Philippines eyes second Pohang-class corvette

by Manasvi Shanker Sharma

A total of 24 ships of this class were built and commissioned by the Republic of Korea Navy (RoKN) in four batches between 1984 and 1993. Of these, 10 are still in service with the RoKN, while several others have been transferred to countries including Egypt, Peru, Vietnam, and Colombia.

The Philippine Navy (PN) appears to be moving ahead with plans to acquire another retired South Korean Pohang-class corvette.

The vessel under consideration is ex-ROKS Andong (ex-PCC 771), which was withdrawn from RoKN service in December 2020.
