BRP Gregorio del Pilar Warship








The newest government acquired warship, the BRP Gregorio del Pilar. This is a warship who was named after a young Filipino hero named General Gregorio del Pilar (the hero of Tirad Pass). 

 Docked at the South Harbor in Manila after sailing for 33-days from the U.S. to the Philippines. This is the country's first Hamilton class warship. 

The machines were overhauled and refurbished and sold to the Philippines. Officially, it  replaces the Raja Humabon, a Cannon-class destroyer escort that finally retired from its position. 

Although a second hand from the Americans, it can still work to protect us. 

 I hope someday, the Philippines can afford to buy a new one. Not a second hand.
