What happened to the BRP Andres Bonifacio?

Well, many years ago I saw it sank where it was moored. (pier of PN San Felipe).  Then it was towed away to sit on some other portion of the base, I guess it was eventually dismantled for scrap.

Just a question guys.... What happened to BRP Andres Bonifacio. Did it sank, retired, reserved or still in active duty?

It is the ship where Gringo Honasan, his cohorts and guards escaped from back in 1988.

From this old site "http://members.tripod.com/pcga109/ships.htm", we have a lot of ships that we have no records as to what had happened to them. Their status as of this moment.

Do you have also some pictures and specifications of BRP Davao del Norte?

It's would be nice if we can keep a database of the ships that is currently on the inventory of PN as well those who have been retired and those who met Davy Jones' locker. 


Here are some information you may probably know but I just recently encountered  over the net about other Philippine Vessles acquired and under construction.

2 November 2003

Tenix built Search and Rescue vessel delivered to Philippines
Tenix Defence has handed over a 35-metre Search and Rescue vessel to the Philippine Coast Guard the fifth of six vessels it is building under a follow-on contract with the Philippine Government.

 

The vessel arrived in the Philippines yesterday, Saturday 1 November.

 

Named BRP ROMBLON, was formally handed over to the Commandant of the Philippine Coast Guard, Vice Admiral Reuben S Lista, at an official ceremony in Fremantle WA.

 

The Philippine Search and Rescue Project is the latest success in the long history of Tenix patrol boat design, construction and export at its Henderson shipyard.

 

Designed entirely by Tenix for rapid emergency response, BRP ROMBLON, is equipped for survivor recovery and rescue coordination, and will assist with humanitarian aid in South East Asia similar to its sister ships.

 

Tenix delivered two 56-metre SAR vessels, BRP SAN JUAN and BRP EDSA II, to the Philippines Government in 2000, and was then contracted to build 6 extra vessels for the Philippine Coast Guard as part of the follow on order valued at A$130m.

 

Tenix has already delivered two 56-metre SAR vessels and two 35-metre vessels to the Coast Guard with the last vessel from the follow-on order to be delivered in January 2004.

 

Work on these and other similar vessels has generated employment for an additional 200 personnel at Tenix's Henderson facility and approximately 70 personnel subcontracted over the life of the ship-builds.

Agree scrapped na ito along with:

BRP Gregorio del Pilar (PF12)
BRP Diego Silang (PF9)
BRP Francisco Dagohoy (PF10)

These are the Navy's best Ships.

From: http://timawa.net/forum/index.php?topic=3230.0

Yung hindi pa retirado yung BRP Andres Bonifacio ,isang higanteng High Endurance cutter ng Philippine navy, ay meron itong 5 inch gun (127mm) na umaabot sa 16.5 kilometro ang abot ng 5 inch shell nito. Kaso nga lang ay world war 2 vintage ito na last ginamit sa vietnam war. Ex-US navy tapos naging ex-South vietnamese navy ship ito bago tumakas sa mga komunista nung 1975 at pag-dating sa Subic Bay ay inangkin ng ating Hukbong Karagatan at naging BRP Andres Bonifacio. Nung mid-1990s ay naging scrap na ang BRP Bonifacio pero ang kanyang 5 inch (127mm) cannon ay tinangal at naka-display pa rin sa Cavite Naval base. Nang dito ang dambuhalang 127mm na canyon:

Hmmm.  What could you mount that on?  An LST?  A freighter?  Fort Drum?

Didn't the ship sink? Would the gun even still be serviceable?

Yes you can.  The USN had Inshore Fire Support ships - basically LSM hulls mounting a 5 inch gun like the one above together with a large number of rocket launchers.

The gun shown here in Sangley isnt from the Andres Bonifacio though.  Pictures of the Andres Bonifacio after she had been beached still show the turret and the gun in place.  I think this gun is from another ship that was landed to serve as a training gun (ie, the navy has single examples of every gun it uses for training purposes).

This probably came from the Barnegat-class ships that the navy obtained from Vietnam and used as spares hulks.

It should be mounted on an LST since these ships are what we usually send to the Spratlys.

I support the re-use of old equipments for other purposes.
