Just too late, traffic hold us up, to take decent pics of the Bronco and Wildcat.

The base is awkwardly situated on a peninsula and hard have a decent view of. Broncos were read from the wall overlooking the old ferry jetty behind the city hall in Cavite City; more Broncos should be stored here but these are usually obstructed by a berthed navy barge.
