KCR 40 Fast missile ships (KCR - Kapal cepat rudal)

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 MEF had been set.

Fast missile ships (KCR - Kapal cepat rudal) were ordered by the government from the PT Palindo Marine shipyard, Batam. These types of vessels are important for the security of sea area. Of the four KCR ordered, two had been handed over by late 2012, KRI Celurit-641 and KRI Kujang-642. This is part of the massive Navy (AL) procurement program. The price per unit of vessel known around Rp75 billion. The government was in collaboration with the Bank for financing. This fleet will be operated in the western region and Sulawesi Utara.

Indonesia’s navy (TNI-AL) inducted three anti-ship missile craft into its Western fleet, local military sources reported August 3.

According to a statement by the navy’s Western Fleet (KOARMABAR), Indonesia inducted three KCR-40-class anti-ship missile craft into the fleet. The three vessels – KRI Surik (645), KRI Siwar (646) and KRI Parang (647) – were commissioned in September 2014 by former Indonesian defense minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro. They were built by local shipbuilder PT Palindo in Batam.

The 44m KCR-40 can reach a top speed of 30 knots and can accommodate 35 crew members. According to IHS Jane’s Fighting Ships, a KCR-40 is armed with a 20 mm Denel Vector G12 main gun, two 12.7 mm machine guns, and launchers that can fire C-705 surface-to-surface missiles.
