Two more FA-50 fighter jets from South Korea arrived on Wednesday morning at the Philippine Air Force Harribon Hangar in Clark Airbase, Pampanga.
The latest batch completes the PAF acquisition of 12 FA-50 fighter jets.
The jets with tail numbers 011 and 012 are capable of carrying short range air to air missiles, air to surface missiles with 2-seat capacity and a length of 43 feet.
The PAF said that the fighter jets are on standby in case these are needed for operations in Marawi, where terrorist group Maute besieged key areas.
