Surabaya (09/06) CEO of PT PAL Indonesia Mr. Kaharuddin Djenod received a visit from the CEO of Babcock Marine (Rosyth) Ltd. Will Erith at the PIP PAL Building. During the visit, Mr. Kaharuddin was accompanied by CMO Mr. Willgo Zainar, SEVP TM Mr. Satriyo Bintoro, SEVP TNS Mr. Laksda Catur Sudarsono and related General Managers.

During this visit, discussions were held regarding the completion of pre-production preparations for the first Frigate Ship. As is known, the Indonesian Ministry of Defense has officially appointed PT PAL Indonesia as the main contractor in building 2 units of Frigate-class warships in Indonesia. PAL chose Babcock as a provider of Frigate Ship design, after considering Babcock's portfolio and track record as a provider of modern naval technology. The selection of Babcock himself as a design provider has received approval from the Indonesian Ministry of Defense.

now let's wait for the final specification reveal.

Kapal Korvet Rudal Heli (KRH) VVIP dan Kepresidenan. Kapal yang diberi nama KRI Bung Karno ini, didesain khusus untuk menggantikan kapal kepresidenan sebelumnya, yakni KRI Barakuda yang saat ini kondisinya sudah tidak memadai karena termakan usia.

Why not build training ship instead, KRI Ki Hajar Dewantara is so old now.

Presidential boat won't be used as much as presidential plane by RI 1, but still of some use for Navy higher ups when they need to supervise and observe navy exercise etc, just call it VIP boat and not presidential boat.

Its good and comfortable enough for navy higher ups to ride but not good enough to be called a command ship.
