Armed Forces of the Philippines
The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) (Filipino: Sandataháng Lakás ng Pilipinas; Spanish: Fuerzas Armadas de Filipinas) is composed of the Philippine Army, Philippine Navy and Philippine Air Force. The AFP is a volunteer force. In 2012, a senior AFP officer reported its manpower strength to be 125,000, of which 85,000 were in the Army and the rest in the Navy and Air Force. This figure matches closely with the IISS 2011 figure of 86,000 (Army), 24,000 (Navy), and 15,000 (Air Force). In 2012, the AFP Chief of Staff said that there had been no increase in the number of soldiers over a long period, and that the military aims to hire 20,000 troops in three-years. In 2011 the IISS listed reserves as 100,000 Army, 15,000 Navy, and 16,000 Air Force.
