The Sightings: RMAF’s Camar Ready

A picture taken by planespotter in Bandung, Indonesia went viral in Malaysia recently as it indicate that at least one of the three Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) IAe CN-235-220M maritime surveillance aircraft (MSA) is ready after undergoing almost a year long modifications.

That said, the picture validates several modifications previously speculated to be incorporated into the three Malaysian aircraft.

These iinclude the chin mounted Electro Optical/Infra Red (EO/IR) camera turret with search light for night time operation. At least one bubble window was fitted at the aft of the aircraft.

No belly mounted radar dome could be seen from the picture as its view was obstructed by an aircraft push back vehicle.

PT Lundin Launches New Stealth Trimaran Vessel For Indonesian Navy

1629624806332.png


Indonesian shipbuilder PT Lundin (also known as North Sea Boats) today launched a new Fast Attack Craft Trimaran for the Indonesian Navy (TNI AL). KRI Golok (688) was named during an official ceremony at the shipyard in Banyuwangi (East Java) in presence of the Chief of Staff of the Navy, Admiral Yudo Margono.

Xavier Vavasseur 21 Aug 2021

During the ceremony, Admiral Margono said that the Trimaran was the first ship made of composite material which has the advantages of high specific strength, lighter weight, and has excellent fatigue resistance and corrosion resistance. Therefore, this ship can be used as a prototype trimaran ship, for development purpose.

“The philosophical meaning of naming this ship is that KRI Golok-688 should be used to carry out any given operational task, both Military Operations for War (MOOW) and Military operations other than war (MOOTW). With its high speed and high destructive power, it is hoped that this ship will be able to carry out the hit and run fast missile boat tactic,”


Chief of Staff of the Indonesian Navy, Admiral Yudo Margono
In addition, Admiral Margono revealed that the construction of the Trimaran ship certainly has a very strategic meaning: PT. Lundin Industry Invest is one of the national defense industries that has succeeded in developing defense industry technology for the national interest, in an effort to reduce dependence on other countries regarding the procurement of the Indonesian Navy’s equipment in the future.

According to a TNI AL statement, KRI Golok (688) has a total length (Loa) of 62.53 meters, a width of 16 meters, a ship height of 18.7 meters and a weight of 53.1 tons (ed. note: PT Lundin mentions a displacement of 245 tons). Maximum speed of 28 knots, cruising speed of 16 knots. The vessel is armed with 30 mm cannon and 12.7 mm gun and is capable of carrying 25 crew members.

According to PT Lundin:
The Fast Attack Craft (FAC) employs a modern “Wave Piercing” trimaran design. This allows the vessel to cut-through waves rather than rise up and over them, and the increased beam provides inherent stability. This combination of features reduces both pitching and rolling, creating a stable weapons platform, and enabling the vessel to comfortably and safely maintain higher average speeds in adverse conditions. The FAC has “Stealth” design characteristics, and incorporate features that minimise detection by reducing Radar, Infra-Red, Acoustic and Magnetic signatures. Stealth properties are further improved as there are no reverse-angle bow overhangs to reflect radar signals, as seen on conventional hull forms. Weaponry, including missiles and naval guns, and the ships 11 m high-speed RHIB, are discreetly concealed or shaped to meld into the superstructure profile.
KRI Golok (688) is the second vessel of the “X3K” type built by PT Lundin. The first one, KRI Klewang, was launched in August 2012. However the first-in-class ship was destroyed a month later, following a fire that broke out during fitting out. Earlier this year, the shipbuilder launched and started sea trials of another unique design: the X18 Combat Boat also known as “Tank Boat”.

The expected commissioning date of the ship is for now unknown. Naval News reached out to PT Lundin for comments but we have yet to hear back from the local shipbuilder.

Indonesian Shipyard Cuts Steel On New OPVs For TNI AL

Indonesian shipbuilder DRU Shipyards (PT Daya Radar Utama DRU) cut steel for two new Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV) for the Indonesian Navy (TNI AL). The ceremony took place on 26 August 2021 in Lampung (island of Sumatra).
Martin Manaranche 27 Aug 2021


According to an Indonesian MoD release, these OPVs are meant to strengthen Indonesian naval power and to fullfill a gap in the patrol boats segment.

“The construction of the ’90-meter OPV’ and ‘OPV’ is a form of promoting the national defense industry to increase the capacity and expertise in the construction of warships in the future, as well as encourage the recovery of the national economy.”

