Indonesia will buy additional fighters "Dry"

Indonesia plans to buy an additional batch of Russian Sukhoi fighter jets and self-built patrol boats as part of the 15 billion-dollar five-year plan to modernize the armed forces, the military department said Wednesday.


Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said that Indonesia intends to buy a squadron of Sukhoi fighter jets and patrol boats.

He also warned delegates of the military conference that the rapid increase in military spending and the buildup of military power in the region could sow distrust and rivalry for energy resources.

“If this is not accompanied by increased transparency, which will increase confidence and confidence, it can turn into an arms race that will adversely affect peace and stability,” he said.

Another Indonesian military official said there are plans to buy 16 Sukhoi fighters, 17 patrol boats, three light frigates and an unknown amount tanks and rockets.

Indonesia also plans to modernize an American-made F-16 fighter squadron. Indonesia already has more than 10 Sukhoi fighters.

In October last year, the Ministry of Defense announced that it was planned to purchase 130 tanks from Leopard 2 from the German company Rheinmetall AG for a total of 280 million dollars.

Indonesia, a country of islands with key sea routes and 54700 km (34000 miles) of coastlines, also ordered three South Korean submarines to increase its fleet submarine up to five units.

The country's defense spending in 2012 amounted to 72500 billion rupees (7,54 billion dollars), which is 30% more than in 2011 year. As expected, in 2013, the military budget will increase to 77700 billion rupees.

      And how to support the marine corps? Another thing is that they are better off taking our tanks, they are one third lighter in mass, with equal combat capabilities.

          laughing Then you can just buy our DT-75, cheaper, but the effect is the same.

            DT-75 does not fly, but our tanks yes ... they want to kill two birds with one stone and the Air Force will receive land forces ... if they also sailed ... oh yes, it’s still floating under water, which means the submarine fleet will receive! Three in one will receive with the acquisition of our tanks ...

    This means that our "Dry" is better than the F-16, since they buy from us. They also compared them

      Just do not forget the SU-30MK2 multi-purpose heavy, F-16 light fighter. The F-15 is the thing.

    For me - it’s already necessary to introduce a moratorium on the supply of aircraft to Asians until we equip our own air forces

      Hello dear hi
      And in my opinion it is necessary to act more flexibly?
      To discard outdated and modernized-repaired airplanes at a discount, and the newest ONLY to yourself darling!
      God bless the Air Force !!!

        Then we will have nothing to take to the air at all. We also need to train pilots in new technology. Yes, and there are not many old parks.

          Then we have nothing to lift into the air.

          Well, who says that right away, this is a gradual process.
          It’s not so easy to mix used equipment!
          But it’s better to push someone, maybe even cheaper. Than to dump in a landfill?
          Every year, the process of supplying combat aircraft to our Air Force will only increase, and I know that for sure.

            There Ukrainians sold the T-10K, and not because of money, but to annoy us. For 10 years Poghosyan sold more abroad than we did for 30, and moreover ((((

    Well done Germans - they cheaply buy old tanks and immediately order new ones for themselves.
