Zf173. U.S. Navy ship in Subic Bay on the 10th of June 2021. This is the first foreign Navy ship I saw in 7 month, since Nov. 21 2020 when I returned to the Philippines. Before I left the Philippines on the 19th of Nov. 2019, MSC ships came regular to Subic Bay, even Navy war ships including submarines.
So, seeing a Navy ship back in Subic Bay is news to me!
