Last October, Turkish defense company Otokar announced that it had signed a contract to supply 100 Arma 8×8 and Cobra II armored vehicles to an African country which it declined to name, as Army Recognition published on 28 October. This order is the first export contract for the Otokar Arma 8×8 armored vehicle to an African country, and delivery is scheduled for early 2021 and will be completed by the end of 2022.

Otokar General Manager Serdar Görgüç, said : “With this order, our Arma 8×8 vehicle will be an African passenger for the first time; it will serve in the African continent. It also makes us proud that this new order came from a country to which we have been exporting before. Our vehicles, which our user has included in his inventory…became a reference for this new order; they preferred Otokar to meet their 4×4 and 8×8 tactical wheeled armoured vehicle needs”.
