Well like it or not, some of those rumours and speculation under present administration can turn out to be gold. In sense they're seems intentionally put rumours around. It's fun to see how the rumours run wilds.better not to spend too much time in all those speculations. Even after the visits to Austria and the US, there is a big chance that absolutely nothing will happen.
It's nice to see you still optimistic for Indonesia involvement on the project that being seen by this administration as SBY project and not their own. Hope you don't get depressed if the involvement in the project being thrown away due to no political support and enthusiasm from this administration.As I recommend many times here, better we focus new fighter acquisition from KFX/IFX project (if the renegotiation and program is successful)
Prabowo’s fake declared interest in an advanced American fighter (aka F-35 interest) with regard to his US trip. “On Jakarta’s wish-list is a ‘roadmap’ to procuring the F-35 fighter jet, an Indonesian government official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity, adding officials were not optimistic.”According to Alman Helvas...
The preliminary contract for J's (5-6) already signed in the last days of Prabowo's predecessor. It's more likely one of the agenda he's doing is finishing that process.opinion we can only expect some 2nd hand F-16s, a dozen second hand C-130Hs or a small amount of C-130Js (2-3) before 2024 in best case scenario.
Network Integration is what TNI aiming, thus asside Political standing of Local Industry involvement, the need for network Integration is shown strong support within TNI current leadership.The TNI AU is not even on track to be a tertiary air force; what is the point of talking about a F-35 purchase without the basics
I can not believe that the majority of these senseless rumours and wild speculations are all intentionally spread by the government.Well like it or not, some of those rumours and speculation under present administration can turn out to be gold.

Yes, lets wait and see until after the visits to the European countries and the American elections.So far nothing substantial coming from Prabowo's Pentagon visit, yet. Their joint communique seems very neutral. Perhaps his visit to French will give more substantial result. Not that I say nothing will come from US visit, but let's be honest if Bidden wins different US attitude to Indonesia can happen.
After all those US Senators and Congressman/woman that still 'beligerrance' toward Indonesia in the cloth of 'human rights' come from Democrats.
Guess they will wait the results of Election. I might be wrong, but I see historically Indonesian Officials are always more 'watchfull' with Democrats White House compared to Republican ones.
Well, let's see what happen when there's talk frm Austria on the matter of interest on their Eurofighter. There's quite outrage from several political factions in the Parliament and even media that can be considered already have Political agenda. Then there's denial from MinDef, then talk it's only one of potential, then the talk begin to subsided.can not believe that the majority of these senseless rumours and wild speculations are all intentionally spread by the government.
What we need to see is the long term projects commitment. They have to provided venue on multi years projects. KFX being reviewed was simply because it's seen as SBY's project and not Jokowi's project. What we got in the project is already in line with 20% involvement shares. This talk Renegotiation of wanting more than 20% work share, as I was said long ago, was nothing then this administration try to find way out from SBY's project. God forbid in this administration thinking to give credit on project that see as their predecessor ones and not theirs.If we step out of the program, then it means that we can/ have to choose between several alternatives: buying from different countries (new and/or second hand) and licence manufacturing
