Turkey showed the use of the Russian ATGM "Kornet-E" on the Kaplan-10 armored vehicle

The Turkish Ministry of Defense posted on YouTube a video of the firing of the Kaplan-10 self-propelled anti-tank complex, which is armed with Russian Kornet-E missiles. The video was filmed during the "Ateş Serbest-2020" exercise, which began on October 22 this year.


The development by the Turkish company FNSS of the newest Kaplan self-propelled anti-tank complex equipped with the Russian Kornet anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM) was reported at the beginning of May last year. At the same time, the Turkish Ministry of Defense announced that the complex will enter the troops by the end of 2019.

This complex is part of a line of various types of ATGMs developed by FNSS and is supplied to the troops in two versions, differing in weapons: one is armed with the Russian Kornet ATGM, and the second - with the Turkish OMTAS missile. The complex was developed as part of the program for updating the fleet of Turkish self-propelled anti-tank weapons.


Until 2021, the country's armed forces will receive 260 units of the Kaplan SPTRK, while the exact number of vehicles with the Kornet ATGM is not named.

Meanwhile, the use of the Russian Kornet ATGM in Turkey is not an isolated one. All the same armory In 2018, FNSS introduced a new version of the wheeled armored vehicle Pars 4x4, made in the form of a self-propelled anti-tank missile system with a combat module with Russian 9M133-1 Kornet-E anti-tank missiles.

The large-scale exercise Ateş Serbest-2020 was launched by the Turkish Ministry of Defense on October 22 after the statement of support for Azerbaijan "in a just struggle for the liberation of the lands occupied by Armenia." The exercise uses new equipment, including the Fırtına self-propelled guns, Korkut air defense systems, Kargu kamikaze drones, OMTAS medium-range ATGM systems and Turkish-made assault rifles, a total of 37 military developments used for the first time.

          Of course you don't. It's not you who were shot down from the TOPs in Georgia. And you were not ironed in the DPR with the seventy-second? Right? And the fact that it was not produced either in Georgia or in Ukraine is all the same to you.

            finish mon cher with pathos. my service began in the zero practically and from school I have seen a lot of things over the years of service. what does Georgia or DPR have to do with it? everything that you named was produced in the USSR. you can leave your claims there. I asked you about something completely different.

              Heh, well, let's hypothetically ... S-400 in Sinop amid the aggravation of Turkey-France shot down a Malaysian Boeing (does it look like anything?). The question is: who will be the last one?

                  The answer is incorrect: Russia will always be extreme - the West does not need "other" extreme ones, because military action plans have been drawn up against us for 20 years already, and even the Bundeswehr are being taught how to handle tactical B-61s, although there are no documents that categorically prohibit this.

        There is no point in whimpering on this topic: the letter "E" (export) says that these ammunition is not too scary for us - that's why we get money for it.
        And if someone crumbles someone with our weapon, then we have nothing to do with it: everyone sells weapons for which there is a demand, and for any cunning oppa there is a device with a special screw (or a tab in electronics) - after all, we are still did not see the results of the work of our S-400, which are in the hands of the sultan and used against our air force or army. request

    "Cornet" is a very powerful thing in terms of combat effectiveness. And if on the correct chassis - then, of course, there are no questions ... An interesting question is that the Turks cannot make an analogue of the "cornet", it seems ...

    and is supplied to the troops in two versions, differing in armament: one is armed with the Russian Kornet ATGM and the other with the Turkish OMTA missileS.
    It is quite logical - both ours were bought by Cornets, and our own in abundance, I suppose.

        it cannot be.
        Kaplan is a translation of the Cohen surname among Polish Jews.
        does she look like a Turkish tiger?

          Looked at the etymological source of the Turkish language. So ..., they write that the word "Kaplan" is formed from the Turkish word "Kapmak / grab" and from the Mongolian suffix - lan. In Turkish, verbs lose the -mak / mek suffix when new words are derived from it. Kap-mak ---- mak leaves and -lan is added. We get "Kaplan". Type "grabber", although there is no such word in Russian, I can suggest "catcher".

            I will add: some Turkish words (aslan / lion, yılan / snake, sırtlan / hyena ...) also take the suffix -lan from the Mongolian language.

    The Turks will now have some problems with NATO arms suppliers, so the Russian Kornet ATGM fits well.

      They started buying in the USSR. Now they rely on their own production, but there are a lot of imported components. wink

        The most difficult thing is that the sales rates are prohibitively high, and this product is not made at the stamping site in order to drive up to 7,62 pcs / min like cartridges 1000.
