PT Pindad is willing to have a strategic partnership with Nexter as a global known company with high quality products and that has a complete portfolio of medium to large caliber ammunitions that meet with the needs of the Indonesian Armed Forces”.

Dominique Guillet, Nexter Executive Vice President Weapon and Ammunition said: “As a European leader in medium and large ammunition, Nexter is committed to establish long-term partnerships with the Indonesian industry to enhance Indonesia’s local high-tech industrial content. Our cooperation with Indonesia’s largest land defence systems company PT Pindad for the complete range of 120 mm ammunition is a perfect illustration of this ambition and we proud of this new success.”

The agreement between Nexter and the Indonesian state-owned enterprise, PT Pindad, will cover a complete range of 120 mm tank ammunition, including SHARD APFSDS, High Explosive, and training rounds. The agreement will also strengthen the Indonesian industry’s capabilities by enabling local manufacturing of large-caliber tank ammunition in Indonesia.
