ex-ROK LCU-78
« on: November 09, 2016, 07:56:15 PM »
On the 30th of May, 2015, a Mulkae class LCU from South Korea, that had been donated to the Philippines in June 2014, arrived at the Cavite Naval Yard where it was slated to be refurbished. The Mulkae — which translates to “fur seal” — is the South Korean version of the US LCU 1610, of which six were built from 1979 to 1981. The Mulkae donated to the Philippines, designated LCU 78, entered South Korean service in 1981. As of writing the ship’s Philippine designation remains unclear.

How come I have a feeling that this hull will end up rusting floating by the pier like the rest of the old LSTs.  :'(

by way of shoulder tapped, "it took us time to transfer this vessel from ROK to PH... during said interval, ROK did not take care of her since it was technically owned already by PH... when it finally arrived here, the damage cause by elements was already extensive hence declared as BER"
