Earlier it was reported that the 24-upgraded F-16C / D will go into service with the 3 and 16-th fighter squadrons of the Indonesian Air Force deployed on the Iswahyudi (Madiun) and Roesmin Nuryadin (Pekanbaru) air bases.

Before delivery F-16C / D in service with the Indonesian Air Force had 10 fighter F-16A / B Blok.20, six fighter jets F-5E «Tiger-2», five Su-27SK / SCM and 11 Su-30MK / MK2, as well as 21 Khok-200.
