ISTANBUL --- A mockup of the Altay, the very first Turkish tank project, was displayed Tuesday at the International Defense Industry Fair, or IDEF, in Istanbul.

 

The mockup of the tank, developed by Turkey’s Otokar, still lacks the engine and several of the tank’s systems but looks exactly like the first prototype, which is due to be available in 2013, Otokar officials said Tuesday.

 

“The prototype of the Altay is ready,” Defense Minister Vecdi Gönül said during a press meeting April 30.

 

Otokar and its partners have been tasked with delivering four prototypes for the next generation of tanks by 2015.

 

The company is obtaining know-how from South Korea’s Hyundai Rotem under a 2008 agreement.
