Yes, at last there is some progress... A MOU has been signed for a barter deal.
RI tukar kopi dan CPO untuk 11 Sukhoi Rusia
It looks like we will export coffee,tea, crude palm oil and some other products while buying the Sukhois...
I just wonder for how much procent of the Sukhoi-contract value will be exported.

It appears that customers have been found for the 12 Su-30KIs sitting in Belarus. 12 are going to Angola, and 6 more to Sri Lanka.


Also another 12 Su-30SM are going to Kazakhstan.Currently there are plans to halt production of the type post 2020 but I'm not so sure. Russia has clients around the world that continue to buy upgraded Flankers.


EDIT: CAST confirms the deal is being negotiated, and seems to be close to a signing.

Personally I think this is a questionable choice. They need something simpler but I strongly suspect political pressure from Russia, as well as the generous credit line, and influence from India, have a lot to do with this choice.
