South Korea will transfer a set of ten decommissioned amphibious landing craft to Indonesia free of charge to help strengthen their military cooperation.

In 2008, the South Korean Navy decommissioned the LVT7A1 vehicles that will be transferred to the Indonesian Navy next month on South Korea's largest landing ship, the Dokdo.

The LVT7A1s, originally acquired from the US, are capable of transporting 12 soldiers each to conduct landing missions.
