    I think the latter what the TNI-AL source referred to. Found some article and blog from French source (example below) that saying Blk 3 already have limited ground attack capabilities.
    Thus I presume Blk 3 have capabilities to engage ground target near coastal zone (perhaps like naval facilities).

    Congrats to the TNI AL on acquiring this capability. The Singapore Navy is still using our Block IC missiles.
    Exocet Block 3 have land attack capability, it’s even stated in the brochure. They talk about coastal land attack capability because the Europeans also sell other types of land attack missiles. See extract below:

    EXOCET MM40 BLOCK 3’s Mission Planning software module automatically computes engagement plans to support firing decisions.
    • 200 km class effective operational range
    • Anti-ship as well as littoral operations [aka overland flight to mask approach] and coastal land attack capability
    • Outstanding penetration capability against enemy air defences
