Indonesian aerospace company PT Dirgantara Indonesia (Persero) officials have said an Indonesian Navy (TNI-AL) naval aviation unit is replacing up to 20 of its ageing twin-engine turboprop ASTA/GAF Nomad maritime patrol aircraft with Persero's N219 platform.

Speaking to IHS Jane's on 12 February at the Singapore Airshow, Persero spokesperson Teguh Graito said that the Indonesian government plans to replace between 15-20 Nomads from the Skuadron Udara 800 unit with the N219s. Senior TNI-AL officials have approached the company to discuss the acquisition but details such as quantity and configuration have yet to be finalised.

The TNI-AL's Skuadron 800 unit is in charge of conducting airborne maritime patrol duties for the country and has been operating the Nomad since 1975.
