Sigma Naval Patrol Series

Sigma Naval Patrol Series

Sigma6

Based on available information Indonesia has an option on the 9113 version of this ship. In this folder it is clear Damen/Schelde has the same impression (see flag H-deck, page 6). This is not a patrol ship as the Dutch government repeatedly stated but an combat vessel, with ocean capabilities. This was already clear from much other information, but now also confirmed by the Wharf in Flushing.
See e.g. artist impression and weapons systems expected. Also the Jakarta Post of January 7, 2004 reported the ships to be close to 91 metres. When only for patrol duties Indonesia can do with a much smaller and cheaper ship.
