  • Delivery medical supplies to the Filipino civilian populace in the Pag-asa Island (Thitu Island)
  • Delivery school supplies for Pag-asa Elementary School
  • Patrolling of the Philippine' administered and claimed areas of the Spratly Group of Islands in compliance with Global Assembly's Law of the Seas Resolution

Deployment List

In Coast Guard District Palawan (CGD PAL) of Puerto Princesa (Palawan), coast guard sailors and auxilarist has finished their routine ship inspection and preventive maintenance checks on the BRP Cape San Agustin and the PZL-W3ARM SAR helicopter; making sure that all assets shall be fully operational for the routine mission to Kalayaan municipality in Pag-asa Island – 280 nautical miles away from Puerto Princesa, Palawan.


The crew of BRP Cape San Agustin, including the pilots and medics started embarking the ship. Once the ship and helicopter are fully supplied, fully provisioned, fully fueled, supplies for Pag-asa Island citizen are loaded, and the crews are all in good physical and mental health condition, the contingent will set sail for Pag-asa Island.

BRP Cape San Agustin will travel at OJ to the lower fringes of OK, navigating through the safe routes of South China Sea where ample sea depth permits safe draught margin for BRP Cape San Agustin. The Coast Guard Auxiliarist in CGD PAL also sent a private, encrypted message to the Vietnam Vietnam Navy and Vietnam Coast Guard informing them of BRP Cape San Agustin mission as the coast guard ship will be entering Vietnamese EEZ.

The time is 0635H. Just another morning for the Filipino citizens living in Pag-asa Island / Thitu Island of the Spratly group of Island.


The teachers and students of the Pag-asa Elementary School just finished their morning flag ceremony. Folks from the municipal hall of Kalayaan and municipal medical clinic received a private SMS from Coast Guard District Palawan of the arrival of BRP Cape San Agustin. They are eagerly waiting for the fresh shipment of medical supplies and school supplies.




BRP Cape Agustin safely arrived at 0655H, carefully docking beside the wharf of Naval Station Emilio Liwanag. Philippine Navy logistics personnel welcomed the crew of BRP Cape San Agustin as the Coast Guard sailors disembark from the Gregorio del Pilar-class Frigate of the Philippine Cost Guard. All the supplies for the people of Pag-asa Island were carefully unloaded and distributed to the municipal clinic and to the Pag-asa Elementary School faculty.
Once all the Coast Guard crew got their rest, eating their lunch, rehydrated, and BRP Cape San Agustin fully inspected and confirmed fully operational, the Coast guard crews would return back to the ship and will continue would continue with their routine patrol. BRP Cape San Agustin would leave Pag-asa Island at exactly 1200H noon. The grateful Filipino civilians and children seen waving at the Coast Guards while they depart.

Time is 1310H. BRP Cap San Agustin would make a round within 12 nautical miles around the Pag-asa Island as part of their routine patrol. One of the senior petty officer at the bridge noticed blips from the SAAB Sea Giraffe Radar. He immediately informed the Captain:

SPO: “Captain. We’re detecting two (2) large vessels. 12 nautical miles, 205 degree from True North. Shall we contact them, Sir?”

Capt: “205 degrees, you say? That’s Zamora Reef (Subi Reef). Set course to location of contact. Switch Sea Giraffe to Surface search mode only and no radio comms. Let’s get closer and verify what these vessels are and what they are doing there.”

[​


BRP Cape San Agustin carefully navigate the South China Sea towards Subi Reef, avoiding shallow areas. It will only take them less than 1 hr 30 minutes to reach Subi Reef.

The Coast Guard Gregorio del Pilar class frigate, BRP Cape San Agustin, arrived at the location of the two (2) unidentified ships . BRP Cape San Agustin can clearly see the two (2) ships from it’s portside. Using a binocular, the Captain takes a better look at the 2 patrolling ships. And to his surprise, he identified the two ships are Type 055 Destroyers from the Chinese Navy.

Captain: “What in the hell are these “celestial” Chinese warship doing here? They are not supposed to be here! Quick! Contact those Chinese bastards!”

A senior petty officer at the bridge hails the two PLAAN Type 055 Destroyers via VHF Marine Radio Channel 16. The senior petty officer would call them first via VHF Marine Channel 16 (international emergency / hailing channel) then instructs them to switch to VHF Channel 9.

SPO: “Chinese Navy Destroyers. This is the Philippine Coast Guard ship, BRP Cape San Agustin on Channel 16. Switch to Channel 9 and acknowledge. Over!”

