Kazakh military continue testing Turkish armored vehicle ARMA-8x8

The Ministry of Defense of Kazakhstan continues testing the Turkish armored car ARMA-8x8, proposed by the Otokar company for arming the Kazakh army.


Tests of an armored wheeled vehicle (BKM) ARMA-8x8 with a NEFER combat module were carried out at the Spassk training ground of the Karaganda garrison. BKM weapons were tested, firing was carried out at different times of the day. It is noted that the NEFER combat module is equipped with a 30-mm 2A42 automatic cannon and a 7,62 mm coaxial machine gun. The module is specially designed for use in the Kazakh army.

BM allows firing in the dark, using an aiming system and a thermal imaging camera. This provides good visibility and effective engagement of targets.

- says the message of the Ministry of Defense of Kazakhstan.


For our part, we note that the Kazakh military began testing the Turkish Arma 8X8 combat vehicle of the Turkish Otokar company last year. Primary tests have shown full compliance of the BKM with the declared characteristics. In October last year, "Otokar" presented a BMV for experimental military operation with a combat module installed at the request of the customer.

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.

      They have just begun. Interesting things happen when a country's leadership thinks about the country's development.
      They have in serial production 2 platforms 8 * 8 Arma and Pars
      Arma + Bakhcha is produced for the UAE


      The project of a new hybrid T-629 helicopter was presented. It will be electrically manned and unmanned.



      In an interview, Seljuk Bayraktar announced the following:
      “At the first stage, we will transfer 6 Akinci attack UAVs to the Turkish Armed Forces. They are capable of not only destroying enemy ground targets, but also any air targets. "

        Don't post nonsense! They are capable - this does not mean that it will be so ... Let them first develop an appropriate radar, where they are located in the Stone Age, when compared with Russia or further with the United States! The drone will be detected earlier by the radar: "Belka", "Irbis" or further AN / APG-77,81 - and destroyed ...
        Take and calculate - then you will understand a lot!

        Copying "Patria" and then on imported nodes, this is such an achievement.
        The helicopter is very similar in its absurdity to the Iranian "5th generation fighter".
        The drones are also completely on an import base, from the Turks only a carbon-fiber body and assembly.
        That's all "development". The neo-sultan, having enlisted Western support, promotes his imperial ambitions to the detriment of the Turkish people.

            While there was access to imported components of the "military" class, copying was just fine. The VBCI armored personnel carrier is more perfect than the rather old Patria, and the Boomerang was an improved VBCI version, and was created with the help of the French, taking into account the operating experience of the latter.
            A similar situation was in aviation and in the navy, with access to foreign technologies, Russia could produce a full range of modern and competitive weapons.

        They continue to build the Turan army.

        In 2013, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia created an association called the Association of Military Law Enforcement Agencies.
        In terms of the degree of unification of the armed forces, "Turan's army" should surpass even NATO.
        Kazakhstan's course towards "subordination" of the EAEU to narrowly understood national interests is accompanied by further rapprochement not only with the PRC, but also with Turkey. Experts from this country, almost in unison, write Kazakhstan into the conditional "register" of countries that fully support both the growing political and economic activity of Ankara in the Turkic-speaking countries, and the escalation of hostilities in the Caucasus.
        As you can see, not everyone can understand you.

Among the major buyers of Russian copper, in addition to the traditional Netherlands and Germany, which purchased 40% and 15% of the metal, respectively, in 2016 included Greece, which purchased 90,5 thousand tons (18%) of cathode copper. According to preliminary data, in 2017 the volume of metal exports increased by 13% and amounted to about 590 thousand tons."

            We developed and supplied some types of weapons to the Arabs for their money and only then put them into service. So, the participation of the customer, and even more so an ally in the design is quite possible. An ally's purchase of equipment from others is, for us, money past the cash register, the Americans are punishing their partners for this.
            As for Kazakhstan, as an ally, I completely agree with you.

            The fact is that their geopolitical situation is more interesting than that of a mustachioed one. They are very much interested both in relations with Russia and of course with Turkey. Both are extremely important for them, so Russia will be able to count on them as relative allies in the region for a long time to come. Well, Uzbekistan will still be the key for this region. It is necessary, first of all, to develop Russia's relations with him.

      Armored car / MRAP Arlan in serial production. Machines 6 * 6 and 8 * 8 are not clear, they seem to have been run-in. Maybe too expensive. In general, it is correct to have competition and a choice of at least 2 cars.

      Do the Kazakhs seem to be producing armor in conjunction with the Paramount Group, or is it better for the Turks?

      The beginning of cooperation between the Republic of Kazakhstan and NATO was the entry of our country in 1992 into the North Atlantic Cooperation Council, which in 1997 was transformed into the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council (EAPC).

      We had a ZAZ-966 in our family. With an iron "torpedo". He even, "bastard", did not overheat on the track! Parents traveled from Kostroma to Izhevsk and Kursk. True, the checkpoint failed in Kursk, but the car was not the first freshness either ...

        We went on a fishing trip to 2102 on the Kola Peninsula, up to a place of 200 meters along the gats in the swamp we need to force them. 4 peasants pull the two in their arms. Dedok past on constipation in general through the swamp with an eared, and so sarcastically help is not needed? Grandfather is not needed! !! And he is further through the swamp, only frogs to the sides.

    that the share of the Russian population in Kazakhstan fell from about 51 to 23-24% of the total.

    In 1989, 293 thousand Russians (23,1% of the population) lived in the Chechen-Ingush Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, now there are 24 thousand (1.92%) of the population. But everyone lives in Russia!
