Two Royal Australian Navy (RAN) vessels, the HMAS Anzac (FFH-150) and HMAS Success (OR-304), docked at  Subic Bay for a goodwill visit from Thursday to Sunday.

Capt. Lued Lincuna, Philippine Navy spokesperson, said a welcome ceremony and port briefing will be conducted upon the arrival of the two Australian ships.

The BRP Emilio Jacinto was assigned to conduct the customary meeting point procedure for Royal Australian Navy HMAS Anzac and HMAS Success before they dock at Subic Bay.

The BRP Emilio Jacinto (PS-35) is the lead ship of the three Jacinto class of corvettes, and are considered as one of the most modern ships in the Philippine Navy.

The RAN HMAS Anzac frigate is equipped with a variety of weapons capable of engaging surface, sub-surface, and air threats.

The HMAS Success (II) is an Auxiliary Oiler Replenishment (AOR) vessel of 18,000 tonnes fully loaded and 157.2 meters in length. Present maritime operations demand that naval combat units must be supplied with fuel, ammunition, food, and stores while underway at sea. The ship is capable of day and night Replenishment at Sea (RAS) to ships alongside and concurrently by her embarked helicopter to other vessels in a company via Vertical Replenishment (VERTREP).