While BRP Cape San Agustin is hailing the 2x Chinese warships, they are simultaneously sending private , encrypted message to the 5x Cryptologic Technicians stationed at the Pag-asa Island and the 5x Cryptologic Technicians at the Sierra Madre outpost at Ayungin Shoals via MF Radio Telex. The message is basically informing them of the sighting of Chinese warships at Subi Reef.

The Cryptologic technicians at Pag-asa Island and Sierra Madre outpost at Ayungin Shoals would receive the private message from the Coast Guard ship via Narrow Band Direct Printing (NBDP) as they are all equipped with MF/HF radio systems. (OOC: see Naval Intelligence and Security Force https://modernnations.com/threads/philippine-navy.995/).

The crew of BRP Cape San Agustin would also be sending private, encrypted messages to Philippine Coast Guard District Palawan via SMS using GPS phones. Philippine Coast Guard District Palawan would be alarmed from message from BRP Cape San Agustin and immediately relays the message to the Philippine Navy and the Department of National Defense.

Ten (10) Sailors also went to the Ship’s portside and started taking photos of the 2x Chinese warships.

The People's Liberation Army Navy had fully been expecting an encounter with a regional power after Operation Guardian was started and as such were fully prepared for dealing with such a situation. Maintaining operations as soon as the Philippine Coast Guard vessels were detected they would simply track their movements and keep weapons systems ready should they prove to be needed. Once the hail came in the crew of the Tianjin would agree and switch the channels to instructed.

"BRP Cape San Agustin, this is the Tianjin. Acknowledged. Over"

An encrypted and secured message would be sent to Yulin, informing them that contact has been made with the Philippine Coast Guard.

BRP Cape San Agustin also got visual contact of the second Type 055 Destroyer which the Coast Guard crew saw from the bow of BRP Cape San Agustin. The coast guard crew also took photos of the second Type 055 Destroyer sightings.


Back in the bridge, upon the acknowledgement of the Chinese destroyer, BRP Cape San Agustin continues with their radio communication to Tianjin via VHF Marine Channel 9.

SPO: “Chinese destroyer Tianjin. Please state the size of the group / fleet you are with in this area. And also, please declare your purpose / intention on why you are patrolling this area. Over.”

BRP Cape San Agustin continuously provide SITREP of what is going on the NISF personnel (cryptologic technicians) at Pag-asa Island and Sierra Madre outpost at Ayungin Shoals, as well as Coast Guard District Palawan. The captain of BRP Cape San Agustin also discreetly ordered his crew (not heard from radio comms) to ready the water cannons in preparation for an "attack" on the Chinese Type 055 destroyers. The captain would also privately instruct his crew via ship intercom:

Captain: "Ready the OTO Melara, but don't aim it at Chinese invaders...yet."

All radio communication are being recorded in the Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) of BRP Cape San Agustin.

Meanwhile, the Department of National Defense secretly informs Vietnam of the current situation taking place at Subi Reef (which is actually inside Vietnam's EEZ).

"BRP San Agustin, the exact composition of our force is classified. We are operating under the umbrella of the Coast Guard to protect shipping and prevent piracy in Celestial territorial waters and the EEZ due to a current lack of assets capable of blue water operations within the branch. Over."

The Tianjin and Xi'an would maintain realtime encrypted communications to maintain a unified approach to the situation. Upon the order of the Captain of the Tianjin both ships would ready CIWS to deal with any possible incoming projectiles though both the VLS systems and naval guns would remain active but not targeted. YJ-18s were prepared just in case. Both ships would ready electronic countermeasures should the San Agustin decide to escalate and using the AESA radars a close eye was kept on the ship's movements. An encrypted message would arrive from Yulin to avoid violence but to hold firm.

At the brdige, the crew of BRP Cape San Agustin would all shake their heads in misbelief as they heard the response from the Chinese. They would then carefully approach the Chinese Type 055 Destroyer while keeping radio communications.

SPO: “Chinese destroyer Tianjin. You and Chinese destroyer Xi'an are blatantly violating Chapter 4 of the Global Assembly's Resolution on the Law of the Seas. The incapability of your Chinese Coast Guard is not a excuse for violating GA Resolutions. And may I remind you that by not fully declaring the exact composition of your force who are currently violating the Global Assembly Resolution, you are making your offense even worst. So I repeat, state the size of the group / fleet you are with in this area. Over."

All information are being secretly and securely relayed to Pag-asa Island and Sierra Madre outpost at Ayungin Shoals, as well as Coast Guard District Palawan. CGD Palawan then immediately and secretly relay the information to the Armed Forces and DND.

"BRP San Agustin, as the Tianjin and Xi'an operate under the umbrella of the Coast Guard there is no violation of the Law of the Seas. The resolution in spirit and writing only prohibits military vessels, if this were to cover all vessels with weapons your very own vessel would be in violation. There is also no obligation under international law to declare the composition in our territorial waters or international waters."

