โ€œWith the acquisition of these light tanks, we invest not only in state-of-the-art technology but also in the safety and welfare of our brave men and women, arming them with the means to defend our country and protect the people,โ€ he said.

Palafox stated that this reaffirms the strong will of the Army to protect the people and defend the territory from evolving threats.

โ€œThese newly-acquired armored assets demonstrate our dedication to the defense and security of our country. In fact, they represent the tenacity and might of the Philippine Army as well as the entire Armed Forces of the Philippines,โ€ he said.

Armor Division likewise opened its newly-renovated Armor Museum, Mess Hall and new Maintenance Depot.

โ€œWithout a doubt, the Armor Mess Hall will serve as a haven of solace and sustenance, a place where the responsibilities of duty are lessened and the ties of camaraderie are reinforced. In a similar manner, this Armor Museum will undoubtedly serve as a beacon of knowledge and inspiration for future generations,โ€ Palafox explained.

The museum features accomplishments and stories of unwavering acts of duty, heroism and bravery of Armor personnel throughout history. (PIA 3)
