From Canadian Power Wiki
The Makassar-class is a class of four landing platform docks designed for the Indonesian Navy by Daesun Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. of South Korea and based on the earlier Tanjung Dalpele. The US$150 million contract was signed in December 2004 and the first two units were built in Busan, South Korea. The remaining two were built at Indonesia's PT PAL shipyard in Surabaya with assistance from Daesun.
The contract for the 3rd and 4th LPDs to be built in Indonesia was signed with PT PAL on March 28, 2005. On October 19th 2006, the first of the two Indonesian-built units, was laid down in a ceremony by Admiral Slamet Subiyanto, Chief of Staff, Indonesian Navy. The 3rd and 4th units had been designed to function as flagships with provisions for a command and control system, 57mm gun and air defense systems.
