CANBERRA, Australia, July 26 (UPI) -- Indonesia is purchasing five C-130H aircraft and associated equipment from Australia, Australian Minister of Defense Stephen Smith announced.

The Memorandum of Sale was signed Friday in Perth.

"During my visit to Jakarta in April this year, I confirmed that the Australian government was willing to sell five C-130H aircraft, along with a simulator and spare parts, to Indonesia at a discounted rate," Smith said in a news announcement. "This offer was in addition to the four C-130H aircraft that Australia is currently in the process of transferring to Indonesia following discussions between our respective leaders in November 2011.

"The sale of a further five C-130H transport aircraft will further enhance Indonesia's capacity to respond to natural disasters and humanitarian crisis."

The monetary value of the C-130H sale, the delivery schedule for the aircraft and other details of the memorandum of sale were not disclosed.
