PIA : Navy to add more vessels in Eastern Mindanao
By Rudolf Ian G. Alama   //  Thursday 10th of May 2012

DAVAO CITY, May 10 (PIA) -- The Philippine Navy is planning to deploy two more naval assets at the Naval Forces Eastern Mindanao (NFEM).

Captain Robert Empedrad, NFEM deputy commander said yesterday during the Club 888 media forum at Marco Polo Davao, that among the planned additional vessels includes a large patrol ship and a patrol craft1.

NFEM’s area of jurisdiction covers the Eastern Mindanao area from the waters off Polloc in Maguindanao, Davao, Surigao, and up to Camiguin.

It has nine naval assets, the largest of which is the patrol ship BRP Magat Salamat (PS-20) while others are smaller but faster patrol crafts. The Magat Salamat is notable for being headed by Commander Luzviminda Camacho the first lady commanding officer of the Philippine Navy.

Empedrad said that the assets are sufficient enough to patrol the coasts of eastern Mindanao; most of the maritime problems involve piracy, poaching, illegal fishing, and human smuggling. For a year now, there has been no piracy incident reported.

Currently, they are planning to strengthen naval presence in Surigao with plans of putting up a naval detachment in Taganito, Surigao del Norte where New People’s Army guerrillas attacked several mining firms late last year.

Empedrad said that unlike areas in the West Philippine Sea where the country is embroiled in a dispute with China there are currently no border disputes between Indonesia who shares a common maritime border within the jurisdiction of NFEM.

He says that the Philippine Navy has built a good relationship with the Indonesian Navy and is conducting annual border patrol exercises under the Border Patrol Agreement signed by the two countries 36 years ago.

The first of the annual border patrol exercises2 was conducted last April 28 to May 3 participated by about 100 Philippine Navy personnel and the patrol ship Magat Salamat joined by the Indonesian patrol vessel KRI Sura along with 47 Indonesian Navy sailors and officers.

Aside from exercises with the Indonesian Navy, the NFEM will also be hosting the United States Navy-Philippine Navy “Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training” (CARAT) Exercise 2012 this coming June 28- July 9 in Glan, Sarangani Province. (RGA-PIA 11, Davao City)

Does anyone have this emblem on a patch or a sticker or a sheet of paper that can be scanned, for me?  Such an image will be easier to trace for a model decal than the slanted/skewed images here.

Thanks for the pictures and the comments! Any closeups of the guns? Any internal pictures?
One nice thing to note is that the 20mm guns are no longer the oerlikons. They are now the same 20mm carried by the peacocks.

I think you're looking for the emblem of the Patrol Force, which is where major surface combatants of the Philippine Navy is assigned.



Too small but I guess you can zoom it. This is the same logo you pointed out from the 1986 photo of BRP Andres Bonifacio in the other thread, although I'm not 100% sure...there seems to be some difference, although this is the present emblem.

You may search the other topics under "AFP Organization, Services and Units" specifically major warships. Here's one:



The emblems differ from each other, from the color scheme and sword design.
