    Tumosan a Turkish Tractor manufacturer is responsible for designing an indigenous engine for the Altay. The first 250 Altay tanks are expected to use german MTU motors, there are some rumors that motors may be acquired from Ukraine to allow for easier export of the system. When Turkey attempted to export the T-155 (155mm SPH) to Azerbaijan the deal was blocked by Germany who was supplying the engine, eventually a Ukrainian motor was used and the deal went through.

    Sorry it is AKKOR not Korkut. Korkut is an SPAAG.


    A $54 million deal was signed between Aselsan and Turkey's Undersecretariat for Defence Industry for the AKKOR Active Protection System. The System will be delivered to Turkey's Undersecretariat for Defence Industry in 2020. It will be mounted on Turkey's main battle tank the Altay as well as other vehicles.

    New video of the Altay



    @Falcon @Admin Please post on your social media, this is a big one.

    The Altay will also be able to fire an 8km range Anti Tank Missile from its gun according to reliable sources.
