POWER INDEX SCORE

39.0

(Ranked 23 of 53)
*See Notes
Like other regional Asia-Pacific players, the Indonesian Air Force aims to strike a balance. 29% is committed to the fighter fleet of which the group if made up of foreign types emerging from the United States, Britain, South Korea, and Russia. The rotorcraft force accounts for 10% of all strength and consists of many French-originated designs led by the SA330 transport series. The fixed-wing transport force has arund 46 aircraft, making up 17% of all strength, and looks to fulfill tactical and utility/VIP roles as needed. The training arm is the service's largest commitment with 100 aircraft making up the group, these accounting for 37% of all strength. On-order systems look to bolster fighter, rotorcraft, transport, and training capabilities for the near-future.
NOTES: The WDMMA.org Power Index (PwrIndx) score looks at various qualities of an individual air power (or service branch). While total aircraft certainly influences the rating, aircraft variety (force balance) also plays a key role in determining an air service's placement on the list. Other focused qualities include local industry (aerospace-related) capability, future outlook, and current/recent combat experience. All this is worked into a formula which provides an analytical approach to resolving a force's fighting state in the modern world. This approach to fighting strength is highly theoretical and does not take into account a nation's available manpower or resolve in the face of conflict nor does it involve land and naval fighting strength. The top achievable PwrIndx score belongs to the United States Air Force with its rating of 242.9. As of now, UAV systems are not taken into account due to reporting differences between publicly-available sources (these will be integrated as some point). Navy aviation branches do not take into account the fighting capacity of naval ships.
