When I was still a 'clerk' (4th year post-graduate), I use to see a lot of this type of landing craft in Tondo, Manila. They were used by big fishing companies to ferry their catch from big fishing vessels in the ocean to shore. All were painted with orange anti-rust paint. Everytime I saw them, I couldn't help but think whether the big fishing companies had more of the type than PN or if in fact PN sold them the type as scrap in an auction.

           
PN according to Manokski:
"something gray with a side number on it that floats"
PAF according to Ramon J. Farolan:
"we are now basically a helicopter fleet"
PA according to drkula
"it is better to talk forever than fight forever"

I think what you are talking about are locally manufactured landing crafts. I know a chinese-filipino family who produces such LCV. I hope it can be developed. Anyway, $25,000 is really a good buy. It can be fitted with with 50 caliber multi-purpose guns

Are they still manufacturing these craft?

It couldn't be. See, at the right angle when the sun was up, you could actually still read the numbers of the landing crafts by their sides and on spots where the orange paint was chipped, you could see the original haze gray paint. They must have been either USN or PN surplus.

As for the locally-produced LCV, I have no doubt somebody in the Philippines has seen the potential of the craft. The manufacturer must have been able to reverse-engineer a surplus LCV. Who knows, it could be one of the military surplus LCV's I used to see at Dagat-Dagatan.  Afterall, I'm talking about at least a decade ago when I last saw those LCV's.

Yes, they are still building it. I think their fabrication facility is in Quezon Province. Mauban? His granson is a hog raiser and used to transport his herds to Cebu with the their own made landing crafts (main reason is only a few shipping comapany wants to transport these smelly livestock). I think their surname is Lim. Yeah, it is similar to the one in Dagat-Dagatan, Navotas.

I think I saw those passing by Smokey Mountain going to Navotas. But if ever we make one better make improvements as what the Sri Lankans are doing, at 20 knots!

http://www.naval-technology.com/contractors/patrol/colombo/colombo5.html

FAST LANDING CRAFT

This is a unique design, with the landing craft being able to achieve speeds in excess of 20 knots. The 21m fast landing craft was designed to transport armoured vehicles and troops with a deck load of 5t. This craft is capable of being used for military operations and also to attend to rescue operations in disaster situations. The craft is powered by twin MAN main engines, each developing 588kW, driving HAMILTON water jets.

Hmm, these are good buys if you ask me. for the price quoted the Navy can opt to replace its engines to make it perform better and stave off the problem of the availability of parts in the market.
