    • Description:
      • The country of the Republic of Indonesia is a massive country located in Southeast Asia. Indonesia is a powerhouse of economic development due to it being a G20 member, and recently classified as a newly industrialized country as well as having the 4th largest population in the world at 275 million people. According to Global Firepower, the Indonesian military as a whole is ranked 15th in the world, with 400,000 active duty personnel and over 2,000 land-based vehicles to assert it’s security and sovereignty. The current budget of the military sits around $9.3 billion, allowing Indonesia to meet it’s own security needs. Indonesia has a newly developing arms industry such as PT Pindad, that is able to develop indigenous vehicles and new technology that is able to compete with modern technology of developed arms industries. Indonesia’s arms industry is rapidly modernizing due to its partnerships with established companies such as Turkey’s FNSS, France’s Renault or MBDA, or Belgium’s John Cockerill which allows them to share some specifics on technology. Due to this, Indonesia has developed several unique vehicles ranging from the Harimau Medium Tank to the smaller Komodo 4x4, which would have a unique place in the game War Thunder.

Tree layout, note there are some gaps in Rank I and Rank V that can be addressed in future updates.

  • One of the issues with the Indonesian Sub-tree is the beginning 3 ranks and rank 5. This is due to the Indonesian utilizing vehicles from other countries like the US, the USSR, and France. The issue is that there would be some copy and paste, however, if combined with a tree that already utilizes the vehicles, then the only thing to do is add Indonesian military camouflage to those vehicles that exist in the tree already.
  • The location of this sub-tree is up for debate. The Indonesian military draws a lot of their vehicles from France, and Germany, with newer vehicles developed in coordination with Turkey’s FNSS as well as Belgium’s John Cockerill. There is a lot of different options for this Sub-tree. One option is that this sub-tree could also be used to amplify potential ground tree’s such as an ASEAN tree of Turkish tree. The closest however would most likely be with Turkey due to their continuing development of armored vehicles with many more to come. To summarize, this sub-tree would be best to be implemented in support of a minor nation to provide more vehicles to use as well as draw on future potential since more vehicles are being developed. Please comment below on where you think this tree should go!

  • Basic Description:
    • The Komodo Mistral ATLAS is a VSHORAD vehicle developed between PT PINDAD and MBDA of France. The Komodo 4x4 platform itself, developed by Indonesia is loosely based on the French Renault Sherpa vehicle. The Komodo 4x4 was designed to meet local requirements by being well protected, cheap, and modular, allowing multiple weapon platforms to be equipped suiting the needs of the Indonesian Army or export customers. In this case, the Indonesian Army equipped the Komodo 4x4 with the MBDA Mistral ATLAS platform, a dual Mistral launcher with enhanced electronics allowing the operator to target aircraft, drones, or helicopters up to 7.5km depending on the type of Mistral missile used. The platform requires the gunner to be seated on the missile launcher, exposing the gunner to enemy fire. The Mistral ATLAS can receive targeting data from Mistral Co-ordination Posts (MCP) which featuring a search RADAR to target incoming threats or fire independently through 3rd-generation electro-optical sighting equipment located on the ATLAS launcher. The Komodo Mistral ATLAS is currently in use with the Indonesian Army with over a 100 Komodo 4x4’s of different variants in service.

      • STANAG 4569 Level 3
  • In-game:
    • The Komodo ATLAS Mistral features the powerful Mistral 3 anti-aircraft missile that is capable of 7.5km of range. Its capabilities allow excellent tracking to eliminate anything from helicopters to aircraft without being detected utilizing its optical sight. The main drawback is its gunner is exposed to enemy fire which will require the player to stay completely out of sight unless trying to capture a point quickly. Having a crew of 4 however, will allow players to make a comeback if there gunner is killed.
    • Due to its capabilities (powerful missile, maneuverability, and over-exposed gunner), it would sit around Battle Rating 9.0.

AMX-13/Yonkav 2 LT



Yonkav 2 featuring enhanced armor.

