The aviation component of the Indonesian Army, the TNI-AD, is receiving, like the two other armed services, a number of Nurtanio-assembled BO 105 helicopters, such as that seen here equipped with rocket pods. The first export customer for BO 105s from the Nurtanio line is the Royal Malaysian Air Force which has ordered 10-12 helicopters of this type. Late this year, a start will be made on the licence manufacturing programme of the AS 332 Super Puma 21-seat medium transport helicopter, and the Nurtanio product line will be still further broadened with the 35-seat CN-235 transport now undergoing design definition as a collaborative venture with CASA. Plans also exist for a 70-seat transport.
The NU-225 Sikumbang flown in September 1957. This retained little more than a configurational resemblance to the original NU-200.
The NU-85 Belalang, the prototype conversion of a Piper L-4J Cub as a low-wing primary trainer.
The LT-200 was a programme launched by LIPNUR in 1973, but this was overtaken by the absorption of LIPNUR into the new Nurtanio Aircraft Industry Limited, and planned series production was shelved in order that the new organisation could concentrate on the BO 105 and C-212 programmes.
The NU-25 Kunang ultralight monoplane, which, like the Belalang, commenced flight testing in 1958.
The NU-35 (Super Kunang Model 35) single-seat lightplane, the developed version of the Kunang with uprated engine (36 hp Volkswagen) and design refinements
