The Sampari-class fast attack craft is a class of domestically designed and built fast attack craft operated by the Indonesian Navy. The ships are also known as KCR-60M and all ships are built by the local company PT. PAL in Surabaya.

These ships are made with a composition of aluminum and high-tensile steel in hull parts which are also a domestic product obtained from state-owned foundry PT. Krakatau Steel in Cilegon.

They have a length of 60.3 m (197 ft 10 in), a beam of 8.1 m (26 ft 7 in), and a displacement of 460 tons. They can reach a top speed of 28 knots (52 km/h; 32 mph).


The first two of the Sampari class (Hull 628 & 629) are equipped with Chinese-made SR-47 search radar and TR-47 fire control radar. The later version was equipped with Danish Terma-made SCANTER 4603 X-Band radar and a C-Fire electro-optical fire control system.


The first two of the Sampari class vessels (Hull 628 & 629) are equipped with four C-705 anti-ship missiles. The later batch of this class is expected to be fitted with MBDA anti-ship missile solution (Exocet MM40 Block 3).
