    I only hoped that the medium range SAM would be dual-role AKA both Area Defense and Field Defense, of which they are also mobile and not stationary like the Skyshield, but for initial orders, i think i could accept a stationary SAM. NASAMS 2 is a good choice if we consider the logistical aspect, that the platform used AMRAAM, making it simpler to provide munitions for it, as it is the same thing used in F-16. But, it also have with it's own special, enlarged AMRAAM that have greater range than the standart missile, only if we really consider them tho.

    Transport helicopters may have more time, there's no need to rush their acquisition, cause they are not among the "key" element that we urgently need to possess in ideal number by the end of MEF, they are not a game-changer, but they are indeed an important element for mobility, logistics and non-combat operation. I'm just hoping that we'll maintain the quality and readiness of the fleets, cut the unnecessary part and replace the aging one, i imagined a fleet of mainly AH-64E, Mi-17, Caracal, Bell 412 , and Panther (btw i've yet understand the purpose of Mi-35 in the Army, how and why they are there to begin with?), even if it's a nuisance, i'd still like to see a Chinook, i've already liked the thing since i was a kid, so i can't help lol.

    Prioritizing AMRAAM acqusition is something that the government should be doing right now, but at least they ordered some lately, i expected that if the MoD go on with the Viper acquisition, there will also be a huge deal for AMRAAM and Sidewinders. What bothered me, is that KFX/IFX models, especially the IFX variant, often shown armed with Meteor and IRIS-T.

    Well, that's up to them what kind of missiles they'd like to use, as having KFX/IFX fly and enter production is a much more important thing to think about.

    I believe, we'll go for guided rocket, land attack missiles and cruise missile first, and only then we're going to go to AAM sector. Obviously, the use of Vampir, and truck mounted platform as a test bed, heavily imply the use for Army purposes, possibly first as a locally-made rocket artillery munition, then as a guided munitions, but still for land target. Probably, it will be very similar to Brazil's military rocket development, perhaps we're going to see local-made 122mm, 300mm, and 450mm rocket munition for use in Vampir, ASTROS and even future indigenous rocket artillery platform. AAM and SAM sector is very tricky and currently we are yet to possess seeker and advanced guidance technology, perhaps 2028 onwards we'll see a noteworthy development. I suggest that we going hand-in-hand with the Koreans cause it seems like they are currently interested in developing an indigenous AAM, not to mention they are already successfully mastering cruise missile technology, VLS missiles and Naval guided rockets. I am among the most avid supporter of Indonesia-South Korea cooperation, i believe that we could get many things by working along with them.

    I am neutral regarding whether there will be war or not, the question is not when we have to be ready, cause obviously we have to be ready at all time, we cannot rely on fate alone and hoped a war won't be coming soon, the world is dangerously random, preying on anyone off-guard. 15-20 years is too far of a stretch, nobody is able to tell what could happen in 15 years, cause imagine yourself in 2005, could you imagine this world of smartphones and digital social networking back then? My opinion is that defense development should not be based on how there would be no war, but instead of how there would be war. Being adequate alone does gives a capability to fight, but not necessarily the capability to win, being passive does not guarantee victory nor cement our position in the region. History prove time after time that the one with more willpower and persistence to win, is the one end up winning.

    The Visit of Repulic of Korea Air Force to PT NTP
    Monday, 06 May 2019

    On April 24, 2019, PT Nusantara Turbin and Propulsion (NTP) received a delegation visit from the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF). One of the agenda was to discuss the work of the ROKAF aircraft engine. NTP is trusted by ROKAF to work on CT7 and DART7 engine overhauls. The CT7 engine is installed on CN-235 aircraft which are operated as ROKAF military transport aircraft, while the DART7 engine is installed on the HS 748 aircraft operated by ROKAF.

    During the visit, ROKAF had the opportunity to see firsthand NTP facility for the overhaul process including the test cell facility for the CT7 and DART engines. Mr. Heru Widodo (VP of Sales Marketing), Mr. Budi Setiono (Sales Manager) and personnel from Engineering played an active role in welcoming and assisting ROKAF delegates during their visit at NTP. The collaboration between ROKAF and NTP is expected to continue as a synergy that is mutually beneficial for both parties in the future.

    5G Communication satellite ordered by Kemenkominfo provided by Thales. This isn't 1st time Thales provided us satellite communication systems; we had interact with them since Palapa. It is expected to be launched in 2022 and to serve 15 years life time service.
