Pandur, Alutsista Terbaru TNI - ARCINC

From local website arcinc..showing first batch of Pandur II 8x8 from czech Excalibur Army, arived in Pindad facility. Pindad being involved on weapons and system installation. Rumours TNI-AD will used IFV version with 30mm gun, and 105mm Gun version.

Altough the article says that Pandur will equiped Mechanised Infantry batalions, but some talk circulated that the Pandur 8x8 will equiped cavalry batalions instead. Thus left mechanised infantry being equiped by Pindad's own Anoa and M113.

Thank you for sharing, Ananda!
I haven't seen any news earlier about this $39 million acquisition, so this is actually the first big defence project from this administration, right?

The variants delivered to the Czech Army have a lot of Israeli Raphael content, I wonder about the versions for TNI-AD. The ordered numbers are still unknown, isn't it?

As far as that I can recall, this is the first big item procuement that originally envisaged by this administrations that come to fruition.

All other procurement items including M109, originally dealed under previous administrations.

There's talk in local forum and media, the Indonesian Pandur will used 30mm that originated frm Brazil (eventough build under license from Raphael).. the 105 mm gun will used cockerill gun..

The good thing that I noticed - following the acquisition of all the new hardware - it seems like there are way more frequent live fire exercise at higher-than-battalion level. It's quite common nowadays to see and read about exercises involving the new Leos, BMP3 (Marines), and CAESARs. It seems like the Army (and the Marines) are willing to spend on a lot of rockets. Whether those live rounds are cheap (or not), it's a good thing to see those types of exercise.

Now if only they start expanding them to more precision munitions live fire. I have not read about Ataka or Javelin live test. I hope the current precision ordnance do not suffer the same fate as the Rapiers - only sitting inside the depo until retirement.
