Israeli defense industries have been given the green light to offer certain military systems to Indonesia – the world’s largest Muslim country. Representatives from Israel’s defense industries will meet Indonesian defense establishment representatives at the international air exhibition set to take place next week in Singapore, in order to promote deals that are on the agenda.
According to foreign publications, Israel previously sold about 30 Skyhawk aircraft used by the IAF to the Indonesian air force during the 1980s after undergoing upgrades in Israel. Since then, according to foreign publications, Indonesia procured various weapon systems from Israeli companies.
Several Israeli companies have recently been given permission to offer their products to Indonesia. The products in question are UAVs, observation systems, various electronic systems, and more. It seems that Indonesia's defense budgets are quite significant, and that its military is undergoing a process of renovation, which opens up
many possibilities to the Israeli defense industries.
Any deal, or even the presentation of products before Indonesian representatives, necessitates advanced approval by the Israeli defense establishment. However, as mentioned, a number of such approvals have been recently granted. Several possible deals will be proposed during the meetings planned this week in Singapore. A source close to the issue said that at this initial stage, there’s potential for tens of millions of dollars to be made.
