Pars 6x6 on track for delivery to TAF in 2021

20th July 2020 - 16:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


FNSS has completed first assembly of the Pars III 6×6 wheeled armoured vehicle destined for the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF).

Ismail Demir, president of Turkish Defence Industries-SSB, said that qualification tests of the vehicle are ongoing and will continue until the end of 2020.

Pars 6x6 will then be delivered to the TAF in 2021, he declared, adding that the platform ‘has a high export potential’.

Most of the vehicle components and subsystems are sourced domestically; Demir said that FNSS and Turkish industry in general is intent on overcoming ‘all kinds of restrictions and obstacles with domestic production’.

As noted by Shephard Defence Insight, Pars III 6x6 is being marketed in various configurations including APC, IFV, command, ambulance, and CBRN. A total of 45 vehicles are on order for the TAF.
