KCR-60M Kapal Cepat Rudal (KCR – Fast Missile Boat)

One major indigenous program is the Kapal Cepat Rudal (KCR – Fast Missile Boat) program, consisting of three designs, the 40m KCR-40 built by PT Palindo, the 60m KCR-60 built by PT PAL and the 63m Stealth Trimaran KCR built by PT Lundin. Both the KCR 40 and KCR 60 designs carry the Chinese C-705 missile, with Indonesia having discussed with China licensed manufacturing the C-705 for domestic use. A target of 14 KCRs by 2014 and 44 by 2024 to meet the 2008 - Minimum Essential Force (MEF) had been set. The KCR 60 m has the ability to operate in high motion, agile and capable of firing positions in conducting avoidance of the opponent's counter-attack.

Construction of KCR 60 M is based on the letter of purchase agreement number: KTR/1060/02-48/XII/2011/Disadal No. The construction of M000273, W000274 and W000275 between PT PAL Indonesia (Persero) and TNI-AL represented by the Office of Procurement Mabesal (Disadal), built on the basis of class BKI. The first ship was scheduled to be delivered at the end of December 2013, the second ship would be delivered in March 2014, while the 3rd boat will be delivered in June 2014.

PT PAL cuts steel on Indonesia's fourth KCR-60M fast attack craft | Janes - 03 February 2017
Quote
The TNI-AL currently operates a fleet of three KCR-60M boats that were commissioned between May and September 2014. The platform features an overall length of 59.8 m, an overall beam of 8.1 m, and a hull draught of 2.6 m. The KCR-60M can attain a top speed of 28 kt and a standard range of 2,400 n miles at 20 kt.

According to a PT PAL media release on 2 February to mark the first steel cutting, the fourth-in-class will feature the same vessel specifications, but with a "more integrated weapons system" over its predecessors. The company has however, not provided any details on weapon systems that will go onboard the platform.

Indonesia acquires 57 mm naval gun for KCR-60M vessel | Janes - 01 February 2018
Quote
Indonesia has acquired a new Bofors 57 Mk 3 naval gun system from BAE Systems for its first KCR-60M missile attack craft, KRI Sampari (628).

< snipped >

The 57 mm gun will replace a 40 mm cannon from Bofors. This weapon type is currently installed across all three ships in the KCR-60M class. The older weapons were salvaged from the decommissioned landing ship tank (LST) vessel, KRI Teluk Semangka , as an interim measure to provide the KCR-60M class with a naval gunfire support capability.

Indonesia’s lead KCR-60M craft loses missile attack capabilities

Key Points
The Indonesian Navy has removed missile launchers from its lead KCR-60M fast attack craft
The move is the latest in a series of plans to equip the smaller Indonesian naval vessels with Chinese weapons
The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL) has removed missile launchers from its lead KCR-60M boat, KRI Sampari (628) as part of wider plans to reconstitute the class of fast attack craft.

The vessel, which was floated out by Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL on 21 December 2017 after refurbishment works, has now been installed with a Chinese-made Type 630 close-in weapon system (CIWS) turret on a pedestal at the stern position where a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) used to be positioned. The weapon is a Chinese version of the Russian-developed 30 mm AK-630, and is being marketed by China Shipbuilding Trading Co.

Accordingly, Sampari’ s RHIB has now been repositioned slightly forward to occupy the space that was previously installed with diagonally mounted missile launchers. These launchers were meant to have provided the vessel with anti-ship missile capabilities, and are capable of deploying weapons such as the Chinese made C-705.

Indonesia operates a fleet of three KCR-60M boats that were commissioned between May and September 2014, and is currently anticipating its fourth vessel from PT PAL. The 59.8 m platform is powered by two MTU 20V 4000M73L diesel engines, and can reach a top speed of 28 kt and a standard range of 2,400 n miles (4,444 km) at 20 kt.

Indonesia equips second KCR-60M attack craft with Chinese-made naval weapon | Janes - 16 July 2018
Quote
The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL) has equipped its second KCR-60M fast attack craft, KRI Tombak (629), with a Chinese-made Type 630 30 mm close-in weapon system (CIWS) turret.

Tombak is the second-known KCR-60M vessel that has been modified to carry the six-barrelled weapon system. First-of-class KRI Sampari (628) received the same CIWS type in late 2017. Jane’s has been made to understand that both ships underwent the modifications at state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL’s facilities in Surabaya in a process supervised by engineers from China.

