The Badak, which means rhinoceros in Indonesian, is a modification of Pindad’s previous light-armored vehicle, the Anoa, which was also named after a native species from Sulawesi.
 

The product is a joint venture between Pindad and the Belgium-based Cockerill Maintenance & Ingenierie SA Defence (CMI). The Badaks will be fitted with a locally-built Cockerill CSE-90LP turret 90mm cannon developed by the Belgian Company CMI Defence. Pindad has sent several employees to Belgium to learn the technology.

The vehicle was shown to the public for the first time in November 2014 during the Indo Defense exhibition. Currently, the Badak has passed several required tests and is now ready for purchase.

Silmy said that the price for a Badak would be Rp 30 billion per unit, which was cheaper than a South Korean-made light-armored vehicle named Tarantula, previously purchased by Indonesia for Rp 35 billion per unit. Besides preparing the Badak for the Army, Pindad is also busy producing other kinds of light-armored vehicles, namely the Anoa and Komodo, as well as ammunitions and weapons needed by TNI.
 
He added that several countries in the Middle East, Africa and Asia were also interested in buying Anoa vehicles.
