Otokar Introduces New 18 Tonnes Amphibious Tracked Vehicle


05 Mei 2015


Tulpar-S 18 tonnes amphibious IFV (photo : Shephard)


IDEF 2015: Otokar shows new Tulpar-S variant

A new anti-tank variant of the Tulpar family of tracked armoured vehicles from Otokar is being shown at the IDEF exhibition in Istanbul for the first time.

The Tulpar-S has been developed by the company for the Turkish Weapon Carrying Vehicle (WCV) programme and is fitted with a new RWS from Aselsan that carries four Kornet anti-tank missiles as well as a machine gun.

Oguz Korkut Kibaroglu, tank system engineering manager at Otokar, told Shephard that Tupar-S weighs 15t, but can be increased to 18t. The amphibious tank hunting platform has level 4 armour and can be made available in APC, IFV and other modes, as well as carry different weapon systems.

He said that the Turkish procurement agency SSM is in the bidding phase for the army’s WCV programme and that Otokar has started engineering tests on its WCV platform in order to be ready for it.

Kibaroglu said that there are similar components in the Tuplar and Tuplar-S, and this level of commonality means that it is faster to approve the overall system for when the SSM begins its own qualification tests.

Tulpar-S is 2.9m wide, 5.7m long and has a crew capacity of ten. It is equipped with a 280kW engine and can achieve a maximum speed of about 70km/h. CBRN life support is standard, as well as mine-resistant crew seats and driver front and rear thermal and day cameras.

The original Tulpar multipurpose platform, which ranges from 25t-45t, was launched at IDEF in 2013. Otokar is showing an updated variant this year fitted with the Mizrak-30 medium-calibre remote-controlled turret with 30mm dual-feed automatic cannon with 210 ready rounds.

The vehicle on show is 32t and measures 7.23m long and 3.45m wide. It also has a new MTU 8V199 turbo-charged diesel engine, producing 720hp, and Renk HSWL 106 hydromechanical transmission, which replaces the earlier Scania engine and Sapa mechanical transmission. It is fitted with the HA35-15000 indigenous designed final drive system from Otokar.

Kibaroglu told Shephard that the Turkish military likes German engines – they are also being introduced as part of the M60 tank modification and are used in the Altay MBT – however customers can request any power pack they want.

Like the Tulpar-S, it has standard CBRN life support, driver front and rear thermal and day cameras and mounting interfaces for two ATGMs and equipment. It has a crew of three, space for nine troops and is equipped with software-defined vehicle radios, GPS/INS, internal comms, with options for a battlefield management system that includes C3I.

Kibaroglu said that requirements have not been announced, but the Turkish Army is planning for lightweight, next-generation vehicles.

Performance testing has been completed on Tulpar, and now Otokar is trialling various configurations of the vehicle to meet different weight requirements, which will include a range of suspension systems.

Tulpar can also be modified into APC, combat vehicle, ambulance, 105mm anti-tank vehicle, mortar vehicle maintenance and recovery vehicle, engineering vehicle, MLRS vehicle, air defence and reconnaissance vehicle modes.

IDEF 2015: FNSS launches new AFV family


05th May 2015 - 10:57  by Tim Fish in Istanbul  




Turkish armoured vehicle manufacturer, FNSS has launched a new class of armoured fighting vehicle (AFV) called Kaplan (Tiger) to mark the opening of the IDEF 2015 exhibition in Istanbul.

The family of tracked vehicles includes an armoured personnel carrier, infantry fighting vehicle, reconnaissance, ambulance, recovery and engineering variants.

For firepower the IFV variant will be fitted with a new 30mm stabilised remote weapon station from FNSS called Teber (battle-axe). Teber is also being unveiled at the IDEF exhibition and has more ready rounds than existing AFVs and ammo change can be completed with the operator remaining under armour.

This is a different vehicle to the Kaplan that was launched as the Light Armoured Weapon Carrier – Tracked (LAWC-T) at IDEF two years ago. That was KAPLAN 10 (10 ton) and the LAWC-T concept is different to the new next generation armoured vehicle concept.

A spokesperson for FNSS told Shephard that the Turkish Army has ‘no official requirements released for this concept. But as far as we know there are some studies for the future armored fighting vehicles.

‘Because of its weight class together with mobility and protection futures there is still a demand for FNSS ACV15 and 19 FoV. The biggest reason for FNSS developing the medium weight, Kaplan New generation Armored Fighting Vehicle is to meet future requirements with higher weight class indigenous design tracked armoured combat vehicle,’ the spokesperson said.

‘Kaplan offers one of a kind features in terms of high cross country mobility with amphibious capability, survivability, high payload capacity including 30 and 40mm gun systems, even turrets mounting 105mm, and a kind human machine interface with open architecture and situational awareness.  

