The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) has commissioned its first three PC-40-class patrol vessels.
The platforms, which have been named KRI Tatihu, KRI Layaran, and KRI Madidihang with pennant numbers 853, 854, and 855 respectively, were inducted on 10 January in Batam during a ceremony presided over by TNI-AL chief Admiral Ade Supandi.
All three vessels were built by Indonesian shipbuilder PT Palindo Marine and first laid down in 2015.
Featuring an overall length of 46.5 m, an overall beam of 7.9 m, and a design draught of 1.7 m, the PC-40 platform draws its design largely from the TNI-AL's KCR-40 class, but without launchers for anti-ship missiles.
