Marcos Loyalists ang mga rebelde nito. Of course, karamihan taga Norte.

There was a story that came out in the Army circles that during the 1990 coup, an infantryman fired an anti-tank rocket (or was it a 90-RR?) on an APC. One of the casualties inside the APC was his brother.

Chowchow,

Try looking for the footage of a soldier firing a 90-RR either in Sta. Ana or Sta. Mesa during the 1987 coup. The news said that the shell hit and damaged a house in Marikina. Fortunately, nobody was inside the house.

BTW, the soldier with the FAL reminds me of a band member of VST and Company.:supergrin:

Naka FAL, hanep. Baka designated marksman yata . Noon dati walang scopes ang snipers.

I think that incident happened in CAmp Aguinaldo when the rebels were assaulting the camp. The brother was in an LVT and teh other was manning a 90 RR or a 75 MM cannon.

If I remember the old footages right, Gringo carried a strange-looking M-14 with a short barrel and a folding stock slung on one shoulder and a 9mm Browning Hi-Power on a chest holster.

Yup, the guy with the FN rifle is none other than Val Sotto of VST & Co. Jokes lang! He does look like him though, ha-ha!

Yup, the wall where the LVT broke through was the part near temple drive, just about the area where you have the make shift u-turn slot.

Sir,

The 1987 GMA coup attempt was relatively bloodless, the key players were the late Arturo Tolentino and a certain General? Canlas.

The "bloodier" coup attempt happened in 1989 involving Gringo et al. The RAM boys almost won as they were able to muster considerable support from a lot of the military groups including the airforce. Ex president Cory Aquino was even said to have "hidden under her bed" (late Louie Beltran).
I think the projectile which hit the house in marikina came from the rockets fired from the planes which were bombing the camps. I was able to watch them from our roof, there were indeed american F4 phantoms involved. The intervention of the American airforces turned the favor back to the government's side. It was during this time that then general Biazon gave the "back to barracks" order to the rebels inside Camp Aguinaldo.

A lot of areas in the Metro were considered War Zones - The Makati Commercial Business District (displaced foriegn tourists, pock marked atrium building, pacific star among others), QC - white plains, camp Aguinaldo, Camelot Hotel, EDSA - San Juan. We had almost a month long vacation from school because of this.

Strangely enough, buses continued to ply the Monumento-Baclaran route even when as Camp Aguinaldo was being bombed. Where they were re-routed, i don't know. But I was at the corner of Munoz and Roosevelt Ave. that morning and the bus conductors were even shouting:

"O, YUNG MANUNOOD NG GIYERA D'YAN, SAKAY NA, SAKAY NA!!"
