Reports indicate Indonesia has signed a letter of intent to buy Airbus A400M

France says Indonesia signs tentative deal to buy A400M

Indonesia has signed a letter of intent to buy Airbus A400M military aircraft, the office of French President Francois Hollande said on Wednesday.

The provisional agreement was signed during a visit by Hollande to Indonesia and covers an unspecified number of aircraft, according to a list of deals issued by his office.

If completed, it would provide the troubled European military programme with a second export customer after Malaysia.

A previous deal to export A400M airplanes to South Africa was cancelled in 2009. Chile was also at one time seen as an export partner for the aircraft, which has run into billions of euros of cost overruns and years of development delays.

I’d rather go for Japanese C2 or Russian Ilyushin IL-76MD-90A and save the difference to put it into advance jet fighters than into transport planes……Earlier reports suggest the package is $2 billion for 5 A400M costing $400 million each…….However, the decision may be political…….or Indonesia gets TOT……..
