The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) has commissioned its third and final Nagapasa (Type 209/1400)-class diesel-electric submarine (SSK) in a ‘symbolic’ ceremony that was held on an island in the South China Sea.

The vessel, KRI Alugoro (405), was inducted into service on 6 April by Indonesian armed forces chief, Air Vice Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto, at the naval base on Great Natuna Island. A day before the vessel’s commissioning, the TNI-AL also held a ceremony to mark the start of construction for a new naval base at the same location.
