Philippine Navy welcomes Po Hang-class corvette home
22 August 2019

Prior to its transfer, the vessel was equipped with additional air-conditioning compressor units on its superstructure to improve crew habitability and had installed new cranes that can deploy larger rigid-hull inflatable boats (RHIBs).

Conrado Yap is equipped with two Oto Melara 76 mm naval guns, and four (two twins) 40 mm cannons, equally distributed between its forward and aft sections.

The vessel is also armed with six (two triple) 324 mm torpedo tubes, located on the port and starboard sides and racks for up to 12 depth charges.

The corvette has been assigned to the Philippine Navy's Offshore Combat Force and will take on ASW patrols in the country's territorial waters, and exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

Navy to deploy BRP Conrado Yap in Palawan, Mindanao waters
By Priam Nepomuceno  August 29, 2019, 3:15 pm

https://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1079011

MANILA -- The waters of Palawan and Mindanao are the possible deployment areas for the newly-acquired BRP Conrado Yap (PS-39) Philippine Navy (PN) flag-officer-in-command, Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad said Wednesday.

Empedrad, in a press briefing, said the ship will be subjected first to an engine run test which will take the corvette all over the Philippines, he added.

"What we are going to do is to (first) subject the ship to an engine run test which will take the vessel all over the Philippines, we can order the BRP Conrado Yap to go to Palawan, Cebu, Mindanao and the eastern part of the country, in the Philippine Rise and then back," the PN chief added.

Once the test is completed, Empedrad said the PN leadership will decide on whether the ship will be deployed to Western Command area-of-operations or in the Mindanao area.

The Western Command is headquartered in Puerto Princesa, Palawan and covers the Kalayaan Island Group and parts of the West Philippine Sea.

Empedrad said the BRP Conrado Yap is an ideal ship to deploy in both areas due to its various automated systems, including its weapons, making it very accurate to use against surface threats, including small ones.

The BRP Conrado Yap is the former "Chungju" of the Republic of Korea Navy. Pohang-class corvettes, especially those designated as Flight II, are optimized for anti-submarine warfare missions.

The ship is armed with two 76mm Oto Melara automatic guns, two Oto Breda 40mm light cannons, depth-charge racks, and two triple torpedo tubes and surveillance systems like radar and sonar.

BRP Conrado Yap was formally turned over and commissioned to the PN last August 5 during short ceremonies at Jinhae Naval Base in Changwon City, South Korea.

The corvette and her escort, the BRP Davao Del Sur (LD-602) departed the South Korean facility last August 12 for their voyage home which ended early morning of August 18. (PNA)

BRP Conrado Yap (PS-39), the Philippine Navy’s (PN) most powerful warship to date, is off to Palawan to patrol the country’s maritime waters and secure the territorial seas in the West Philippine Sea (WPS).

It was in late August of this year when Empedrad announced that BRP Conrado Yap would make a tour across the country for its engine run test after it was received by the Philippine government as a donation from South Korea.

Bottom-line: The PS-39 was not the first PN ship to detect a submarine

1st in PH Navy history: BRP Conrado Yap detects US submarine in Palawan
Published January 16, 2020, 11:56 AM

https://news.mb.com.ph/2020/01/16/1st-in-ph-navy-history-brp-conrado-yap-detects-us-submarine-in-palawan/

BRP Conrado Yap, a Philippine Navy (PN) corvette, detected a United States submarine that was submerged in the waters of Palawan in November 2019, in what was regarded as the first-ever submarine detection in the 121-year history of the country’s naval warfare service.

This was bared by no less than Navy Flag Officer in Command (FOIC), Vice Admiral Robert Empedrad during an interview with the media at the Naval Bonifacio Station in Taguig City on Wednesday night.

“The BRP Conrado Yap was able to detect a submarine while it was travelling in Palawan. That was the first time that it happened to our navy,” Empedrad said.

The Navy Chief said the crew manning the BRP Conrado Yap was on its way to Zamboanga for a “show the flag” mission, a naval event where a ship displays the flag of its country as an expression of patriotic pride, when it detected the American submarine.

Although Empedrad described the detection as “exciting,” he admitted that it is a big challenge for them.
 
“We don’t know what to do with it, it’s only a detection. What will happen in the near future? What are the doctrines involved here? Can you immediately fire a torpedo to destroy submarines? We have a lot of new capabilities that we didn’t have in our fleet before. Modernizing our navy is very challenging indeed,” The Navy Chief said.

“Sabi ko nga, kung tanggalin mo ‘yung dagat sa Pilipinas baka makakita ka ng 50 submarines sa paligid natin (If you remove all the water in the Philippines, you might see around 50 submarines around us),” he added.

Empedrad said they are continuously monitoring the submarine.
