quote menarik dari artikel,
----------
1."The 57mm Mk 3 naval gun with stealth cupola is already fitted on the Royal Swedish Navy Visby class stealth corvettes. Like on the Visby class, the stealth cupola will greatly contribute to lower the stealth signature of the Malaysian Gowind corvettes. An engineer from BHIC Bofors Asia SDN. BHD. told us during LIMA 2013 that the shape of the stealth cupola for the Gowind Corvettes will slightly differ from the one found on the Visby class to maximize the stealth characteristics of the corvette designed by DCNS."

2."It was confirmed during LIMA that the combat management system will be the SETIS by DCNS, the Fire Control Systems will be provided by Rheinmetall, and the engines will be provided by MTU. The design seems to have increased in size with the length of the LCS now at 111 meters (compared to 107 as previously reported) with a displacement of about 3,000 tons (compared to full load displacement of 2,730 tonnes as previously announced).

Integrated with SETIS, a combat system derived from FREMM class Frigates, Gowind Combat can tackle air, surface and submarine threats. The shock-resistant platform (built according to military standards), the small radar cross-section together with an excellent acoustic signature makes it a high-performance surface combatant.

Gowind Combat can be operated by a limited crew and has been designed to offer great at-sea availability and reduced life cycle costs. "

INDONESIA memiliki 5 submarine.."

Kapal selam 402 milik TNI Angkatan Laut yang sedang melakukan patroli rutinitas di perairan perbatasan negara, kemarin sore sekitar pukul 15.00 Wit singgah di Pelabuhan Sorong. Sandarnya kapal selam yang bermarkas di Surabaya tersebut, untuk mengisi BBM, serta mengisi air tawar dan menguatkan bahan makanan. Rencananya setelah keperluan itu tercukupi kapal selam akan kembali melanjutkan misi nya keliling perbatasan perairan negara. Komandan kapal selam Letkol Purwanto melalui wakil komandan Mayor Muhammad Dimas yang ditemui wartawan, mengatakan singgahnya kapal selam tersebut karena di Sorong terdapat pangkalan. Ia sendiri belum dapat memastikan sampai kapan kapal yang dapat menyelam hingga 300 meter dibawah permukaan laut itu berada di Sorong. namun menurutnya direncanakan dalam waktu dekat harus sudah kembali berlayar.
“Bukan kunjungan tetapi kami singgah karena di sini kan ada pangkalan, untuk mengisi bahan bakar dan juga mengisi air tawar dan bahan makanan,â€katanya seraya menambahkan, perlunya mengisi BBM , setelah sempat tiga pekan berlayar dan menyelam untuk mengelilingi perbatasan perairan negara.“Kalau untuk kondisi di perbatasan perairan sendiri sampai saat ini masih aman terkendali,â€tegasnya. Kapal selam tersebut sebelumnya sandar di Kupang dan melanjutkan perjalanan tujuan Sorong.
Kapal yang berangkat dari Surabaya kurang lebih satu setengah bulan lalu tersebut, mengangkut 66 anggota yang dilengkapi dengan peralatan khusus. Kapal selam sendiri, menurutnya sempat singgah di Sorong pada tahun 2002 lalu.“Untuk selanjutnya kita masih menunggu perintah, bisa saja saat dalam perjalanan ditengah laut mendapat perintah gerak kemana ya kita laksanakan,â€paparnya. Dikatakannya,saat ini ada lima kapal selam milik Indonesia yang sedang beroperasi dengan kondisi yang baik. Kapal selam sendiri sandar di pelabuhan Sorong, tepatnya di pelabuhan sebelah kanan disamping kapal pengangkut container.(reg)

."It was confirmed during LIMA that the combat
management system will be the SETIS by DCNS,
the Fire Control Systems will be provided by
Rheinmetall, and the engines will be provided by
MTU. The design seems to have increased in size
with the length of the LCS now at 111 meters
