Rheinmetall at Indo Defence 2016 in Jakarta (Indonesia)

With a population of some 240 million, Indonesia is one of the world’s largest democracies. As a member of ASEAN and the G20 group of major economies, the country plays an increasingly important role as a regional power and source of stability in Southeast Asia. This is why Indonesia is currently modernizing its armed forces. The presence of Düsseldorf, Germany-based Rheinmetall – already a significant supplier of land systems to the Indonesian armed forces – at the Indo Defence Expo & Forum from 2-5 November 2016 in Jakarta underscores once again the Group’s commitment to the Republic of Indonesia.

Rheinmetall showcases 105mm Medium Battle Tank at Indo Defence 2016

A force multiplier for military operations and the protection of critical infrastructure

Rheinmetall airburst technology: superior firepower from small arms to main battle tanks

Wheeled and tracked armoured vehicles form a longstanding core competency of the Rheinmetall Group, whose comprehensive expertise here ranges from the development of new vehicles – like the new Lynx family unveiled at Eurosatory 2016 – to modernization and combat improvement programmes. At Indo Defence 2016, Rheinmetall is showcasing a demonstrator of a 105mm medium battle tank. The vehicle is based on the combat-proven Marder 1 chassis already fielded by the Indonesian Army, equipped with a modern Hitfact II turret from Oto Melara (now Leonardo). Moreover, Rheinmetall is currently carrying out a combat performance upgrade of the Leopard 2 A4 main battle tank on behalf of the Indonesian armed forces. Depending on which of the two different versions of the tank – the Leopard 2A4+ or Leopard 2 RI (Republic of Indonesia) – the modernization programme includes a climate control system (2A4+ and RI), improved ballistic protection, conversion from a hydraulic to an electric turret drive, an auxiliary power unit, and installation of a reversing camera (RI). In addition, Rheinmetall is also enhancing the 120mm smoothbore gun in the RI configuration with a programming kit that will enable it to fire Rheinmetall’s new programmable DM11 multipurpose round.

Another focal point is Rheinmetall’s role as the world’s foremost maker of cannon-based air defence systems. On show in Jakarta is the new network-capable Rheinmetall Oerlikon Revolver Gun Mk 2, which features Ahead technology and with programmable airburst ammunition. The Group is also presenting its battle management system and X-TAR3D radar.
