The embedding ceremony was also marked by a number of attractions ranging from small boat operations, shootings and demolition, shooting pistols and taking code names.

On that occasion, Ali mentioned the shortcomings of both the personnel and defense equipment in the Puskopaska Koarmada III Command Unit, such as sea riders, to diving equipment, both closed circuit and open circuit.
