    The monocoque steel body is made by PT Krakatau Steel, Indonesian state owned steel company.

    Designation:
    KOMODO

    Manufacturer: PT. Pindad (Persero)
    Product type: Auxiliary Vehicles
    Name: Tactical vehicle

    The Komodo is a 4x4 tactical vehicle developed and produced by Pindad.

    The creation of the Komodo first started on October 26, 2011 when President Yudhoyono personally visited a PT Indonesian Aerospace weapon system exhibition. In the course of developing the vehicle, Pindad looked at other armored tactical vehicles that were being produced and sold such as the Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle, the Nexter Aravis and the Sherpa Light family.

    Production of the Komodo was based at Pindad's factory in Bandung, West Java. The creation of a working Komodo prototype was completed on March 2012.

    The Komodo made its first appearance when Pindad demonstrated the tactical vehicle to visitors at the RITech Expo on September 2012. Production on a working Komodo by Pindad started on October 5, 2012. On November 10, 2012, President Yudhoyono gave the name Komodo to new tactical vehicle at the Indo Defence 2012 Expo & Forum, Jakarta International Expo, Kemayoran, Jakarta.

    A production plan of at least 240 Komodo tactical vehicles was planned after it was unveiled in Indodefence 2012.

    Pindad has been awarded at the BUMN Award 2013 by the Indonesian government for their contribution in making the Komodo, since 80% of its components are being made locally. Pindad has reported confirmation that there are unnamed countries that are very interested to purchase Komodo tactical vehicles. Pindad has said that possible exports can be done for ASEAN member nations.



    Design

    The Komodo was designed with a price tag of USD$2-3 million.

    According to Pindad, the Komodo's monocoque armored body is bulletproof and it can withstand 7.62 bullets. The Komodo's glass is also made bulletproof.

    The Komodo's turbo intercooler diesel engine has a total horsepower of 2500 rpm at 215 ps, allowing the vehicle to achieve the weight ratio of 25hp/ton. The Komodo can carry up to 200 liters of diesel fuel. The vehicle only has a manual transmission system, which consists of 6 forward and 1 reverse gear, allowing the Komodo to have off-road capabilities. Normal cruising range of the Komodo is about 450 kilometers.

    The Komodo's off-road capabilities have been tested in various conditions ranging from mountainous terrain to mud and sand.

    While most parts of the Komodo are made locally in Indonesia such as the frame, body and design, Pindad has publicly stated that they used imported components such as Hino for machinery parts and Michelin for the tires. Its diesel engines were imported from Renault. The Komodo's monocoque steel body was made locally by Krakatau Steel.

    Pindad collaborated with MBDA to create the mobile anti-aircraft SAM variant, which are armed with Mistral SAM missiles. According to the Indonesian military, a total of 56 mobile SAM units are to be made and purchased.

    Pindad also collaborated with Nexter to create Komodos that would serves as mobile command and communications vehicles with a total of 8 units being ordered.
