Spain Submits Tender to Supply Eurofighter Typhoon To Indonesia
Spain has submitted a tender to supply Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jets to the Indonesian government, entering a bidding war with other producers of combat aircraft.
Indonesia has dedicated 7 percent of budgetary spending to defense over the past two years in an attempt to regenerate an aging military arsenal to both match regional powers and to secure the vast archipelago.
The Eurofighter, faces serious competition from Russia’s Sukhoi and Sweden’s Gripen aircraft.
Gripen maker, Saab, opened a representative office in Indonesia last year. thejakartaglobe
