    In line with its efforts to boost the number of its operational naval assets, the Philippine Navy (PN) announced that it has committed the sum of Php36,782,946.31 for the structural repairs and dry-docking of the BRP Miguel Malvar (PS-19), one of the oldest corvettes in its service.

    Winning bidders are required to complete the repairs within 100 calendar days.

    BRP Miguel Malvar is the lead ship of the Miguel Malvar class of corvettes of the PN.

    She was originally built as USS PCE(R)-852, a PCE(R)-848-class rescue patrol craft escort for the United States Navy during World War II.

    She was acquired by the PN in April 1976 and later on commissioned as the BRP Miguel Malvar. PNA

    1. Meron tayong pagawaan ng barko sa pinas kaya lang walang pondo na inilalaan dito kaya tayo ang pinakamahinang pwersang militar sa buong asya sana mag allocate ang gov ng 2percent sa GDP para sa ating afp modernization para hindi tayo pinagtatawanan ng kapitbahay nating billy ang China

      Sana isantabi lang muna ang halagang iyan. Idagdag sa mga susunod na pondo upang tayo ay makabili o makapagpagawa ng mas bago at modernong barko. Ito ang mas kailangan ng Navy natin sa kasalukuyan.
