The new tanker comes with a length of 123.50 meters and a width of 16.50 meters with a capacity of 5500 cubic meters of oil. In the future, this ship works the same as KRI Tarakan, namely as Auxiliary Support Vessel, which refuel Indonesian Navy warships while operating in the sea.

"The plan of this ship will be operated in the task force of the western fleet region (Armabar, red), given the current, we lack the tools for this region," said Mulyadi.

The tanker will also be equipped with a Replenishment at Sea (RAS) system that allows ships to transfer fuel to other vessels while in operational and remote shipping conditions. This ability is very useful in military strategy, where time and speed are crucial in critical situations.

"That means, the ship does not have to stop or return to the base to just do the refueling. For example, we do not need to return to the base at Natuna when operating in the outer waters. This ship we need while operating in maintaining the boundaries of the Indonesian sea in the border region, "he explained.

"It is now completed eight blocks weighing 360 tons. That means the development of the ship has reached 1 percent, and already can keel laying, "said Mulyono Adi.
