Turkey expects to equip its army with new Kaplan-10 and PARS 4x4 anti-tank vehicles by 2022, as it moves to improve the mobility and the lethality of its ground forces.

These platforms were procured in June 2016 under a contract with manufacturer FNSS that includes 260 vehicles (184 Kaplan-10s and 76 PARS 4x4s), as well as their turrets.

The Turkish Land Forces Command announced via Twitter that mass production of Kaplan-10 began in late March. FNSS confirmed to Shephard that a total of eight vehicles have already been handed over to the Turkish Land Forces.
