The Indonesian Navy's (Tentera Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL's) third KCR-60M missile attack craft, KRI Halasan (630), was commissioned in a 17 September ceremony presided over by defence minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro.

The commissioning was conducted at PT PAL's shipyard in Surabaya, where the vessel was built. It follows the successful delivery and induction of sister ships KRI Sampari (628) and KRI Tombak (629) in May and August 2014 respectively. The vessels have been procured under the country's 2010 Strategic Defence Plan: aiming to deliver a 'Minimum Essential Force' by 2024, the Plan includes a requirement for up to 66 patrol vessels.

PT PAL Indonesia launches a third KCR-60 Fast Attack Missile Boat for the Indonesian Navy. This ship is the third KCR-60 to be built. The first KCR-60 have already been handed over to the Indonesian Navy on 28th June and was given the name KRI Sampari.
The second KCR-60, currently in the testing phase and is named KRI Tombak, and the third ship is named KRI Halasan that has just been officially launched marking the completion of manufacture. The launch was marked by entering the ship into the water in the docks of PT PAL in Surabaya.
This third launch is done by PT PAL's Board of Commisioners and senior ranks of the TNI-AL(Indonesian Navy).

Specifications of the KCR-60:
- Length: 60 M
- The length of the water line: 54.82 M

- Height: 4.85 M
- Displacement(Fully loaded): 460 Tons

In addition to the production of KCR, PT PAL has successfully produced 43 patrol boats ordered for the Indonesian Navy.
Meanwhile, TNI Rear Admiral Suyitno, said the 3 KCR-60s are not the last that was ordered from PT PAL. There will be a total 16 KCR-60s ordered from PT PAL and another 16 KCR-40s.
The development of the KCR, he said, is the first step to self-reliance of defense equipment, especially for the Navy. The expectation for 2024 is for TNI to be completely self-sufficient in building a whole arsenal.
