The BRP Juan Magluyan (PG-392) is one of the Jose Andrada class coastal patrol boats of the Philippine Navy. It is part of the third batch of its class ordered in 1995, and was commissioned with the Philippine Navy on July 1998.[1][2] She is currently assigned with Naval Forces West in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

She was funded using FMS credits by the United States government. As part of the third batch ordered for the same class, she was built by the Philippine partner of the Trinity-Equitable Ship Yard of New Orleans, the Batangas-based Atlantic Gulf & Pacific Co. Shipyard.[1] She also appears to have a bulletproof covering over the pilothouse windows.[3]

The ship spent time in dry dock at Colorado Shipyard in Cebu in 2005.[4]

Operations[edit]

Upon the conception of Task Force Stingray in 2005, which patrols the Guimaras Strait and the Visayan Sea to guard Boracay island, BRP Juan Magluyan was one of the original ships included in the task force.[5]

BRP Juan Magluyan, together with other Philippine Navy ships, joined the Essex Expeditionary Strike Group of the United States Navy during Balikatan 2008 exercises.[6]

On 28 September 2009, BRP Juan Magluyan brought 20 rescued fishermen from Balabac to Puerto Princesa, Palawan for further medical treatment.[7]
