Before the year 2012 , arguably the line sista air to air missiles ( AAM / water -to-air missile ) capability the Air Force is quite inferior when compared AU AU Malaysia and Singapore . Because nearly three decades , the Air Force ‘s fleet of fighter jets rely on artificial Raytheon Sidewinder missiles . The Sidewinder version is owned by the Air Force AIM and AIM – P2 – P4 .
The most recent was , AIM P – 4 package purchased together with procurement of F- 16 Fighting Falcon in 1989. AIM – P4 can be fired even if the enemy plane came from forward facing position , make a change in the style of melee duel ( dog fight ) .
At the same time , the neighbor country already operates a medium-range AAM , AIM – 7 Sparrow and AIM – 120 AMRAAM , the latter is jenisbeyond visual range air -to-air missile , AMRAAM suddenly a frightening specter in modern air warfare , missiles can be shot up to 70 km with a speed of Mach 4 . For this one , although only come a bit late , be thankful for the Air Force now has unmatchable , the R – 77 missile for its fleet of Sukhoi , the Russian made missiles capable of racing at speeds of up to Mach 4 a distance of 80 km .
Well , back to the line of air-to- air missiles short range , the current mainstay jet Air Force F – 16 Fighting Falcon and Hawk 200 only had one mainstay Sidewinder AIM – P4 , then Singapore and Malaysia in addition to already bring the AIM – 7 Sparrow and AIM – 120 AMRAAM , the two neighboring countries Indonesia had already had a newer version of the Sidewinder . Like Singapore , because this country is a close U.S. ally in Southeast Asia , Singapore in addition to a AIM-9J/P/S Sidewinder , also already have AIM – 9X Sidewinder to strengthen cyst in jet F – 15SG Strike Eagle . So also with Malaysia which helped buy the AIM – 9X to the F/A-18 Hornet
AIM–9X is the last version of the Sidewinder family, this missile was developed in 1986. These missiles have the capability first shot and first kill more responsive. Even the missile is equipped with thrust vectoring connected to the guidance fins, meaning that the missile can reach targets that turn though. AIM–9X turning radius is 120 meters, with this capability, pesaswat launcher does not need to maneuver to adjust to the target.
One of the Sukhoi Su–27 Air Force. Looks right under the nose of the plane, one unit of R–73 missiles were in the display.
KRI Kujang 642 and KRI 641 has been fitted with sickle cannon AK–630
DS–(IDB): Two Quick Ship Missile Type KCR–40 appeared in photographs in a military forum Kaskus. This time the two KCR–40, respectively 641 and KRI KRI Kujang sickles 642 is equipped with rotary cannon / gatling cannon AK–630 as the main shift vector Denel 20 mm cannon mounted on the bow while.
AK–630 is a close-in weapon system weapon system (CIWS) Russian-made fully automatic. This system consists of six barrel 30mm rotary cannon that is mounted in an enclosed automatic turret, the gun was directed by radar and tracking systems as well as equipped with a television for a particular variant detection. Code number “630″ means 6 barrels caliber 30 mm.
Vessel with a fixed propeller propulsion system 5 This leaves the full armament consisted of 1 unit of cannon AK–630 6 barrel caliber 30 mm in the bow, 2 units of Denel Vector cannon caliber 20 mm in the bridge and 2 units of SSM missile C–705 at the stern.
It appears also that the two C–705 missile launchers on the stern has been installed, by shifting the vector Denel 20 mm cannon in the direction of the bridge, the entire installation was completed KCR–40 weapon system. The weapon system will be integrated with the Combat Management System SEWACO.
Quick Ship KCR–40 missile has a length of 44 meters, 8 meters wide, 3.4 meters high and weighs 238 tons. With a fixed propeller propulsion system 5 leaves, then KCR 40 capable of sailing at speeds of 30 knots.
KCR – 40 made of special steel High Tensile Steel hull (hull) and Aluminum Alloy for uppers. Steel High Tensile Steel is a product of PT. Krakatau Steel. The two alloy material makes this boat has high stability and speed when sailing.
Until now it has made 4 KCR–40 for Satkat (Quick Ship Navy unit), respectively sickle–641 KRI, KRI Kujang–642, KRI dirk–642, and KRI Alamang–644.
