Russia signs contract to sell warplanes to Indonesia

MOSCOW -- Russia's arms exporter Rosoboronexport signed a contract to supply six multipurpose warplanes to Indonesia at the 8th international air show MAKS-2007, which opened on Tuesday near Moscow, Russian news agencies reported.

The contract includes three Su-27SKM and three Su-27MK-2 jets.

Three years ago, the Russian arms exporter sold to Indonesia four multi-functional jets -- two Su-27SK and two Su-30MK.

The Indonesian Air Force is still to acquire two more jets to have a full squadron of this type of planes.

Earlier, Indonesia declared the intention to purchase from Russia 18 to 24 Sukhoi jet fighters.

    "Look the japs did it with a few
    Kamakazi"

    back in 1941, we are a little more prepared today. That was a very bad analogy, but your rigt it is not impossible just very near impossible, at least as far as sinking one goes. Might get in a little damage i More..

  • There are more fighter aircraft on one US Aircraft Carrier than the entire country of Indonesia's Airforce.

    There is no substitute for highly trained pilots with combat experience of which we are currently not in short supply.

    Not worried at all.

  • The USS Cole bombing was a suicide bombing attack against the U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG 67) on October 12, 2000 while it was harbored in the Yemeni port of Aden.


    That one?? it was not performing combat operations at the time, and was far from being sunk. Totally different story when a ship is in a combat zone running operations.

    more on that.

    Now your really reaching, grabbing for straws trying to prove your point.

    These ships are built for war they can take a great amount of damage and still be combat ready not just stay afloat. That is not to say More..

    Hardly. The Su30MKK's are very capeable aircraft.

    Ummm...why would you even bother to say you're "not worried"? Do you believe that every country is making arms purchases to be prepared for a conflict with the US? You guys are ridiculous.

  • mass attack from where?? battle groups operate about 50 miles off shore so not like we wont see it coming. but there is always very slim chance if they fired every missle they had but that a one shot deal and currently there are 3 carriers in the gulf so that makes it even harder to get through.

    Wrong. Only TWO Su37 prototypes were ever built, and only ONE Su-47 prototype was built. No such thing as an Su45. These comments are a battle of who can be more fucking ignorant.

  • So they're purchasing jets that are the equivalent of 1982 Datsuns to pretty much the rest of the world. So what?
