Moscow will sign a contract with Jakarta this year for the delivery of Sukhoi Su-35 'Flanker-E' multirole fighter aircraft to the Indonesian Air Force (Tentara Nasional Indonesia-Angkatan Udara: TNI-AU), the Russian TASS news agency reported on 6 June.
"Prior consent has been reached on the contract to deliver Su-35s to Indonesia, it will be [signed] this year," Viktor Kladov, director for international co-operation and regional policy at Russia's defence industry holding company, Rostec, was quoted as saying by the state-owned media outlet.
Indonesian defence minister Ryamizard Ryacudu said in 2016 that the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Jakarta was considering the acquisition of eight Su-35s.
China confirms it has received Su-35 fighter jets but noted that it might be the last combat plane China would import