‘The ACV may remain in service for a few more decades. But most probably the Turkish Land Forces may replace the M113A1 & A2 fleet. However, modernized M113 vehicles still provide military capabilities to many armies worldwide.’

He added that Kaplan has ‘15% improved range and top speed compared to the ACV 15’.

Other capabilities of the Kaplan include an amphibious capability of 8km/h; pivot turn and backwards movement functions; and the ability to swim without preparation. It uses a rubber track to reduce weight; vibration; ground pressure; and improve road handling.

Kaplan has a payload capacity of 7t with 40% more space in the driver cockpit compared to other tracked AFVs and an extra 30% field of view. FNSS said that it has an improved power-to-weight ratio of 25hp/t.

The family of vehicles has survivability at its core and is fitted with active protection; mine protection in the hull, floor and seating; modular armour; overhead protection for heads up drive; dual NBC protection; explosion protection and sealed fuel tanks; and a reduced thermal signature.

Sub-systems include: improved a/c; adaptive interior lights; integrated hot and cold drinking water cells; more space for equipment and ammo; 360° situational awareness with day/night cameras; see through armour google for driver and commander; and 5%-95% human ergonomic seats.

Communications and navigation sub-systems include: a wireless intercom; next generation communications system; land navigation system; and also improved command and display panels; and integrated auxiliary power unit; and adjustable LED headlights.

La touche française du nouveau blindé turc KAPLAN


Actualités  Pierre Brassart  5 mai, 2015  



Lors du salon IDEF qui se tient ces jours-ci à Istambul, la grande société turc FNSS qui est spécialisé dans les véhicules blindées (on lui doit notamment la gamme PARS en 8×8, 6×6 et maintenant 4×4, ainsi que les blindés chenillés ACV-15, 19 et 30) a dévoilé sa toute nouvelle génération de véhicule blindé qui porte le nom de KAPLAN-20 (20 faisant référence à sa masse totale en ordre de combat).


Le système PILAR V de METRAVIB monté sur le nouveau blindé KAPLAN-20 de la société turque FNSS

Sur la tourelle (dont la dénomination est TEBER-30) de ce nouveau blindé, en étant attentif, on peut repérer un équipement qui n’a rien de turc. Il s’agit d’un système PILAR V de détection et localisation acoustique des coups de feu développé et produit par la firme française METRAVIB. Il semble en effet que la Turquie soit cliente de cette PME française dont les produits équipent près d’une vingtaine d’armée dans le monde.

Selon un responsable des ventes de METRAVIB, les nouveaux véhicules du programme Scorpion (EBRC et VBMR) pourrait également en être doté (ce que semble d’ailleurs également indiqué plusieurs images et maquettes de ces engins), bien que tout ne soit pas encore joué de ce côté-là.

IDEF 2015: Turkey aims for defence industrial independence by 2023

Charles Forrester, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

06 May 2015


Turkey produced 60% of its defence materiel in 2014, according to IHS analysis. (IHS)  



Turkey is aiming to achieve independence from imported equipment by 2023, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at the IDEF defence exhibition in Istanbul.

"Our plan is to completely eliminate external dependency on defence equipment supply with ongoing plans and investments until 2023," the Anatolia news agency reported on 5 May.

"Our next target in [the] defence industry will be unique design," he added.

According to IHS data, Turkey assembled 60% of equipment that was delivered to its armed forces in 2014, with the United States (15%) and Spain (9%), the two other largest sources of equipment. Imports of foreign-made equipment were valued at USD1.5 billion in 2014, according to the IHS Balance of Trade 2015 report.

Turkey is also keen to promote exports of its defence equipment, with the Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) claiming to have exported USD1.6 billion worth of goods in 2014. The country's main export items ranged from armoured vehicles, to rockets and electronic systems, with the country looking to boost the value of defence exports to USD25 billion by 2023.

The country is also developing a number of indigenous land and missile systems, many of which are in collaboration with international manufacturers as part of a set of wider offset agreements related to the country's defence equipment procurements. Major indigenous defence design programmes include the Altay main battle tank and a fifth-generation fighter programme, known as the Turkish Fighter Experimental (TFX).

The country is also in the process of acquiring Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter aircraft, for which it will serve as a maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) hub and has already undertaken component manufacture and assembly. Additionally, Turkish industry will also be assembling localised and international variants of the Sikorsky S-70 BlackHawk helicopter as part of a USD3.5 billion deal announced in 2014.

IDEF 2015: First sight of SOM-J cruise missile

07th May 2015 - 12:06  by Tim Fish in Istanbul

 


The new SOM-J (stand-off missile) cruise missile destined for the F-35 aircraft is about to begin Phase IIB risk reduction studies.

