Answer To Jeng Jeng Jeng!
Yes Mr Anonymous you are absolutely right. The photo of TS Class Samudera in my previous posting is photo-shopped to illustrate the possible equipment that can be additionally fitted. So it is right if the CNO wants several units to be upgraded to replace the FAC units that are decommissioned or elderly. Below is another photo showing the potential of the platform to become a guided missile unit.

So if you want many cheap platforms to patrol our seas, this class could be it but don't forget in a real shooting war, the result may be otherwise so we better have a balanced fleet instead.
