Turkey offered Kazakhstan a combat wheeled vehicle "Arma" 8X8

The Armed Forces of Kazakhstan in the future may be armed with the Turkish armored wheeled vehicle "Arma". According to the Kazakh military department, the Turkish company "Otokar" has offered an armored car of its own production for experimental military operation.


As stated in the message of the Ministry of Defense of Kazakhstan, specialists and servicemen of the armed forces got acquainted with the combat capabilities of the "Arma" wheeled combat vehicle (BKM).

According to the developer, the Arma 8x8 BKM has high mobility, maneuverability and a sufficient level of ballistic and mine protection that meets NATO standards. BKM has the ability to swim through water bodies at a speed of up to 8 km / h. The design allows the vehicle to be adapted for various tasks by installing various combat modules with weapons ranging from machine guns of 7,62 mm caliber to 105 mm guns.


For testing, the Turkish company offers BKM in the following modifications: a fire support vehicle, a reconnaissance vehicle with the installation of equipment at the request of the customer, a command and staff vehicle, as well as engineering, sanitary, evacuation and amphibious options.

The Ministry of Defense of the Republic of Kazakhstan notes that the initial tests of the Arma BMV were carried out in March this year at a training ground in the Karaganda region during the day and at night, overcoming typical obstacles, as well as snow cover with a depth of 30 to 65 cm. Fire tests were also carried out. The tests carried out have shown full compliance with the BKM declared characteristics.

At present, the Otokar company, free of charge, provides a combat vehicle with a combat module installed at the request of the customer for experimental military operation.

    Why don't we provide Kazakhstan with an export version of Boomerang?

      Let's propose the famous s-300. They work very well as targets.

      But seriously, the conflict in Karabakh destroyed the CSTO. Completely. And countries should rely only on themselves and on real allies. Russia is not an ally. Everybody sees it. If you don't like the Pashinyans, then exclude Armenia from this union. If not excluded, then fulfill the obligations.

        Fedorinamaria - you don’t tell Russia what to do and how. For a start, you would think that by destroying Karabakh you will receive only hatred, and you will never see peace with your neighbors.

          I am not destroying Karabakh. I live in Russia and I am Russian. This is the first thing. Second, Turkey is a NATO country, and Erdogan can change his shoes on the go calmly and without a twinge of conscience. And the Iranian factor will play a very important role when Russia is squeezed from both sides.

            Fedorina Maria, in combination with the phrase “I am Russian,” suggests either poor schooling or not entirely traditional sexual orientation.

            I can ask you (in the masculine gender) fedorina maria (with a small letter otchegoto) what does Karabakh have to do with the CSTO? As far as I remember, he is not a member of this organization. Nobody attacked Armenia. There is no martial law. Moreover, let me remind you that even Armenia did not recognize Karabakh, the more demanding this from Russia is not the height of hypocrisy?

      Kazakhs and Cobra preferred our Tigers and Wolves. In 2012 we signed an agreement.
      In what way does the Cobra surpass the Russian Tiger, and even more so the Wolf? Yes, she is inferior to them. But the government of the newly independent countries is demonstrating their independence so zealously that even their pants are cracking.

          The Tiger has sadness with this, at the level of an armored UAZ.

          If the topic is interesting, you can read it. Initially, the developers of the Tiger were not tasked with having high-class mine protection. And when they developed the project, tested the car, they pointed out the insufficient capabilities of mine protection ........
          A design engineer is an artist, what he ordered, he will try to do it. The Soviet design school is the strongest in the world !!! Do you think that a light armored vehicle is more difficult to design than a main battle tank? And in tank building, our designers from the 40s of the 20th century to this day are AHEAD OF THE PLANET ALL!

          But ... will our country, which created the best tank, the first to create an infantry fighting vehicle, which raised the capabilities of the Airborne Forces to a level unattainable for others (even today), will be able to create a modern BRM or armored personnel carrier? Of course it can, but you need the desire of those in power ...

          Is it straight and "at the level of an armored UAZ"? belay Think WHAT you write!
          About "mine" protection - do you have data WHAT STANAG protection class does it have? I do not have! However, with dimensions similar to the BTR-82, it weighs only 3 tons more (and 3.5 tons less than the Typhoon). Therefore, I strongly doubt that mine resistance there is already of a very high class!

          "The army Tiger has protection in accordance with GOST only 3 classes and it was made in contrast to the Hummer for money and under the order of the Emirates. The car was developed by a group of GAZ designers under the leadership of A.G. Masyagin using the experience of operating Hummer off-road vehicles in the UAE army. a special vehicle "Tiger" (GAZ-2975). During the design process, the problem of unification of the vehicle with the BTR-80 and the armored vehicle GAZ-39371 "Vodnik" was solved. In 2000, prototypes of cars and documentation were transferred to the customer - the Bin Jaber company Group (UAE). Using these prototypes, the AR-17 Nimr car was later created in the UAE together with Renault. Several prototypes of the Tiger car were first demonstrated in Russia at a demonstration of equipment at the TsNII-21 training ground of the Russian Ministry of Defense in Bronnitsy in August 2002. "

      You are absolutely right.
      The market is not capacious, but there is no need to hop with your ears. After the cutting of the USSR, the Kazakhs got a great inheritance, in the form of subsoil, in which more than 90 elements of the periodic table can be mined with a decent market profit ...

      Shoigu's first words from the doorway - are you stunned! What the fuck is a Turkish "Arma"! )

      Were you there?
      Well, then we expect from Kazakhstan in the near future firm contracts for armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles of domestic production.

    Under the guise of trying to seize our markets, businessman Erdogan was grasping.

      They are not alone trying, so what will happen in the end ... but while Erdogan is losing other markets - the same boycott of Turkish in Saudi Arabia, which is gaining momentum ...

    An attempt to aggressively monetize the acquired image of a "country producing weapons of victory."
    It can be successful only if their weapons continue to win, and ours does not ensure victory for those who chose it.

    Quote: Maria Fedorina
    Let's propose the famous s-300. They work very well as targets.

    But seriously, the conflict in Karabakh destroyed the CSTO. Completely. And countries should rely only on themselves and on real allies. Russia is not an ally. Everybody sees it. If you don't like the Pashinyans, then exclude Armenia from this union. If not excluded, then fulfill the obligations.

    For a change, the treaty would be read before writing. Otherwise, we always like to speculate about how someone violates the agreement without reading it. Like a classic phrase. "I have not read the book, but I know that it is anti-Soviet." There was no attack on the CSTO member. A former member of the CSTO is at war with an unrecognized state entity. War with Armenia - no. Although everyone understands perfectly well, "we say Karabakh - we mean Armenia". Otherwise, where did the Karabakh Defense Army suddenly become the owner of the Elbrus missile systems, which of the three Transcaucasian states only Armenia possesses?
    Nobody attacks Armenia, which means there is no reason to enact the provisions of the CSTO treaty ...
    This has already been discussed 500 times. And the CSTO is not going anywhere. And rely on your strength - you wrote it absolutely correctly. Let each of the participants hope for their own strength ...

    Vita VKO (Vitaly), dear, business in Kazakhstan reacts quickly to our proposals. Kazakhs in the Russian Federation have been washing gold for several years. And since yesterday or the day before yesterday, they are the only ones who will be on the White Sea in the Murmansk region, not far from Kandalaksha, to revive the Vitino port. In addition to the restoration of the oil terminal, the Kazakhs plan to build a terminal for loading mineral fertilizers on ships (Cherepovets is not far away). But the Russian company from St. Petersburg completely withdrew from the project to revive the port.
