Alexander Ivanov said representatives of the Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport and the Indonesian Defense Ministry signed a $40 mln contract on Monday for the delivery of a consignment of BMP-3F infantry fighting vehicles. A Rosoboronexport spokesman said the delivery would be made in 2010.

The new IFVs will replace the PT-76 vehicles that are currently in service with the Indonesian armed forces. The BMP-3F is specially designed for operations at sea, with improved seaworthiness and buoyancy, and high fire accuracy. It can endure continuous amphibious operation for seven hours.

The vehicle is capable of engaging targets at a range of up to 5,000-6,000 meters with its antitank guided missile system 9K116-3 Basnya. (rian.ru)
