Fast-Attack Missile Boat

"KRI Sampari joins her sister boats in providing a critical quick-reaction capability for the modern Indonesian Navy."

The relatively new Sampari-class fast missile-boats serve the modern Indonesian Navy through three distinct production batches known simply as Batch I, Batch II, and Batch III. These hulls are completely indigenous Indonesian industry solutions with some 18 total boats planned in the series led by KRI Sampari (628). The class supersedes the earlier Clurit-class boats in same role, bringing with it all-modern systems, improved capabilities, and a broader weapons set. Six of the planned hulls have been completed to date (2023) by shipbuilder PAL Indonesia.

KRI Sampari (628) was launched on December 18th, 2013 and formally commissioned into service on May 28th, 2014.

Fast-attack boats provide navies with just that - the ability to rapidly respond to an emerging at-sea threat while carrying a mix of ballistic and missile weaponry. While able to operate (to a limited extent) in open water, the vessels are equally adept at close-to-shore operations largely due to their inherently shallow draughts (hulls). The Sampari-class gives the Indonesian Navy a quick-reaction force playing a critical role for the fleet.

In the Sampari-class, the boats take on a conventional design form by modern standards: a single turreted deck gun is featured over the bow. The hull superstructure is fused to the hull proper, creating very clean lines as a result. The bridge section sports and angled front face and provides ample viewing out over the front half of the boat. The superstructure is stepped, leading down to the stern. The mast is of an enclosed design and mounts all manner of systems covering sensors and communications.

The boats displace up to 500 tons under load and feature a running length of 197.9 feet, a beam of 26.6 feet, and a draught of 15.1 feet. Power is from a pair of German MTU 20V 4000M73L engines driving the vessels to speeds of 30 knots out to a range of 2,400 nautical miles. With onboard stores, the crew of 55 can remain at-sea for up to a week.

Installed systems (which differ slightly from succeeding boats in the class) on KRI Sampari include the H/ZKT Combat Management System (CMS), Terma C-Flex CMS, TR-47C Fire Control Radar (FCR), and SR-47AG search radar. The Electronic Warfare (EW) suite is comprised of 2 x 122mm Six-tube decoy launchers. Armament includes a 57mm AU-220M turreted deck gun, 2 x 20mm Yugoimport-SDPR M71/08 automatic cannons, an NG-18 Close-In-Weapon System (CIWS), and 4 x C-705 Surface-to-Surface Missiles (SSMs).
