Indonesia sought and obtained approval for the purchase of 103 used Leopard 2A4 tanks from Bundeswehr stocks, along with 4 Büffel ARV (Bergepanzer), 3 Leguan AVLB bridge-laying tanks (Brückenlegepanzer) and 3 Kodiak AEV (Pionierpanzer). About 61 of Leopard 2A4 will be upgraded to Leopard 2RI Revolution standard by Rheinmetall. 

The used Leopard 2s have been modified to suit Indonesia’s tropical climate, therefore the Tanks are internally named Leopard 2RI (RI referring to “Republic of Indonesia”).

According to the schedule Rheinmetall send all orders of the  Indonesia army, in the fourth quarter 2016.
