The Indonesian military has received six more helicopters Mi-17, with a further six to follow taking its total fleet to 18.  Defense Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro accepted delivery in a ceremony with representatives from Russian helicopter broker agency Rosoboronexport.  The helicopters will help boost the Indonesian Army’s transport and logistics fleet.

The procurement on the 18 Mi-17 helicopters was the first deal that has been conducted after Indonesia ceased armament procurement since 1997. It was done under a soft loan scheme provided by the Russian government.
