The Chamsuri Class patrol craft was developed by Korea Tacoma Marine Industries. The boats first entered service with the Republic of Korea Navy (ROKN) in the 1970s. The craft are built by Korea Tacoma Marine, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Hanjin Heavy Industries.

Chamsuri Class boats are also known as Patrol Killer Medium (PKM) craft. The boats were built in two batches known as the 201 series and the 301 series. In addition to the ROKN, the patrol boats are also in service with the Bangladesh Navy, Kazakhstan Navy and the Philippine Navy.

South Korea has also transferred seven patrol craft to the Philippine Navy. The first batch of five boats were delivered in 1995 and a second batch of two craft were transferred in 2006. The Philippine Navy boats are designated as the Tomas Batillo Class. These boats are deployed to protect the Malampaya natural gas platforms near Palawan.

The Patrol Killer Medium (PKM)-ROK Acquisition/Upgrade Project involves the acquisition of two PKM vessels from South Korea and their upgrading in the Philippines. It was initially conceived that shipbuilders from the Republic of Korea (ROK) will undertake the upgrade of PKM vessels in Korea and subsequently ship them to the Philippines. Since no Korean Company was interested to undertake the upgrade project as manifested by the failure of first bidding, the AFP recommended to have the vessels shipped first to the Philippines and have the vessels upgraded in the country through another public bidding.

PKM-ROK Shipment from Korea to Philippines project was awarded to All Transport Network, Inc.
