TEMPO.CO, Yogyakarta - Indonesian Air Force Chief of Staff Marshal Mohammad Tonny Harjono confirmed that there will be a new unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to complement the national weapons system (alutsista).

Tonny explained that unmanned aircraft will use satellite technology to support beyond-visual-range (BVR) or long-range air combat.

“We can operate it from outside the area that we want to monitor, for example in Papua or any other area, we can fly it from outside Papua,” Tonny said after the 78th anniversary of the Indonesian Air Force at the AAU Aerospace Field in Bantul, Yogyakarta, on Monday, April 22.

Tonny explained that the UAVs being imported include the CH-4, Anka, and Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) Bayraktar drones.

“Let’s pray that the Air Force will be adaptive to follow technological developments and changes in national, regional, and global situations,” he remarked.

According to him, these modern drones are part of the new defense equipment aircraft being imported to strengthen the Indonesian Air Force's capabilities.

In 2026, he revealed that the government plans to procure 42 Rafale fighter jets and undertake radar modernization, further enhancing the Air Force's operational capabilities.

Additionally, Tonny said that the Indonesian Air Force will have an Airbus A400M transport aircraft, an Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft, and a refueling aircraft (tanker) or a tanker or multi-role tanker transport (MRTT) aircraft.

^^^ Is this a typo/misquote or the Air Force indeed planning to buy another batch of 42 Rafales in 2026?

If its really BVR and long range air combat. Then it will be quite something. Amin to that.
But the list of drones mentioned in the articles can't do such task.

For drone BVR, a slight delay(comm delay) won't be a problem i guess.
