BRP Subanon (AT-291) - ex-US LCU Mk.6
« on: May 11, 2017, 07:16:33 PM »
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.
