The Philippine Coast Guard on Thursday received its second Parola-class multirole response vessel named the BRP Malabrigo (MRRV-4402)

The vessel is the second of the 10 multirole response vessels to be turned over by Japan. The PCG earlier said the BRP Malabrigo will be used to patrol waters off Panatag Shoal. 

Last August, the PCG also welcomed the arrival of the first MRRV from Japan, the BRP Tubbataha.
