MANILA, Philippines — BRP Andres Bonifacio, the Philippine Navy's newest ship, arrived early Friday from California, where it underwent sea trials before joining the Philippine Fleet.

The ship, a former US Coast Guard high endurance cutter, stopped at Honolulu, Hawaii in November.

US Ambassador to the Philippines Sung Kim congratulated the Philippine Navy on the newest addition to the fleet.

He said the ship will increase the Navy's presence in Philippine territorial waters. 

The frigate is the third Hamilton-class USCG ship to join the Philippine Navy. It joins BRP Gregorio Del Pilar and BRP Ramon Alcaraz in the Philippine Fleet.

The Bonifacio is armed with a 76-mm Oto-Melara auto-cannon and has a cruising speed of 29 knots.

It was decommissioned by the US in early 2016, and formally received by the Philippines on July 21, 2016.

The frigate left the US Coast Guard base in Alameda, California on November 1 for its voyage to the Philippines.

  1. This is much much better than the WW2 vintage ships of PN. I hope they would retire that soon.
