Indonesia adopted a new frigate

Indonesian Navy replenished with a new stealth frigate. According to the portal, at the shipyard of PT PAL, located in the city of Surabaya, a solemn ceremony of transfer to fleet ship KRI I Gusti Ngurah Rai (tail number 332).

I Gusti Ngurah Rai - the second rocket frigate project SIGMA 10514 Perusak Kawal Rudal (PKR). The contract for its construction was signed in 2014 year, and today the ship, built with the use of technology to reduce radar visibility (stealth), officially became part of the Indonesian Navy.

Indonesia adopted a new frigate

The frigate I Gusti Ngurah Rai is built on modular technology and consists of six large parts, four of which were made in Indonesia, and two - in the Netherlands. After all the hull elements had been delivered to the PT PAL Surabaya shipyard, they were put together and the ship was lowered into the water.

The frigate is equipped with MBDA MICA anti-aircraft missiles, MBDA Exocet MM40 SSM anti-ship missiles, Oto Melara 76 / 62 Super Rapid artillery X-mmX caliber, two MG automatic guns 76,2-mm MG and two BXNX torpedo tubes.

New frigates can be used in the open sea and deep-sea rivers. The ships have 3D radars with a detection radius of up to 250 km. Also on board SIGMA 10514 frigates are integrated electronic warfare systems, there are hangars and platforms for helicopters weighing up to 5 t.

SIGMA (Ship Integrated Geometrical Modularity Approach) corvettes were developed by the Dutch shipbuilding company Damen Schelde Naval Shipbuilding. Due to the modular design, these ships are built relatively quickly and can have different sizes and types of weapons. Thus, SIGMA 10514-type corvettes built for Indonesia are 105 m long and 14 m wide, and SIGMA 9813, purchased by the Moroccan Navy, are 98 m long and 13 m wide, transmits "Warspot"

    Actually interesting cars .... The modular design is also an interesting thing. As I understand it, this can significantly speed up the construction cycle, as different "blocks" (fragments of the case) can be made at different plants, and then "docked". Here, of course, you need the highest accuracy.
    As far as I know, shortly before the collapse of the Union, Kiev "Lenkuzne" was also preparing the construction of a "modular" corvette (more precisely, the IPC), which was supposed to come to replace the "Albatross" (I don’t know who the developer was), but !!! The union fell apart, everything was "covered with a copper basin" ....
    It’s interesting what kind of “miracles” our “defense industry” could “reveal to the world” if it were not for the “dashing 90s” when the benefits were actively “redistributed” in favor of a miserable bunch of villains and “freezers” .....

      Modular ship designs were analyzed in our MO. As a result, the idea was rejected as not relevant for our military shipbuilding, where the plant can do on-and-off stocks. Our new ships can be called partially modular.
      For Ukrainians, modularity was just a fashion, because of all the modules they could blind only the engine compartment and the nose. Everything else would have to be bought abroad.
      In general, initially modularity was implied as the ability to quickly replace weapons systems, on-board equipment, propulsion systems, etc. in one building. If we take an analogy in tank building, then modularity can be traced in the Armata project, i.e. any necessary combat or auxiliary vehicle is assembled from the elements of the "constructor".

    Of course, I apologize for being off topic. My articles are constantly deleted by admins. Motivating that this is copy-paste from other sites. But on the website IN there is a rare exception to the author’s post. All copy-paste. But why do not they publish me ?? silent, boiling.

      Yes, relax, I also sent an article where I indicated the source. The next day, it was published on behalf of another person. Not in this happiness in life and not in likes. And in obtaining information in principle.

        Berkut24 colleague you apparently have not received a warning yet? I have 3 of them already, and not for the mat! I looked at the list of my comments, half of them were already quietly deleted !!!
        1. The comment was deleted.

          Yes, I have a warning - put asterisks instead of a rude word. I have already lived such a life that warnings do not kill me. Yes, I’m not complaining - they warned me about the case, and as for the publication - so figs with her. Anyway, she later appeared on the site. Anyway repost.

    what does the author of the article mean by 3d radar ??? is that how? is he in three de max models of enemy equipment himself or what?
