Modernisation[edit]

All six frigates have had their steam turbine power plants replaced with marine diesel engines.[4]

The frigates of the Ahmad Yani-class are due to be replaced by the Martadinata-class frigates (Sigma 10514); the first of which, Raden Eddy Martadinata (332), was commissioned on 7 April 2017.[5]
