Indonesia introduced its first tank



Indonesian company PT Pindad introduced its first own tank development of

About this with reference to the press secretary of the company Tuning Rudiyanti (Tuning Rudiyanti) reports the local edition of Detik Finance.

Medium tank on a tracked platform received the name SBS. Currently, as Rudiyanti explained, only the prototype of the combat vehicle is ready, which, after revision, will be sent for certification to the Ministry of Defense of the country.

The representative of PT Pindad did not report anything about the armament of the SBS, but in the published photograph a machine gun was mounted on the tank hull. The layout itself resembles the Anoa wheeled infantry fighting vehicles, also produced by the company. The publication also noted the similarities between the SBS and the German BMP Marder - 50 such machines Jakarta had previously planned to buy in Germany.

In the spring of 2013 year and it became known that Indonesia, together with Turkey, began to develop new armored vehicles. Subsequently, it was reported that we are talking about the creation of medium tanks, but officially the details of the project were not disclosed.

Russia also announced its readiness to help Indonesia develop tanks in 2012. Then the representatives of Rosoboronexport told that they could contribute to the creation of a light tank platform.

Currently, the Indonesian army is armed with German main battle tanks Leopard 2 and French light tanks AMX-13.

    Need to help Indonesia! And there you look, they’ll spit on this matter and our finished tanks will buy (or assemble from our parts ...)))

        They need to invent a floating armored personnel carrier with good seaworthiness, and not a tank. Where in the country of 1000 islands to use tanks?

          Kalimantan island in Indonesia is slightly smaller than France and Germany combined. Do you think they have nowhere to use tanks?

            17 thousand 504 islands ", - Director of Small Islands Empowerment, Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries Dr. Alex SW Retraubun said in an interview with RIA Novosti.

            And only a dozen of them really have a size of more than a hundred square kilometers. The state should think about the whole country. It would be logical to work with Gibbs Technologies to create universal technology used in two environments.

              I have doubts whether a beautifully gliding APC will get stuck in the mud of the local off-road, or when entering a swampy shore. Wheels "bent" during floating do not impress with either the diameter or the width of the tires - factors directly affecting the passability. And the mechanism of their lifting and release, hidden in the body, will inevitably "eat up" a significant internal volume. Remember any modernization of the BRDM 2 - the additional wheels and their drives are surgically removed first.
              And the sample you showed in the photo is a typical example of a very narrow specialization technique, which naturally has the right to life, but it’s hard to imagine it except for the grunting engine to get to the sloping beach for the police operation in the nearby village of Papuans.

                I mentioned this sample for general understanding and do not insist on it. The country of 17 thousand islands is building tanks. It is the tank’s inferiority in terms of movement around the islands that causes a little misunderstanding. And Gibbs just does its job well.

          Why do they need an armored personnel carrier? BMP-3 in the modification for the MP and a couple of dozen T-72 to cover the capital.

        "Kurganmashzavod will sell infantry fighting vehicles (BMP-3F) to Indonesia, which the Russian Defense Ministry refuses to buy. As a source in the military-industrial complex told Izvestia, in the next two years about 60 vehicles will go to the Asian country for a total of more than $ 100 million."
        http://izvestia.ru/news/513601#ixzz2jV6rdX61

        Our marines, BMP 3F, need it like air (armored vehicles alone BTR80 / 82). How to fight without tanks and infantry fighting vehicles ???
        But Indonesia buys, also in an improved version, a weathering 3-point storm.

            Indonesia introduced its first tank

            "Military Parity. The governments of Indonesia and South Korea have agreed to jointly develop an armored personnel carrier and a tank. In Jakarta, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between PT Pindad and Busan Ltd. on Friday."
            http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2011/09/10/ri-korea-hammer-out-deal-develop-t



            anks.html

            The light tank will be similar to the K-21 IFV manufactured by Doosan DST South Korea.
            And that she just released (Indonesia) Tank APC, just a prototype of the local military-industrial complex, which will never go into series.

          most likely this is just a platform on which a machine gun was installed (or a 20-30mm gun). but on the basis of this platform they are going to make tanks.
