They should add a radome for every radar site IMHO, I don't know why this practice isn't common in here

-2 of 3 Rafale squadron will be in RSN AFB (SQN 12 and 16)
-F-16s from Sqn 16 moved back to Java (Iswahyudi?) but with a new squadron number
- remaining Hawk merged in Supadio but it will not be SQN 1 "Elang Khatulistiwa", so new SQN number
-SQN 1 "Elang Khatulistiwa" will host Rafale

even if they didn't move forward with F-15 I'm fine. Budget allocated for F-15 could be diverted for additional Rafale tho
Going for more Rafale instead of F-15 may actually be better. It is much more cost effective to order more of the same type of fighter. You get economies of scale and easier logistics. This is the reason the French designed the Rafale as a multirole fighter to meet all their needs from air superiority and nuclear delivery to even carrier operations.

We still need heavy Interceptor like Sukhoi

F-15IDN pros :

-World leading American AESA tech (which is in a league of its own)
-brute power
-range

Rafale pros:

-Streamlining of logistics
-access to Meteor


Actually I want TNI AU to go forward with the 24 F-15IDN and stop there while grow the Rafale fleet to a minimum of at least 72 airframes (a lot more is better of course).
