Le SSM travaille sur un mécanisme de crédit de gouvernement à gouvernement pour les exportations.
En gros, un FMS Turc
De la bouche du SSM Murad Bayar :
The strengths of the Turkish defence industry have been a high-level of cost effectivity, high quality, on time delivery and a very effective after-sales support in all of those regions. We are also working on a new export credit mechanism for Government to Government (G2G) sales of defence products. We believe that Turkish defence products will be also advantageous in terms of finance after establishing this credit mechanism.
The word korgan, translated from the ancient Turkic language, means “protected place” or “castle”. It is with a well-fortified and safe structure, as conceived by the designer, this vehicle should be associated.
FNSS Korgan – a military-designed amphibious hybrid car with remote control, ballistic protection, and modularity, which, if necessary, allows you to transform it to perform various missions.
The concept provides for a large enough interior space to accommodate many different modular solutions. The combat vehicle is capable of transporting 14 people, acting as a command post, an ambulance, a fire engine, as well as transporting ammunition and fuel.
With intelligent drive control, a diesel-electric hybrid power supply, and easily replaceable two battery modules, Korgan delivers top performance in any terrain.
When developing the hull and the concept of the layout of the armored vehicle, special emphasis was placed on maximum practicality. Electrically operated double-wing gullwing side doors and a wide tailgate with a retractable ramp allow servicemen to exit the vehicle at high speed.
The independent suspension system, airless tires, and the highest lean angles give Korgan countless advantages over rough terrain. Thanks to two unmanned drones located in the niches in front of the combat vehicle, it is possible to conduct reconnaissance of the surrounding area in advance in order to avoid possible threats.
In addition, with the help of a retractable 360-degree front camera and four lidar sensors, the vehicle can be remotely controlled or, if necessary, complete unmanned missions.
The project was created by Turkish designer Emre Husmen for the FNSS Mildesign International Land Vehicle Design Contest, hosted annually by the US-Turkish military-industrial consortium FNSS, and won one of its prizes in 2019. If you're not checking out their design contests then you're missing out. They actually invent people to conceptualize future vehicles. Many of the designs flat out look terrific.
A shipment of Hızır light armoured vehicles made by the Turkish company Katmerciler AŞ was delivered to an East African country, shipping data has shown.

Katmerciler announced in 2019 that it had received the first export order for the Hızır from an African customer it did not identify, saying it was worth USD20.7 million.
The company announced the delivery of the first batch of vehicles on 20 July, when it tweeted photographs showing 15 Hızırs waiting to be loaded on to a ro-ro cargo ship at a port that could be identified as Mersin in Turkey. It said the vehicles were now on their way to Africa, without revealing their destination.
The ro-ro cargo ship seen in the photographs could be identified as Jolly Cobalto (IMO: 9668960), which AIS tracking data showed left Mersin on 18 July. It stopped at Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, an unlikely destination for Turkish armoured vehicles painted green, before heading to Djibouti, where military vehicles destined for Ethiopia are typically offloaded.
