This boat is apparently in good enough condition to take part in CARAT exercises last year.

ZAMBOANGA CITY—American and Filipino sailors yesterday started another antiterror training, this time under the Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (Carat) 2007.

“Take care of each other and make safety your number one priority,” US Navy Rear Admiral William Burke, commander of Task Force 73 of the Western Pacific Logistics Group, said before some 2,000 US and Filipino sailors here during the opening ceremonies, which was also attended by US Ambassador Kristie Kenney.

The week-long exercise will be participated in by three US naval warships—USS Harpers Ferry, USS Ford and USS Jarrett.

The Philippine Navy will use the BRP Artemio Ricarte, BRP Gen. Mariano Alvarez, BRP Bagobo and BRP Quezon during the exercises, in addition to three Navy Islanders and helicopters.

Burke said that during the exercises, which will be held in the waters of Basilan, Zamboanga and Sulu, US and Filipino sailors will learn “higher level” of combating terror.

“Each of our Navy sailors and marines will share practical skills in several tactical areas like maritime interdiction and surveillance, port and sea search and seizure operation, tactical information sharing, amphibious operation and forced protection,” Burke said.

Commodore Feliciano Angue, of the Philippine Navy, said what Burke meant about higher level was that the exercises will focus on night operations.

“It’s more challenging now,” he said adding that previous exercises focused on day operations.

Burke said aside from terrorism, the joint exercises were also aimed at strengthening the skills of US and Filipino forces against transnational threats like piracy, human and drug trafficking and smuggling.

The Navy's 1st batch of LCU I believe was LCU-287 and LCU-288. Both are unnnamed, they are only known by Bow number.

Both where docked near the baradero at Calle Marino. (If you are in Cavite you won't missed that baradero once you cross the bridge you'll se this boats.

OT they are now decommissioned.

Navy Landing Craft Rescues Downed Helicopter in Basilan
August 19 , 2007

A Navy Landing Craft Utility AT 293 conducted rescue operations to the crashed Air Force MG 520 helicopter gunship east of Amoyloi Reef in Tipo Tipo, Basilan yesterday.

In a report to the Navy Chief Vice Admiral Rogelio Calunsag, Naval Task Force 61 Commander, Captain Edgar Abogado said that while AT 293 was conducting naval blockade in support to Joint Task Force Thunder ground operations at 4:45 p.m. yesterday, the crew noticed that an MG 520 helicopter crashed at vicinity 200 yards east of Amoyloi Reef in southern Basilan.

The ship’s skipper, Lieutenant Commander Hilario Cesista, immediately dispatched the attached speedboats with Naval Special Operations personnel to conduct rescue operations.  With the direction of AT 293 skipper, the team was able to retrieve the pilot and the lifeless body of the co-pilot.  After retrieving the personal belongings of the pilot and co-pilot, the aircrew was ferried to Zamboanga City.

Navy Chief Vice Admiral Calunsag commended the rescue effort of the ship’s crew and further praised them for keeping a vigilant watch.

Philippine Naval gunboats are anchored on the waters off Basilan island seen in the background on Februay 9, 2009. Two gunmen were killed as soldiers backed by helicopter gunships attacked the kidnappers of three teachers abducted in the southern Philippines, the military said. Two bodies, along with two Garand rifles, assorted grenades and ammunition, were found after Marines clashed with the kidnappers in a forested area near Akbar town on the southern island of Basilan, military officials said.

Finally . . . a full length view.


Picture and quote from GettyImages.

This looks like a Landing Craft Tank (LCT) Mk. 6 . . . which was redesignated "Landing Craft Utility" in '56

=== ~~~ ===

From: http://www.navsource.org/archives/10/18/18idx.htm

LCTs were built in two models. The MK5 was 112 foot, 32 feet 9 inches in length with a beam 32 feet, a displacement of 286 tons and a crew of 13. The MK5 had a bow ramp only in contrast to the MK6 which had both a bow and stern ramp and was 119 feet long with a beam of 32 feet and a displacement of 284 tons with a crew of 12. LCTs were the Navys all purpose general duty vessel. Besides carrying tanks ashore they were used for many different purposes. Some were converted and equiped with guns, others with rockets, while still others served as minesweepers. 26 MK5s were designated LCT(A), armored. Armor was added to these LCTs to allow them to go into the Normandy beachhead with the fire power of two tanks. At wars end all MK5s were disposed of while the MK6s were redesignated as Utility Landing Ship LSU in 1949 and redesignated Landing Craft Utility LCU, 15 April 1956.
