    Beijing has demanded extra money from Indonesia after finding the country actively trying to export its own version of Chinese C-705 anti-ship missiles, reports our Chinese-language sister paper Want Daily.

    At a meeting in Beijing between senior Chinese and Indonesian military officials held by general Fang Fenghui, chief of the General Staff of the People's Liberation Army, and General Moeldoko, commander of the Indonesian Armed Forces, the two sides discussed a wide range of issues including strengthening maritime cooperation, anti-terrorism exercises, defense procurement and associated industrial collaboration, according to the London-based Jane's Defence Weekly.

    Indonesia purchased about 40 C-705 anti-ship missiles from China, said Silmy Karim, assistant for cooperation on the Indonesian Defense Industrial Policy Committee. The Indonesian navy planned to equip its KCR-40 fast missile boats with the missiles designed and produced by the Beijing-based China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation. In addition, Indonesia is also hoping to produce its own version of the C-705 for the overseas market, he added.

    China has refused to turn over C-705 technology entirely to Indonesia because there are still many countries looking to purchase advanced weapons from China, Karim said. Beijing has instead asked for an extra fee from Jakarta to secure rights to produce the missile.

    Indonesia has already gained permission from China to produce C-805 anti-ship missiles for its PB-57 patrol boats. It is also allowed to export the C-805.

    Ridzwan Rahmat, Singapore - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

    Key Points
    • Indonesia is preparing to induct a Chinese-made integrated air-defence system with its marine corps
    • Induction comes at a time when ties between the two countries are being increasingly tested over Beijing's stance in the South China Sea
    The Indonesian Marine Corps (Korps Marinir, or KORMAR) has conducted the first test firings of a newly acquired air-defence system from China North Industries (NORINCO), a source close to the service confirmed with IHS Jane's on 15 August.

    The tests, in which unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were deployed as targets, were conducted at the Batu Bintang beach in the Sukabumi regency of West Java on 12 August. Present during the tests were technicians from NORINCO to train KORMAR personnel in the handling of the system.

    The set-up deployed comprises four units of the Type 90 twin 35 mm towed anti-aircraft gun system, one AF902 mobile air-defence fire-control radar system, and four mobile power supply units. The components, delivered by NORINCO in July 2016, were tested in automatic target acquisition and detection modes.

    "The firings were conducted to demonstrate the capability of this anti-aircraft system that will be inducted with KORMAR's Second Air Defence Artillery Battalion", said the service's public affairs office in Sukabumi, in its statement on the tests.

    Indonesia acquires Chinese-developed CIWS for another Kapitan Pattimura-class corvette

    Key Points
    • Indonesia has selected the Type 730 close-in weapon system for a second Kapitan Pattimura corvette
    • Selection is in line with a wider adoption of Chinese-made weapon systems within the Indonesian Armed Forces
    The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Laut, or TNI-AL) has signed a contract for a single Type 730 close-in weapon system (CIWS) from China North Industries (NORINCO), sources at the TNI-AL's headquarters in Cilangkap, Jakarta, confirmed with IHS Jane's on 23 August.

    The system will be installed onboard the service's Kapitan Pattimura (Parchim I)-class corvette, KRI Silas Papare (386), and replace the ship's 30 mm gun located in the forward section.

    Upon successful installation, Silas Papare will be the second known ship in the class to operate the Chinese-developed CIWS. Sister ship KRI Sultan Thaha Syaifuddin (376) conducted successful test firings of the system with live rounds against radar-reflective seaborne and tethered airborne naval gunnery targets in August 2015.

    The Type 730 CIWS is a radar-guided seven-barrelled Gatling gun-style system that provides a defensive capability against incoming precision guided munitions and aircraft. Variants of the weapon are in service with a number of People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) vessels such as the Type 051C Luzhou-class and Type 052B Luyang I-class destroyers.

    The Type 730 CIWS has also been selected for the TNI-AL's first two of three KCR-60M-class missile attack craft.

    Indonesian state-owned shipbuilder PT PAL will work with NORINCO in Surabaya to install the system onboard Silas Papare in 2017.
