MANILA, -- The Royal Australian Navy guided missile frigate HMAS Anzac has arrived in Manila as part of its current deployment around South-East Asia.

The port visit to Manila, over the period 16 to 21 May 2016, will allow the ship's company to conduct cultural exchange activities, including sporting events with their Philippines’ Navy counterparts as well as replenishing fuel and stores.

On sailing from Manila Anzac will exercise with the Philippine Navy’s BRP Rajah Humabon in the waters off the Philippines, conducting passage exercises, ship handling operations and personnel exchanges.

The activities are designed to increase an understanding of each nation’s operational procedures to further enhance interoperability.

HMAS Anzac was the third Anzac-class ship to undergo the Anti Ship Missile Defence (ASMD) upgrade. She completed her upgrade during 2014 and started deployments in March 2015.

The Royal Australian Navy HMAS Anzac (FFH-150), guided missile frigate docked at the Manila South Harbor on Monday for a five-day goodwill visit.
