  1. Wouldn't you know, there is a rumour that our MoD might gonna cancel Su-35 in exchange for F-35A, and probably some F-16V to complement the F-16A/B MLU and F-16C/D Block 25. Possibly because US does not want to lose allies in South East Asia. And probably because they're worried we're going to possess threat to Australia if we got those Su-35s. The only saving grace for Eurofighters in Indonesia, as far as we concerned, is that we got Airbus as our partners at Indonesian Aerospace. But the memory of previous embargo from UK still lingers, apparently.
  2. HAHAHAHAHAHA... ... Ha. Ha. I might gonna get 'unpersoned' soon.
  3. We have not. Just as we don't have money to stop COVID-19 from killing everyone.
  4. Deleted- read the pinned post in chat regarding swearing
  5. Seems so. I think the procurement teams for AW101 were investigated by Corruption Eradication Committee (yes, there is such things as that here, such is the corruption within the government since the day of the murderer--I mean Harto). So... no other news as of yet.
  6. Oh we actually ordered 2 Merlins. Much to the chagrin of indonesian Aerospace who builds Super Puma with licenses from Airbus.
  7. Locals here, I think Indonesian Armed Forces wanted something that is a good compromise between Cougar's VTOL capability (being helicopter and all) and CN-235's payload. Kind of neccessary considering the terrain here. Accessibility to remote islands and capability of carrying good amount of essential cargos for locals are very important for us. And they probably saw that good compromise in the MV-22B. Although I don't know if we have enough capabilities to actually maintain one.
  8. Another F-14B is good and all, but VF-103? AGAIN?! And the only bonus is a patch? Where's VF-32 OIF bird, VF-41 OEF A-bombcat or VF-14 80th Anniversary scheme A-Tomcat?
  9. Academy's F-8 Crusaders are one of those kits that needs no introduction. Easily the best Crusader kits out there, on par with Hasegawa's 1/48th kit (similar breakdown, surprisingly). Really happy to see how nice you pulled it off, makes me want to add another F-8E alongside Richard Bellinger's MiG killer of VF-162.
  10. Still waiting for some companies doing VF-32 OIF cruise. Academy, if you're listening, you got all the equipments for F-14B Bombcats, you know what to do.
  11. I currently got Hase's F-14B/D Low-vis boxing and is looking forward to get Hobby Boss F-14D just so I can use the hi-vis VF-2 OIF scheme on Hase's kit, while possibly doing the low-vis one on HB. Should be interesting...
  12. Hmmmm quite pricey at first, but considering you can make pretty much every single kind of F-14s out there (probably, I haven't seen the full extent other than parts for late A/B/D cats), and you got choices of weapons, I think that's a fair price to pay.
  13. Considering FM's F-14A doesn't come with weapons or upgrade parts for later blocks, i.e. Bombcats, I'd still go for Academy. Or Hasegawa. But Hase is equally stingy for weapons. But for those who wants a higher detail, i.e. open radome etc., FineMolds should be the answer they need.
  14. Other than the refuelling probe doors, all things necessary are packed. Maybe except MIM-23 Hawk but that's another can of worms to open.
  15. I seconded that. Been looking for VF-2 farewell scheme in 1/72nd scale. To no avail.
