SHAH ALAM: IT appears that Gading Marine – a subsidiary of the Gading Group – is offering the Damen Sigma 92m design for the RMN LMS Batch 2 project. The Sigma 9113 combatant design is among the items showcased at the Gading Marine booth at DSA 2022.
According to the specifications, the ship is 91 meter long with a 3.7 m draught and a displacement of 1900 tons. The Indonesian Navy already operates four of the same Sigma design which is designated the Diponegoro-class. The four ship class were built between 2005 and 2008 with the last ship commissioned into service in 2009.
Based on the model on display at the Gading Marine booth, the proposed ship will be armed with a BAE Systems 57mm Bofors gun, a VLS system for 12 missiles, twin launchers for SSSM and a single 30mm aft. It will be powered by twin diesel engines, proppeling the ship up to 28 knots.
As you are aware the RMN wants eight ships for the LMS Batch 2 project though the Defence Ministry has yet to confirmed its funding.
