Tatlong Bayani.  The three ships are named after three leaders of the Philippine Revolution.  English ships, named after 
Philippine patriots who fought the Spanish and then the Americans.  
These three ships represent the future of the Philippine Navy.  These ships gives the Philippine Navy valuable experience in operating modern ships 
and will provide a source for trained crews to man more modern warships.

Emilio Jacinto in drydock taken in December 2004 at the official start of the program.  Note that work actually has started already with scaffolding surrounding the masts and the old radars already taken down.  Note the 20mm gun forward of the funnel.  This was added by the PN.  Irish navy ships have additional machine guns in this location.

Summary of the Program provided by Qinetiq

Stern shot of the Emilio Jacinto taken during the ceremonies kicking off the official start of the program.  Note the keels which were modified by the RN soon after entering service and the red anti-fouling paint.  That bottom of the ship is pretty clean is a credit to Philippine Navy maintenance personnel since a clean bottom translates directly into speed and efficiency through the water.  The photos showing the ships profiles below the water line are the first known photos taken showing the full lines of the hull. 

Updates. 

Pictures of two of the three ships of the class showing off their updates and new guns.  Not visible are the internal improvements that have made the ships more effective.
