After successes in rifle development, Pindad began to manufacture armored vehicles and launched the Anoa in 2008. The 6x6 armored personnel carrier is an upgraded version of the French Véhicule de l'Avant Blindé (VAB), which was used by the Indonesian army.
In 2011, it launched the 4x4 armored personnel carrier Komodo, with around 80 percent of the components made locally. This gave the company confidence to build more complex military vehicles, like a medium battle tank.
"We are looking to launch our medium tank in 2017. We are developing it with FNSS Savunma Sistemleri Turkey since 2013. Currently, it is in the prototype phase," former Pindad CEO Silmy Karim said, adding that the company was also considering to build a civil version as the “Indonesian Humvee”.
