Following the overhaul, the submarine KRI Cakra -401 has reached its maximum speed surfaced and submerged. This submarine which can dive to a depth of 200 meters below, can theoretically reach more than 300 meters according to the Commander of the Task Force (Dansatgas) Marine Colonel (P) Indra Agus Wijaya.
