I have no idea, unless a new contract signed, new hulls shouldn't be being produced there. FNSS has not disclosed any new contracts for additional batches.
Maybe PINDAD continuing with another foreign partner to get their version of Kaplan?

That also looks a bit small to be KAPLAN.

Yes that is Kaplan / Harimau, viewed from frontside, bottom part of the body. Should be related with ToT for next batch order.

that's no small though, merely camera positioning illusion, the group were standing far away from the Gantry milling machine section, and they were on somekind of leveled platform that make's the hull seems small.

sadly it ain't that great compared to Stinger
less range, less speed, less warhead
stinger had 1,02 Kg warhead, though i don't know how much is the TNT equivalent for the chemical explosive used there, merapi described 1,6kg Payload would be enough to take down choppers, firing range and speed can be achieved by developing more energetic propellant, and try to reduce drag.

now that is the confusing one, are those whole 3Kg is explosive filler or what ?, since they only mentioned about 1.02kg worth of explosive filler.

"The warhead is a 3 kg penetrating hit-to-kill warhead type with an impact fuze and a self-destruct timer. The warhead section consists of a fuze assembly and the equivalent of ONE POUND OF HIGH EXPLOSIVE encased in a pyrophoric titanium cylinder"

1kg worth of explosive filler is pretty normal in most manpads, some of the older model even had less filler.

Ministry of Defense Formulates New Roadmap for MALE "Drone" Production

The Indonesian government through the Ministry of Defense (Kemenhan) is formulating a new roadmap for producing Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) drones or unmanned aircraft (PTTA).

This was stated by Deputy Minister of Defense (Wamenhan) Muhammad Herindra when opening the "National Symposium on Unmanned Aircraft" in Jakarta, Monday (23/10/2023).

The formulation of the drone or MALE unmanned aircraft is a follow-up to the direction of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and the Defense Industrial Policy Committee (KKIP).

"There is a need to utilize all technological, human and domestic budget resources to realize the independence of the unmanned aircraft industry, as well as instructions for holding an unmanned aircraft symposium to find solutions to the PTTA MALE problem," said Herindra in a press release from the Ministry of Defense's Public Relations Bureau, Tuesday (24/10/2023).

Herindra then hopes that the symposium can produce strategic formulations to strengthen defense industry synergies.

"Especially unmanned aircraft, as well as evaluating the PTTA MALE consortium and formulating a new roadmap for the success of this program," he said.

Wamehan in his press statement also said that unmanned aircraft have become a vital component in a country's defense and security forces.

"Considering the era of modern defense which is increasingly complex and technology is developing rapidly, the independence of the rapid unmanned flying technology industry in the field of defense and security has a very important urgency," said Herindra.
