Tiger Unit is the storied unit of PC anti-huk fighters during the 50s, where the unit was charged with defending Montalban, starring Romeo Vasquez as then Captain Fabian Ver including Joseph Riggets aka Rod Navarro. Typical kisskiss bangbang genre, with old tommy guns, carbines and garands. The Tiger Unit is bruited to have saved the anterior Rizal fields from Huk capture and prevented entry of the insurgents into Metro Manila. Year of Living Dangerously saw circa 60s fatigues in what is supposed to be pic time scened in the 80s.  FPJ played a constable in Walang Pagkalupig which is translated from "Always Outnumbered, Never Outfought".  I dont recall if Filipino troops and equipment/arms appeared in "Aguila", the FPJ and Christopher de Leon epic which saw WW2 scenes where Behn Cervantes, the fag writer director, plays a Huk Commander with whom FPJ allied himself against the Nips.  But FPJ was a Constable Officer fighting against the old insurgents and moro juramentados.

Ipaglaban mo Bayan Ko (The Obet Pagdanganan Story) starring Joel Torre, based on the life story of the Bulacan governor.  The people of Bulacan led by the governor (Joel Torre) blocked the convoy of Philippine Army APC and trucks full of troops coming from the north to "re-inforce" the rebel soldiers on the 1989 coup.

Also, the movie "Ang Mamatay Ng Dahil Sa iyo,"  starring Anthony Alonzo, bunch of military hardwares were used in this movie, although i didn't understand the movie, but you gotta have to respect the soldier, played by Anthony Alonzo, who risked losing his life in order to save his men. If my memory corrects me right, at one scene his wife made him chose between his family or his duty as a soldier.  Since he loves being a soldier, he chose duty.

I think one of the movies I like best is the movie titled, "Lt. Madarang Iginuhit Sa Sariling Dugo?" Edu Manzano is the leading actor in this movie.  This is the life story of Lt. Madarang from being a cadet at the PMA through his death at the hands of the rebels.

Tanong Lang:  Is there any movie about a PMA cadet who graduated as the "goat" in his class but became a good leader in the field? (Just like Gen. Patton)

He may have been dyslexic in mathematics and turnedback a year but Patton wasn't a goat.

Ok, my mistake. I guess I probably misunderstood the narrator when I was watching the history of the U.S. Military Academy through History Channel.

I've seen my share of campy Pinoy Action Flicks and Basta't Kasama kita. I have observed that here are some of the guns classified as "The One Gun to Blast them All"

Colt M1911A1 .45 - An FPJ, Rudy Fernandez and Lito Lapid Favorite

Colt .357 Magnum Revolver- Muslim .357. Enough said.

Colt/Elisco M16A1s- A fairly common rifle used by good guys,bad guys, their henchmen and the cops who came too late

Colyt/Elisco M16A1 with M203 - Judy Ann Santos blasting what looks like the ABS-CBN's sky patrol helicopter in the Basta't kasama kita series finale. Gabby Lopez will not be pleased

Why do a lot of Pinoy actors in old black and white movies shoot their tommy and grease guns sideways.  Inggit kaya sila sa Brits and their Sten?

Odd thing with these macho movies is that they have really outsize effects with their weaponry:

1911's fire 30 rounds without reloading.

Shotguns are accurate to 300 yds.

Full-auto bursts hit every bad guy.

Those who get hit dance and twitch around before falling.

40mm grenades make big fireballs and lots of dust, or big fireballs when they hit cars.

Pulling grenade pins out with their teeth (don't even try, unless you want your teeth pulled out)

--how about FPJ's "Kahit butas ng karayom papasukin ko" movie, there's a Simba APC that escorted FPJ's convoy, and I luv the scene wherein the FPJ's platoon (played by the stuntmans/local goons) performed "Silent Drill"....
