China, Indonesia Begin Missile Talks

Phase 1 is on semi-knocked down production while Phase 2 is on completely-knocked down production. A proposal for a Phase 3 on research and development is already on the table although the focus is currently on the first two phases. (photo : ifeng) China and Indonesia have started talks on the ambitious local production of C-705 anti-ship missiles as part of Indonesia’s efforts to achieve independence in weapons production. The defense cooperation reflects strengthening ties between both countries amid heightening tension in the South China Sea involving China and a number of Indonesia’s ASEAN neighbors. Defense Ministry chief spokesman Brig. Gen. Hartind Asrin said that the initial talks were conducted during the first China-Indonesia defense industry cooperation meeting held in Jakarta on Wednesday. The ministry’s defense potential director general Pos M. Hutabarat hosted the Chinese delegation which was led by Liu Yunfeng, a deputy director general at the Chinese State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense (SASTIND). “The meeting discussed various efforts to improve cooperation between the defense industries of both countries,” Hartind said on Thursday. “We’ve already prepared an area for the [missile] production site that faces the open sea for trials.” Hartind said the C-705 had a range of 120 kilometers. He said that the Indonesian Navy had successfully test-fired the C-705 missiles in the Sunda Strait. “China has also offered to donate weapons systems that Indonesia might need,” he added. A source said that Indonesia was expected to reply to Phase 1 of the missile proposal at the end of August and Phase 2 one month later. A contract is expected to be signed in 2013. Phase 1 is on semi-knocked down production while Phase 2 is on completely-knocked down production. A proposal for a Phase 3 on research and development is already on the table although the focus is currently on the first two phases. Aside from the missile production, a number of Indonesian Army Special Force Command (Kopassus) members recently conducted the second “Sharp Knife” joint exercise with Chinese Special Forces operatives earlier this month in Jinan, Shandong, China. China has also offered to train 10 pilots from the Indonesian Air Force to train using a Sukhoi simulator in China. Commenting on the defense cooperation, defense expert Andi Widjajanto said the industrial cooperation was solely to gain access to more advanced technology. “However, it will take a long time for us to be independent in the defense industry, perhaps after 2024. This is the reason Indonesia builds partnerships with many countries that possess modern military technologies,” he said. “This is also why we require partner countries to transfer their technologies to us in any agreement we sign with them.” Andi added that there were two goals in terms of the partnership: to access advanced rocket technology, and to collaborate in upholding maritime security, which began when President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono signed an agreement in March during a state visit to Beijing. “I don’t believe it has anything to do with conflicts in the South China Sea,” he stressed. Meanwhile, chairman of the House of Representatives’ Commission I on defense issues, Mahfudz Shiddiq, said such global partnerships in the defense industry were designed to develop Indonesia’s own industry. “We have allocated Rp 150 trillion [US$15.8 billion] to modernize our weapons-defense system from 2010 to 2014. It would be wasteful paying such a huge amount to foreign defense industries without any attempt to improve our own,” he said. “Therefore, we require partner countries to transfer their military technologies in the hope that they will gradually improve our own technologies.” He added that the partnership with China was due to its advanced military technologies in fields such as rocketry. “This is not political, even though others might link the partnership to political issues, for example the South China Sea disputes,” Machfudz said. Indonesia already cooperates on weapons production with several other countries including South Korea to build jet fighters and submarines, the Netherlands to build frigates and Spain to build medium transport aircraft.

Proses Pembelian Tank Leopard Sudah Selesai


Jumat, 27 Juli 2012

[JAKARTA]Kementerian Pertahanan (Kemhan) mengklaim bahwa proses pembelian Main Batle Tank (MBT) Leopard dari Jerman sebanyak 100 unit telah selesai, bahkan pada Oktober 2012 nanti, sebanyak 15 unit tank sudah tiba di Indonesia.

"Pada Oktober 2012, bertepatan HUT TNI, Anda sudah akan melihat 15 unit Tank Leopard," kata Kepala Pusat Komunikasi Publik Kemhan, Brigjen TNI Hartind Asrin menanggapi kekhawatiran DPR akan terganggunya pembelian tank Leopard akibat penolakan sebagian anggota Parlemen Jerman, di Jakarta, Jumat (27/7).

