Earlier, President of Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation Yuri Slyusar said that Russia might start to deliver Be-200ChS amphibious planes to Indonesia.

"Technical consultations on the delivery of Be-200 planes are in progress with the Indonesian Air Force," said Brakunov, who is heading the company’s delegation at the exhibition.

The Be-200ChS amphibious has been heavily upgraded during its productionizing, based on its operational record and in line with extra requirements by the customers. Its avionics suite has been updated, its airframe design has been modified and Russian-made systems have been substituted for some of the imported ones.

The Beriev Be-200 "Altair" is a multipurpose amphibious aircraft designed by the Beriev Aircraft Company and manufactured by Irkut. The multirole Be-200 can be configured as an amphibious water drop fire-fighting aircraft, a freighter, or as a passenger aircraft—the pressurised and air conditioned cabin allowing transportation of up to 72 passengers.

The Be-200 can also be equipped for special missions. Four retractable water scoops, two forward and two aft of the fuselage step can be used to scoop a total of 12 tonnes of water in 14 seconds. It is powered by two Progress D-436TP turbofans, with 7,500 kgf (16,534 lbf) each.

The Defense & Security 2017 international exhibition began on November 6 in Bangkok and will last through November 9. It has been held under the patronage of the government and the Defense Ministry of Thailand since 1985, traditionally bringing together major producers and customers of military hardware for the Army and the Navy, aircraft and air defense systems.
