Jakarta – PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) terus melanjutkan kegiatannya merancang pesawat jet tempur IF-X (Indonesian Fighter Experimental), melalui Kegiatan System Requirement Review (SRR).

Dalam kegiatan SSR tersebut, sejumlah pemangku kepentingan diikutkan, antara lain Kemhan, TNI-AU, KKIP, Bappenas, BPPT, LAPAN, Perguruan Tinggi (ITB, UI, ITS, UGM dan UNDIP) serta beberapa industri lokal terkait seperti PT.LEN, CMI, dan InfoGlobal.

Jet tempur yang dirancang bersama dengan Korea Selatan ini disebut-sebut bakal menyaingi F18, dan harganya pun juga lebih murah.

Dalam siaran pers, Kamis (26/6/2014), PTDI mengatakan, SRR merupakan salah satu tahapan dalam program pengembangan dan rancang bangun pesawat tempur. Pada tahapan ini diharapkan program akan mendapatkan berbagai masukan baik teknis maupun non-teknis dari para pakar pada bidangnya masing-masing, secara independen.

Dalam pelaksanaannya kegiatan tersebut dibagi dalam lima panel. Satu panel paripurna dan empat panel lainnya meliputi:

Requirement study, System Engineering and Technology Readiness.
Configuration Design and Analysis
Propulsion and Subsystems
Air Combat Systems.

Pesawat tempur KF-X/IF-X dirancang bangun bersama oleh para ahli dari Indonesia dan Korea Selatan. Sejak tahun 2011 lalu, tim dari kedua bangsa telah bekerja keras di Korea Selatan untuk menghasilkan konfigurasi yang bisa memenuhi kebutuhan dan persyaratan operasi Angkatan Udara kedua negara.

Pesawat ini masuk dalam kategori generasi 4,5 yang kemampuannya akan melebihi sejumlah pesawat tempur produk negara lain. Dengan kemampuannya itu diharapkan akan menjadi salah satu pilihan utama bagi sejumlah negara yang membutuhkan pesawat tempur. Sementara untuk pesawat IF-X dirancang bangun sendiri oleh putera-puteri bangsa Indonesia berdasarkan persyaratan operasi murni dari Angkatan Udara Republik Indonesia.

Dengan penyelenggaran acara tersebut di atas, diharapkan tim KFX/IFX mendapatkan masukan untuk dapat dijadikan pegangan  dalam melakukan tindakan ataupun berupa rekomendasi untuk perbaikan rancang bangun (desain).

“Bagaimanapun bangsa Indonesia adalah bangsa yang besar dan program pesawat tempur yang kita rancang sekarang ini bukan saja akan menjadi salah satu sumber kekuatan alutsista dalam negeri, melainkan juga akan menjadi salah satu posisi tawar NKRI yang diperhitungkan. Putera-puteri terbaik bangsa yang terlibat dalam rancang bangun pesawat tempur KF-X/IF-X adalah para pionir yang melahirkan generasi pertama pesawat tempur dan ini akan menjadi bagian sejarah penting bangsa Indonesia ke depan,” tutur Direktur Utama PTDI Budi Santoso.

Pesaing pesawat ini adalah F18 buatan Amerika Serikat dan Dessault Rafale buatan Prancis. Produksi tipe IFX di dalam negeri menghemat pengeluaran anggaran karena harga jual lebih murah.

Pesawat untuk varian Indonesia yakni IFX akan diproduksi di markas PTDI di Bandung, Jawa Barat. Jet tempur KFX mulai diproduksi secara massal pada tahun 2020. Saat ini tenaga ahli PTDI sedang mempersiapkan rancangan pesawat tempur generasi 4,5 tersebut. (detik.com).

    Developing Countries Fighter Aircraft Challenge Western Military Planes

    Source : Defenseworld.net Analysis ~ Dated : Wednesday, June 25, 2014 @ 02:40 PM

    Developing Countries Fighter Aircraft Challenge Western Military Planes

    The sky high cost of fighter aircraft acquisition is forcing developing countries to embark on their own programs in the process challenging the price and performance of American and European fighters.

    Turkey, South Korea, India, China and Pakistan claim to beat out western aircraft on cost. Though their technology may be inferior to that of Western or Russian aircraft, the level of equipment and armaments on these aircraft is considered ‘sufficient’ for their air forces.

    What should worry airplane manufacturers such as Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Eurofighter, Dassault and Saab is that some of the fighter plane manufacturers from the developing countries are eyeing the export market for relatively lower-priced fighter aircraft. This has come at a time when some countries in Asia, Africa and South America are looking to replace their Vietnam-era planes such as the F-5s, Mirage F-1s and MiG-21s with more modern planes.

    The South Korean KFX project which is aimed at producing F-16-class fighter jets is slated to fructify by 2023 and deploy 120 units over the following several years. “The KFX may prove that smaller nations, when combining funds and resources, can produce a near fifth-generation aircraft that approaches the capability of a fighter produced by countries with far greater resources, such as the U.S., Russia and China. But this is unlikely. KFX, if completed, may be appealing to less wealthy nations who cannot afford the F-35”, Richard Weitz, director of the Center for Political-Military Analysis at the Hudson Institute was quoted as saying in the New York times.

