“The Philippine Fleet through Sealift Amphibious Force (SAF) christened and commissioned BRP Mamanwa (LC294), former Mulgae Class LCU 70 of the Republic of Korea on December 6, 2021 at Captain Salvo Pier, Naval Base Heracleo Alano,” the Navy said in a statement sent to reporters.

The ship was named after the Mamanwa tribe, located mostly in Mindanao. According to the National Commission for the Culture and the Arts, the Mamanwas’ lifeway was “founded on slash-and-burn cultivation on small patches and minimal wet rice agriculture.” 


According to the PH Navy, some members of the Mamanwa tribe were invited and witnessed the ceremony through an online platform. 

The BRP Mamanwa, considered as a landing craft utility (LCU), has a maiden crew of 10 Navy personnel. It also has augmentation from other SAF Forces and Maintenance Repair Team. LCUs are boats capable of transporting equipment, wheeled vehicles, and troops from amphibious ships.
