Wheeled and Tracked Vehicles and Turret Systems on Show
Otokar, a Koc Group company, will exhibit a wide range of military vehicles and turret systems during LAAD 2019 in Rio de Janeiro this week – designs in use with some 55 operators across five continents.
“Otokar continues to strengthen its position in the international defence industry with its technological superiority, engineering power, design capabilities and over 30 years of experience in military vehicles. Today, more than 30,000 military vehicles designed to meet user expectations and needs against present day and future threats are actively used in several different missions in various regions. We aim to increase our presence in Latin America and [the] LAAD exhibition is a good opportunity for us to get together with our potential clients,” commented the company’s General Manager, Serdar Görgüç. “We have been able to gain significant experience about responding to the needs and expectations of this region through the military vehicles currently serving here. In addition to promoting our wide product range during the exhibition, we will also look for opportunities to establish industrial cooperation to localise the support of Otokar vehicles in the region. We are also willing to evaluate transfer of technology and local manufacturing projects where Otokar has a well-established and proven track record.”
Wheeled Armoured Vehicles
The company designs and manufactures a wide range of tactical armoured vehicles, including the 4×4 URAL, COBRA, COBRA II, KAYA II, ISV, ARMA 6×6 and ARMA 8×8. Otokar products are recognised for their survivability, superior tactical and technical features and high ballistic and mine protection. These combat-proven wheeled vehicles serve in challenging terrain and extreme weather conditions, and have demonstrated their performance in various theatre of operations.
Tracked Armoured Vehicles
The TULPAR tracked armoured vehicle family is designed as a multi-purpose vehicle platform with significant ballistic and mine protection and superior firepower to support new-generation main battle tanks on the battlefield and provide fire support for infantry. TULPAR’s high power-to-weight ratio, all-terrain high-performance suspension and automatic track tensioning system offer superior mobility in diverse terrain and climatic conditions. TULPAR’s superior features and modular design allows it to be configured for multiple roles and missions – for example, the TULPAR Light Tank, with a 105 mm weapon system, provides a state-of-the-art solution with high firepower.
With the expansion of its vehicle family, Otokar has turned its focus towards turret and weapon station developments. With almost 30 years of knowledge and expertise in turret systems design and integration, the company has developed the MIZRAK, BOZOK, BASOK, UCOK and KESKIN remote controlled turrets, ranging from 7.62-30 mm. With its high-performance, high-tech turret systems, Otokar aims to strengthen its platforms and gain further regional and global competitive advantage.
