RSAF F-16D Block 52 model

Indonesia government agree in receiving for about 24 F-16 block 52 . Both type are ex-USAF. The agreement was signed by first comission DPR RI on October 25th. DPR members agreed to freely in receiving F-16 Block 15 but insist to upgrade/retrofit all plane to block 52(so equal to Singapore F-16). DPR dealt to hands over the advance money about US$ 200 million next year. The rest will be discuss later in the next year budget meeting.

Why F-16? Indonesia is still need this type of plane because it is single engine and cheaper maintenance cost. Bring up some conformal fuel tank and SNIPER POD installed on the plane which Sukhoi-27/30 didn’t offered same technology. And most of all its free( Ex-USAF before upgrade). But hoping US didn’t give any military embargo in the future to make those plane still fly up in the air watching the Indonesia Air Space.