Head of the Defense Facilities Agency (Kabaranahan), Kemhan Marsda TNI Yusuf Jauhari.

This still needs to be confirmed formally, but according to our information, both OPVs are set to have a length of 90 meters, a width of 13.5 meters and will be powered by four 7,280 KW diesel engines. Both should be able to reach a maximum speed of 28 knots. However one is expected to feature equipment to accommodate a helicopter (helideck and hangar) while the other OPV will lack such facilities.

DRU Shipyard released a design video of the ’90-meter OPV’. Regarding the weapons, she seems to be equipped with a Rheinmetall Millennium Gun 35mm caliber mounted on the hangar, 2×4 anti-ship missile (likely MM40 Exocet) launchers on the amidship and an OTO Melara 76 mm Super Rapid Gun forward.

For VBSS (Visit, Board, Search and Seizure) purposes, there are two RHIB (rigid hull inflatable boat) launch loading ramps located at the stern:

INKA and BPPT Will Build Battery Powered Fast Trains

Not only with BPPT, INKA also collaborates with the National Research Priority Consortium of Railway Technology. It includes a number of universities such as ITB, ITS, UNS, and UGM and several industries related to railways, namely PT INKA (Persero) and PT Pindad (Persero).

Newswire - Bisnis.com 18 August 2021 | 09:55 WIB Bisnis.com,

JAKARTA - PT INKA (Persero) and the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) as well as several universities and companies are preparing plans to make fast trains with the ability to travel more than 200 kilometers per hour.

This train will later be operated on the Makassar-Pare Pare route. Not only fast, the train will use battery technology. "We are ready to operate the fast train produced by domestic children, chaired by BPPT, with "hybrid battery" technology in 2022," said INKA Development Director Agung Sedaju at an online seminar entitled "Readiness of the Makassar–Pare Pare Railway" in Madiun, citing Antara, Wednesday (18/8/2021).

Not only with BPPT, INKA also collaborates with the National Research Priority Consortium of Railway Technology. It includes a number of universities such as ITB, ITS, UNS, and UGM and several industries related to railways, namely PT INKA (Persero) and PT Pindad (Persero).

Director of the BPPT Transportation Infrastructure and System Technology Center Muljadi Sinung Harjono said that BPPT has a target to immediately make a prototype of a fast train with a speed of over 200 kilometers per hour. "In 2020, we have completed the DR and O targets ("design requirements and objectives") or technical pre-specifications. As well as the completion of "basic and manufacture design" in 2021.

While in 2022, we have a budget plan for the construction of prototype facilities fast trains," said Muljadi Sinung. Therefore, he continued, a location is needed for the actual test of fast trains with speeds above 200 kilometers per hour along 20 kilometers with sufficient "track" width. He added, after the prototype is finished, at the end of 2022, he hopes that the prototype can be used as part of a passenger train fleet that can meet field needs.

For the missile, Indonesia Aerospace (PTDI) Director mentioned again last week. This program look like keep getting funding. While we see there is a foreign company that is interested to set up the defense related factory here, this particular investment look like to produce military grade engine in Indonesia as previous news reveals

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Last year news

PT DI, which specializes in aircraft manufacturing, is in the process of developing a missile to complement its 70-millimeter folding fin aerial rocket launcher, which has been fitted onto the Air Force’s F-16 jets, said president director Elfien Goentoro. The missile is being developed by a consortium led by the company and includes other SOEs such as PT Len Industri, PT Pindad, PT TRESS and explosives maker PT Dahana.

“This program is only in its second year [...] the aim is to design several systems such as flight control systems, warheads and jet engines, among others,” Elfien told the Post. The firm is also developing a medium-altitude long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle dubbed the Elang Hitam through another consortium involving the Defense Ministry and the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT).

The combat UAV is expected to enter production in 2024, even though Jokowi requested in February the fast-tracking of the development to 2022, which would raise the investment cost to Rp 1.1 trillion. But Elfien said it was unlikely to meet the target, considering that many of the existing budget items, including PT DI’s own programs, were reallocated for the COVID-19 response.

Meanwhile, PT Pindad will be modernizing its production line to ramp up its ammunition-manufacturing capacity to 1 billion rounds per year, up from the current 250 million rounds per year, said president director Abraham Mose. The company was also instructed to modernize its production line for combat vehicles and small arms production. The Defense Ministry had already agreed to act as an off-taker for PT Pindad’s ammunition and combat vehicle products, Abraham said, which helped the company in seeking loans to upgrade its manufacturing capacity. “Going forward, we expect vendors to be willing to build a factory in Indonesia to manufacture the [vehicle] engines,” he said.

