The first of two amphibious ships on order for the Philippine Navy is being prepared for sea trials. The ships will be delivered to the Philippine government without weapons.

The first strategic sealift vessel (SSV) on order for the Philippine Navy (PN) is being prepared for its first sea trials, PT PAL executives told IHS Jane's during a tour of the company's shipyard in Surabaya on 8 March.

The 123 m vessel, which will be commissioned as BRP Tarlac with pennant number 601, is the first of two landing platform dock (LPD)-like vessels procured under a contract worth USD92 million signed in June 2014 between PT PAL and the Philippine government.
