PH Navy's largest ships on 'stand by' for 'Rolly' relief missions


The Philippine military has been at the forefront of the matter with respect to disaster response brought about by super typhoon Rolly.

The Philippine Navy has announced that four of its largest ships are now ready for possible sealift and command-and-control missions.

This was announced by PN public affairs office chief Lt. Commander Maria Christina Roxas Tuesday when asked about the Philippine Navy’s contribution to the ongoing disaster response efforts by the government for typhoon victims.

Ships now on standby are the PN’s two landing docks, the BRP Tarlac and BRP Davao Del Sur, and two logistics support vessels, the BRP Bacolod City and BRP Dagupan City.

“(These ships could) basically serve as military sealift and transport vessel(s) and may act as floating command-and-control ship(s) during times of humanitarian assistance and disaster response operations (HADR),” Roxas said in a message to the Philippine News Agency (PNA).

Roxas said the foru ships are the largest in the fleet with the Tarlac-class dockings having a gross tonnage of 7,400 tons and an overall length of 120 meters, breadth of 21 meters, draft of five meters and can carry a payload of 2,800 tons.

Meanwhile, the Bacolod City-class logistic support vessels have a displacement of 4,265 tons at full load and 273 feet long.

“All units of the PN in areas affected by Super Typhoon Rolly were put on heightened HADR stance and will continue to assist local government units and national agencies in responding to the needs of the Filipino people that were adversely affected by this calamity,” Roxas said.
