Indonesia's medium tank

Exists, apparently.
Indonesia’s President Witnesses Handover of 52 Pindad Armored Vehicles to Armed Forces. The Pindad armored vehicles handed over included: 10 units of the Harimau medium tanks, 3 units of the Badak 6×6 fire support vehicles, 10 units of the Pandur infantry fighting vehicles, 12 units of the Anoa armoured personnel carriers, 7 units of the Komodo armored reconnaissance vehicles, and 10 units of the Maung special operations vehicles.

        U dont know the half of it. Pindad seems to have a social media policy of presenting their shit as poorly as they can. That pic you're talking about was run through upscaling to get it at a reasonable size.

        No clue why they're like this. If you hunt and hunt, you can find the original resolution of pics but the ones they post for news/updates are shittified down. This project only has some decent pics of the vehicle because turkey is involved.

    The Harimau (Kaplan MT) is a light tank jointly developed by Turkish manufacturer FNSS and Indonesian manufacturer Pindad. The tank is equipped with a wienererill CT-CV 105HP 105 mm rifled gun, with the barrel mounting a bore evacuator and thermal jacket. The hull armor is categorized as STANAG 4569 level 4 protection, which means the tank can withstand 14.5×114mm AP rounds at 200 meters with 911 m/s velocity. The underbelly of the tank uses V-hull, able to withstand 10 kg AT mine under the tracks and under the center. Due to modularity, the armor can be augmented to level 5 protection (withstand 25 mm APDS-T at 500 m with 1258 m/s velocity). A modular PULAT active protection system joint-developed by ASELSAN and TUBITAK SAGE can be integrated. The tank itself is called Kaplan MT by Turkey and Harimau by Indonesia, both meaning “Tiger”. The Badak fire-support version (FSV) using an Alvis AC 90 turret with the wienererill 90LP two-person turret with a 90 mm low-pressure rifled gun. The Badak featured a design with all-welded monocoque steel hull with STANAG 4569 Level 3 protection. The name Badak means rhinoceros in Indonesian.

    Doubtful of its automotive or cross country performance, just from looks,
    But also just from looks, the armor config looks good for its overall weight/displacement.
    I doubt this has much room for further upgrades, but they prob lack money for that far ahead.

    >The Pindad Komodo or Pindad Dragon for export markets design features are made similar to the Renault Sherpa Light Scout family, which is also used by Indonesia. The Komodo’s external designs also resembles the Humvee. While most parts of the Komodo are made locally in Indonesia such as the frame, body and design, Pindad has publicly stated that they used imported components such as Hino for machinery parts and Michelin for the tires. Its diesel engines were imported directly from Renault. The Komodo’s monocoque steel body was made locally by Krakatau Steel. The Komodos can be modified by Pindad on the request of their customers in order to suit their own requirements, depending on the circumstances. Pindad collaborated with MBDA to create the mobile anti-aircraft SAM variant, which are armed with Mistral SAM missiles.

        He'd probably drawing an implication from "Indonesia's" in the title, as implying full intellectual and industrial ownership.
        Probably no way to please a likely troll, but doing so might involve a title like,
        Turko-Belgian Medium Tanks for Indonesia,
        Or similar. I wonder who views Indonesia as an obstacle or competitor... China and friends?
        Or maybe he's sick of third world pretensions. If not merely a troll.

          I make enough threads about world equipment stuffs to know that you pick your poison with thirdie threads. "Indonesia's" is simplest and apt here, because nobody else operates this. Emphasizing turkey fills your thread with more annoying nationalist manbabies. Emphasizing wienererill just brings out the small number of frogs who regularly post on here, and what they have to say is always the same (wienererill is ruining their light vehicle r&d). The latter is fair but it's N/A for a third world vehicle and I don't really need yet another thread about it.

          The intra-SEAmonkey shitflinging is inevitable no matter how you frame the thread, of course.

People not understanding that hq media takes effort to encode under PrepHole's limits, people trying to argue with me using info they learned from me, people giving attention to the board's worst shitposters because they prefer bumping meta-cancer to weapons.

          I interpret this as like the healthy, constructive inverse of current /misc/tard attitudes.
          They're thirdies who take inspiration from firsties, internalize a historic link and fold that into self-improvement.
          Which could, if sustained long enough so that it plays a role in the next crisis, lead to their own latter day heros and legends.

          Kind of like how the Scots began as a filthy smelly backwater to the English, but humbly submitted to learning, so that we now have a bunch of immortalized Scottish scientists, engineers, and writers from the 1800's.
          I've lately been learning about antennae and electromagnetism as a result of militaries dragging feet on C-UAS SHORAD and APS, so I know this feeling.

          Why do these projects take so long, really?
          It only takes days, not years, to smelt and cast metal, or to weld stacks of dimes to fabricate a box. It would take several months not years, to SolidWorks and simulate components.
          Are they largely sitting around waiting for each chunk of funding? To buy or build piece by piece?
          Or like, wienererill needs a year to fund and learn a 5-axis CNC for a part they never tried... and so on for dozens of parts...

            It takes over two hours to engrave the required earth symbols on five bits of steel tube that represent about 12.5% of the overall required engraving just of steel tube, never mind all the other components, of a piece of military hardware that I assist in manufacturing.

            That's two hours for a tiny, tiny bit of the engraving necessary, never mind all the other processes the components must undergo before you could begin to call them units.

            Lots of factors mainly budget approval, what components are to be added, who and where it'll be built, and how many units. Also didn't help that at the time the project should have already been approved, the then president was a known chink bootlicker and did everything he could to stall every military modernization project to appease the chinks.
