He stated that the KRI Teluk Jakarta had sprung leaks before sinking in waters 90 meters deep at 9 AM local time.

18 st landstigningsfartyg av Frosch klassen byggdes på Peenewerft i Östtyskland under slutet av 70-talet och 12 st av dessa överfördes till den indonesiska marinen 1993-95. Ytterligare två fartyg av Frosch II-klass överfördes senare. Ett av fartygen skadades av överbrytande sjö på Biscayabukten under överföringen 1994 men reparerades. 2013 sjönk ett annat fartyg av klassen efter att ha kolliderat med en betongpollare. Ytterligare ett användes som målfartyg och sjönk 2012.
