Indonesia and Russia are continuing to negotiate the terms of the Indonesian Air Force's (TNI-AU's) procurement of Sukhoi Su-35 'Flanker-E' multirole combat aircraft, Indonesian defence minister Ryamizard Ryacudu has confirmed.

Details about the localised production programme have not been revealed but are unlikely to feature the manufacture or assembly of the whole aircraft unless Indonesia commits to a purchase of a significant number of aircraft. Localised component manufacturing and support are the most likely first phases of collaboration.

In 2015 Ryacudu said the Indonesian Ministry of Defence had selected the Su-35 to replace the TNI-AU's Northrop F-5E Tiger II fighters, which entered TNI-AU service in 1980 and are expected to be withdrawn from service by the end of the decade.

The Indonesian Ministry of Defence (MoD) is considering bartering rubber as part of an offset programme that will support its proposed acquisition of Sukhoi Su-35 'Flanker-E' multirole combat aircraft from Russia.

Indonesian trade minister Enggartiasto Lukita told reporters in Jakarta on 18 May that the rubber deal was one element of a range of offset activities that were being evaluated by government agencies including his ministry and the country’s attorney general’s office.

According to previous reports, the planned contract envisages the sale of 10 Su-35 jets to Indonesia.

A wide range of Russian weaponry and military equipment are in service with Indonesia’s armed forces, including Su-27 and Su-30 fighter jets. The country plans to purchase Su-35 aircraft to replace its outdated fleet of US-made F-5 Tiger aircraft that have been in service since 1980s.

Confirmed: Indonesia to Buy 11 Su-35 Fighter Jets From Russia | The Diplomat - July 31, 2017
Quote
Following two years of protracted negotiations, Indonesian Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu confirmed on July 26 that Indonesia will procure 11 Russian-made Su-35S ‘Flanker-E’ multirole fighter jets for the Indonesia Air Force (TNI-AU) with the first aircraft slated for delivery in 2018.

“There will be 11 planes. After two years, it was finally finalized,” the minister told reporters last week. The defense minister’s Su-35 statement follows the Indonesian Air Force’s recent announcement of the beginning of the second phase of its 2014-2019 upgrade plan.

It remains unclear whether a Su-35 contract has already been signed by Moscow and Jakarta. The minister’s announcement was preceded by media reports that Indonesia and Russia have finally agreed to an offset obligation program including technology transfers in early July.

Indonesia to barter palm oil, coffee for Russian fighter jets | Manila Times - August 8, 2017

Indonesia and Russia signed a memorandum of understanding to exchange 11 Russian-made Sukhoi fighters for key commodities in Moscow last week, a spokesman for Indonesia’s trade ministry said.

“The idea was proposed last year and some people suggested Indonesia should trade the jets with our main commodities,” spokesman Marolop Nainggolan told Agence France-Presse.

Indonesia, Russia Ink Defense Protocol Amid Fighter Jet Deal | The Diplomat - October 17, 2017

https://thediplomat.com/2017/10/indonesia-russia-ink-defense-protocol-amid-fighter-jet-deal/

Quote
The military-technical agreement comes as both countries continue to make progress toward the inking of a long-mulled Indonesian purchase of Sukhoi Su-35 multirole combat aircraft. As I have noted repeatedly, the deal has faced repeated delays since Indonesian defense minister Ryamizard Ryacudu first announced Indonesia had decided to buy the aircraft in September 2015, including over procurement regulations (See: “Why is the Indonesia-Russia Fighter Jet Deal Still On Hold?”).

As of now, though Indonesia is not expected to build the aircraft or parts of it by itself, both sides have been working out the structure of the deal to include MRO, countertrade, and offset opportunities, including Indonesian export of commodities and defense products. Though specifics are still being negotiated, Indonesian officials have previously said that, within the $1.14 billion expected deal for 11 Sukhoi jets, around $570 million will be paid for in Indonesian commodity exports such as palm oil, tea, and coffee, with around $400 million sourced through an offset program, and the remaining paid for through cash.
