A video of tests of the new Turkish armored personnel carrier ZAHA appeared on the web

A video of the tests on the water of the Turkish ZAHA armored personnel carrier, designed specifically to equip the TCG Anadolu (L-408) universal amphibious assault ship under construction for the Turkish Navy, has appeared on the Web. The video was posted on its official YouTube channel by the Turkish military department.


The Turkish military conducted a self-correction test of an armored personnel carrier. These tests test the ability of armored vehicles to return to their original position when overturning in water.

The contract for the design, development and production of 27 ZAHA (Zırhlı Amfibi Hücum Araçları) floating combat vehicles was signed in March 2017. Of the ordered vehicles, 23 are to be produced in the form of conventional armored personnel carriers, two - as command and staff and two more - as an ARV.


The ZAHA BTR is a further development of the AAV7 armored personnel carrier for the US Marine Corps (formerly LVTP-7), but with a new armored corps, engine compartment and recycled undercarriage.

Combat weight - 30 tons; in the armored personnel carrier version, the vehicle can accommodate three crew members and twenty-one paratroopers. The body is made of an aluminum-magnesium alloy and reinforced with spaced-apart ceramic armor panels. This provides protection against 14,5 mm armor-piercing bullets. There are elements of mine protection.

Movement on the water at a speed of 7 km / h is provided by two water cannons, while the excitement should not exceed 2 points, when using a special "seaworthy" kit (snorkel pipes, etc.) - up to 4 points.

The armored personnel carrier is equipped with a Turkish-made BIUS. In the basic version, a self-developed FNSS DUM is installed with a 12,7 mm M2 machine gun and a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher.

    During the test, were they replaced with sandbags? request

      No, because the Turks are stupid (like the Americans). They probably did not guess during the tests on the water to increase the weight of the car, taking into account the full crew and landing. They will take the car into service, it will climb up to swim with a full landing force and blast, blast, it will be "she drowned."

      That is, they have 3 armored personnel carriers per company in total. How are they going to fight? laughing

      Turkey reminds me of Nazi Germany, there were flags with a swastika on every iron, and here - a crescent.

    I don't know how it will show it as an armored personnel carrier, but the KShM (command vehicle) will probably turn out to be good - large internal volumes, fairly decent protection, the ability to swim. If you add good equipment and a powerful autonomous electric unit, then it's just fire.

        Well, if they want to use it for landing troops from the sea, now the Chinese and Americans have machines that can go on planing from them and they had to copy. Driving on water at 7 km / h is no good.

          loki565, here I am, too, but the Chinese have a car already in the army, and the Americans turned their project down considering it too expensive and apparently there were technical problems

      pretty decent protection, ability to swim
      belay Quite conflicting requirements. But since it floats with protection, it's definitely crap, especially when (large internal volumes) repeatIf my grandmother had ..., then she could definitely, but she was no longer her. repeat By the way, the film was called - "Watch your hands." Not out of harm, but simply, it only happens.

    Even when I have not been to Greece, the coastline allows the use of this armored personnel carrier for the landing. Erdogan still wants to be a gas sultan. They write that 30 tons, even I have doubts. Archimedes probably too. repeat

          Crete is far away why send a landing there, and for a long time it will be necessary to conduct hostilities there. The easiest way is to land just the same barmaley on a kind of small island near the coast of Asia Minor.

          For barmaley and other ill-wishers, the Turks have a new system, about which for some reason there are no articles on this resource. After all, this is a very interesting system, and after a long search, I did not even find analogs to compare. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q14YGjfCsA&t=12s

            Is it TRLG-230? You have to search better. MLRS 9K58 "Smerch" + 9M542 - an adjustable rocket projectile with a detachable high-explosive or cluster warhead with a firing range of up to 120 km

                Do not talk nonsense, my pro-Turkish friend. Aiming a projectile using the UAV's laser targeting center is more of a disadvantage than an advantage.

                    Of course not. To use a UAV that itself can carry means of destruction, but is used as an aiming quadcopter is nonsense.

                      UAVs themselves carry weapons, in parallel they can point with a laser, from high altitudes and one does not interfere with the other. The quadcopter is a toy in comparison, and even cannot be compared. There is no nonsense, on the contrary, it is cheap, effective, and the accuracy is high.

    armored personnel carrier ZAHA, designed specifically to equip the universal amphibious assault ship TCG Anadolu (L-408) under construction for the Turkish Navy.

    Contract for the design, development and production of 27 ZAHA amphibious combat vehicles

    That is, in fact - a piece, handmade, not involving mass production, it turns out?

      27 vehicles, 1 per platoon, is like 2 battalions. By Russian standards - quite a serial production laughing

      Even with the "advice", even with the "commies", depending on the chronic insanity of Russophobia, you should know and remember - it is the USSR that is the pioneer in the development and use of BMPs as a class of armored combat vehicles.

And the question to the "" minusers "" - how did my question hook you .. or is it just another aggravation of yours? There is nothing offensive or humiliating in the word "advice" ... it seems to me that someone should be treated

    30 tons for BMP - will not be "little" ??? This carriage on tracks looks very much like the Chinese versions - and this height was invented specifically for better aiming of ATGM (C) weapons ??? Although the Turks have already boasted of their unmanned aerial vehicles, in reality it turned out that these flying "masterpieces" in bulk and in bulk simply filled up the places of their flights in Syria and Libya. Well, this state does not pull on a high-tech power, it does not pull at all.
