Looks very sophisticated and well equipped. What vehicle is this https://world-defense.com/threads/indonesian-armed-forces.3458/post-37809

Any training beyond the borders?
Oowh by the way. which vehicles are you refering to?
Sorry mates that links you provides does not help.
I've been posting too many pics I guess.

But it's alright, I can describes every vehicle (or aicraft) in that post for you.

1. F-16 C's
2. Leopard 2 RI MBT's (Revolution Standard)
3. Honda Beat/Vario Scooter (Lol.. I think this is soldiers personal vehicles)
4. AH-64 'Echo' variant Apaches
5. United Nations Mitshubishi Triton 4x4
6. Pindad Anoa 6x6 APC's (derived from France VAB 4x4 APC's, but we licensed and build to suit our needs)
7. Kawasaki D-Tracker 250

Hope this helps.

For this year? There was not much military activities around our borders. I think it depends on geopolitical situation of our region. As long as no one creates tensions, we're all fine.

Our message in natuna is clear, and relationships with neighbors (including China) are at peak and stable conditions today. We responded very well. Our sovereignty around our borders is valid and they acknowledge it.

Although not directly related to the borders, we did some of our combined training this year with USAF (Cope West 2018), US Army (Garuda Shield 2018) and now our Navy is in Hawaii to join RIMPAC 2018 as I write this.

After successfully achieving the STANAG 4569 Mine Level 5 explosive test on PT. Pindad's 'Black Tiger' medium tank, Indonesia's combined production with Turkish FNSS will conduct a mobility test before starting it's production line in 2019. Firing and combat maneuvering will undergo in a week shortly after.

The Indonesian company PT Pindad jointly with the Turkish company FNSS conducted firing test of the prototype of the medium tank. The vehicle is integrated with CMI Cockerill’s 3105 turret with autoloader, which is capable of firing all kinds of 105 mm NATO ammunition and the Falarick Anti-tank Missile with its high pressure 105 mm tank gun.

Good questions..
I dont think so. I think it is supplied by FNSS or Germany because it uses MTU diesel engine. AFAIK Pindad's does not yet to have a proper engine production plant for mass produce. Need the right third parties and higher investment budget for that. Maybe in the future when the Indonesian Army order reach 400+ units then with logic it's better to build the engine at home rather than imports for a lower production cost. Officially only licenses build CMI turret's and chassis include chain and armor we locally produced. Some sensors and electronics were also imported, but we made our own Battle Management System (BMS) for Interoperability and more secured datalink.

The main objectives for this project are achieved namely 'technology transfer' or 'know how' and at the same time to modernize and replace our old's AMX-13 light tanks that are somewhere around 400+ in the Army inventory.

Turkey is relying on Germany for engines. I don't think Turkey is able to develop one locally though. Nevertheless FNSS do provide high quality hardwares.

Well, that's what I thought. The German engineering is rooted in almost all Turkish defense company products. From submarines to attack helicopters. But even if it's originally made / assemble by FNSS, it doesn't rule out the possibility of using German technology in it. However there's still no valid info on who's and where's that engines are build of. That kind of information's are still classified in prototype stages.

Indonesia has purchased an unknown quantity of the Georgian Didgori Medevac
According to Georgian newspapers, Indonesia recently ordered several Didgori Armored Medical Evacuation Vehicles (AMEVs) from Georgia’s Delta State Military Scientific-Technical Centre (STC Delta).
The General Director of the STC Delta has recently reported that a contract has been signed and a payment has been made between Indonesia and Georgia for the purchase of these AMEVs. For the moment, details have not been communicated. The Delta State Military Scientific-Technical Centre is the Georgian production center for military and civilian hardware.


The Didgori armored medical evacuation vehicle is a variant of the 4x4 Didgori light armored vehicle (LAV), unveiled in 2011. The vehicle is conceived to evacuate and transport wounded soldiers and provide basic medical assistance. It features a 4x4 wheeled Ford F550 super heavy-duty truck chassis and has a length of 6.55m, a width of 2.39m, a wheel base of 3.57m and a ground clearance of 0.5m. The vehicle is driven by a 6.7-litre turbocharged diesel developing 300hp coupled with an automatic transmission with six forward and one reverse gear, enabling the vehicle to achieve a stated maximum road speed of up to 120 km/h.


The rear medical cabin can welcome one nurse and four wounded soldiers and is provided with six bullet-resistant glass vision frames. The Didgori AMEV is equipped with intercom and walkie-talkie system, heating and air conditioning systems.


The vehicle also offers all-round ballistic protection, featuring the EN1063 B7+ armor level. It includes protection from 7.62 calibre armor-piercing bullet rounds and artillery shell fragments fired from short distances, but also protection against kinetic and mine blast threats.

Indonesia signs LOI with PT Pindad for Kaplan medium tanks
Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore and Samuel Cranny-Evans, London - Jane's Defence Weekly
19 April 2019

Indonesia has reaffirmed its interest in acquiring the Kaplan MT Modern Medium Weight Tank (MMWT) developed by Turkish company FNSS Savunma Sistemleri and Indonesian land systems company PT Pindad.
The Indonesian MoD signed an LOI with PT Pindad on 12 April reaffirming its interest in acquiring Kaplan MT tanks (similar to this one). (FNSS)


The Indonesian MoD signed an LOI with PT Pindad on 12 April reaffirming its interest in acquiring Kaplan MT tanks (similar to this one). (FNSS)
On 12 April the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Jakarta signed a letter of intent (LOI) with PT Pindad for the procurement of up to 20 Kaplan MTs – known locally as the Harimau – for USD135 million, an MoD source told Jane’s on 18 April.

A contract is expected to be signed within one or two years once funding for the acquisition becomes available, said the source, pointing out that funding will come from the defence budget, a foreign defence credit, or a mixture of both.
