Turkey

Turkish firm Otokar has completed the development of a new battle tank called Altay with assistance from South Korea.

A top company official was quoted as saying by Yonhap that the firm plans to begin mass production within the next 18 to 22 months.

The Altay main battle tank (MBT) project started in 2008 with Turkey signing a contract with Hyundai Rotem Co., a subsidiary of the Hyundai Group and the manufacturer of the K2 Black Panther battle tank, for technology transfer.

Turkey intends to build 250 Altay MBTs initially, and ultimately produce 1,000 new tanks in four separate lots of 250 units.
