Taken from credible source (Alman Helvast). Indonesia will start making significant payment for the development of join project KF21/IFX program next year inshaAllah. I expect it will be around 500-700 million USD. The increase of payment is large compared to Indonesia's payment in 2023 at 30 million USD and 2022 payment at around 9 million USD.

The payment is part of the cost share where Indonesia has to contribute 20 % of development cost while the rest are financed by Korean.

AIRSPACE REVIEW (airspace-review.com) – A total of 12 Mirage 2000-5 fighter jets from Qatar will soon be delivered to Indonesia. The delivery is part of the sale of Dassault's delta-wing aircraft after obtaining approval from France.

The planes will be delivered by Defense Conseil International (DCI), a private French-owned company based in Qatar, using Antonov An-124 cargo planes.

Israel Defense portal reported that the deal between Qatar and Indonesia was drafted by E-Systems Solutions, a Dubai-based company.

Financing for the purchase of Mirage 2000-5 fighter jets was carried out by a Czech company called Excalibur International, a subsidiary of the Czechoslovak Group (CSG) arms.

Prabowo said the 12 Mirage can be used for another 15-20 years. This aircraft will be good for development of Indonesian Avionics Industry like Info Global. Like what happen with F5 Tiger, Hawk 100/200, InfoGlobal provides avionics system during the upgrade program of those old planes.

The acquisition price of 12 Mirage 2000 has included spare parts, spare engines, equipment, sustainment, and weapons.

First phase KF21/IFX acquisition is for 24 planes, but I believe it needs more time as the program hasnt been completed and Indonesian Aerospace needs to add more investment on its IFX production Hangar.

It has been learned that the government is considering exporting used engines of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force's F-15 fighter jets to Indonesia. We will coordinate with the ruling parties to add the provision of parts to the operational guidelines of the Three Principles on Transfer of Defense Equipment and Equipment. It is envisioned to be installed on Indonesian F16 fighter jets.

Multiple government officials revealed.

About 100 F-15s that are difficult to modernize are expected to be wasted in the future. The guidelines limit exports to five types: rescue, transportation, vigilance, surveillance, and minesweeping, and parts are currently not eligible.

However, the export of parts is also permitted in the case of international joint development, and there have been cases of exporting to the United States in the past.