Bandung, August 30, 2021 – PR PTDI

In the midst of declining conditions in the industrial sector, PT Dirgantara Indonesia (Persero) / PTDI is targeting to complete three National Strategic Programs. Not only to be a part of connecting all parts of Indonesia, but also to be part of the independence of the domestic defense industry and to maintain national security.

This pandemic condition has caused a decline in the global aerospace market by up to 40 percent, PTDI is no exception. PTDI President Director Elfien Goentoro said "That in 2019 PTDI made a profit of Rp. 150 billion, due to the pandemic, our loading was only 40 percent. But this year, PTDI is still continuing the Three National Strategic Programs, namely PUNA Elang Hitam ( Medium Altitude Long Endurance Unmanned Aircraft ) with the first flight target at the end of 2021. As for the N219 Amphibious Aircraft (N219A) and the National Missile, the plan is to get certified in 2024.”

Elfien Goentoro also revealed that this amphibious type aircraft can connect between islands in Indonesia, which fits perfectly with the geographical conditions of Indonesia, which is an archipelagic country with 17,000 islands. The existence of PTDI as a domestic producer is very important, an Indonesian aerospace industry that produces its products to support the fulfillment of connectivity and pioneer aviation needs in Indonesia, as well as to accelerate Indonesia's economic growth more evenly. “Flights and shipping are an important part of a country like Indonesia. Its function is to reach and connect the 3T regions, namely the outermost, leading and lagging areas.” he added.

For the N219A aircraft, the need is to reduce the presence of airport or airport infrastructure developments. "It will also accelerate the tourism sector. Since it can be landing in the coastal areas of the island tourist travel destination. " he added.

PUNA Black Eagle:

The defense and security sector is filled with the development of the Black Eagle Unmanned Aircraft (PUNA). Together with the consortium, we will continue development to the combatant level in accordance with the direction of the President of the Republic of Indonesia in guarding Indonesian territory in the border area.

Mastery of the Black Eagle PUNA technology can be a means for the advancement of national defense technology which can gradually build the independence of the domestic defense industry to meet the needs of the Main Weapon System Equipment (Alutsista) for the TNI. This is intended to produce MALE combatant drone products that can be accepted by the Indonesian Air Force in accordance with operational requirements and technical specifications.

N219A:

Together with the National Research Priority Consortium (PRN), currently developing a floater (a pair of buoyancy legs) for the N219 amphibious aircraft , which will then be placed under the fuselage as a replacement for the landing gear, so that it can take off and land. (landing) above the water surface.

NATIONAL MISSILE:

The National Missile Program is run in a consortium consisting of PTDI as the lead integrator, PT Len Industri (Persero), PT Pindad (Persero) and PT Mulatama, developing missiles (Surface to Surface) in order to realize the independence of the domestic defense industry. To meet the needs of the Main Weapon System Equipment (Alutsista) for the TNI. Certification target for 2024.

The addition completed the three National Strategic Program, now PT DI also still completing some contract runs either from the customer in the country and abroad. For domestic customers , some of which are the fulfillment of contracts for 9 (nine) units of Bell 412EPI TNI AD helicopters, where until now PTDI has successfully delivered 5 units. In addition, in the near future, delivery is also planned1 (one) unit of NC212i aircraft to the Indonesian Ministry of Defense for the Indonesian Air Force, which is the second aircraft delivered from a total of 9 (nine) NC212i aircraft as stated in the procurement contract agreement with the Indonesian Ministry of Defense. Likewise, the completion of the contract for 1 (one) unit of CN235 aircraft with the Indonesian Ministry of Defense for the Indonesian Navy, which is targeted to be delivered in the first quarter of 2022. As for overseas customers , the production process has also started to fulfill the contract for 1 (one) unit. NC212i aircraft for MOAC Thailand.

In addition to the completion of ongoing contracts for aircraft and helicopters, PTDI is also still running the Aerostructure business through strategic alliances/partnerships with the global aviation industry, some of which are the Airbus Group, Bell Helicopters and Spirit Aerosystems. Similarly, employment contracts Services both from customers in domestic and abroad, which is also currently developing a concept map prepared MRO business, so then the MRO business can be used as a recurring income PTDI future.
