PHIBLEX 33 (2016): US Military Armoured Fighting Vehicles in Subic
US Military Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFV) manned by US Marines roll pass the iconic Spanish Gate of the Subic Bay Freeport on the second day of the annual Philippines-US amphibious landing exercise (PHIBLEX) 2016 which was launched and will run thru Oct. 12, 2016.
Subic Bay was host to a US Naval Base until 1992 when the Philippine Senate rejected a treaty that would have extended the presence of US Military Bases in the country. Current Philippine President Rodrigo R. Duterte has announced that Phiblex 2016 would be the last joint military exercise between US and Ph Military under his term as president.
