BRP Bagong Silang (PG-104) - Kagitingan class
« on: April 20, 2010, 10:26:50 AM »
I suspect that this is a type, and it really means PG-140 (BRP Emilio Aguinaldo) . . . but on the off chance that it isn't . . .

PG 102 pictures from the late LT. Antonio A. Ortega Jr PN

Maybe reviving her - they did bring the Humabon and the PCE's back from the stricken list.

CPIC : Bolstering the Fleet
(taken from the NAVAL JOURNAL Vol1 No.1 June 1983.pp 7-8)

Like most navies of the world, the Philippine Navy concentrates on the protection of the country's territorial waters.  With neither the mandate nor the means to range the world's oceans like the navies of the superpowers, the PN by choice and necessity limits itself to the country's boundaries.

Considering its mission and the country's geography, the PN has for long felt the need for a type of patrolship that is small but powerful, fast and aefficient that can range the open sea and penetrate shallow waters.The PN found thus suitable vessel: the Coastal Patrol and Interdiction Craft (CPIC). Not only does the CPIC posess the desired qualities , it is a type of ship for which the PN has already developed the technological capability to build.

In 1979, the Naval Shipyard at Naval Base Cavite (NBC) buiilt its first CPIC, PG-102 or the BRP BAGONG LAKAS. This patrol craft soon demonstrated its sea and combat worthiness in operations in the south where it stopped or neutralized enemy waterborne movements.  Its manueverability and high speed make it most suitable for operations in moderate to rough seas, in coastal patrol, anti-smuggling, and other law-enforcement activities of the PN.

Since then the other two CPICs have been built with one of them, PG-104 or  BRP BAGONG SILANG to be commisioned on June 21 1983, 2 days before Navy Day.

The latest CPIC to be built has just about the same specifications of its sister ships.  THe hull is semi planing type with  very fine entry for wasy "driving" and minimum pounding.  It has an appreciable flare, giving a good reserve of forward buoyancy and deflection of solid-water and spray.  The midbody is round and has a flat after plane and a slug to give good running characteristics and speed.

Contributing to the CPICs very fine performance is its excellent design where austerity and simplicity are maintained throughout. hull construction is such that structural continuity of the hull girder is preserved so that it can best  resist sea loadings. The main deck is watertight from stem to stern and to shell. Pilothouse steering and propulsion controls  are permitted to arrange one-man controls. Internal and external communications facilities are installed adjacent to the pilot house and make them readily accessible  to the Officer on Watch.  the gunfire control systems detects, acquires, tracks, and engages designated air and surface targets.

The PN now has four CPICs.  The first, PG-101 or BRP KAGITINGAN served as the prototype.  This was followed by PG-102, BRP BAGONG LAKAS, PG-103, BRP KATATAGAN, which was built by the Philippine Dockyards Corporation, and PG-104, BRP BAGONG SILANG.....

Where the the Radars, fire control system and other equipment? Was it it stripped before it was put in the grave yard...?

Historically, NAVY DAY 1983 PG-104 was commissioned along with BRP YAKAL AD-617 and BRP PAG-IBIG BU-81.

Navy boats readied for Pope visit
Philippine Daily Inquirer 11:02 AM | Sunday, November 16th, 2014

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines—At the height of military action in Sulu and Basilan, five Philippine Navy vessels on Thursday left this city for repairs and training in preparation for next year’s five-day visit of Pope Francis.

Navy Capt. Giovanni Carlo Bacordo, deputy commander for Fleet Operations of Naval Forces Western Mindanao (NFWM), said the navy vessels will undergo repairs after being deployed to Mindanao for more than a year.

“Its personnel will undergo training, and as soon as they complete these requirements, they will be used to augment security of the Papal visit,” Bacordo said.

The vessels—the BRP Bagong Silang, BRP Leopoldo Regis, Diesel Fast (DF) 320, 322 and 323—along with 90 crew and officers were on their way to Cavite City.

Pope Francis is scheduled to visit Manila and typhoon-ravaged Tacloban City from Jan. 15 to 19.

“This is a routine rotation as part of an annual navy maintenance and training cycle, so when they pull out ships there are replacements,” Guerrero said.
