IDEF 2017: STM & TKMS Signed LOI on Type 214 Submarines for Indonesian Navy

Additional info on Turkish STM/Golcuk Shipyard and German TKMS team up for Indonesian Navy 2nd batch Submarine contracts. As mentioned on previous post, besides STM-TKMS, French DCNS and South Korean DSME is also serious contender with potential Sweden SAAB.

However the article seems confirm what I heard as rumours before that the 2nd batch's just like 1st batch consist 3 Submarine. Currently the TNI-AL original Type 209 frm the 80's planned to be phased out by 2020+. This seems will be in line with the 2nd batch Subs which if on schedullewill be available on 2020+. This with the firm contract for 2nd batch need to signed this year or next at the latest.

If this on schedulle then by 2024, TNI-AL will have 6 Subs, consist of 3 DSME 209 frm 1st Batch, and 3 Subs frm 2nd Batch. Officially Mindef and TNI-AL talked 12 Subs by 2024, but unless they planned to get Subs frm other supplier that not partner with PAL (thus not build it locally), I don't see how they can get more than 6 Subs. Sourcing Subs without PAL participation will not be politically good move, considering the administration already spend substantial Investment for PAL Submarine facility.
Thus with the next TNI-AL Subs need to build locally and with PAL capacity, they at best by 2024 only can produce 2-3 Subs at max.

So if the planned for 12 Subs still on table, then it's at best can only be achieved by 2030+.
