    Koç awaits gov’t approval to start mass production of domestic Turkish battle tank Altay

    Koç Holding’s Otokar has completed a seven-year prototype development process and will commence the mass production of 250 Altay main battle tanks as soon as it receives approval from Turkish authorities, according to a top company representative.

    “We completed the prototype development process in seven years in accordance with the vision of both the government and the Defense Ministry to meet their tank needs through domestic means. Otokar made the offer to start mass production. We are been waiting for approval and directives from the government, ministry and the Turkish Armed Forces,” said Koç Holding Vice Chair and Otokar Chair Ali Koç on Nov. 9.

    Koç said the company completed all infrastructure planning and programming for mass production.

    “As soon as we take a go, we will be able to start mass production in the following 18-22 months,” he said in a MÜSİAD press meeting at the High Tech Port in Istanbul.

    Meanwhile, Turkey’s undersecretary for defense industries, İsmail Demir, told a news conference in Ankara that Turkey was in the final stages of evaluating a renewed offer from Otokar for its Altay tank project on Nov. 8.

    Koç said the cancelation of the tender would extend the delivery of a domestic tank to the authorities by three or five years.

    He also said the company had created a highly competitive tank both in quality and pricing in comparison to its counterparts.

    “Otokar makes exports to 30 countries and works with 50 different entities … Our company has become known for making tanks,” added Koç.

    Let's talk about Altay's engine...

    German made MT 883 Ka-500 engines will be used in the first 250 Altay tanks but in other productions the Turkish government wants to use a domestic engine. Last year we launched the Power Group Development Project for the Altay tank. TÜMOSAN(Turkish Motor Industry and Trade) is the main contractor in this project. TÜMOSAN currently produces diesel engines and tractors in Turkey. First we decided to work with AVL as a technical support provider but there were some problems between the governments of Turkey and Austria. We found a second foreign technical support provider but there were still problems. We finally found a third tech support provider. Some sources say it is Ukraine. Also we signed a partnership and cooperation agreement with Kharkov Technical University. Ukraine already produces 6TD engines for tanks.

    TÜMOSAN talks with Ricardo plc for the Power Group Development Project. The talks are scheduled to end in 2016.

    Turkey's Altay MBT project hit by engine technology transfer issues

    Turkey's plans to build its Altay main battle tank (MBT) have hit a snag after Tümosan, the planned engine provider, cancelled a key technical support contract with Austria's AVL List GmbH.

    The cancellation comes after Austria's parliament unanimously adopted a non-binding motion that imposed an arms embargo against Turkey in November 2016. As a result conditions were placed on the transfer of technology to Turkey. Austria made the move in response to Turkey's increasing violation of human rights since the failed military coup attempt in July 2016.

    Tümosan has been tasked by the Turkish Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) with developing a local engine for the Altay MBT. The company brought in Austrian firm AVL List in 2015 to provide technology transfer and support in the development and integration of engines into the Altay tank. Due to the imposition of conditions on technology transfer, Tümosan cancelled the contract with AVL List on 17 January.

    "Due to the adoption by the Austrian government [of measures] to insist on export licences that include conditions that interfere in Turkey's domestic politics … the contract as recorded and revenue guarantee given by the company will be cancelled," Tümosan stated in a document published on Turkey's Public Disclosure Platform (KAP) on 17 January.

    "It has been understood that there will be serious hurdles that (the company) will face in the transfer of technologies concerning critical sub-components because of sanctions being imposed against Turkey recently in particular by the European Union countries," it added.

    The statement noted that instead, "Tümosan will go ahead with local suppliers as much as possible in the development of the engines".