As the Philippine ship started to get dangerously close to the security perimeter of the Tianjin orders would be issued for four YJ-18s to be loaded into VLS tubes.

BRP Cape San Agustin would respond:

SPO: “Chinese destroyer Tianjin. The Philippine Coast Guard is a registered law enforcement organization, not a military organization. Philippine coast Guard ships are also registered as coast guard vessels. Your ship on the other hand are PLAAN ships hence are military vessels. As for your argument on "armed vessel", that is applicable for civilian ships registered as commercial/merchant vessels. Besides, all Coast Guard ships around the world are obviously armed since they are are law enforcers. Not with missiles though like a Type 055 destroyer of the Chinese Navy.

I also want to remind you that an Exclusive Economic zone only extends 200 nautical mine from a country's territorial baseline as per GA Resolution of Law of the Sea. The Spratly Island group is obvious way more than 200-nm from China.

So I repeat for the last time, state the size of the group / fleet you are with in this area. Over."

"BRP San Agustin, you will have to point out the international treaty provision that stipulates a vessel nominally under the Navy is not allowed to act under the umbrella of the Coast Guard. Neither the Law of the Sea or any other resolution we are aware of prohibits this. In fact the convention only says a military vessel cannot operate within disputed waters. As our mission is one of policing that counts as a police vessel. In fact the convention does not define what a military vessel is at all. We will not declare our composition"

Full transcripts were forwarded to Yulin.

BRP Cape San Agustin would respond:

SPO: “Very well. You have the right to remain silent. *crews are laughing inside the bridge. of course they made sure that their laughs won't be heard over the VHF radio comms. The senior petty office would continue:

SPO: “Chinese destroyer Tianjin. A PLAAN Navy ship does not make him a non-PLAAN Navy ship even under an "umbrella" of a non-military organization. Same goes with as a non-military ship operating under the "umbrella" of a Navy also does not make it a Naval ship. And if you are not clear of the definition of a military vessel - well a military vessel is simply a Naval vessel painted in haze gray.

And by the way, we can clear see the pennant number of your ship. Definitely that's a PLAAN Navy ship. Oh, and one more thing, we don't remember Coast Guard ships armed to the teeth except the former USCG Hamilton cutter Mellon during the Cold War era."

I also want to remind you that an Exclusive Economic zone only extends 200 nautical mile from a country's territorial baseline as per GA Resolution of Law of the Sea. The Spratly Island group is obvious way more than 200-nm from China.

We would like to you to leave the Spratly Islands and steer back inside your 200-nm EEZ immediately because clearly your ships are not in this area for "innocent right of passage" but rather you're doing a military patrol disguised as a Chinese Coast guard mission. I repeat, leave the area immediately. Over."

With the matter referred to the Global Assembly, orders were issued from Yulin for the Tianjin to break off communications with the Philippine ship and simply continue observing its movements while continuing on its patrol mission. Both the Tianjin and Xi'an would comply.

The Philippine Coast Guard ship BRP Cape San Agustin would continue closing in to the Chinese Navy destroyer Tianjin. The crew of BRP Cape San Agustin would be alerting the Chinese Navy destroyer via VHF Marine DSC Channel 70 instead of hailing them at VHF Marine Channel 16. The crew would also continuously contact the Chinese destroyer Tianjin via VHF Marine Channel 9:

SPO: “Chinese destroyer Tianjin. You are violating Chapter 4 of the GA Resolution for the Law of the Sea. Leave the Spratly areas immediately! Failure to comply with the GA Resolution will be treated as military aggression by China. I repeat. Leave the Spratly areas immediately! Over."

BRP Cape San Agustin would already be 1 kilometer from the Chinese Destroyer Tianjin.

The crew of the BRP Cape San Agustin’s bridge would inform the captain:

SPO: “Captain, the two (2) Chinese destroyers has apparently left the contested area. Shall we continue pursuit just to be sure they will not come back?”

On the same time, BRP Cape San Agustin would be contacted by Coast Guard District Palawan, ordering them to return back to CGD Palawan immediately. The captain would then reply to the senior petty officer:

Captain: “Negative. Reverse course and RTB.”

Seeing that the Chinese Naval vessels has left the contested zone of the Spratly Island group, BRP Cape San Agustin would reverse its course and head back to the Coast Guard District Palawan home port.

Once BRP Cape San Agustin arrives back at Coast Guard District Palawan’s port, the ship would again undergo quick maintenance checks and housekeeping to ensure that the ship will be operational for future missions.
