Although one thing I don't understand is why they don't copy the compact style of MII3 APC... It can carry 10 troops against WhAP's 9 while being of much smaller size.

Today we have the option to place a unmanned automatic-turret (that keeps all am out of crew-compartment) operated by the commander.

Even if we replaced the 300hp engine with a 500-600hp one it could still be a 6×6, while carrying upto 12 troops.

Not to mention being very versatile, carrying a mortar team with lots of rounds, it could open the top hatch, shoot & scoot.

Turkey no longer able to make armoured vehicles due to embargo

The suspension of arms sales to Turkey by a number of European governments in condemnation of the country’s October military offensive into Syria is taking a toll on Turkish defence companies, Dünya newspaper reported on Monday.

Dünya pointed to Finland in particular, whose arms embargo against the Turkish government after its troops entered Syria to attack the Kurdish forces, has directly affected Oyak, a pension fund owned by the Turkish military.

Finnish Prime Minister Antti Rinne decreed in October that the government would not approve any new arms export permits to Turkey.

Finland does not sell weapons or munitions to Turkey. All of its exports are comprised of armours and protective materials or equipment.

Almost all of the $ 17 million worth of defence equipment sold by Finland to Turkey are produced by Finnish company Miilux, which Turkey’s OYAK pension fund purchased a majority stake of 70 percent in October, Dünya said.

The goal with the purchase was to place a Turkish company at the helm of steel armour production, in which Turkey is entirely reliant on imports and officials were eyeing a facility with a13,000-tonne production capacity in the country’s western province of Manisa, it said.

Miilux has an expansive customer portfolio in Turkey, including BMC, Otokar, Nurol, Katmerciler and Roketsan.

BMC CEO Ethem Sancak, during a recent television interview, confirmed that the embargo by Finland has rendered the production of armoured vehicles virtually impossible for them, Dünya said.

Findland’s current government policy maintains that the country should not export arms to countries engaged in conflict, which effectively means it will not grant new export licenses to Turkey. The country’s defence ministry is also reviewing previously granted licenses in a possible move to revoke them.

Following the embargo, Finland has changed government, with a female-led governing coalition stepping into office in December, Dünya said.

However the embargo placed on Oyak and thus Turkey, has prevented the country from taking a strong step to remedy the situation, it added.

That must be an eye opener to us.
IMPORT from WEST especially Europe leaving France is not good at all.
I do hope government is moving away from these assholes untill RIGHT WINGER don't take the control over their countries.

VT-4 Heavy IFV

An copy of the heavy #Russian BMP T-15 Armata is being created in #China. A heavy infantry fighting vehicle will be created in China , which is estimated by many experts as an analogue of #Russian T-15 Armata.

It is based on the chassis of VT-4 MBT. Similar, Heavy IFV can be created based on Arjun chassis as well, if the army shows interest.
In fact DRDO intends to create a Universal Combat platform, with a tank and heavy IFV.

It proves that their BTR 4 were tin cans. Seriously doubt Ukrainians products now.

Oh man you took it to heart. My comment was based on performance of units in Iraq and Donbass. I guess crew preparedness has also to be factored 🤣

BTR-4 are tincans... like they are supposed to be.
They are lightly armoured troop carried wheeled vehicles. They were never meant to withstand heavy weaponary or explosives.