  • Basic Description:
    • The Yonkav 2, also known as the AMX-13 Refit is a light tank originating from France that has been upgraded by the Indonesian Defense Industry. The Yonkav 2 underwent two modernizations, one in 1995 featuring a new Detroit Diesel engine and Automatic Transmission, and the Dunlostrut Suspension to increase off-road performance. Another modernization was conducted in 2014 which added a newer 320hp diesel engine by Navistar (which required the hull to be extended), improved armor on the LFP, and UFP, as well as addon armor for the turret in urban operations. Another part of this upgrade included a new Fire Control System featuring 3rd-generation thermal viewers, new 105mm main gun, and a thermal imager/FLIR camera for the driver. The new FCS is designed to further offset the aiming of the unstabilized main gun. The idea of this upgrade was to prolong the life of the Yonkav 2 until newer vehicles such as the Harimau MT are produced in quantity. The Yonkav 2 is still in use by the Indonesian Army and around 250 different models of AMX-13 remain in serivce.
    • For this suggestion, this version of the Yonkav 2 is the 2014 refit.
  • Specifications:
    • Role: Light Tank
    • Origin/Manufacturer: France/Indonesia - Multiple
    • Armament:
      • Primary: 105mm Smoothbore Gun
      • Note: A replacement gun was provided during the 2014 refit, unknown if its the same model of gun or new production.
        • Ammunition:
          • APFSDS-T
          • HEAT-T
          • HE-T
        • Feed System:
          • Autoloader
      • Coaxial: 7.62x51mm Machine Gun
      • Roof Mount: 7.62x51mm Machine Gun
    • Dimensions:
      • Length: ~6.50-6.55m
      • Width: 2.51m
      • Height: 2.35m
      • Weight: 15-16t
    • Mobility:
      • Engine: 320hp - Navistar Diesel Engine

    • Armor:
      • Unknown values of urban armor kit.
      • Unknown values of UFP/LFP post-modernization.
    • 6x 76mm Smoke Grenades
  • In-game:
    • The Yonkav 2 would be the epitome of the AMX-13 series vehicles found in-game. Featuring new armor, thermal imagery, enhanced FCS for more accurate shots, this vehicle would be a quick shoot-n-scoot vehicle capable of scouting and capturing ahead of the main group. This vehicle would still suffer from the same fate of all oscillating turreted vehicles, an unstabilized gun/turret uncapable of firing effectively on the move.
    • Due to the capabilities of this vehicle, it would best sit around Battle Rating 8.7.

PT-76(M) LT



A PT-76(M) during maintenance.

  • Description:
    • The PT-76(M) is an Indonesian upgrade to the Soviet PT-76 that were acquired in 1962 alongside the BTR-50. In the 1990’s, Indonesia upgraded there PT-76’s to the designation PT-76(M) featuring several upgrades including a new Cockerill 90mm MKIII Low-pressure Gun, new Detroit Diesel Engine coupled to the original transmission, several fire control modifications, as well as other upgrades that bring the PT-76 to modern levels. These new PT-76(M)'s were used in service with the Indonesian Marine Corp, conducting amphibious operations during the Insurgency of Aceh in the early 2000’s and continue to serve today. In 2020, another upgrade program was initiated with Ukraine through Ukrspetsexport which includes an APS system, a new Cummins Diesel Engine, and the possible inclusion of the Falarick 90 GL-ATGM. Modifications will have to be made to the gun due to the muzzle brake preventing certain ammunition from being fired such as APFSDS-T. It is unknown if the upgrades took place or are delayed due to recent events.

    • Amphibious
  • In-game:
    • The PT-76(M) is an excellent light tank of the Indonesian Marines. Capable of amphibious operations as well as a more powerful gun than the standard PT-76’s, this vehicle would excel at water based maps and flatter terrain. However, with its light armor and lack of smoke grenades, players will have to plan their shots accordingly.
    • Based on its capabilities, it would most likely be best suited around the Battle Rating 6.3-6.7.

M4A3(75)W Sherman MT



M4A3(75)W Sherman’s of the KKO Tank Battalion.

  • Basic Description:
    • The M4A3(75)W Sherman is a development of the M4 Sherman used during WWII as well as Post-War engagements. The M4A3(75)W Sherman’s in Indonesia were originally used by the British before being turned over to the Dutch. After Indonesia declared Independence on August 17th, 1945, the Dutch used them against Indonesian Independence Forces until the Netherlands recognized the Independence of Indonesia in 1949 after 4 years of intense warfare. Following negotiations, the Netherlands donated the M4A3(75)W’s to the newly formed Indonesian Army. The M4A3(75)W Sherman’s were seen in use into the early 1960’s with the inauguration of the KKO Tank Battalion of the Indonesian Marine Corps, back then the Korps Komando (KKO).
    • This vehicle is not in-game however, it is a combination of the M4A2(75) turret and the hull of the M4A3(76)W with shared values in-game.

+1, ideally I’d love to see an ASEAN tree, and of course Indonesia would provide quite a strong core for such a prospect.
