JAKARTA, -- Indonesian shipyard PT Caputra Mitra Sejati has begun work on a lightly-armed variant of the KCR-40-class missile attack craft for the Indonesian navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL), a source close to the service confirmed with IHS Jane's on 21 June.

The variant has been dubbed the PC-40 and retains the hull characteristics of the original KCR-40 platform, including its overall length of 44 m, overall beam of 7.4 m, and hull draught of 2.4 m. Keel for the first-of-class was laid on 6 April at PT Caputra Mitra Sejati's shipyard in Serang-Banten, Indonesia.

However, unlike the KCR-40, the PC-40 will not be armed with launchers for anti-ship missiles.
