Rheinmetall at Indo Defence 2014

A trusted partner for Indonesia’s national security needs

As one of the world’s leading suppliers of defence technology systems, Rheinmetall Defence is a trusted partner of Indonesia. The Düsseldorf, Germany-based Group will be on hand at Indo Defence 2014 with a representative selection of its diverse array of products for military and security forces. Building on a proud tradition, Rheinmetall covers many different capability categories.

The Indonesian armed forces know they can rely on Rheinmetall products and systems. At Indo Defence 2014 the Indonesian Army is displaying a number of new combat systems supplied by Rheinmetall, while the Indonesian Air Force is furnishing a fire control unit and an effector from the Skyshield air defence system.

Combat systems experience

Two combat vehicles that have proven indispensable in recent decades are the Leopard main battle tank and the Marder infantry fighting vehicle. Combining its proven competence in land systems with its expertise as a systems integrator, Rheinmetall is able to modify legacy systems to make them more than a match for current challenges and threats.

The Indonesian Ministry of Defence recently contracted with Rheinmetall to supply it with tracked armoured vehicles, logistical support and ammunition. Along with 103 thoroughly overhauled and modernized Leopard 2 main battle tanks, the order encompasses 42 Marder 1A3 infantry fighting vehicles and 11 various armoured recovery and engineering vehicles. The Indonesian Army will display some of those combat systems at Indo Defence 2014. The Group also offers lifecycle support for land systems. Visitors to Indo Defence 2014 can learn more at the Rheinmetall booth D046.

In order to operate in difficult terrain – in the mountains, for example, in the jungle, on coastal terrain or in an urban environment – today’s armed forces need a flexible, quickly deployable, protected platform that can be readily integrated into network-enabled operations and which, above all, can be transported by air either on board or as underslung cargo. It was precisely with these capabilities in mind that Rheinmetall developed the Wiesel (‘weasel’) family of vehicles, which the Group is presenting at Indo Defence 2014.
