The Indonesian Navy has received its first SIGMA 10514 Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR) guided-missile frigate , which will be the future KRI Raden Eddy Martadinata.

The vessel with pennant number 331 was handed over by shipbuilder PT PAL on 23 January at the company's premises in Surabaya. Raden Eddy Martadinata is expected to join the TNI-AL's Eastern Fleet once it is inducted into service, IHS Jane's 360 reported today.

The 105 m frigate, which is the first of two ships jointly constructed by Damen and PT PAL, completed its sea trials in September 2016.

The frigate features a standard displacement of approximately 2,400 tonnes and can accommodate a crew of 120. It can attain a top speed of 28 kt, a maximum range of 5,000 n miles at 14 kt, and a standard range of 4,000 n miles at 18 kt.

The platform has been equipped with core mission systems supplied by Thales Nederland, including the TACTICOS combat management system, SMART-S Mk 2 surveillance radar, and STIR 1.2 EO Mk 2 radar/electro-optical tracking system.
