MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Navy’s first missile-capable frigate, the future BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150), is moving closer to join the naval fleet.

Outgoing Navy chief Vice Adm. Robert Empedrad, who will retire in early February, said that they are in the “final stage” on evaluating if the upcoming warship has met the requirements in the contract.

“Actually tapos na ‘yung sea trial ng ship at sea. Na-test na nila lahat and then okay na. There is some fine-tuning in the weapons systems,” he said.
