Indonesia may acquire a large number of fighter "dry"

The Indonesian Defense Forces announced plans to train new pilots and to form 8 fighter squadrons, reports Jakarta Globe 27 September.


“We hope that we will have eight fighter squadrons by 2024,” said the Chief Marshal aviation Ida Bagus Putu Dunia on Wednesday after receiving another six Su-30MK2 fighters from Russia. As expected, each squadron will consist of 16 Sukhoi fighters. Marshall said that these fighters will create “powerful deterrence forces” that will strengthen the combat capabilities of the Indonesian Air Force. By agreement with Russia, pilots will be trained at the Khasanuddin Air Force Base. “Sukhoi's technologies meet the highest requirements and keep up with the times. We have enough pilots to control these fighters, but we are also preparing new pilots for new fighters, ”said the marshal.

Ida also added that the Air Force will replace the old F-5 Tiger fighter jets. The base "Hasanuddin" is fully equipped with new aircraft weapons, including ammunition, confirmed the Marshal. Purnomo Yusgiantoro, the country's defense minister, also confirmed plans to replace the F-5. In addition to the Sukhoi aircraft, the military also received one squadron of training and combat T-50 airplanes of South Korean production (the base of Iswahudi Madiun, East Java).

Meanwhile, human rights advocates expressed concern about the purchase in the UK of “sophisticated spy equipment” by Gamma TSE, which has history cooperation with "despotic regimes". But a spokesman for the Ministry of Defense, Brigadier General Sisriadi, said that the acquisition of new reconnaissance equipment was part of efforts to modernize the main weapons systems and it was necessary to exchange information inside the country's armed forces in order to prevent its interception by "irresponsible parties."

“We will use this equipment only in the interests of strategic defense, and not for criminal purposes,” said the Minister of Defense.

      This is good.
      Okay, that's okay. But maybe then it is worth considering the issue of increasing production capacities, otherwise their own Air Force fly on "old" machines, and "new" ones mainly go abroad ...

        This is already a question for our president and the government, which in the fat years they fucked up horseradish and did not build the corresponding factories, but only spread the manila industry on TV, they say we will build 500 planes, 100 ships, etc.

        Capacities will gradually increase, and when there are no foreign orders, they will deliver to their Air Force! So far, that walrus from selling aircraft abroad is higher, then foreign deliveries will be a priority !!!

        Unfortunately KnAZ is not IRKUT !!!! The Irkutsk people are capable of ... expanding and increasing ... and the production of the Su-30SM and any MK ... for "foreign customers" do not depend on each other.
        the first after God Misha even on his own super-duper cannot "expand" production request

      But in my opinion not very good! As I wrote a month ago .. about another fellow articles and "contract" about 16 Su-30M2 for the Russian Air Force -... "will be if the Indonesians or Vietnamese do not want to, but the numbers are the same ... 16".
      Here is the answer! wassat
      So what about what for years to come ... but how does this affect the "working class" wink salaries were 16-25 thousand .. and remain.
      so then ..good ?????

        Well, if the new aircraft for the Russian air force depend on what the Vietnamese or Indonesians do not want, then we can definitely say that, nothing good.

      Indonesia is a kind of country, it will be good if they complete a pair of wings for 16 cars for 3-4 years, and you can say so much and anything and stretch the contract for 10 years, which is not the best option in this situation.

      Well, as I understand it, they want to bring up to 8 squadrons. there is already a certain amount.
      According to the info from the wiki, they have about 12 LA Sukhoi of various modifications. If they decide on such a contract, then its implementation can stretch for five years quietly. Our defense industry seems to be counting on reaching a thorough replenishment and renewal of the park after 2015, and before that they will customize the defense industry.

    I hear an old song. As soon as it became known about the purchases of Russian weapons, "human rights defenders" were immediately alarmed.

    Well done Indonesia that they are buying our "dry", they know what to fly. And they do not rush with a choice, like some states. And it is easier to service when the types of aircraft are from the same company.
