The Clurit was built by PT Palindo Marine Industries, Tanjunguncang, Batam. PT Palindo also worked with Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering's Daesun Shipyard in South Korea on the design and construction of four Makassar class landing platform docks. The Clurit is named after a curved blade weapon native to the Madurese people of East Java.
Another ship with the same specifications was commissioned by the Indonesian Navy in February 2012, named KRI Kujang 642. Two more had been commissioned by the end of 2013, with a total of nine planned by the end of 2014. Three of the new vessels are being constructed by PT Palindo, with nearby PT Citra working on the fourth.
The first four of the class were originally armed with just a Denel (Vektor) 20mm cannon and two 12.7 mm machine guns. In May 2014 the Clurit and Kujang were fitted with a Chinese made six-barrelled NG-18 30mm CIWS and two of the new C-705 SSM, although Jane's states that they can each carry four such missiles. Indonesia hopes to licence-build the C-705, which is a derivative of the Chinese C-704 anti-shipping missile with a turbojet to extend the range to 120 kilometres (65 nmi). Although the first C-705 have been fitted, it is not clear when they will become operational.
