Abstract : With the passage of its Modernization Bill, the Armed Forces of the Philippines will embark on planning for new defense equipment acquisitions. A National Defense Strategy that considers not only potential threats but also a net military assessment of its allies and potential enemies, a hierarchy of national interests, a time frame for its military strategy vis a vis the domestic insurgency, among others, will facilitate strategic planning, force development and capability determination. Securing public support and establishing credibility are challenges that leaders must face. There are lessons from other countries defense models.
