Possible. This thing crab walks. Doubt it's cheap and can be offered to other African countries. It's a dedicated scout platform, needs a big army to work with. As far as I know, no interest has been shown by Turkey so far.
Agreed, no need for heavy mbts in Africa.Tanks are much more expensive and bad for the African terrain.
As African countries grow their economies they will also grow their militaries.
These platforms are perfect for such terrains. There has been numerous footage of boko haram and other insurgent terrorists or rebels or easily taking down tanks with ease.
These platforms, armoured and mobile will prove effective over ifvs, apcs and tanks.
actually it was mentioned that it is the Russian made 30mm gun, which means a real customer ordered it, which could be anybodyIt is a light vehicle that carries a lot of firepower. Unfortunately, we don't have any alternative other than the Cockerill turret. Cockerill is very light and suitable for platforms that have weight limitations.
Anyone that can explain the history of Turkish armored vehicles, and perhaps the history of the main producers in the industry?
For M48 tanks MKE produce 105 mm M68 T1 gun is it an alternative for 90 mm as a firepower ? Also making low weight turret with 105 mm is it possible especially an unmanned one with auto loader?It is a light vehicle that carries a lot of firepower. Unfortunately, we don't have any alternative other than the Cockerill turret. Cockerill is very light and suitable for platforms that have weight limitations.
The companies' products will be weighed both technically and in terms of their after-sales services and the financial options that can be created for the purchase. I think this could be a very valuable tender, because it could mean that their products will be evaluated by an independent organization. Although, I don't sure how close Estonia is politically to which center, which vehicles have what kind of foreign subsystems, maybe I could be wrong.
After all, from the outside, the fact that only Turkish companies have made it to the short list is a serious message to Europe, showing that we are a giant in land vehicles.
