"There is no money, there are planes": in Indonesia on contributions to the program for the creation of the IF-X fighter

KF-X



South Korea and Indonesia are working on a new agreement on the KF-X fighter program. Due to the lack of financial resources, Jakarta proposes to pay not in currency or palm oil, but by air.

According to the Indonesian edition of CNBC, negotiations between the countries are to take place this week. The main issue regarding the KF-X program (in Indonesia, the designation IF-X) is the settlement of funding for the project.

Jakarta initially agreed to pay out $ 1,46 billion, about 20% of the program's total budget. But in total, $ 0,19 billion was allocated, with the last time the payment was made in 2017. According to the South Korean newspaper Yonhap, the debt has already reached $ 420 million.

The Indonesian authorities want to reduce the contribution to the program from the promised 20% to 15%. At the same time, Jakarta insists on extinguishing it not with money, but with CN-235 aircraft manufactured in the country at the state-owned company PT Dirgantara Indonesia. At the same time, Indonesian officials want to get more technology from the project, but this depends on the United States, since some of them are of American origin. Jakarta is using the possibility of canceling duties for a number of South Korean goods as a "bargaining chip".

CN-235 is a light turboprop military transport aircraft created by Indonesia in cooperation with Spain. It made its first flight in 1981. Serially produced since 1988. The largest operator is Turkey, which is armed with about 50 vehicles.

    And who will give you "more technology" ?, especially the merikatos?!? laughing If only what technical condition, how to drop into a palm tree for coconuts?

    Indonesia has the same burden with the Su-35. The preliminary agreement was signed, and then the money was counted - it turned out not. And let's dance with tambourines around the palm tree. They are very reminiscent of the cyan. Phai-phai

    It looks like a bad joke or a dough cut. So Korea wants to immediately become the flagship of the military aircraft industry from the production of a copy of the F-16? And this despite the fact that even the recognized leaders have not finished their 5th generation products.

      I don't know about the cuts, probably everything is in order. But what is most striking is the cost of the program. That makes about $ 7,5 billion, compared to the more than a trillion that states have already spent on their troubled pepelaz. The difference is almost 140 times. Hence the question, who saws where, and who more. lol

        Stop flogging nonsense ...
        Once again, I repeat, read normal sources of information, not the crap that's in your brain.

        $ 1,5 trillion, that's the cost of the F-35 program.
        This is the cost of R&D.
        This is the cost of all equipment for all subcontractors, component manufacturers and assemblers.
        This is the cost of all engines with a 20-year margin.
        This is the cost of all scheduled aircraft.
        This is the cost of retraining and training pilots on the F-35.
        This is the cost of all aerodrome equipment that is created specifically for the F-35.
        This is the cost of all the fuel that is planned to be spent over the 20 years of the F-35 program.

        And you, a very stupid person, continue to talk about pilezh ..
