The Makassar class is a class of 4 Landing Platform Docks designed for the Indonesian Navy by Daesun Shipbuilding & Engineering Co. of South Korea and based on the earlier Tanjung Dalpele class. The US$150 million contract was signed in December 2004[3] 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 LPD to be built in Indonesia was signed with PT PAL on March 28, 2005. On 19 October 2006, the first of the two Indonesian-built units, was laid down in a ceremony by Admiral Slamet Subiyanto, Chief of Staff, Indonesian Navy.[4] 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.


Besides Indonesia, the class of ship is being built for two other foreign customers:

The Peruvian Navy selected the Makassar class for the Buque Multipropósito program from Dae Sun Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. in 2012.[5] First ship of the class was laid down in the SIMA Callao shipyard on July 13, 2013;[6] A second unit is also planned.

The Philippine Navy selected a variant of the Makassar class design from PT PAL for its Strategic Sealift Vessel (SSV) programme following competitive bidding in 2013, and the contract for two units was signed on 23 January 2014.[7] The first unit was laid down at Surabaya on 22 January 2015.[1]
