BRP Bagobo (AT-293) - ex-US LCU Mk.6
« on: May 04, 2017, 01:55:54 AM »
The oldest Landing Craft - Utilities in the fleet are ex-US Navy Mk.6 LCUs. Three of these World War II-era boats are currently in service: BRP Tausug (AT-295), BRP Bagobo (AT-293), BRP Subanon (AT-291). Though equally old as its sisterships, the BRP Tausug was a relatively new addition to the roster as it was recommissioned from the navy's strategic reserves in 2009.

Philippine Naval gunboats are anchored on the waters off Basilan island seen in the background on Februay 9, 2009.  Two gunmen were killed as soldiers backed by helicopter gunships attacked the kidnappers of three teachers abducted in the southern Philippines, the military said. Two bodies, along with two Garand rifles, assorted grenades and ammunition, were found after Marines clashed with the kidnappers in a forested area near Akbar town on the southern island of Basilan, military officials said.

Another modification in next year’s religious activity is the use of another sea vessel to transport the images of the Sto. Niño and the Our Lady of Guadalupe back to Cebu City by sea, instead of the yacht owned by the family of the late Ernesto Ouano, which was traditionally used as the “galleon” of the Child Jesus for about three decades.
Fr. Aladdin Luzon, OSA, director of the Safety, Security, and Peace and Order Committee of the Fiesta Señor, said they decided to give other owners of sea vessels the chance to accommodate the sacred images during the fluvial procession.

BRP Bagobo AT-293 of the Philippine Navy was chosen to transport the images of the Sto. Niño and the Our Lady of Guadalupe in next year’s fluvial procession.
The vessel has a capacity of 150 persons. Aladdin Luzon said among those who will be allowed to board the vessel are Archbishop Palma, priests, the present and former Hermano and Hermana Mayores, and men dressed as Spanish soldiers who will take part in the reenactment of the first Catholic Mass, baptism, and wedding that follows after the fluvial procession.
