Turkey is looking for a supplier of engines for Altai tanks

26
Turkish Ministry of Defense seeks engine supplier in Europe for its tanks "Altai", reports TSAMTO. with reference to Defense News.




Interest in supplying Turkey to the engine-transmission unit was shown by the American company Caterpillar and its British partner Perkins.

The military department noted that “the offer of Caterpillar to act as a partner in the Altai MBT program was made in view of the large-scale cooperation of Turkey and the United Kingdom in the military industry.”

In September, EU Minister for Affairs Omer Celik (Omer Celik) held several rounds of talks with a view to further expand the cooperation of Turkish and British defense companies, including Caterpillar-Perkins.

Earlier, the Defense Ministry chose the Turkish company Tumosan as the engine developer, which in turn chose the Austrian AVL List GmbH as a partner. However, in January, 2017, due to the intractable controversy over technology transfer restrictions, Tumosan canceled the agreement.

According to the resource, the Turkish side is also currently negotiating about the engines with German companies MTU and Renk. "However, given the worsening relations between Turkey and Germany, it seems unlikely that Berlin will authorize the transfer of technology to Ankara," the newspaper notes.

At the same time, Turkey is negotiating with 20, potential producers from other countries.

      Will not appear. There the tank still has a transmission of zrad. They thought the Korean will be, but no - the resource does not provide, therefore, either the Germans or the British.

        The Germans definitely fall away. Relations are almost at zero now. And with the British, on the contrary. 99.9% of the engine will be British

      The Turks clearly want to get technology, not the engines themselves.
      As for the Kharkov diesel, if they wanted, then they would have already bought it.

        And the option that they don’t want, but they’ll have to buy it, since there will never be another, didn’t occur to you?

    “Nevertheless, given the aggravation of relations between Turkey and Germany, it seems unlikely that Berlin will give permission for the transfer of technology to Ankara,” the publication notes.

      I think you should not advise them. Let Erdogan poke around the corners in which he managed to spoil. This is a Turkish headache.

      Yes, they probably already clicked on the Turks from the USA, so that Russia would not buy the T-90.

    If the Germans with the engines hold the Turks in one place, then there can be problems with the trunks. Therefore, they want technology.

    Get lost in the design approach! Create a tank, present it at the exhibition, and after that look for an MTO, a gun, a KAZ, suitable armor and on-board electronics for it ...

      So if Korean development was given for their tank, then it could not be otherwise. And Koreans are also not the greatest masters in tank building. That overlapped one on the other. laughing

    Two companies from Eskisehir announced at once that they were ready to develop and produce engines for the first domestic tank of a new generation.
    Türkiye Lokomotif ve Motor Sanayi AŞ (TÜLOMSAŞ), operating for more than a century and known as the manufacturer of the first Turkish car Devrim, as well as TUSAŞ Motor Sanayi AŞ (TEI), specializing in the manufacture of components for aircraft and assembly technologies, announced their readiness for development and the production of an engine for the Altai tank.
    Head of the Eskisehir Chamber of Commerce (ESO) Savash Ozidedemir in an interview with Anadolu agency noted that the experience gained by Turkish companies allows for the implementation of strategic projects similar to the construction of Altai tanks.
    “In the Inuyu area, Ford Otosan plants assemble engines from 400 to 500 horsepower. TÜLOMSAŞ produces engines up to 1000 horsepower. At the same time, TEI produces engines for jet aircraft and has proven itself in the field of engine design, ”said Ozideemir.
    The head of ESO also drew attention to the assembly of engines for the Navy company at one of the Eskisehir enterprises.
    In his opinion, success in the development and construction of engines for a domestic tank can be achieved if TEI and TÜLOMSAŞ join forces. “Eskisehir’s companies can handle the development of engines for tanks,” he said.
    I think it will be so ...

    It's not about the engine supplier, but the transfer of all engine and transmission technology ... In Korean emergency, this is all MTU production. There is no problem with production for the Turkish Armed Forces. When exporting (Turkey makes a big bet on this) Germany does not issue permission to re-export. This applies to self-propelled guns.

    An interesting partnership in NATO - the Turks do not know whose engine to put on their tank. They are going to fight together in the future, one might say "brothers in arms."
