Russia has offered to comply with transfer-of-technology scheme, if Indonesia considers to purchase Sukhoi Su-35 jet fighters.

“I talked to Indonesian Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu a couple of months ago. We are fully aware of Indonesian government regulations on transfer-of-technology and industrial-offset schemes,” Russian Ambassador to Indonesia Mikhail Galuzin was quoted as saying by Jakarta Post on Thursday.

“We are ready and open for further discussion with our Indonesian partners on the feasibility of procuring Su-35s,” the diplomat added.

The statements came amid fierce competition from the world’s top jet fighter producers to supply replacements for the Indonesian Air Force’s (TNI-AU) ageing F-5 E/F Tiger IIs.

But Galuzin believes Russia’s military aircraft technology could be the best replacement.  

The other contenders are Eurofighter Typhoon and Swedish-built SAAB Gripen fighters.

In January, 2015, Indonesian Defense Ministry spokesperson Col. Djundan Eko Bintoro was quoted as saying that, during Galuzin’s meeting with Defense Minister of Indonesia Ryamizard Ryacudu, the envoy had also offered Kilo Class Type 636 submarines and Mi-17 helicopters to bolster the Indonesia’s maritime defense system.
