DSA 2016: Type 730 CIWS for KCR-60M

The Indonesian Navy has selected the Chinese-developed Type 730 close-in weapon system (CIWS) for the first two of three KCR-60M-class missile attack craft. The vessels, KRI SAMPARI (628) and KRI TOMBAK (629) will each be fitted with one stern-facing Type 730 turret that will replace two 20mm guns currently mounted on the platforms. Also scheduled for the refit in September is the installation of a Chinese-developed combat management system (CMS) that will be linked to the platform's 57 mm main gun, CIWS and missile launcher systems. The TNI-AL has decided to deploy the Chinese-made C-705 surface-to-surface missiles on the service's KCR-60M platform.
