Japan and Turkey have agreed on the development of engines for tanks

3

Japan and Turkey reached an agreement on cooperation in the design and manufacture of engines for tanks.


Official agreements are currently being prepared, the Tokyo media reported today. Tokyo is now working in the field of military technology only with the United States, ITAR-TASS reports.

According to the information that has appeared today, the Turkish authorities in May turned to Japan for assistance in developing the engine for the new model tanks. Tokyo, after considering this idea, recommended Ankara as a partner to the largest Japanese heavy engineering corporation Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. It is a leading company in the national military-industrial complex, with experience in the design and manufacture of a wide range of weapons, including tanks, missiles, and combat aircraft.

In Japan, there are so-called. Three principles of arms exports, which previously actually prohibited the supply of military equipment, equipment and technology abroad. Some exceptions were made only for the USA. However, in 2011, the government significantly relaxed these restrictions. Now, in principle, Tokyo allows cooperation in the field of military technology with other states, provided that Japanese developments will not be transferred without permission to third countries.

In particular, in July of this year, Japan signed an agreement with the United Kingdom on cooperation in the development of defense equipment. However, specific projects in this area with London are not yet available.

Defense Minister Itunori Onodera, at a press conference in Tokyo today, did not refute reports of an impending military agreement with Ankara.

“Turkey has offered us various ideas in the field of technical cooperation,” he said. “Our position is that Japan is ready for the development of serious ties with Turkey.”

      I don’t remember what the Turks bought from Ukraine tanks and spare parts for them. The talk was about the participation of the T84-scimitar tanks in the tender. But only

    Now they will make a hybrid engine.
    But seriously, the Germans have a great time to make room.

    Now Tokyo, in principle, allows cooperation in the field of military technology with other states, provided that Japanese developments will not be transferred to third countries without its permission. This is how conditions are set when selling new technologies or weapons. And we are the Chinese: here, stamp and trade.

    Hmm, how good are Japanese engines? It’s strange that they didn’t cooperate with the Germans.

      Japanese engines are good

      One can only guess. There are no reviews. But Mitsubishi engines are good in passenger cars with trucks and on airplanes and on ships / ships. I don’t think so. that tank diesel will be worse.

      Well, about the Japanese engine, you can say that their tanks are equipped with their engines.
