    First of 2 new vessels for PH Navy to be launched in Indonesia

    The first of the two strategic sealift vessels that the Philippine Navy acquired from Indonesia will be launched on Sunday.

    “We just got word from the Navy that the strategic vessel, one of two we have ordered from Indonesia, will be launched January 17 at the PT PAL shipyard in Indonesia. Key officials will be in attendance to see the launching of that ship,” Armed Forces spokesperson Brig. Gen. Restituto Padilla told reporters on Friday.

    The term “launching” means a ship is put into the water for the first time from the dry dock. It will undergo a series of tests before it is delivered to the buyer.
