Boeing has outlined the scope of its industrial collaboration engagement with Indonesia as part of its Foreign Military Sale (FMS) contract to supply the Southeast Asian country with eight AH-64E Apache Guardian attack helicopters.
A spokesperson for Boeing told Jane’s on 5 June that the US corporation is collaborating with the Apache operator, the Indonesian Army (Tentara Nasional Indonesia-Angkatan Darat: TNI-AD), but that partnerships with local industry are still the subject of discussions.
Boeing is supporting the Indonesian Army's operation of recently delivered AH-64E Apache helicopters through a services contract that features spares, repairs and technical assistance.
The spokesperson added that the principal focus of collaboration is through a related contract with the TNI-AD that enables its engineers and technicians to support the helicopters, with assistance provided by Boeing.
