It seems there is quite good amount of money dedicated to fund the maintenance of our Armed Force equipment. There is plan as well to do overhaul into about 8 CN 235 that are grounded due to lack of maintenance budget. I hope this maintenance needs get more prioritized as many of the work also involves Indonesian local industry and it is particularly important to protect and secure our personnel lifes, we dont want want happen with previous Submarine incident happen again in the future

Babcock sells first new frigate design licence to Indonesia

Babcock the aerospace, defence and security company has secured the first export contract for its Arrowhead 140 (AH140) frigate through a design licence agreement with PT PAL Indonesia (Persero), a state-owned enterprise that builds and maintains ships for military and commercial use from its facilities in Surabaya, Indonesia.


The breakthrough deal comes two years since Babcock’s AH140 design was first announced as the preferred bidder for the UK Type 31 frigate programme at DSEI 2019, with the contract confirmed in November of the same year.


The design licence will enable PAL to build two Arrowhead 140 frigates in Indonesia with bespoke design modifications for the Indonesian Navy.


The agreement was signed at the Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) 2021 event in London, on board HMS Argyll, by David Lockwood CEO Babcock and Kaharuddin Djenod, CEO PAL. And was witnessed by the Defence Minister of Indonesia, Prabowo Subianto and UK Defence Secretary, Rt Hon Ben Wallace MP.


Babcock has been working alongside the UK Government to promote the Arrowhead 140 Frigate into the global market with strong interest internationally. The company recently announced that it was one of the bidders down selected by the Polish Government to provide a potential design solution for the Polish Navy’s Miecznik (Swordfish) frigate programme.


The baseline Arrowhead 140 design can be configured to meet a broad range of naval requirements and, with Babcock’s support PAL will now engineer the required modifications to configure the Arrowhead 140 for the Indonesian customer.


David Lockwood, CEO Babcock said:


“Today is a really exciting moment for Babcock and our frigate export programme, as we sign the design licence with PAL for two new frigates for the Indonesian Navy.


“The beauty of our export product is that it is a readily transferable design that can be tailored to the customer’s needs as part of our strong Arrowhead frigate portfolio. What’s more, the design licence and subsequent build programme will be a significant catalyst for prosperity in Indonesia.


“Working with our Indonesian colleagues this contract will see Arrowhead 140 frigates built in Indonesia, by the local workforce, contributing directly to the social and economic value of its sovereign shipbuilding community and country as a whole. We look forward to further opportunities to support PAL as the programme matures.


“It’s a proud day for the Babcock and PAL teams.”


Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said:

“I was delighted to attend the contract signing between Babcock and Indonesia on board HMS Argyll today, representing the best of British maritime design and engineering to our international partners.


“Signalling the strength of our defence relationship with Indonesia, both of our Naval Forces will operate this world-leading frigate in the future and will work closely together to protect our mutual interests around the world.” The Arrowhead 140 frigate design, benefits from a proven hull-form that has been tried and tested in real-world operational environments from NATO and coalition task forces to national regional and deployed operations. The baseline Arrowhead 140 design can be configured to meet a broad range of operational requirements and profiles a global frigate may be called upon to undertake and adopt and with a growing number of users it can also support interoperability between naval allies.

question,
but will the contract for the new frigates be with the Italian shipyards Fincantieri (FREEM frigates) or with Great Britain for the AH-140 frigates?
https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/uk-wins-indonesian-export-contract-for-new-frigates/
FREEM contract is very difficult to be effective because :

1. Minister of planning and Minister of Finance havent approved the project
2. FREEM frigates doesnt provide high local content to Indonesia local industry
3. Financial situation (You can look on previous page and read Alman Helvast article in CNBC to understand the clear picture)
4. After buying Babcock Iver design and getting TOT to make 2 of them, the most logical tendency is to keep building more Iver frigates in the country

Singapore and Indonesian Commandos Conclude Exercise Chandrapura
News Releases | 03 Sep 2021 17:00 (GMT+8)

The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Commandos and the Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI) Special Forces Command (KOPASSUS) successfully concluded Exercise Chandrapura (XCP) 2021. Held virtually from 1 to 3 September, this year's edition of the annual bilateral exercise involved professional exchanges and a table-top exercise (TTX) to build stronger bonds and strengthen mutual understanding between the two militaries.

During the exercise, personnel from the SAF's 1st Commando Battalion and the TNI KOPASSUS' 23rd Battalion exchanged knowledge in commando tactics, techniques, and planning procedures. This year's exercise culminated in a TTX where both armed forces jointly developed an operation plan to conduct an attack operation on an enemy objective.
XCP 2021 concluded with a symbolic exchange of airborne wings during the closing ceremony, which was co-officiated by the SAF's Chief Commando Officer Colonel (COL) Kenny Tay and the TNI's Danjen KOPASSUS, Major General Mohammad Hasan. In his closing speech, COL Kenny Tay commended the successful conduct of the exercise. He said, "I am impressed with the high level of commitment to mutual cooperation by both units manifested throughout the exercise. Alone we can accomplish little, but we can achieve much together. I hope our cooperation and good relations will grow from strength to strength."

First conducted in 1994, this year marked the 27th edition in the series and underscores the close and long-standing defence relations between Singapore and Indonesia. Besides bilateral exercises, the Singapore and Indonesian armies engage in a wide range of activities such as visits, professional exchanges and cross-attendance of courses. These regular interactions enhance the interoperability and foster mutual understanding between the two armed forces.
