Rosoboronexport plans to discuss all outstanding issues of military technical cooperation with both Indonesian and other regional partners. Rosoboronexport is presenting more than 200 items of Russian armaments and military equipment at 5th International INDO DEFENCE 2012 Expo & Forum will be held from 7 to 10 November 2012 at Jakarta, Indonesia.
“Indonesia is one of Russia’s major partners in the region, and it is only natural that we expect progress in many areas of our military technical cooperation with this country, following our talks in Jakarta. We offer our Indonesian partners various projects. It can be licence assembly, joint item development, or assistance in refining products developed by Indonesia. This also involves technologies transfers, which is now especially important for Indonesia striving to develop its own defence industry”, – said Viktor Komardin, deputy director general of Rosoboronexport and head of the delegation to the exhibition.
Rosoboronexport expect that Russian air defence systems, such as the Buk-M2E missile system, Pantsir-S1 gun/missile system, and Igla-S man-portable air defence missile system, will draw special attention this year.
Rosoboronexport proposes to Indonesia a concept of integrated air defence system based on the Buk-M2E medium-range air defence missile systems and Pantsir-S1 short-range air defence gun/missile systems. Russian experts believe that the system in such configuration will be able to effectively protect country’s vital military and administrative installations from all existing air attack weapons of potential enemy, including from massive air strikes.
