The other countries with the worst militaries, as indicated by the website are Costa Rica, Iraq, North Korea, Eritrea, Nigeria, Philippines, Tajikistan, Mongolia, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan.

According to Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr., the Aquino administration has already completed 56 modernization projects for the Armed Forces and from the very beginning, the administration knows the importance of AFP modernization, he added.

President Benigno Aquino III promised to overhaul the Armed Forces with $1.7 billion and the Congress has passed a bill appropriating $2 billion for the exertion.

Aquino admin some big-ticket contributions and upcoming military hardware for the AFP modernization are:

The Philippines is maybe too far to achieve a credible defense posture, but it will definitely no longer one of the world’s worst armed forces in the next coming years.



  1. And some say idiotic remarks that this administration has done nothing for the defense of our motherland.

  2. If we talk about military hardware, yes we are definitely one of the worst armed forces. But if we take into consideration the combat experience and knowhow of our military personnel, I believe we are much better than most.

  3. paano naging worst yung saudi arabia e mayron nga silang f-16? at yung north korea e sangkatutak ang russian made missile ng mga yan may nuclear weapons pa

  4. What is the use of having modern hardware if you can’t beat even the local bandits like the npa, abu sayaf, etc?! Remove first the corrupt military and police officials so that we could finally end the bandit/rebel groups around the country!

    • Yong katwiran mo wala din yan pinagkaiba sa hayaan mo na lng maging tarantado yong anak mo kasi di mo kayang kontrolin kaya wala ka nang gagawin improvement.

  5. Saan kaya ako dapat magbigay nd credit dito?
