I believe that the A330 MRTT is not only the best option there is, but is also the only reasonable one for us...

Indonesia approves USD700 million in foreign loans for aerial tanker buy
by Ridzwan Rahmat

The Indonesian Ministry of Finance (MoF) has granted approval for the country to obtain up to USD700 million in foreign loans to procure two aerial tankers for the Indonesian Air Force (Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Udara: TNI-AU) in 2021.

This was revealed in a notice issued by the MoF on 26 April listing a total of 31 Ministry of Defence (MoD) programmes for which funding through foreign loans has been approved.

Issued after consultations with the MoD and the Ministry of National Development Planning (Kementerian Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional: BAPPENAS), the list, which was initially classified, has been provided to Janes by a government source. The document also shows that a total of 56 requests for foreign funding were rejected.

Janes was first informed by a source at the Singapore Airshow 2018 that the TNI-AU had appointed GMF AeroAsia, a subsidiary of national carrier Garuda Indonesia, for assistance with an in-depth study on Indonesia's aerial refuelling capabilities.

Among the matters that were explored in the study were life cycle costs, local capabilities in maintaining the airframes, compatibility of refuelling methods with the TNI-AU's fleet of aircraft, and inter-operability with existing and future TNI-AU assets.

As part of its findings, the TNI-AU and GMF AeroAsia recommend that the new tankers be equipped with both the probe-and-drogue and flying boom aerial refuelling methods, Janes has learnt.

Prior to the joint study with GMF AeroAsia, the TNI-AU had conducted its own preliminary study comparing Airbus' A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT), Boeing's KC-46A Pegasus, and Russia's four-engined Ilyushin Il-78.

Indonesia commits to increased local content levels in defence
by Jon Grevatt

Indonesia is planning to increase the “domestic content level” of defence products and technologies in operation within the Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI), the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Jakarta has stated.

The intention is aligned with recently enacted national legislation that encourages the country's private sector to play a deeper role in defence research, development, and production activities. The sector has traditionally been dominated by state-run enterprises.

UK government reports export credit arrangements for 2020

by Charles Forrester

The UK's export credit agency, UK Export Financing (UKEF), revealed in its annual report on 22 June that it had underwritten a record GBP12.3 billion (USD17.1 billion) for UK industry during the 2020/21 financial year.


Key transactions in the annual report included the beginning of the drawing of GBP1.13 billion to BAE Systems in support of the manufacture of Eurofighter Typhoon and BAE Systems Hawk trainer aircraft to Qatar. In addition, buyer credit guarantees for Indonesia were supplied for the acquisition of Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules medium transport aircraft (maximum liability of GBP74.6 million) and air-defence systems from Thales UK (maximum liability of GBP29.8 million).

The report also noted that “a strong pipeline of transactions is in place for 2021–22” for defence deals. The organisation is also anticipating a significant transaction in support of the space sector in the coming months, with space also being a potential significant growth area.

The maximum export credit liability for the defence sector in 2020–21 was valued at GBP1.24 billion, representing 10% of overall liability for the UK government. The aerospace sector dominated support during the year, accounting for 59% of export credit liability worth GBP7.07 billion. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the commercial aviation sector drove much of this support, with a total of GBP6.2 billion provided to Rolls-Royce, British Airways, and easyJet for working capital requirements to support ongoing operations.

Some members in other forum feel confused of why UK has relation with this C 130 J. The answer maybe due to the engine which is made by Roll Royce and the air defense system from Thales England could be the flare and chaff for the C 130 J planes ordered by Indonesia.

This is the data shows Indonesian Army personnel numbers and budget for each branch. TNI AD (Army), TNI AL (Navy) and TNI AU (Air Force). Renbut means budget needs and Indikatif means the real allocation from Finance Ministry.

This data is shown by parliament member and shows Indonesian Armed Force total personnel is around 450.000 (Almost half million). If Police paramilitary units like Brimob is included (30.000 personnel) and also Police Sabhara units so the real Indonesian Armed force is already half million (500.000 personnel)

This seems to be the routine annual budget and is not part of the $125B procurement plan... we can see here the army getting the lion share of the budget, simply due to the fact that they have the largest number of personnel... While in the procurement plan the airforce & navy will be getting the lion share of the budget...

btw... DCA with France now formally signed..


also JMSDF naval visit

Look like you are quite late in updating about our procurement plan until 2024. I have posted the link in KFX/IFX thread and I also give some explanation about the number.

Here the Planning Ministry only approve 20 billion USD procurement for Armed Force (2020-2024 period) and the number can be slashed further by Finance Minister if SMI think necessary. At least AH has seen fighter procurement is slashed from 1.6 billion USD approved by Planning Ministry into just 1.1 billion USD by Finance Minister.

Still the budget could be even diverted to buy LIFT advance trainer ( T50 Golden Eagle) as AH reveal where FM approval is for LIFT advance trainer, not fighter. If we see Air Force planning, training aircraft and helicopter acquisition only get 300 million USD foreign loan, so it is not clear whether what has been said recently by AH is for 1.1 billion USD or 300 million USD.

So far Finance Minister has rejected 56 foreign loan for defense procurement (Jane Defense report) and just release the funding for equipment that our local industry hasnt got the program until the next 10 years (MRTT, LIFT advance trainer, Big transport plane ( C 130 J), and other program (backed by foreign loan) that include local defense industry participation (modernization of Usman Harun Corvette) and frigate (Iver with all ships built in PT PAL) and submarines (Changbogo where cooperation with PT PAL and complete third submarine building in PT PAL).

Here about the Planning Minister only approve 20 billion USD for defense procurement (foreign + local acquisition)
