Midhio said the Indonesian Government expressed its interest to purchase F-16 and C-130H Hercules cargo aircraft to increase the number of squadrons, according to

“The US also promised military aid of $15.7m to Indonesia in 2010 and $20m in 2011 to help modernise the Indonesian Defence as part of a recently signed bilateral defence framework arrangement,” he said.

“Indonesia will use the military aid in the form of training and education to be carried out in both Indonesia and the US.”

Currently, Indonesia operates only four operational jet fighters, less than a single squadron.
