Indonesia will have a tank force rivaling Australia's by 2017.

Indonesia has taken delivery of 24 of the 61 Leopard 2 RI (Republic of Indonesia) main battle tanks (MBTs) ordered from Rheinmetall Defence in December 2012, sources told IHS Jane's on 8 September.

The balance of 37 MBTs would be delivered in two tranches, concluding in March 2017, the sources added.
Question.  Will Indonesia end up with a more powerful tank force than Australia?  It will matter on how you rank the tanks, but numerically they're about equal...or will be in March 2017.
