So far, only a prototype. Indonesia continues to test medium tank Tiger


It is planned that the tests will end by June of this year, which will allow to certify the tank and begin mass production. During the tests, the tank will pass a set of static, mechanical and dynamic tests, as well as conduct firing.

Tiger (the Turkish name is Kaplan MT) is a classic representative of modern medium tanks. The machine under the Modern Medium Weight Tank (MMWT) program is being developed by the Turkish corporation FNSS together with the Indonesian company PT Pindad for the armed forces of Indonesia, while FNSS pointed out its high export potential.

"Tiger" is built on the tracked chassis of the new generation Kaplan developed by FNSS Corporation. The tower is a Belgian CMI Defense CT-CV with a 105-mm rifled gun and a paired 7,62-mm machine gun. The gun is equipped with a drum-type automatic loader and is compatible with NATO standard 105-mm tank ammunition. The machine is equipped with a digital fire control system with stabilized sights (with an integrated thermal imaging channel and a laser rangefinder), information and control and navigation systems, as well as a circular review system. The survival of the vehicle and crew is provided by laser irradiation sensors, smoke grenade launchers, a system of protection against toxic substances of mass destruction, as well as an automated fire extinguishing system.

          No absolutely not confused. For the Ministry of Defense, the military is just ammunition, I'm already silent about the technology.

            Clearly, nothing new, repeat the old liberal song. They also forgot to say that it was Stalin's fault.

        If a bird enters the engine, this may result in the loss of a car, but should not result in a loss of crew.

          For what I bought - for that I sell:
          “Both pilots who fought for the plane until the last minutes, according to a report from the place, died,” the department said.

        It is difficult to understand how the bird pulled out two engines at once, or they immediately fell into the flock or flew into the cockpit.

              Why splash down? I understand when civilian vessels try to land on water to save passengers.

            Most likely a technical malfunction. The question is why the pilots did not catapult?

              probably tried to save the car, but if splashed, it would still have failed.
              it was necessary for pilots to save themselves, and not iron, the eternal memory of the pilots.

    Well done Turkey. The Islamic world needs a Muslim country with a developed defense industry, while it is Turkey and Pakistan, each moves differently in different areas. Although it may be long.

    Survival of the machine and crew is ensured by laser radiation sensors, smoke grenade launchers, a system of protection against toxic substances of mass destruction, and also an automated fire-fighting system [quote] [/ quote]