According to Roketsan, which is developing the missile with Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, a third and final phase – integration – will follow to be completed in 2018.

But first a preliminary design review will take place in September 2015 followed by a subsystem design and tests to take place in November.

Flight tests of SOM-J are due to begin in 2Q2015 on the Turkish Air Force F-16 Block 40 aircraft with the development programme completed in 2018.

At the IDEF exhibition in Istanbul, Dr Erdogan Aydemir, project leader for naval missiles at Roketsan told Shephard that the design of the outer shell of the SOM-J has been altered compared to the original SOM-A and -B designs to allow it to fit in the F-35 internal weapons bay.

Roketsan and Lockheed Martin signed an agreement last year to cooperate on development of the SOM-J for the F-35. Aydemir said that Lockheed provided the specifications of the payload bay on the F-35 to allow Roketsan to meet the space requirements.

The design and development work on the outer shell is due to be completed in June. The model of the aircraft on display at IDEF for the first time shows a thinner, yet slightly longer design compared to the original SOMs. It has retractable wings and fins and has a different warhead for its naval mission.

Aydemir said that SOM-J will have a semi-armour piercing warhead, which is different to the blast fragmentation warhead in the SOM-A and the dual stage tandem penetration warhead in the SOM-B.

However, he added that the remaining payloads will be the same to allow the programme to get to completion. They consist of an inertial navigation system, GPS, terrain referenced navigation system, image-based navigation system, IIR seeker and an automatic target acquisition system.

SOM-A and -B have a range of 250km and are already fitted to the Turkish Air Force F-4E/2020 and F-16 Block40 fighter aircraft as a primary anti-surface warfare system.

Roketsan signed a separate cooperation agreement with Airbus Defence and Space to integrate the SOM onto the Typhoon and other platforms.

The Turkish Armed Forces have selected the AVCI 1-4x Combat Rifle Scope as an optic for the new 7.62 mm MKEK MPT-76 battle rifle, the manufacturer announced at the IDEF show in Istanbul.

"The 3E EOS company received the order for 200 AVCI 1-4x scopes for armed forces qualification tests a week ago, but we could not unveil the information until today," Engin Ozdemir, the company's vice general manager, told IHS Jane's on 6 May.

"The AVCI 1-4x is to be a standard optical sight for the new Turkish MPT-76 rifle. When it passes the army trial we expect to deliver 20,000 combat rifle scopes to the army", he said. "The Turkish Armed Forces will be ordering 200,000 MPT-76 rifles, which means that every 10th Turkish soldier would be equipped with our sight."

The AVCI (Hunter) is a variable magnification 1x and 4x scope with a 24-6° field of view. It is equipped with a red-illuminated reticule for 5.56 mm and 7.62 mm calibres located in its second focal plane. The reticule illumination is powered by one 3v lithium CR2032 battery with 300 hours of life.

The AVCI weighs in at 650 g and is water resistant to 3 m. Its housing is made of high-strength anodised aluminium with an additional top mount for miniature red-dot sights. It uses optical glass made by the German company Schott.

Turkish military electronics specialist Aselsan has displayed its Hisar range of short- and medium-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) systems for the first time at IDEF 2015 in Istanbul.

The range includes the Hisar-A short-range SAM system, the Hisar medium-range SAM system, and a new fire control system (FCS) for SAM batteries. These have been developed by Aselsan as prime contractor for the programmes under a contract awarded by the Turkish Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) in 2011.

Hisar-A is based on an FNSS ACV-30 tracked vehicle chassis armed with four Roketsan Hisar-A SAMs. Formerly known as T-Laladmis, the tracked Hisar-A system mounts its own mast-mounted air surveillance radar and an electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) system, allowing it to operate as an independent standalone system without the need to operate as a battery with a separate FCS. The Hisar-A system is manned by a crew of three: two control personnel and a driver for the vehicle.

Hisar-A is currently in its subsystem test phase, having completed its system definition phase, company representatives told IHS Jane's at IDEF. Full tests of the complete system are expected to begin next year. Currently three prototypes of the Hisar-A system have been completed, with delivery of the first systems to the Turkish military for qualification planned for 2017.

Roketsan officials at the exhibition told IHS Jane's that the Hisar-A missile (previously known as AIHSF) has a maximum altitude of 5 km and a maximum overall range of 15 km (at sea level). Roketsan is subcontractor to Aselsan for both Hisar missiles, responsible for the all-up rounds, including their launch canisters.

The medium-range Hisar system (previously known as T-Maladmis) is based on a wheeled Mercedez-Benz chassis equipped with six Roketsan Hisar-O missiles.

