The Naval Sea Systems Command, through the Naval Shipyard (NSY), successfully administered the repowering and refurbishment of four (4) 78-Footer Patrol Craft MKII: BRP NESTOR REINOSO (PC380), BRP DIOSCORO PAPA (PC381), BRP LEOVIGILDO GIANTIOQUI (PC384) and BRP FILIPINO FLOJO (PC386) in the year 2016 under Foreign Military Sales (FMS).

The project was undertaken by US NAVSEA PMS326 and was divided into two lots. PC381 and PC384 started their upgrade on 01 August 2016 and was completed on 11 November 2016. PC380’s and PC386’s, on the other hand, started on 15 October 2016 and was completed on 22 December 2016. The project was conducted at Subic Dock Corporation (SDC), Subic Bay Freeport Zone, Olongapo City, Zambales. The upgrade implementation enhanced the habitability of the said vessels and doubled their average speed from 12 to 24 knots.

Two more patrol craft of similar class, the BRP ISMAEL LOMIBAO (PC383) and BRP FEDERICO MARTIR (PC385), will also undergo the same upgrade within the 1st Quarter of 2017.

Currently, PC380, PC381, PC384 and PC386, with improved capabilities, are now in their training phase and will soon be readily deployable to operational areas to continue their mandate of ensuring maritime security and providing platforms for humanitarian assistance and disaster response.

Program Summary

PMS 326, International Fleet Support Program Office, provides support and follow-on technical assistance to foreign navies and coast guards. They also manage the Excess Defense Article ship transfer process, delivering decommissioned US Navy ships to partners around the world. By working closely with the Navy International Program Office, PMS 326 plays a key role in shaping the nation’s approach to global maritime partnerships that are crucial to extending the reach of the 21st century Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. The program office provides the necessary oversight to ensure the effective and efficient execution of all Navy and Coast Guard surface ship foreign military sales (FMS).

The FMS program is a government-to-government method for selling U.S. defense equipment, services and training. FMS cases are a primary vehicle for providing technical assistance to partner navies, often bringing together multiple Navy programs as well.

Functional areas of support include:

    Integrated Program Management
    Case and Project Management
    Engineering Services
    Maritime and Industrial Training
    Maritime Industrial Support
    Contracts & Financial Management

Since 2009, PMS 326 has organized annual meetings of the International Frigate Working Group, comprised of U.S. and allied navies operating Oliver Hazard Perry class frigates. The International Frigate Working Group presents a unique opportunity to foster communication and identify maintenance, obsolescence and logistics issues impacting the class, and also present alternatives for sustainment and modernization programs.

PMS 326 also concentrates on the requisite follow-on technical support (FOTS) of decommissioned U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships used abroad. The range of support services offered includes acting as an “international type commander,” engineering, overall management, waterfront maintenance, systems upgrade and integration, modernization, supply and material oversight, software, publications and manuals, and personnel training.

PMS 326 is actively supporting more than 150 ships in 23 different countries, including:

    Philippine Navy Ex-US Coast Guard Cutters
    Taiwan Navy Frigate, Destroyer, and Amphibious Platforms
    Royal Saudi Naval Forces Patrol Boats
