Great Pics! Just curious, how were the LVTH6s transported to crow valley? Do all PMC V-150s have .50 cal HMGs mounted in the rear?

madami pa sanang pics but hirap mag upload.

may videos, ineedit pa nga lang- believe me, twas quite an experience to see all guns from a garand to a 105 of the LVT fire.  abangan nyo na lang.

the LVTs were transported via low boy trailers to CV; most V150s have been uparmed with the extra .50 HMG

 :shock:

Nasaan na yung mga Mack truck tractors at mga low boy trailers na nakuha ng AFP sa Clark Air Base? Mukhang rental yung nasa larawan. So if the AFP needs the tanks to be transported magre-rent pa?! Diyos mio. Logistics nightmare yun except if the owner of the rental transporter is a retired AFP officer na may ties sa AFP kaya hindi nire-repair yung sa AFP para palaging kumikita yung rental transporter ni retired general(?)!

Paano na lang kung may coup at kailangan yung transporter dahil may kalayuan yung sagupaan tapos yung may-ari ng rental ay kasabwat pala. E di kunwari sira yung truck-tractor niya?!

Kaya siguro madaling bumigay yung mga Scorpion tanks kasi self-propelled sila papunta sa encounter instead of being transported close to it. AFP, all teeth, no tails (or false teeth, no tails at all; or worse, decaying teeth, no tails ever)
PN according to Manokski:
"something gray with a side number on it that floats"
PAF according to Ramon J. Farolan:
"we are now basically a helicopter fleet"
PA according to drkula
"it is better to talk forever than fight forever"

The AFP and Seabeas low bouy flat beds could not handle the LVTs - too short and to light to load the 42 ton armor. Most are intended for tractors and the likes. We had to contact friends from USMC in okinawa on the local hauler they hired when they transported thier AAVP7 during last years Balikatan. The company was owned by a simple and soft spoken ilokano who had no military background.  The hauler crew had a lot of experience in loading and transporting them to crow valley. Thier was also a sense of patriotism on the guy when he said that they enjoyed transporting our armor than the USMC because it was thiers too as filipinos.

 :D  Nice photos!More V-300 FSV/APC,and light tank can further give our Marines added combat edge.
        Lesson's had been learned in the past AFP Mindanao offensive.The Marines need newer models of artillery to suppliment it's well worn M101 and Modelo 56 105mm artillery.
  But in the case of this Marine Ready Forces and it's target area of responsibilty in the National Capital Region. The V-300,V-150,the 106RCL JEEP/MMPV mount and the monstrous LVTH6 deserved  :grin:respect for the potential adversaries and pride for the Marine Ready Forces.
   But the tactical edge of the AFP in the Mindanao offensive is in the Air. The OV-10,SF-260TP,
MD-520MG and UH-1H.
  And the lone C-130 transport that rapidly transport supplies and troop reinforcement.We need more capable helicopters and COIN aircraft. :grin:
