Notes: These four ships were ordered in 1982 as an ancillary to the PB-57 patrol boat order. They use the same hull and propulsion train but are much less equipped. Indonesia paid for them through the Customs Service budget but they were delivered to, and operated by, the Indonesian navy. In theory they are to be used for anti-smuggling patrols but in practice they are almost always operated in a naval context. Two RHIBs are carried, and two infantry platoons can be embarked for short hops, or one infantry squad for longer voyages. Two water monitors are mounted for firefighting. These ships can land a helicopter but have no facilities to support one.

The first two ships were shipped from West Germany to Indonesia in incomplete sections as deck cargo, and reassembled and fitted out by PT-PAL shipyard in Surabaya. The second pair were entirely built under license. They are very lightly equipped, with a minimum of weapons and sensors, even for the basic patrol role. All but the first were delivered with the 40mm gun missing, having it added later, and the secondary weapons are army machine guns. Their electricity-generating capacity (two 135kV AC generators run off the main engines) is far less than the regular PB-57 design and thus their potential for future upgrades is small.

In 1995, KRI Bervang was renamed and modified to serve as the state yacht. The accommodation was upgraded, and a reviewing stand was built on top of the bridge.
