Indonesia offered 10 more F-16s; wants AGM-65K2 Mavericks

Indonesia's Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro has revealed that a second offer of F-16s to Indonesia consists of 10 additional aircraft. He had previously been coy about revealing the number. Indonesia has already been offered 24 refurbished ex-USAF F-16C/Ds, and is currently operating a fleet of 10 F-16A/Bs.

Meanwhile the Defense Security Cooperation Agency has notified the U.S Congress of a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Government of Indonesia for 18 AGM-65K2 Maverick Air-to-Surface missiles. The AGM-65K is an updated derivative of AGM-65G with an improved 480x480 pixels CCD-TV sensor.
