Indonesian Defence Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro has launched the indigenously built warship, the KRI Clurit, at Batu Ampar cargo port, Batam, Riau Islands province, Indonesia.

The 40m-long KRI Clurit is a swift missile-carrying ship designed and built by PT Palindo Marine to help secure the country’s waters in the western region, according to Antara News.

“With it, Indonesia has started to have the capability to safeguard its seas with self-made ships. We no longer need handouts,” Yusgiantoro added.

The minister said that an indigenous submarine and a destroyer would also be added to the Indonesian Navy’s fleet.
