MANILA -- The Philippine Navy's (PN) capability to patrol the country's vast waters got a much needed boost with the deployment of five newly-repaired ships last March 4.

Captain Jonathan Zata, Navy spokesperson, said Wednesday the five vessels were sent off from the Capt. Moya Boat Landing, Naval Base Cavite, Sangley Point, Cavite City.

The activities were headed by Philippine Fleet commander, Rear Admiral Danilo R. Rodelas, he added.

Deployed to various naval operating units were the BRP Manuel Gomez (PC-388), BRP Heracleo Alano (PC-376), BRP Tausug (LC-295), BRP Subanon (LC-291), and BRP Bacolod City (LS-550).

These ships were activated after completing dry-docking and other-related repairs at the Naval Shipyard in Fort San Felipe, Cavite City.

"The most honorable call and excellent service to the Navy is Sea Duty. I see many examples of valuable and brave sailors who, for me, prove that the soul, spirit and life of our Navy is indeed strong," Rodelas said during the deployment ceremony.

Deployment plays a very crucial role in the Navy's effective conduct of maritime patrol operations, internal security operations and logistics support missions aimed at better serving the Filipino people.
