MANILA, Philippines - The 12th joint marine exercises between with Philippine and Australian navies will commence Monday, October 22, focusing on anti-terrorism, disaster response, and human and drug trafficking.

"Lumbas 2012," the 12th annual Maritime Training Activity (MTA) involving the Philippine Navy and the Royal Australian Navy, will start Monday aboard the HMAS Sydney in Manila's South Harbor.

An estimated 300 personnel from both groups will be involved in the 5-day activity, including members of the Philippine Coast Guard, Philippine National Police, Bureau of Immigration, National Bureau of Investigation, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.

The training will also have activities on maritime security, surveillance and interdiction.

The Philippine Navy's BRP Mariano Alvarez and BRP Bienvenido Salping, as well as a component from the Naval Special Operations Group, will participate in the exercise.

This comes as President Benigno Aquino III kicks off his trip to Australia and New Zealand. He is scheduled to leave Manila on Sunday, October 21. -

The Royal Australian Navy guided missile frigate HMAS Sydney (FFG 03) arrives at Manila's North Harbor on Sunday to join a maritime exercise between the PHL and Australia. The Sydney has been deployed to the Persian Gulf on five occasions in support of US operations during the Gulf War, war in Afghanistan, and the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and has completed at least two round-the-world voyages.

Given by the openness of the Aussies when it comes to selling off what they don't need, I think this is a good proposition. Just look at the Carrier they sold at China.

HMAS Melbourne (R21) was a Majestic-class light aircraft carrier of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Operating from 1955 until 1982, she was the third and final conventional aircraft carrier(I) to serve in the RAN. Melbourne was the only British Commonwealth naval vessel to sink two friendly warships in peacetime collisions.[4]

The ship was not scrapped immediately; instead she was studied by Chinese naval architects and engineers as part of the nation's top-secret carrier development program.[6] However, it is unclear whether the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) orchestrated the acquisition of Melbourne or simply took advantage of the situation; Rear Admiral Zhang Zhaozhong, who is both the son of PLAN founder Zhang Aiping and a staff member at the National Defence College, has stated that the Navy was unaware of the purchase until Melbourne first arrived at Guangzhou.[161] Melbourne was the largest warship any of the Chinese experts had seen, and they were surprised by the amount of equipment which was still in place. The PLAN subsequently arranged for the ship's flight deck and all the equipment associated with flying operations to be removed so that they could be studied in depth.[156] Reports have circulated that either a replica of the flight deck, or the deck itself, was used for clandestine training of People's Liberation Army Navy pilots in carrier flight operations.[6] It has also been claimed that the Royal Australian Navy received and "politely rejected" a request from the PLAN for blueprints of the ship's steam catapult.[156] The carrier was not dismantled for many years; according to some rumours she was not completely broken up until 2002.[144] A 2012 article in Jane's Navy International stated that the large quantity of equipment recovered from Melbourne "undoubtedly helped" Admiral Liu Hau-qing secure the Chinese Government's support for his proposal to initiate a program to develop aircraft carriers for the Navy.[156]
