Leopard 2RI (c) ARC


The «Leopard RI» main battle tanks arrived in Indonesia from Germany.

The «Leopard RI» is a modular upgrade package to the Leopard 2A4 main battle tanks for Indonesia. Tanks are internally named Leopard 2RI (RI referring to “Republic of Indonesia”).

The tanks are part of a USD280 million contract encompassing the Leopard 2 RIs, 42 Leopard 2+ MBTs, 42 upgraded Marder 1A3 infantry fighting vehicles, and 11 armoured recovery and engineering vehicles from surplus German Army stocks.
