Pemerintah Indonesia dan Australia menandatangani nota kesepahaman (Memorandum of Understanding/MoU) hibah 4 pesawat Hercules tipe C-130H dari Australia. 

Sekretaris Jenderal Kementerian Pertahanan Marsekal Madya Eris Haryanto dan
Panglima Angkatan Bersenjata Australia David Hurley menandatangani MoU tentang hibah pesawat tersebut di RAAF Darwin, Australia, Senin.

Menteri Pertahanan Purnomo Yusgiantoro dan koleganya, Menteri Pertahanan Australia Stephen Smith, menyaksikan penandatanganan nota kesepahaman hibah yang dilakukan di depan pesawat Hercules yang akan dihibahkan itu.

Dalam sambutannya, Smith mengatakan Australia sudah mendapat persetujuan Amerika Serikat (AS), sebagai produsen pesawat Hercules, untuk menghibahkan ke Indonesia. Ia menambahkan pemberian hibah produk-produk militer asal AS harus seizin negara tersebut.

Menteri Purnomo Yusgiantoro mengatakan hibah pesawat Hercules itu dibutuhkan Indonesia, terutama untuk mendukung operasi-operasi militer bukan perang seperti penanganan bencana. 

"Atas nama pemerintah, saya sangat mengapresiasi hal ini," katanya.

Kepala Staf Angkatan Udara Marsekal TNI Imam Sufaat mengatakan, empat pesawat hibah tersebut tidak bisa langsung dibawa pulang karena akan direnovasi terlebih dulu.

Perbaikan, termasuk pengecatan dan penggantian suku cadang, untuk pesawat yang dihibahkan membutuhkan dana sekitar 50 juta dolar Australia.

Australia's gift of C-130 Hercules to aid Indonesian asylum patrol


Australia is handing over 2 refurbished C-130 Hercules aircraft to Indonesia, boosting Jakarta's ability to patrol for asylum boats and assist in maritime emergencies.


The C-130H models are the first of four surplus Hercules planes to be given to the Indonesian Air Force in ready-to-fly condition, Defence Minister Stephen Smith said in Darwin.


The H-models are being phased out by Australia, but are still in service with the US Coast Guard for long-range maritime patrol and search and rescue.


The RAAF has refurbished its heavy transport fleet with the purchase of six giant C-17s and the latest C-130J model Hercules.


"We're in a position to decommission some of our C-130Hs and as part of that process, we are gifting four to Indonesia," Mr Smith, adding the donation was "very important" to help improve Indonesia's air logistics capability.



Australia's recent assistance to Indonesia in the fight against people-smuggling also includes cash to build 12 new police stations in coastal provinces and two small inshore patrol boats for use by Indonesia's marine police.


Julia Gillard and Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono meet in Darwin today as part of an agreement to boost cooperation between the two countries.


Other bilateral talks will be held between Mr Smith and his Indonesian counterpart Purnomo Yusgiantoro in which the vexed issue of combating asylum seekers will be raised.


"This is a project we've been working on for a couple of years now involving Australia, the United States and Indonesia," Mr Smith said.


"We of course received the C-130s from the United States and United States' approval is required for on-gifting."
