Indonesia's military force is called the TNI (Tentara Nasional Indonesia, Indonesia National Army). The branches are TNI Angkatan Darat (Army), TNI Angkatan Laut (Navy) and TNI Angkatan Udara (Air Force). They have several spec ops groups, most notably Kopassus (Komando Pasukan Khusus). The spec ops units are notorious for friendly fire incidents in Timor Leste, friendly fire incidents in Aceh, friendly fire incidents during training [[note]] Just kidding, but it's more likely than you'd like to believe.[[/note]], atrocities against Malaysian civilians, atrocities against East Timorese civilians, atrocities against Acehnese civilians, and probably shooting protesting college students. Indonesian equipments boast very high reliability, and in some cases, abilities not present in their foreign counterparts. For example, during several trainings in the 80s (or is it the 90s?), several APCs were able to dive underwater for a very long stretch of time.

* 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.

* In the original game in the ''Delta Force'' series, one of the campaigns has Delta Force working to prevent a terroist group from overthrowing the Indonesian government. Most actions that the Indonesian own military takes part in happen off-screen, but there is one mission where the Army does make an appearance as allies to the player. In that mission the objective is for Delta Force and the Indonesians to work together to prevent the assassination of the President of Indonesia by making sure his limo survives a terrorist ambush.

* The standard service rifle is the [=SS1=] (Senapan Serbu = assault rifle), a licensed copy of the Belgian FN FNC carbine made by the government corporation (BUMN) PT Pindad. HK G3, M16 and 5.45 mm AK variants are also used, the latter oddly enough are more often seen in the hand of cops guarding [=ATMs=] while they're being filled. The spec ops units often use M4, HK G36 and Steyr-Mannlicher AUG. Recently, PT Pindad started manufacturing an assault rifle called the [=SS2=], which looks like an M16 with AK gas block, reversed front sight and slightly different detachable carrying handle (Indonesians aren't big on originality).

The M16 is still the most widespread assault rifles in use. The spec ops units often use M4, HK G36 and G36, Steyr-Mannlicher AUG. AUG, and HK 416. There are also some Galil assault rifles in use, though it seems nobody will admit where they came from. Recently, PT Pindad started manufacturing an assault rifle called the [=SS2=], which looks like an M16 with AK gas block, block (despite the looks, it is actually a heavily modified FNC design rather than M16), reversed front sight and slightly different detachable carrying handle (Indonesians aren't big on originality).



* 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 AP Cs and V-150 Commando 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. They have also made several anti-riot vehicles.

Recently, some Leopard 2 tanks alongside Marder IFV have been purchased from the Netherlands.

* As for sniper rifles, they mostly use the Remington 700, HK [=G3SG1=] and the much-hated Galil-Galatz. [[hottip:*: (Where did they get it from? Let's not talk about that.)]] The special forces also use the PGM Hecate II, a .50 caliber French bolt-action rifle.

* 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=].
