BRP Pangasinan, she's still the mainstay of the Navy.

When I was 3 years old my mother use to bring me aboardship to visit my father. Slept in the afternoon in my father's bunk, drink chocolait in the Ship store, wait on deck as my father attends for duty and even stroll around with him in the Ship's stern.

He has a lot of pictures aboardship (ie travelling in Bicol with Mayon as background and crew pictures with ET3 Del Rosario and other officers and men of PS31).

She's still a beauty afterall these years.

I am already 36 and I was only 3 when I last went aboard her to visit my father. My fondest memories are sleeping in his bunk and drinking Magnolia Chocovim (now Chocolait) in the Ships store.

Do you know why it has three Navigation radars over the bridge? The others only have two in addition to the the main surface search radar on the main mast.

Also - does it seem like the Sultan Kudarat and the other vessel has bigger radars on the top of the mast than the Pangasinan? Different radars I suppose?

That, I have to ask the grizzled veteran of the Jolo Campaign - my father.

As of the moment I am speaking with my father (on the phone). Those 3 radars are for:
1. Surface Radar
2. Air Detection Radar
3. Back-up (in case one fails)

Now on the otherhand where you see the "K" formerly was the placement of the Submarine Warfare Equipment but now it was change to a 50 caliber mg emplacement.

I was amaze also to know that the ship has a CIC. Which is good.

 :thumbsup:

Firenzi (an active duty merchant marine), pointed out that current regulations require two surface search radars for navigation. See here:

http://www.timawa.net/forum/index.php?topic=15917.msg167561#msg167561

The two radars are reportedly set for detection at different ranges, so that it can navigate safely. So all three sets should be used.
