Quoted from page Globalfirepower, Thursday, June 13, 2013, Indonesia’s military strength is not only designed to fight terrorists in the country. However, unable to resist the attacks of the invasion of other countries.
Indonesia is ranked 15th with a power index of 0.76. Active personnel strength reached 438 410 people, with the value of the power of 400 armored vehicles, military aircraft power value 444, and 187 helicopters strength values.

This analysis provides a definition of actual military power map, not focused on the numerical superiority fighter or combatant ship like that become public opinion. That’s why although Singapore had the highest fighter force in ASEAN, the island nation remains unable to surpass Malaysia, the Philippines and Indonesia. Indicator of the strength of defense equipment is not a determining factor of a state military superiority.
We had been affected by psychological opinion that Jakarta will be destroyed within two hours if attacked by fighter Singapore. In fact what it is, it’s the biggest archipelago in the world, has 240 million inhabitants nationalist character, abundant natural resources, and most importantly in military strategy, our country made up of thousands of point defense. Compare this with the state of the island, just a few points on an island. In defense, the island is more easily conquered. Clear air force is not a major factor in winning the battle for the mother of all wars is the army.
Just a comparison, here presented maps of military force between Indonesia and Malaysia based on analysis of Global Fire Power:

From the above data we can put some notes on current conditions, for example, Indonesia’s foreign exchange reserves are now at $ 122.000.000.000, – (Late July 2011), the amount of current KRI 152 unit range. Ships with the status of KAL, CTF and Water Police are not taken into account by the GFP, but this jenir ships played a role in maritime security patrols or patrol beaches (Coastal Patrol Craft). Then the reserve components (Active Military Reserves) may exceed the amount of GFP calculation if the Security Unit, Civil Service Police Unit, Civil Defence in the calculation.
GFP analysis presented is sufficient objective evidence and renewable, is able to present the latest data provide a comprehensive picture of a country’s military power by force of military resources, weapons systems, naval forces, logistic support and distribution base, natural resources for survival , financial support and geographical conditions. Exciting fighter force combined with other weapons systems whether it be transport aircraft, helicopters, tanks, APCs, artillery is the strength of the army. While naval power into separate factors contributing to real military strength of a country.
Well, it became clear that we are the best in the region in military rank. Therefore we need to eliminate the psychological opinions expressed mengunder estimate the power of the military, as if the military is the most weak, as if the military was unable to overcome the Singapore air strikes, as if the military was unable to escort the territory of Republic of Indonesia. Minimum essential force in conditions that have not achieved our military was able to occupy 15 world ranking. In fact, from 2012 till 2014 it will arrive at least 60 new aircraft types, 15 different types of transport aircraft, 55 combat various types of Heli, 30 Fast Missile Vessel, 3 submarines, 2 Fregat, hundreds of tanks and armored vehicles of various types. Not to mention the project surface to surface missiles, surface-to-air, anti-tank missiles and rockets Rhan thousands of domestic production.
This means that opportunities to increase military rank was very open. But more than that, we should always be confident in the ability of our state guard commander, with the spirit of combat, with the quality of army soldiers who always outperformed neighboring countries. Once again our military is the foremost among the neighbor. And that we should take care and maintain the supply alusista modern and thrilling. And it must be consistent and continuous, –
