The U.S. gave probably hundreds of dismantled T-28 to the Philippine government. The Philippine air force (PAF) contracted Philippine Airlines to make them to flying condition. PAF made them weaponized fitted heavy machines and rocket launches to fight the insurgents, etc. It killed lots of pilots diving to targets they couldn't pull up the stick too heavy to fly, T-28 was not meant for fighting after all.
