MOSCOW, November 12 (RIA Novosti) - Rosoboronexport has signed deals to sell six Su-30 Flanker-C jet fighters and 18 BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles to Indonesia, an official at Russia's arms export monopoly said on Wednesday.
Nikolai Dimidyuk, Rosoboronexport's special programs director, said Indonesia could also buy other Russian warplanes as well as Mi-17 and Mi-35 helicopters.
"Indonesia is still very interested in Russian fixed- and rotary-winged aircraft," he said.
He expressed confidence the Russian Finance Ministry would soon approve a $1 billion loan for Indonesia.
"We are sure that this loan will be used to buy arms," Dimidyuk said.
He added that Indonesia had asked Russia to modernize its Soviet-era weapons and equipment.
"All of their Soviet-made weapons are obsolete," he said.