Menurut dia, tank berbobot 60 ton itu akan terus berdatangan dengan total 100 unit hingga 2014 mendatang. Penolakan sebagian anggota parlemen, terutama dari partai oposisi, tidak mengganggu proses pembelian tank tersebut.

"Penolakan itu memang ada, namun hanya dalam diskusi kecil. Tapi, tidak membuat pembelian tank menjadi batal," jelas Hartind.

Sebanyak 15 tank yang akan di tahap pertama rencananya akan ditempatkan di wilayah Jawa. Namun, tak menutup kemungkinan tank yang datang kemudian akan dikirim ke daerah-daerah perbatasan.

"Kita sedang mempersiapkan kapal untuk mengangkutnya jika memang akan ditempatkan di sana," ujarnya.

Beberapa waktu lalu, laman "Spiegel Online" konsisten memberitakan bahwa anggota parlemen senior dari Partai Hijau Katja Keul menyatakan, Jerman tidak bisa menjual tank Leopard pada Indonesia mengingat masih banyaknya pelanggaran HAM yang terjadi.

Wakil Ketua Komisi I DPR RI Tubagus Hasanuddin juga pernah mengatakan penolakan parlemen Jerman itu harus disikapi hati-hati oleh pemerintah Indonesia maupun Jerman.

"Saat ini DPR dalam posisi menunggu sikap pemerintah kedua negara," katanya.

Kekuatan Persenjataan Indonesia Turun ke Peringkat 18


Kekuatan Persenjataan Indonesia Turun ke Peringkat 18














TRIBUNNEWS.COM, JAKARTA - Saat ini, posisi kekuatan angkatan bersenjata atau kekuatan militer Indonesia berada di posisi 18 di dunia.
Menurut Kepala Pusat Komunikasi Publik Kementerian Pertahanan, Brigjen TNI Hartind Asrin peringkat ini mengalami penurunan.
"Sebelumnya di peringkat 16. Ini turun karena ada alutsista yang tidak efektif," ujar Brigjen TNI Hartind kepada wartawan usai acara Silaturahmi Kapuskom Publik TNI dengan Wartawan di Kementerian Pertahanan (Kemenhan), Jakarta Pusat, Kamis (26/7/2012).
Menurut Brigjen TNI Hartind, yang menentukan naik-turunnya peringkat kekuatan militer suatu negara dilihat dari teknologi alat utama sistem persenjataan (alutsista) yang dimiliki negara tersebut.
Dengan adanya penurunan tersebut, maka menurut Brigjen TNI Hartind, perlu adanya penambahan teknologi alutsista dan memodernisasi teknologi alutsista yang telah lama. Penambahan tersebut salah satunya memperkuat alutsista di tubuh Angkatan Darat (AD).
"Alutsista bergerak itu memang menjadi prioritas. kalau di Angkatan Darat itu mulai dari MBT (Main Battle Tank) Leopard," ujar Brigjen TNI Hartind.
Dengan pembelian MBT dari Jerman ini, Brigjen TNI Hartind berharap dapat meningkatkan kekuatan TNI AD dalam menjaga persatuan dan kesatuan Republik Indonesia. Sebab, semakin kuatnya alutsista, maka semakin kuat pula deteren power atau kekuatan penangkal suatu negara.
"Nah kenapa malah sekarang banyak yang mempersoalkan MBT Leopard itu? Padahal ini bisa membuat deteren power yang membuat lawan urungkan niatnya," ujar Brigjen TNI Hartind.
Selain Pembelian MBT Leopard asal Jerman, Brigjen TNI Hartind juga mengungkapkan saat ini pihaknya tengah menguatkan kendaraan taktis seperti Anoa yang kini jumlahnya mencapai 165 unit. Ke depannya, Kemenhan akan terus memperkuat sampai dua brigade.
Penguatan teknologi alutsista tersebut tidak hanya di tubuh TNI AD saja, namun juga di TNI AL dan TNI AU. Menurut Brigjen TNI Hartind, penguatan teknologi alutsista harus dilakukan secara seimbang.
