Indonesia received the latest batch of Apache Guardian AH-64E helicopters


The contract for the supply of 8 helicopters was signed with Lockheed Martin in January 2015. The transaction value was about $ 300 million.

The first batch of 3 helicopters arrived in Indonesia in December 2017, aboard the C-17 GLOBMASTER. The second batch of five Apache helicopters was delivered by sea.

Thus, at present, all 8 ordered by the Apache Guardian AH-64E are in Indonesia.

It is reported that the helicopters will be used "to ensure the defense of Indonesia and deter external threats, control the country's borders, combat terrorism and piracy, and ensure the safety of maritime communications in the Strait of Malacca."

Along with American cars, eight Russian-made Mi-35s will be operated, the first of which was delivered to Indonesia in the 2003 year.

        With a group of Jemaa Islamiyah. Do you think the Russian Federation should help them with air defense?

          Why ? History has many examples where one producer supplied both sides of the conflict.

        Against this helicopter, the Tunguska will not particularly help. He is imprisoned for action in conjunction with a UAV

          My regards ! hi As far as my memory serves me, the Apaches have armor from 23 mm shells. And you can distinguish UAVs from a helicopter without a thermal imager. Correct if I am mistaken or misunderstood you.

            Thanks to the UAVs controlled from the helicopter itself, it simply will not enter the zone of effective use of the Tunguska

              Here you are talking about. In this context, I agree.
