PN readies BRP Tarlac for first port call to Russia

MANILA -- The Philippine Navy (PN) is currently preparing BRP Tarlac (LD-601), one of the two strategic sealift vessels in its fleet, for its first ever port visit to Vladivostok, Russia.

The ship is set to leave on Sept. 17, PN spokesperson Commodore Jonathan Zata told the Philippine News Agency Thursday.

Preparations for the ship's port visit to Russia include stocking of provisions like fuel, oil, lubricants and sundries needed for the voyage.

BRP Tarlac will sail alone and Zata said the voyage from the Philippines to Vladivostok, Russia will take "eight to 10 days."

He added that BRP Tarlac's port visit will last five days.

The scheduled PN port call is in reciprocation of the visit of Russian warships in Manila last June and those of last year, Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana earlier said.

The Tarlac-class SSVs are the largest PN ships in service as of this posting.

These vessels have an overall length of 120 meters, breadth of 21 meters, and draft of five meters and can carry a payload of 2,800 tons.

Both have a cruising speed of 13 knots and maximum speed of 16 knots and a minimum operating range of 7,500 nautical miles.

The SSVs can carry 500 troops, two rigid-hull inflatable boats, two landing craft units and three helicopters. (PNA)

Army sends-off 1st Brigade Combat Team to Sulu

https://www.facebook.com/PhilippineArmy2028/posts/2277653289149883

FORT BONIFACIO, Metro Manila – The Philippine Army sends-off its 1st Brigade Combat Team (1BCT) to Jolo, Sulu on Friday, May 31, 2019, at Pier 13, South Harbor, Manila.

The Philippine Navy's strategic sealift vessel BRP Tarlac will transport the 1BCT from Manila to Sulu, where they will be deployed under the Western Mindanao Command's area of responsibility. The 1BCT’s deployment intends to help address the threat of local terrorist groups in the island as well as to fulfill the force requirements of the newly activated 11th Infantry "Alakdan" Division.

The 1BCT is the Army’s contingency force that is capable to address conventional, unconventional, and asymmetric threats. Its units include an Intelligence Unit, Combat Engineer Company, Aviation, EOD Platoon, 1st Air Defense Artillery Battery, among others.

Since its creation in December 2018, the brigade has participated in the recently concluded SALAKNIB and BALIKATAN exercises with the United States Pacific Command.

"The men and women of the 1BCT will be deployed in Sulu to ensure peace and security which is not only felt in the island but also of the entire country as well. They are men and women of action and we commend them for going about their mission without much fanfare, an attitude they carry even beyond their service in the military," said Lt. Col. Ramon Zagala, the Army spokesperson.

“For years, our peacekeeping efforts have hindered these groups from spreading more destruction beyond that area. But we should remain determined in sustaining our internal operations and safeguarding the security of our territories. Let us preserve our hard-earned gains for the peace and development in the Mindanao Region,” said Maj. Gen. Jesus B. Sarsagat, Army Chief of Staff
