FNSS to supply anti-tank vehicles to Turkey
FNSS Savunma Sistemleri is to supply anti-tank vehicles to the Turkish Ministry of Defence under a contract signed on 27 June.
The vehicles will be supplied for Turkey’s Anti-Tank Vehicle Project, which will involve the integration of Turkish anti-tank missiles with armoured vehicles equipped with anti-tank turrets developed specifically for the project.
The contract covers the delivery of 260 vehicles in tracked and wheeled configurations. The turrets will be developed with modern fire and command and control capabilities, and the turret will be equipped with a 7.62 machine gun in addition to ready-to-fire anti-tank guided missiles.
The vehicles will be ballistic and mine protected, capable of conducting joint operations with armoured units, and will have a modular mechanical and electronic infrastructure that enables rapid adaptation of future potential requirements.
Design, development and prototype qualification processes will be completed in 2018, with serial production and delivery of the vehicles to be completed in 2020.
