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
Ridzwan Rahmat - Jane's Navy International

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.


Test-firings of the Type 630 CIWS were conducted on board in July 2018. Source: TNI-AL
