Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder Lundin Industry Invest has launched a new fast attack trimaran craft slated for the Indonesian Navy.

The future KRI Golok, named after a traditional Indonesian bladed weapon, is a Klewang-class stealth trimaran that will be equipped with surface-to-surface missiles for precision strikes and a 30-millimetre close-in weapon system (CIWS) for self-defence. Once completed, the vessel will measure 62.53 by 16 metres and will be capable of reaching speeds of up to 28 knots.

The future Golok is the second Klewang-class trimaran to be built. The class lead ship, KRI Klewang, was destroyed by fire on September 28, 2012, while still undergoing fitting out.

Klewang‘s loss occurred just four weeks after its launching.
