    Turkey signs deal for 260 new generation anti-tank vehicles


    The Undersecretary of Defense Industry (SSM) has signed an agreement with Turkey FNSS Defense Systems for the local development and the production of 260 new generation anti-tank vehicles, Anadolu Agency reported June 28.

    In line with a deal signed between the parties on June 27, the anti-tank missiles, which are developed domestically for the Turkish Land Force Command’s arsenal, will be integrated into armored vehicles with anti-tank towers that will be specially designed to increase their combat capacity.

    According to a statement by the SSM, the development and the prototype qualifications of the project will be completed by 2018, and the vehicles will be delivered to the Turkish Land Force Command by 2020 as examples of “locally made and indigenously developed systems.”

    They did not say which vehicle but most likely it is the Kaplan Weapons Carrier, a prototype was displayed several years ago.
