Description: The Makassar class of landing platform docks (LPDs) were developed and built by Daesun Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. of South Korea, a subsidiary of DSME, for the Indonesian Navy in the 2000s. Daesun built the two first ships for the Indonesian Navy and the remaining two built were built by PT PAL in Indonesia. Four more vessels will be delivered to Navies of Peru under the Buque Multiproposito program and the Philippines under the Strategic Sealift Vessel (SSV) program in the 2010s. The two ships for the Peruvian Navy awarded to DSME will be built by SIMA Callao Shipyard in Peru and the two Philippine Navy ships by PT PAL in Indonesia. The Makassar landing ships are intended to support amphibious operations carrying a significant number of Marines, helicopters and vehicles. The Indonesian Navy commissioned the first ship in April 2007 and took delivery of the fourth and last one in March 2011.
