Oldest of the services, as per TheOtherWiki the Army - in its beginnings made up of both pro-Japan militias and the anti-Japanese resistance fighters - is also the biggest and has the lion's share of the defense budget and modern equipment. Has 13 territorial divisional commands plus the Strategic Reserve Corps, the Kopassus, the Women's Army Corps and the Army Air Service. Several of these commands trace their lineage and battle honors to the National Revolution years.

* They own several French AMX light tanks, as main battle tanks aren't suitable for the Indonesian streets... Or so they think. Indonesian buildings aren't very tough, you see. They also operate BTR-80 and BTR-50 armored personnel carriers and V-150 Commando and M113 IFVs. Early Cold War-era British armored cars also appear occassionally. Land Rover Defenders and Singapore's Flyer are used by both the police and the army, sometimes mounted with anti-aircraft guns or Singapore's CIS automatic grenade launchers. The South African Casspir is used by the police. Also, the older BTR APCs are very very rickety: some of them sank during amphibious assault trainings. As for the local ones, Pindad also has started producing the Pindad Panser (meaning armored car), a rather plain looking APC, but that wouldn't be necessarily bad if Indonesia's equipments didn't have the nasty tendency to fall apart at the worst possible moment. Some BMP-2 and PT-76 are in use by the marine corps, as well as a small number of BMP-3. They have also made several anti-riot vehicles. Recently, some Leopard 2 tanks alongside Marder IFV have been purchased from the Netherlands, plus the nationally produced Pindad Panser Anoa APC series.

** Recently, TNI AD has purchased MBT, specifically Leopards. The decision is questioned as Indonesia has limited use of it because Indonesian Terrain doesn't support it: Java has to many open terrain but primary staple is rice which is planted on muddy rice paddies, so open terrain is muddy; elsewhere either has limited open terrain or mountainous.


Added DiffLines:

** Indonesia has a rare record of few nations which their F-16-s have accidents. Embarassingly, this happened 5 times in 3 decades.

Aside from doing things the government isn't comfortable to admit in Timor Leste, Malaysia and Aceh, they've also participated in the UNPROFOR. They also have a marine corps, which is attached to the Navy. They're pretty well-equipped, operating BTR-80 AP Cs, the BMP-3 IFV and PT-76 amphibious tanks, however they're relatively unheard of compared to the other branches.

* The police force is called Polri (Polisi Republik Indonesia). Regional units are called Polda (Polisi Daerah). They're quite prone to human right abuses such as torturing prisoners and extracting informations at gunpoint. Indonesian detention facilities are generally not very nice, with drug circulation, low ventilation, bad hygiene and beating everywhere. Except if you happen to be a rich corruptor, in which case you can get a hidden air conditioned room with luxurious facilities, and occasionally porn [=DVDs=]...hell, sometimes you can even get the real thing. Formerly a part of the Armed Forces, today the POLRI is a directly reporting agency of the Ministry of Home Affairs.

** The fact that Suharto would later become a dictator who served for 31 years in the presidential office is the OldShame of the unit, especially veterans who served under him when he was the founding commanding general from 1962 to 1965, when he was promoted to Chief of the Army after distinguishing himself in the events of the 30 September Movement attempted coup that very same year in the capital area.

* Indonesian armed forces are the player's opponent in ''AV-8B Harrier Assault'' game, a combination of combat flight simulator and RTS. The game has a hypothetical conflict scenario with a US Navy taskforce trying to liberate the East Timor island from Indonesian military presence.
