Indonesian Ministry of Defense confirmed that it is interested in purchasing the latest Russian Su-35 fighters, RIA Novosti reports with reference to Rosoboronexport Deputy CEO, Sergey Goreslavski.
He took part in the work of Russian delegation at LIMA-2015 exhibition held in March at Langkawi Island (Malaysia).
“Indonesian air forces showed interest in Su-35. The country’s Minister of Defense confirmed it once again,” Goreslavski said.
According to him, Indonesia is also interested in Russian helicopters, Be-200 amphibious aircraft and conventional submarines (project 636).
In February 2015 ANTARA agency with reference to Commander-in-Chief of the Indonesian air forces Vice-Marshal Agus Supriatna reported that the air forces are going to replace outdated F-5 fighters (delivered from USA) with state-of-the-art “4++”-generation Su-35 fighters.
