    Tempointeraktif.com - Indonesia Buys Chinese Missile for Warships

    The Indonesian Navy (TNI AL) will use C-705 missiles from China in its locally-made fast missile boats (KCR). According to plan, 16 KCR-40 warships manufactured in Batam by PT Palindo Marine will be equipped with the missiles.

    "The contract had been signed, the missiles are expected to arrive in 2014," First Admiral Untung Suropati, Chief of Information Center for TNI AL, told Tempo on Monday, January 28.

    The C-705 has been developed from the C-701 family by the China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) apparently as a cost efficient solution filling the gap which exists in Chinese surface-to-surface missile systems between the C-704 and the C-802. It was first displayed at the 2008 Zuhai Air Show. Externally it looks like a smaller version of the C-602. It is believed to have a terminal flight altitude of between 5 and 7 m and a 110 kg warhead and appears to be designed for use against vessels in excess of 1,500 tons by small patrol vessels in the 50 to 500 ton range. Indeed, it has been linked with the Houbei (Type 022) class of Fast Attack Craft (FAC). There would seem to be export opportunities in the middle east and Latin America for use in the littorals. A land-launched coastal defence version of the air-launched C-704 is currently being marketed with four single launchers carried on a 4 × 4 vehicle. An air-launched version (C-705D) also exists.

    Indonesia speeds up military modernization|Asia-Pacific|chinadaily.com.cn
    JAKARTA - Indonesian Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro said on Wednesday that government planned to cut short the period set to develop the country's military.

    "We will cut short the military empowerment period from three to two strategic plan (Renstra) periods. We have enough funds to finance the efforts to develop our military... Hopefully it can be settled in 2019 instead of 2024 we set earlier," Purnomo told a press conference in his office here.


    In the first renstra period ending in 2015, Indonesian government has allocated 150 trillion rupiah ($16.7 billion) to finance military equipment aimed at empowering the might of its air, army and navy forces.

    Many kinds of modern armaments that Indonesia ordered from several producers had been delivered into the country. Among others Sukhoi Su 30 fighter jets, KT 1 Wongbee trainer/light attack planes from South Korea, Tucano anti-insurgency planes from Brazil and Leopard main battle tanks from Germany.For the navy, Indonesia also purchased several new warships and submarines. It set up cooperation with South Korean producers in procuring submarines under transfer of technology scheme.

    Indonesia is now expecting the delivery of remaining order on Sukhoi fighter jets from Russia and 24 F-16 C/D fighter jets from the US to reinforce its fleet this year. The largest country in Southeast Asia region had also allocated funds to procure AH 64 Apache helicopters for its army.