This system is designed to operate as a battery in concert with the Aselsan FCS, which is equipped with a mobile search radar, EO/IR system, and targeting radar. The Hisar-O missile has a maximum altitude of 10 km and a maximum range of 25 km at sea level.

Development/company trials of the Hisar system are expected to be completed by 2018.

Ballistic flight tests of the Hisar-A missile occurred in October 2013, with Hisar-O following in August 2014. The two missiles have been designed to feature a high degree of commonality, and share the same infrared (IR) seeker (developed by Aselsan), the same high explosive fragment warhead (being developed by Tubitak Sage), and the same impact and proximity fuze.

The missiles also share the same interface with their launch canister and the same umbilical connection. As well, there are high levels of technological commonality in the missiles' motor, control section, power supply, datalink, guidance, and safe/arm device. Both missiles are mid-course guided by radio-frequency datalink and feature terminal IR guidance.

Both missiles are hard launched vertically from their canister and powered by a dual pulse solid propellant motor. This provides an initial pulse for launch and mid-course flight, and a final sprint pulse during the terminal guidance phase for increased speed. They also both feature a hybrid control actuation system, with the missiles' external control surfaces providing midcourse guidance while thrust-vectoring jet vanes within the rocket's nozzle provide additional manoeuvrability in the missiles' terminal phase.

The Hisar-A and Hisar-O missiles will continue their flight test programme over the next two years. While company officials were not able to disclose how many flight tests are planned, the next phases of the trials will include control tests, vertically launched control tests, seeker guidance tests, and qualification tests.

Aselsan officials also said that the Korkut self-propelled anti-aircraft gun (SPAAG) system, also based on the FNSS ACV-30 tracked chassis and unveiled at IDEF 2013, has almost completed its test programme. Field tests have already been conducted against air and ground targets, and customer qualification trials are expected to begin in 2016. The company hopes that a serial production contract for Korkut will be signed in 2015.

IDEF 2015: Azerbaijan displays firearm developments

Remigiusz Wilk, Istanbul - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly

The Ministry of Defence Industry of Azerbaijan (MODAR) debuted a wide range of new firearms at the IDEF defence exhibition in Istanbul. These included: EM-14 5.56 mm assault rifle, 7.62 mm Yirtiji semi-automatic sniper rifle, and the 40 mm RBG/M11 revolver grenade launcher.

The EM-14 is a derivative of the Khazri rifle that has been built in Azerbaijan since MODAR purchased a license from Izhmash in 2011 to locally build a modified version of the 5.45 mm AK-74M. Compared with the earlier Khazri, the EM-14 is equipped with a longer forearm with a MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail and an M4-type telescopic buttstock. Most significantly though, the new rifle is chambered in the NATO 5.56x45 mm cartridge rather than the Russian 5.45x39 mm cartridge.

Serial production of the EM-14 is planned to start in 2016. While now the rifle has been designed for export, MODAR representatives confirmed to IHS Jane's that the Azerbaijani armed forces are planning to switch to NATO standard calibres in the future.

Azerbaijan has also tested and manufactured a new line of translucent polymer 30-round magazines for the AK-74 and AK/AKM to assure Azerbaijani self-reliance in this field.

Since MODAR was founded the organisation has focused on sniper rifles. The first weapon designed in Azerbaijan was the semi-automatic Istigal anti-materiel rifle chambered in 14.5x114 mm. This has now been followed by modernised Istigal-T variant, making its debut at IDEF with a reduced weight of 28 kg. Serial production of a 12.7x108 mm version of Istigal, known as Mubariz, is expected to begin serial production at the turn of 2015/16.

A new 7.62x54R mm semi-automatic sniper rifle called Yirtiji was also shown for the first time at IDEF. The rifle, intended to replace the Russian SVD rifle, is currently undergoing military trials. The weapon features a 620 mm barrel, weighs 6 kg, and is fed from a 10-round Dragunov steel magazine. The Yirtiji rifle features a M16-style bolt catch lever and is ambidextrous. Safety switches are located on both sides of receiver, while the shooter can switch the position of the charging handle from left to right.

Company officials state that the Azerbaijani defence industry has already manufactured 100 Yalguzag bolt-action sniper rifles for its armed forces. The Yalguzag is chambered in the 7.62x51 mm NATO calibre, not the Russian 7.62x54R mm widely used in Azerbaijan before. Officials added that the Turkish General Directorate of Security (EGM) has ordered 350 Azerbaijan made RPG-7V2 'Gaya' rocket-propelled grenade launchers. A contract was signed with Iraq for 500 RPG-7s and 500 grenade launchers.
