KRI Raden Eddy Martadinata (331) is an all-modern guided-missile frigate in service with the Indonesian Navy. The vessel makes up the lead ship of the originally planned four-strong Martadinata-class which currently includes sister ship I Husti Ngurah Rai (332). The two resulting warships were commissioned in 2017 and 2018, respectively, making them relatively new additions to the Indonesian Navy's surface fighting fleet. An original Dutch design, construction of the ships has been jointly-handled by Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding of The Netherlands as well as PT PAL Indonesia with work spanning from 2014 until 2018.

KRI Raden Eddy Martadinata saw her keel laid down on April 16th, 2014 and she was formally launched to sea on January 18th, 2016. The vessel entered commissioned service with the Indonesian Navy on April 7th, 2017.

Martadinata displaces at 2,365 tons and carries a crew of 122. Onboard stores allow the vessel to remain on station for up to twenty days before requiring resupply. Dimensions include a running length of 344 feet, a beam of 46 feet, and a draught of 12.3 feet. Onboard systems include the Thales TACTICOS combat system, STIR 1.2 Mk.2 STING Fire Control Radar (FCR), and Thales FOCON communications network. Electronic Warfare (EW) is handled through the Thales VIGILE 100 and Scorpion systems.

Power is through a COmbined Diesel-Or-Electric (CODOE) propulsion arrangement involving 2 x MCR diesel engines with 2 x MCR electric motors mated to 2 x Double Input-Single Output transmission systems. This provides the warship with a top ocean-going speed of 28 knots out to a range of 5,800 miles.

Armament is a mix of ballistic, missile, and torpedo solutions. This is led by the 1 x 76mm OTO-Melara turreted deck gun over the forecastle. The ship carries 12 x MBDA VL MICA and 8 x EXOCET MM40 Block III missiles. There are twin EuroTorp B515 triple torpedo tubes supporting the Whitehead torpedo family. Close-in defense is handled by a 35mm Rheinmetall Oerlikon Millennium Gun and 2 x 20mm Denel GI-2 automatic cannons. All told, the armament suite is represented through designs originating from Britain, Italy, France, Germany, and South Africa.

Externally, the ship exudes modern design lines with a stealthy, clean appearance. The turret is set overlooking the bow with clear firing angles to the front and sides. The bridge section is held aft of the gun with a well-sloped frontal facing leading up to the mission deck. Atop the bridge section is the enclosed main mast with its collection of sensors, communications, and processing systems. The smoke funnels are paired at midships and are of a low-profile, enclosed design. The hull superstructure is a continuous shape leading out to the stern. Over the rear of the hull is a single-helicopter helipad with integrated hangar area. An AS565 Panther medium-lift helicopter is typically carried.

Due to its inherently versatility by design, the warship is a true multi-mission solution, able to operate independently or as part of the main fighting force.
