    Indonesia doesnt see Singapore as a threat but Singapore indeed see Indonesia and Malaysia as a threat, this is why they spent so much on defense. For Indonesian perspective, taking Singapore island is not really beneficial since there is no spare land available in Singapore so that Singapore need to do land reclamation if they want to do big property project. This condition makes the scenario to take Singapore is not really interesting for us. Scenario to take other part of Borneo island (Malaysian side) is much more interesting.

    Indonesia also has Bintan island which is located very near to Singapore and still relatively empty. The land is also bigger than Singapore and unlike Singapore, it has its own water supply, thats why it is a much more promising land than Singapore and it is also located in the same strategic location. This is the second main reason of why Indonesia doesnt want to invade Singapore. The third reason is because Singapore is one of the main investor in Indonesia, destroying Singapore will eliminate the flow of investment that Indonesian economy enjoy for so long.

    But if we want to do some kind of hypothetical war scenario between two nations, I would suggest Indonesia to keep its research on cruise missile technology. Indonesia also need to buy several 100-200 km range SAM system and put it on Sumatra island (Riau province) to pacify Singapore Air Force. Rhan 450 can also be used to do bombing from a save place and quite far away from Singapore missile land attack defense system but should only be used after we manage to make guidance system for this missile so that only military target that we are going to hit.

    Indonesian Aerospace (IAe) Ready to Offer CN235 MPA to the Royal Thai Navy

    05 Desember 2019


    [​IMG]
    CN235 MPA for Royal Thai Navy (all photos : TAF)

    According to the policy of the Naval Commander, Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) Project to replace the two long-used and remaining F-27 Mk 200 models, plans to restart in fiscal year 2021 after the canceled earlier.

    The CN235 MPA model that IAe exhibited at the Defense and Security 2019 event was modified from the CN235-220 transporter (with winglet) with a ground floor underwater radar. Target tracking system under the head, ESM system above the cockpit, alerts and drop target system to protect yourself from being hit by a rocket, and equipped with 2 sets of observation windows.


    [​IMG]

    For the weapon system, there are 2 weapon points under each wing and 2 weapons on each side of the body. The weapons equipped with 4 light torpedoes, 2 mines, 2 sets of 7 rocket launchers (which choose 2.75 inch rockets, can be guided by choosing an optonics with a laser target). In addition, the left side of the body still attached to the machine gun from the side door which should be a 30 mm gun, with what is missing is the MAD system at the tail (there is a socket but not attached).

    From the mounted weapons set if the navy chooses to do all of this, besides using the CN235-220 MPA in the submarine warfare mission and anti surface ships, aircraft could be used in a mission to support land forces (as gunship).


    [​IMG]

    The CN235-220 MPA has a Hi-Lo-Hi operating time of 11 hours and 20 minutes, 100 miles from the base of the sea, flying patrolling at 2,000 feet for 10 hours and 10 minutes, flying back and forth at a height of 10,000 feet, and has reserve to fly, wait another 45 minutes

    Can choose to install anti-surface missiles such as Harpoon or Exocet.

    R 80 aircraft undergoing wind tunnel test in BPPT wind tunnel facility. I wonder whether government is going to finance this project or not ? I hope government finance it so that PT RAI and PTDI will be collaborated in this project. We can speed up our progress in turboprop class passenger aircraft if this project get government financing and since PT DI will likely become the production facility of this aircraft, it means it has possibility to increase PTDI production capacity.

    I also hope there is collaboration between PT RAI engineers who consist of highly experience engineers who has experience in N 250 and N2130 program and also in Boeing/Airbus companies with PT DI young designers, so there is transfer of knowledge going on.

    Aceh Buy 4 Units of N219 Aircraft Made by PTDI worth Rp 336 Billion

    [​IMG]
    2019-12-11 00:00:00

    TEMPO.CO, Bandung - Acting Governor (PLT) Aceh Governor Nova Iriansyah signed a memorandum of understanding on the plan to purchase 4 N219 aircraft with Managing Director of PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) Elfien Goentoro, today, Monday, 9 December 2019. "This memorandum of understanding will soon turn into a contract. Of the four planes, one will be sent in 2021, and three in 2022, "said Director of PT Dirgantara Indonesia, Elfien Goentoro, in Bandung, Monday, December 9, 2019.

