The USS George Washington, is the latest large warship the US has sent to the Philippines this year.

Last month, the submarine tender USS Frank Cable arrived at Subic Bay in the Philippines. The US embassy in the Philippines says the tender is to strengthen social and military ties between the two countries.

Its US crew are conducting training and taking part in local community relations projects in the country. Soon after, the Destroyer, USS Milius, and the amphibious assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard, joined the training.

Three other submarines, the USS North Carolina, the USS Louisville and Hawaii, visited Subic Bay in May, June and September. Earlier this month, the US Navy sent the strike submarine Olympia to Subic Bay on a routine visit.

Jane’s Defense Weekly reports the Philippines has agreed to allow the US re-use to the Subic base, as a "semi-permanent military base".
