Indonesia orders two A400M in multirole tanker and transport configuration
The Indonesia Ministry of Defence has ordered two Airbus A400M aircraft in multirole tanker and transport configuration for the Indonesian Air Force. The contract will become effective in 2022. A letter of Intent was also signed for the future acquisition of four additional A400M aircraft. The agreement is signed at Dubai Air Show.

“The A400M is a truly multirole platform and will greatly enhance the Indonesian Air Force’s tactical air-to-air capabilities. This aircraft will play a key role in other key missions, including paratrooping and heavy cargo transportation. We are also looking at an additional A400M acquisition in the near term, with future A400M developments such as firefighting, an important capability we are exploring jointly with Airbus. The A400M will become a national asset and the cornerstone for Human Assistance and Disaster Response missions beyond its tactical and air-to-air capabilities,” said Prabowo Subianto, Minister of Defence of the Republic of Indonesia.
