I support their ambitions but aren't they too brave to suddenly make 5th gen fighter?
Why not go for basic trainer (propeller) or advanced trainer (jet).

I don't want them to fail, hopefully they can be more rational, I don't want them to end up with something like:

Bukannya pesawat siluman tapi malah pesawat goib.

Singapore Airshow 2024: Boeing remains confident in Indonesian F-15EX programme

20th February 2024 - 13:38 GMT | by Norbert Neumann in Singapore

Despite uncertainty over a clear timeline for final approval of the Indonesian F-15EX fighter programme, discussions have been ongoing between the US and Indonesian governments, as they work to address various aspects of the FMS deal.

Boeing has recently met with its Indonesian counterparts to discuss the F-15EX fighter jet sale, but the timeline for the sale’s conclusion has remained unclear, as the US and Indonesian governments work out the details of the deal.

Indonesia emerged as the first export customer of the EX model in August last year when it signed an MoU with the US manufacturer during a facility visit. The US$13.9 billion FMS was approved the previous year by the US State Department.

“We’re working through the conversations and making sure that we structure the right opportunity that works for everybody involved,” Rob Novotny, executive director of Fighters Business Development for the Air Dominance Division at Boeing, told Shephard on the sidelines of the Singapore Airshow 2024.

Novotny, who said the parties were continuing to move moving forward, said: “Meetings are happening all the time…[but] it’s an FMS case, so obviously in which manner the US government negotiates, I can’t speak to that.”

The Boeing representative alluded to the recently concluded Indonesian elections as one of the factors that could have caused slowdown in the F-15EX contract and prevented the establishment of a specific date. Financing profiling was one of the issues the two nations still had to work through.

When asked whether he was confident about the deal’s ultimate viability, Novotny said “I’m confident the requirement still exists. I’m confident that the customer is still excited. My opinion is that it’s [the F-15EX] is a great platform for what I think [Indonesia’s] needs are. If I bind those together, my confidence level for the opportunity continues to rise.”

Mate, I-22 is at most an imaginary plane to showcase potential Infoglobal products (avionics etc).

military aerospace project, then I suppose we finish Elang Hitam and then from there move on the ladder to design something more complex.

Manned aircraft with our monetary situation and most importantly political will is just impossible.

Even more impressive if there's an F-15EX with F110 GE-132.

Sadly there's no such project
