Rosoboronexport plans to discuss all outstanding issues of military technical cooperation with both Indonesian and other regional partners.

"Indonesia is one of Russia's major partners in the region, and it is only natural that we expect progress in many areas of our military technical cooperation with this country, following our talks in Jakarta. We offer our Indonesian partners various projects. It can be licence assembly, joint item development, or assistance in refining products developed by Indonesia. This also involves technologies transfers, which is now especially important for Indonesia striving to develop its own defence industry", - said Viktor Komardin, deputy director general of Rosoboronexport and head of the delegation to the exhibition.

The BMP-3F ICVs have earned an excellent reputation with the Indonesian armed forces. Other countries in the region are showing interest in armoured vehicles from the BMP-3 family. Russian armoured materiel in general, and the T-90S main battle tank (MBT) with its latest upgraded version in particular, show good sales prospects in this region’s market.

The BMP-3F is an amphibious armoured infantry vehicle based on the Russian-made BMP-3 IFV and intended to increase fire power, mobility and protection of marines troops.

In May 2012, Indonesia has announced the signature of a contract for the purchase of 37 amphibious armoured infantry fighting vehicles BMP-3F Series 2 from Russia. The Indonesian Defense Forces (TNI) has used BMP-3F tanks since 2010 totaling 17 units, operated by the Marine Corps.