    Japan, whose military industry was blunted after World War II, is trying to get back into the global defence business. Its planned Mitsubishi ATD-X ShinShin developed by Japanese Ministry of Defense Technical Research & Development Institute is a first of its kind jet fighter with some advanced technology not even available in western fighters.

    This fighter plane is being developed as a 5th gen fighter to form the mainstay of the Japanese Self Defence Forces. Japan plans to replace its aging fleet of F-4s and F-15s planes.

    The U.S. RAND Corporation published a report on China’s arms exports, claiming that the J-10 fighter jet sold for less than US$40 million; whereas by contrast, the U.S. F-16, a similar class aircraft in active service, costs US$65 million. FC-1 fighter jets, K-8 jet trainer and light attack aircraft produced from joint research and design between China and Pakistan.

    Reports say that Myanmar is looking to purchase a license to domestically produce the J-17 aircraft, which is called the FC-1 Xiaolong in China. If the report is accurate, it would make Myanmar the first foreign purchaser of the jet. Currently, only Pakistan’s Air Force operates the J-17.

    The JF-17 is a lightweight single engine multi-role combat aircraft developed jointly by China and Pakistan

    It can be armed with a variety of bombs and missiles including PL-5EII, PL-9C and PL-12 AAMs, C-802A anti-ship missiles, general purpose bombs, and laser guided munitions and countermeasures on its 7 hard points (four under wing, 2 wingtip, 1 under fuselage). The aircraft’s standard set of armaments are supplemented by a 23 mm GSh-23-2 twin barrel cannon or 30 mm version of the same.

    The standard export price for the JF-17 Block I is $20 million and Block 2 being $25 million. Pakistan Air Force is the lone operator of the JF-17 with 54 aircraft operational including 6 prototypes.

    Pakistan is the most likely buyer for the J-31, at this moment following their joint development work on the JF-17 Thunder advanced fighter.

    J-31 is a twin-engine, mid-size fifth-generation jet fighter. It is said to be equipped with twin Russian RD-93 engines.

    Turkey hopes that the indigenous TF-X will fly by 2023. Turkey’s aerospace powerhouse, Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), has been debating three designs.

    Turkey’s Defense Industry Executive Committee (SSIK) decided to design, develop, and manufacture an indigenous next generation air-to-air combat fighter which would replace Turkey’s F-16 fleet and work together with the F-35.

    India’s Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) , also called Tejas has been long in development but the program has accelerated over the last few years with a limited series of aircraft flying with the Indian Air Force. The aircraft is the Saab Gripen class and is rumored to satisfy the Indian Air Force’s demand for a replacement for the MiG-21.

      q gk setuju ma beberapa katanya

      Indonesia itu bangsa yg besar serta memiliki sumber daya yg lebih besar d banding amerika, walaupun sumber daya amerika dan china di gabung belum tentu bs nyaingi sumber daya Indonesia.
      Namun kenyataannya pendanaan Indonesia lebih kecil daripada amerika padahal sumber dayanya melebihi mereka.

      hal inilah yg perlu d perbaiki bersama” semoga bisa diperbaiki segera, karena bila tidak Indonesia akan menjadi negara tempat pembuangan sampah negara” maju bilamana sumber daya Indonesia habis, sedangkan Indonesia memerlukan pemasukan pendapatan untuk belanja negara, q mencurigai ada banyak hal di esdmnya.
      kalau salah ya maaf 😀
      maaf oot 😀

    Bagaimanapun bangsa indonesia adalah bangsa yang besar……he….he…..

    Apapun bisa dilakukan oleh Indonesia dengan syarat 1. Uang jangan dikorupsi 2. Maksimalkan pendapatan dari SDA dengan tidak digadaikan kepada asing dan tidak dicuri oleh asing, 3. Sejahterakan rakyat 4. Pilih pemimpin yang mementingkan kemakmuran rakyatnya, bukan agen asing yang hanya menginginkan Bangsa Indonesia tidak punya kemampuan.dan mendahulukan kepentingan asing.

    Kalo Bisa ,… itu LM di pindahin aja ke Indonesia,… biar R&D semakin baik,…
    Kalo Bisa,…. minimal bikin Copyannya lah,….
    he he he,… “Ngarang”,….!

    Di harapkan pengembangan IFX sebaiknya memiliki tehnologi yang tidak kalah bersaing dengan F22, SU 35 bahkan F35. inovasinya harus seprti itu, jika tidak bagaimana mungkin IFX mampu bersaing tanding di udara dengan rifal 2 yg lain. masalah biaya. Kita Indonesia negara sangat kaya. Mengenai sumber daya. Rekut semua orang2 cerdas baik didalam maupun diluar negeri. Panggil mereka semua. beri fasilitas. apa yang tidak bisa!!!.
