Navy takes delivery of BRP Conrado Yap, now the PH fleet’s ‘most powerful ship’
Updated August 6, 2019, 7:02 PM
By Martin Sadongdong

BRP Conrado Yap (PS-39), an ex-Pohang-class Corvette (a small warship) from South Korea, is expected to boost the capability and firepower of the Philippine Navy (PN) after it was formally received by navy officials and commissioned into service in a hand-over ceremony at Jinhae Naval Base in Changwon, South Korea.

In a statement, the Philippine Navy said Department of National Defense (DND) Assistant Secretary for Logistics and Acquisition Jesus Rey Avila signed the transfer documents together with his South Korean counterpart Logistics Management Administrator Kim Soo Sam on Monday.

Navy spokesperson Captain Jonathan Zata described BRP Conrado Yap as the “most powerful ship” in the Navy’s current fleet inventory and the first corvette of the Navy.

BRP Conrado Yap is a former Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) Pohang-class corvette Chungju (PCC-762) which was commissioned with the ROKN in 1987 and served until 2016.

The Peacocks have always been referred to as "OPVs".

Ship terms are funny . . . and Navy-centric. One navy's corvette is another's frigate

No National Flag at the stern and Navy Jack in front?

....sunset, Manoks. What time was sunset yesterday? And it's according to daily weather report (Plan of the Day info). It goes up again during morning colors. Don't know much about PN watch standing SOP, but OODs and watch standers get in trouble more during these time frames. Sunrise means all weather lights out, right pennants go up or down (CO onboard or not onboard). Sunset, evening colors (go down), pennants again and lights on. And no reinventing the verbiage, there's also a standard on how to announce on the 1MC. Sometimes the problem is with the JOOD (Junior OOD), they make mistakes and it's heard by everyone including the other ships next to you. Make an embarrassing mistake and you both pay, stuck on balls to 4 for months when announcements are not that frequent. It's been a habit to find out who is the JOOD with me (good, easy day, iffy, you better watch him/ her). It's a matter of pride not to make mistakes.

“I think the South Korean government is thinking of donating two more of this Pohang-class... They’re thinking of two,” Lorenzana said in his speech during the welcome ceremony of BRP Conrado Yap.

A welcome ceremony was held at Pier 13 in Manila South Harbor for the BRP Conrado Yap (PS39), which will boost the Philippine Navy’s capability in patrolling the maritime domain.

According to Lorenzana, the Pohang-class corvette will guard the Philippines’ maritime territory and protect the nation’s interest.

Donated Filipino corvette arrives from South Korea
August 20, 2019

Formerly known as ROK Navy Pohang-class corvette Chungju (PCC-762), the ship was officially handed over and commissioned into Philippine Navy service in a ceremony in Jinhae on August 5.

BRP Conrado Yap arrived at South Harbor, Manila, together with the 300-man Philippine contingent aboard BRP Davao Del Sur (LD602) after its historic port visit to Vladivostok, Russia.

As the newest warship arrived home, Philippine news outlets reported that South Korea could donate an additional two corvettes from the class to the country.
