The Chamsuri Class patrol craft was developed by Korea Tacoma Marine Industries. The boats first entered service with the Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) in the 1970s. The craft are built by Korea Tacoma Marine, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Hanjin Heavy Industries.

Chamsuri Class boats are also known as Patrol Killer Medium (PKM) craft. The boats were built in two batches known as the 201 series and the 301 series. In addition to the ROKN, the patrol boats are also in service with the Bangladesh Navy, Kazakhstan Navy and the Philippine Navy.

South Korea has also transferred seven patrol craft to the Philippine Navy. The first batch of five boats were delivered in 1995 and a second batch of two craft were transferred in 2006. The Philippine Navy boats are designated as the Tomas Batillo Class. These boats are deployed to protect the Malampaya natural gas platforms near Palawan.

080530-N-2296G-021 WESTERN PACIFIC, Philippines (May 30) – Philippines navy ship BRP Nicolas Mahusay (PG-116) crosses the bow of USS Ford (FFG 54), with support from United States Coast Guard Cutter Morgenthau during a vessel board, search, and seizure (VBSS) exercise.  Ford acted as a “suspect” ship with contraband, goods, and personnel.   Naval forces from both countries boarded and searched the ship “arresting” several smugglers played by Ford crewmembers.  The VBSS exercise is part of the Philippine phase of Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (CARAT) 2008. CARAT is an annual series of bilateral maritime training exercises between the United States and six Southeast Asia nations to build relationships and enhance the operational readiness of the participating forces.  Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 1st Class Dave Gordon (Released)

How new or old is this picture?  Lookis like PG116 lost its Forward 40mm gun and received the twin turret 20mm from the older Sea Killers.

@Sir Manokski my assumption is that the first photo might be prior to the PG116 upgrade. Also, the hull paint scheme looks similar to that of PG110 (around 1996).

Globalsecurity.com and kalasagnglahi.angelfire.com reported that PG116 was fitted with 20mm turret forward.
