Navy Honors Contingent to Malaysian Exhibit
 
LIEUTENANT COLONEL EDGARD A AREVALO PN(M)
Director, Naval Public Affairs Office


The Philippine Navy accords honors today, 22 December 2009 to the contingent that participated in the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibit (LIMA) in Malaysia.

Naval Task Group LIMA 09 comprised of officers, crew, and some 289 Sailors and Marines arrived in the Philippines yesterday after a month-long mission in Malaysia and Singapore. Two Navy vessels- BRP Quezon (PS 70), a patrol vessel and BRP Dagupan City (LC 551), a logistics ship, participated in the LIMA Exhibit 2009 held from 01-05 December 2009 that showcased the latest in aerospace technology from private industries and manufacturers.

The Exhibit also became a venue among participating navies to affirm their commitment to peace and security. According to Vice Admiral Ferdinand S Golez, the Exhibit was an opportunity for the Philippine Navy to strengthen its cooperation with foreign counterparts, especially among Asian navies.

The Navy also took advantage of the activity to conduct an overseas training cruise for students from the Naval Education and Training Command and the Fleet Training Center. Students and crew of both ships also availed of training facilities at the Royal Malaysian Naval Base in Lumut and observed how the Maritime Information Fusion Center operates during the port visit to Singapore. The trip which covered a distance of 3,854 nautical miles included passing through the equator which is considered a highlight in one’s naval career. Both ships departed Palawan for Langkawi on 23 November 2009.

The LIMA mission headed by Capt Albert Mogol PN (GSC), Commander, Task Group LIMA is among the various international engagements of the Philippine Navy in strengthening its ties among its foreign counterparts. Every year, the Philippine Navy participates in a number of exercises that tests its interoperability in fighting terrorism and security threats in the region.

Looking at the shade they placed onboard, wouldn't it be better if they converted it to this model?

I have to admit it is a wonderful idea and it can accomodate 3 CUH compared with the present situation where the helipad is placed at the back of the bridge.

With limited heavy airlift and sealift capability, is it really important to make it a heli-flatform for the CUH?

We are an archipelago so no problem sa mga HELO kasi bawat province naman has camps (AFP/PNP) capable of staging helos.

With those heli-flatform it would be easy to pick-up troops and deploy farther inland. Same with supplies and it double up as cover from rain and the sun.

When covered, it could bring in more passengers when turned into an evacuation ship.

does it mean that before she was BRP Dagupan City, she was formerly known as BRP Cagayan de Oro City?