In compliance with the Minimum Essential Force, the Navy plans to have 38 Quick Ship which consists of 26 missiles and 12 Quick Ship Quick Ship Torpedo.
Before the development of KCR and KCR–40–60, the Navy has had 14 Quick Ship Missile (4 FPB–57 Snapper class, 6 FPB–57 Pandrong Tacoma Saber class and class 4) and 2 Fast Torpedo Boats (FPB–57 Lion class) .
With the development of KCR and KCR–40–60 the Navy requires 22 fast ship missiles / torpedoes more satisfied of both types. Thus, the overall fast ship missile / torpedo Navy platforms will consist of 4 ships: KCR–40, Tacoma–Saber class, FPB–57 and KCR–60.
JAS 39 Gripen
Jakarta – 07/05/2014 . Generation fighter jet ’80s F – 5E Tiger II in the Air Force Air Squadron 14 will soon be replaced because it is old .
One interested party is supplying a replacement aircraft SAAB JAS 39 Gripen series . ” We offer a replacement , JAS39 Gripen series with the broadest possible options , ” said Vice President Head of Indonesian SAAB , Peter Calrqvist .
” Starting from the payment scheme and procurement , technology transfer , provide assistance to independence logistics systems , maintenance , and oprasionalisasi Gripen , and so forth . This is our commitment to Indonesia . We offer an integrated system , ” said Carlqvist , in a conversation in Jakarta , recently.
JAS 39 Gripen series will compete with Sukhoi Su – 35 Flanker E ( Russia ) , Dassault Rafale F1 ( France ) , and the Boeing – McDonnell Douglas F / A 18E / F Super Hornet ( USA ) . Air Force has experienced fighters operate the United States ( of which the F – 16A / B Fighting Falcon , the OV – 10F Bronco and F – 5E / F Tiger II ) and Russia ( starting from the Tupolev Tu – 16 Badger and now Sukhoi Su – 27/30MKI ) .
In Southeast Asia , Thailand is the country ‘s first Gripen operators JAS39 . They chose 12 units JAS39E / F Gripen who began to arrive next year .
For Indonesia , SAAB also open up the option if Indonesia is interested in buying the latest lineup of the most reliable , JAS39 Gripen NG , which has the most advanced technology of all Gripen series .
Carlqvist stated , ” We are not just selling aircraft , integrated air defense system but powerful with a very low operating cost but effective . As an illustration , the Gripen is very easy to operate , does not require an air base for supporting the system can be driven to move , even from the motorway . This is what we apply in Sweden , ” he said .
All units and personnel supporting the Gripen in air squadron full strength , he said , could be shifted to anywhere as needed .
” The air base is definitely the most coveted early in the war . What if the airstrip were sabotaged or bombed ? This is one of the important things that we anticipate in the development of the JAS 39 Gripen series , ” he said .
He argued Gripen was developed with a range of advanced technologies that fit the purpose .
Among these are footing ” air base ” is mobile and the ability of each unit Gripen to communicate and exchange data with each other , both between the aircraft , air bases , command control , logistics centers , and so forth .
He pointed out , ” If all of a sudden there was a target to be destroyed , but that you flew the Gripen does not have kesenjatan system that fits with the purposes , the control center can know the Gripen nearby who could carry out the mission . ”
Gripen mileage can also be compensated by the presence of ” air bases ” that mobile .
He pointed Jagorawi highway that could be used for this purpose .
Indonesia is very rich with the air base infrastructure that can be applied to the operation of the Gripen .
” Enacting and reassemble the engine Gripen only needs 1 hour. Completing all missile systems and kesenjataannya to complete just 10 minutes, including refilling the fuel , ” he said .
About JAS 39 Gripen offers this series , the Swedish Ambassador to Indonesia , Ewa Polano , said , ” We are obviously very pleased to see the Brazilian chose the Gripen , followed by Thailand and Malaysia reportedly interested as well . Even Brazil we also help build spare parts factory in Sao Paulo as part of our commitment on this weaponry technology transfer . ”
Polano , who will soon be his new post in Doha , Qatar , pointed out that Indonesia will receive equal treatment of all those things .
” Switzerland is also currently hold a referendum on the Gripen procurement , and one important aspect that we have to offer is this, ” he said .
