Armoured Vehicles Asia Conference 2015

Taking place in Jakarta, Indonesia in partnership with PT Pindad, the Armoured Vehicles Asia conference invites you to join regional military officials and manufacturing partners at a series of lectures, round table discussions and working groups designed to strengthen existing and to create new international partnerships for armoured vehicle stakeholders.

If you are active in the region or looking for that first project to contribute your solution to, this forum will provide you with access to the information and contacts that you need to deliver your offering.


Why Indonesia?

  • Indonesia has increased its defense budget over the past 5 years from $3.2 billion in 2007 to $8.1 billion in 2013
  • Indonesia is in the throes of a rapid transformation, swept along by its position at the heart of the world’s most dynamic economic region
  • The country has recorded one of the most consistent growth rates among global economies during the past decade with nearly 6 percent annual GDP growth (McKinsey SEA Report)

Why Attend?

With investment ever increasing in the Asia-Pacific region, the 8th Annual Armoured Vehicles Asia conference will create a high-level platform to address these challenges, including:

  • Armour requirements and procurement processes
  • Enhancing Survivability and Protection
  • Improving Vehicle Mobility and Firepower
  • Integrating C4I Networks and Systems into Armoured Vehicles
  • Capability development for armoured vehicles to improve overall mission effectiveness
  • Providing operational case studies and experiences of armoured vehicles in battlefield operations

Armoured Vehicles Asia 2015 is part of our highly successful International Armoured Vehicles Series, dedicated and specially contextualised to the region. Our event offers the perfect platform for high-level, senior key decision makers from the military to interact and meet with international counterparts and industry stakeholders.

Indonesia and Armoured Vehicles

Indonesia plans to buy 420 Terrex 8x8 AIFVs under license from Singapore’s ST Kinetics. In November it finalised a deal to procure 102 modernised Leopard 2 MBTs, 42 upgraded Marder 1A3 IFVs and 11 armoured recovery vehicles from Rheinmetall in a €216m ($290m) deal, which includes logistical support. The deal makes Indonesia the 18th nation operating the Leopard 2. Indonesia’s locally-built armoured personnel carrier, the 6x6 Anoa, has had a number of export enquiries since it was produced in 2009 from Malaysia, Iraq, Nepal, Oman and Bangladesh
