The reasons for submarine acquisition in Indonesia are explored against the general strategic context in Southeast Asia and the countryâ€™s unique approach to the challenges it identifes is demonstrated, not least through the concept of Indonesia as a Global Maritime Fulcrum. The contribution that submarines are thought to make to Indonesiaâ€™s security is discussed and the technological, economic and demographic problems their acquisition poses are identifed.
