Philippine Navy’s third Del Pilar-class frigate BRP Andres Bonifacio (FF17) is now in Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ) for its very first Continuous Maintenance Availability (CMAV).
“It is BRP Andres Bonifacio’s first time to dock at Subic Port. For three months, Andeng will undergo her very first Continuous Maintenance Availability (CMAV) in SBFZ,” said in BRP Andres Bonifacio’s official page.
“This also opens up for other opportunities for training and physical fitness,” it added.
In April, BRP Andres Bonifacio replaced BRP Gregorio del Pilar (FF15) as the lead-warship securing the West Philippine Sea.
BRP Gregorio del Pilar was deployed for Continuous Maintenance Availability that time. However, FF15 was sent to Singapore to attend the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN) from May 11 to 19.
After the Singapore engagement, BRP Gregorio del Pilar was sent to attend Philippine Navy’s 119th founding anniversary celebration in Davao City on May 31.
