evaluated is from Sweden and the other is the American F-16,” Secretary Lorenzana said.
