The main reason for poor Indonesian submarine views is the existence, and then the enlargement, of this enormous “sub pen” building in the restricted naval area of Surabaya.

Nagapasa Class LOA 201′ / 61.3 m TDISP 1,400 tons submerged (3 building, 3 active) enlarged version of South Korean Jang Bogo class, built by Daewoo. KRI Nagapasa was commissioned at the PT PAL submarine facility/pier to the West of the large sub pen building.
