CMI's main responsibility is developing the turret with 90mm cannon. CMI and its Cockerill brand is a well-known turret producer in the world. Both companies will start mass production stage next year. Pindad CEO and his partners are very confident they will have the chance to conduct a series of tests including a live firing test of the 90mm cannon at Indonesian Armed Forces facility.

The joint project (initially called "Pindad - Cockerill 90P") will allow both parties to maximize their best potentials. "Pindad is striving its best to enter a global supply chain in the defence industry through its partnership with CMI", Pindad CEO said. The turret, Cockerill CSE 90LP, is proven to be a highly accurate and effective weapon. The Cockerill CSE 90LP could support users in counter-insurgency mission.

It is important to note that the BADAK would fit into the Indonesian Armed Forces requirement to fulfill its arsenal system as stipulated in a "Minimum Essential Forces" (MEF) strategy. Both companies asserted their main agenda apart from MEF completion would also pave the way for Pindad and its team to introduce their product for global market. "CMI will support and enhance Pindad's capacity and expertise in defence industry, we will also rely on CMI's global marketing network to get better opportunities for our product to be known and sold around the globe" James Caudle of CMI added.
