Success Stories. The early years of the program ushered in several success stories in the AFPs drive to provide a medium for the development of the industry while meeting its basic requirements for materiel. Notable among the industries developed in line with the SRDP Program were:

. . .

There were a total of 15 corporations registered as members of the Philippine Defense Industries. These companies were producing materiel for the Armed Forces of the Philippines, from Combat Rations to Track Assemblies, and from small arms ammunition, radio sets, to Assault Rifles.

Rare interior shot of the defunct Delta Motors Corporation Manufacturing Plant:



Manila, Philippines.
At Toyota's Philippine franchisee, a mechanic operates a stamp press. By 1974, they were making components for the car locally.
