Türkiye signed a contract on the serial production of the Altay main battle tank (MBT), the Turkish Defence Industry Agency (SSB) announced on 29 May. The agency said on its website that the Altay project would meet the modern tank requirements of the Turkish Land Forces and would acquire technology for the design, production, and testing of tanks and their subsystems in Türkiye.
The SSB set out the scope of the project – establishment of a serial production line, the supply of subsystems for the tank and domestic development of those of foreign origin, development of parts that are different from those of the tanks produced during the initial period, preparations for the production of the first tanks, and supply of the powerpack.
“We are moving to serial production of the Altay tank,” SSB president Haluk Görgün told public broadcaster TRT Haber on 29 May. “There are countries that want to work with us on this internationally, and we are continuing our negotiations with them.”

"4 production lines and 4MBT per month" I remember it somewhere from television. I might be wrong.
4-5 Altay tanks per month between 2025-2030. Eventually, it's planned to reach 8 tanks per month, or 100 Altay tanks for each calender year. 30 of these tanks will be intended for exports on a yearly basis.
