Quote
The Indonesian Navy’s (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL’s) sole Rover-class replenishment tanker, KRI Arun (903) is currently listing towards its starboard side after a failed replenishment-at-sea operation.

The incident took place off Ujung, Surabaya on 19 March at about 1830 h local time. According to a TNI-AL source who forwarded the image of Arun to Jane’s after the incident, the 140 m ship started to heel as it was replenishing the multipurpose hospital ship, KRI Dr Soeharso (990).

The cause of the incident has not been ascertained, but Jane’s understands that initial indications point to a ballast pump failure on board Arun . The tanker will be temporarily taken out of service in lieu of damage assessments by TNI-AL personnel.