    Elfien said, the N219 pilot aircraft named after President Joko Widodo by the name of Nurtanio was targeted to obtain a Type Certificata (TC) from the Ministry of Transportation later this year. After pocketing the certification, N219 aircraft will begin to enter the production phase. "Hopefully it does not shift," he said.

    Elfien said that the text of understanding that would be the material of the contract did not merely contain the matter of purchasing the N219 aircraft. "What is expected from the Aceh government is the development of human resources, and the development of the operation of the aircraft itself. So this is part of an inseparable contract, which we will soon realize, "he said.

    Elfien said that in the first phase, PTDI plans to prepare production capacity for 6 N1219 aircraft in the first year, afer that the capacity is gradually increased. "We have 6 existing facilities. So later it is planned to build facilities that can (produce) 36 aircraft per year, "he said.

    Elifien said, besides Aceh, Papua had also seriously bought an N219 aircraft developed by PT Dirgantara Indonesia together with Lapan. The two provinces compete to be the first buyers of N219 aircraft. "Indeed, the Aceh government's request to be the first delivery, also includes the Papua regional government that has signed it. This became PT DI's target after producing the first one, "he said.

    Commercial Director of PT Dirgantara Indonesia, Ade Yuyu Wahyuna, said that the N219 aircraft sales price for the Aceh government had exceeded 6 million US dollars per unit. "The payment scheme, we follow the source of the budget, namely APBA (Aceh Revenue and Expenditure Budget). There will be stages in accordance with the production progress, "he said, Monday, December 9, 2019.

    Acting Governor (PLT) Aceh Governor Nova Iriansyah said, the text of understanding that was signed today, Monday, December 9, 2019, was an update of the text of understanding of the plan to purchase the N219 aircraft which was previously signed by Aceh Governor Irwansyah with PT Dirgantara Indonesia in Singapore in 2018. "We renew the MOU in 2018, because there are some things that must be adjusted to the latest conditions," he said, Monday, 9 December 2019.

    Nova justified the purchase price of the plane through US $ 6 million per unit. The purchase will be paid multiyears with APBA, Aceh's government budget in two years. "Rp. 84 billion is more or less," he said.

    Nova said that in 2022 the N219 aircraft was expected to be owned by Aceh. "If the ideal needs are, of course there are many. But we hope that in 2022 there will be 4 (units) first, according to the regional financial capacity, "he said.

    He admitted, there had been a controversy over the plan to buy a plane by the Aceh government. Nova reasoned, accelerating the development of Aceh needs to develop transportation modes.

    Aceh has an area of 59 thousand square kilometers. The distance of land vehicles can penetrate dozens of hours. Aceh, with a coastline of 2,600 kilometers, has not only reached land. "With a total of 180 islands. And of all the islands, 44 of them inhabited. The vast territory became a challenge, "he said.

    He admitted, Aceh not only bought 4 N219 aircraft to build air connectivity, but also 3 units of RoRo ships to build inter-island shipping connectivity. "This year we ordered 3 RoRo crossings, from Bangkalan and Tanjung Balai Karimun, with the Aceh Revenue and Belanca Budget, or APBA. God willing, multiyears, a 2-year contract. In April 2020 we will receive it, "Nova said.

    Nova said the first N219 aircraft to be received by Aceh would be used as a Flying Ambulance. "We in Aceh guarantee public health, even in remote areas. Yesterday we had to rent a plane, "he said.

    The aircraft will also be used to oversee the Aceh region to prevent forest encroachment. "A lot of theft of our natural wealth takes place at sea, and illegal logging because the coastline is so long, the territory is so wide," Nova said.


    Nova said, Aceh was also considering developing commercial aircraft transportation services for its citizens to support connectivity with the existence of 7 airports spread throughout its territory. "The most suitable pioneer aircraft for the geographical and natural conditions of the area was N219," he said
