The Philippine Navy will be spending P19.1M for drydocking and repair expenses for the BRP Rajah Humabon (PF-11). Re-bidding invitations were posted on PhilGEPS on October the 5th, indicating that an earlier bidding attempt had failed. The current bids (PB-296-PN-12 and PB-295-PN-12) are both due to close on the 23rd of October.

The 69-year old PF-11 (launched in 1943) is the last of the PN’s Cannon-class Patrol Frigates, and up until the arrival of the BRP Gergorio del Pilar was the Philippine Navy flagship.
