Indonesia to get new air force jets

4:48 pm on 7 February 2014

The Indonesian Air Force is to acquire new jet fighters to establish a new squadron in eastern Indonesia.

The Jakarta Post reports it will be the country's easternmost air combat unit.

But it is not clear just where it will be sited.

A squadron of Russian heavy fighter jets based in just outside Makassar in South Sulawesi is the country's easternmost fighter squadron.