The Type 630 is essentially a Chinese version of the Russian-developed AK-630. It is being marketed by China Shipbuilding Trading Company (CSTC) as the “NG-18 30 mm six-barrelled naval gun”. It can engage low-flying aircraft at distances of up to 2,500 m, sea-skimming projectiles at up to 1,300 m, and can fire between 4,500 and 5,000 rds/min.

To accommodate the weapon system, missile launchers on both Tombak and Sampari have been removed, with the Type 630 turret installed on a pedestal at the stern position where a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) used to be positioned.

Indonesia signs for four additional KCR-60M fast attack craft | Janes - 03 January 2019
Quote
The Indonesian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has placed an order for four more KCR-60M-class fast attack craft with state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL.

A contract for the vessels, worth IDR2,800 trillion (USD195 million), was signed on 28 December at the MoD's office in Jakarta, a senior official from PT PAL has confirmed with Jane's . All vessels will be constructed by PT PAL at its facilities in Surabaya.

However, unlike contracts for four earlier vessels in the KCR-60M class, the latest order calls for construction work in the 'fitted-for-but-not-with' (FFBNW) configuration for all the vessels' combat effectors including weapons, sensors, and countermeasures systems.

ADECS 2019: Indonesia orders more fast attack craft | Shephard Media - 22nd January 2019 - 12:00 GMT
Quote
The Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL) has ordered four additional KCR-60M fast attack craft, with these to be built by PT PAL. This will rise the number of these vessels to eight in the navy.

The order that was signed on 28 December is worth IDR2,800 trillion ($195 million), and delivery of the first craft by PT PAL’s Surabaya shipyard will occur in 2021.

The vessels will be fitted for but not with weapons, sensors and countermeasures. Separate contracts for this equipment should materialise at a later date.

While the class was originally conceived as a strike craft fitted with anti-ship missiles, of a size and speed that could make good use of cover offered by Indonesia’s island-strewn archipelago, the next batch of four vessels may end up with a lower level of equipment and be used for less-intensive missions.

IMDEX 2019: Terma to supply Indonesia’s KCR-60M class with C-Series Combat Suite
14 May 2019

Terma has received a contract to supply the Indonesian Navy's (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) KCR-60M fast attack craft with the C-Series Combat Suite.

Each vessel in the class will be equipped with Terma's C-Flex combat management system (CMS), the SCANTER 4603 X-band radar, the C-Guard decoy launching system, and the C-Fire electro-optical fire control system.

In addition to the three vessels already in fleet, and another awaiting commissioning, the system will also be installed on a further two KCR-60M vessels that will be delivered to the TNI-AL in the next few years. One of these is currently under construction at PT PAL's premises in Surabaya.

IMDEX 2019: Indonesia to reinstate missile capabilities on KCR-60M fast attack craft
17 May 2019

Slightly more than a year after removing missile launchers from two of its KCR-60M fast attack craft (FAC), the Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) is now working to reinstate the capability on these vessels.

< snipped >

Beginning in late 2017, Indonesia's state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL removed diagonally mounted missile launchers on Tombak and first-of-class KRI Sampari (628) as part of efforts to reconstitute the class.

The vessels were subsequently installed with the Chinese-made Type 630 close-in weapon system (CIWS) turret on a pedestal at the stern position where a rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) used to be positioned.

Type 630 CIWS set-up on Sampari and Tombak includes the Type 347G 'Rice Bowl' short-range fire-control radar and its associated fire-control console, and the SR47B air-and-surface search and gun-target indication radar, which has been integrated with an identification friend-or-foe system.

Indonesia selects BAE Systems 57 mm naval gun for four KCR-60M-class vessels
23 August 2019

The plan then was to install the gun system on the programme's first-of-class, KRI Sampari (628), for initial evaluation purposes. However, information from PT PAL and BAE Systems now confirm that the weapons will instead be installed on the third-in-class, KRI Halasan (630); fourth-in-class, Kerambit ; and fifth- and sixth-in-class, both of which have yet to be named.

The Bofors 57 Mk3 can handle up to 120 ready-to-fire rounds, with rate of fire of 4 rds/s. It has a maximum range of 17,000 m and can be loaded with the 57 mm Bofors 3P (pre-fragmented, programmable, proximity-fused) ammunition from BAE Systems, which enables the weapon to engage a numbers of threats, including shore targets, aircraft, and anti-ship missiles. The first unit is scheduled for delivery to Indonesia in 2020, while the final unit will be handed over in 2021.

On Halasan and Kerambit , the BAE Systems solution will replace older Bofors 40 mm cannons installed in the primary position. These ageing weapons were salvaged from the decommissioned landing ship tank (LST) vessel, KRI Teluk Semangka , as an interim measure to provide the KCR-60M vessels with a naval gunfire support capability.
