Turkish Company Otokar awarded a new contract value $63.2 million for Arma 6x6 armored vehicle.
Turkish leading and largest privately owned tactical vehicles manufacturer Otokar has been awarded a $63.2 million contract for its new 6x6 tactical armoured vehicle ARMA. Deliveries are scheduled to be in 2012 and Otokar will provide spare parts and training under the contract requirements.
“This award is the second export contract for ARMA 6x6 in its first year” says Serdar Gorguc, Otokar’s General Manager. “As the leading designer and exporter of armoured vehicles in Turkey, we continue to grow in defence industry with local and international orders. Representing the Turkish defence industry in world arena with our well-known armoured vehicles, we continue to execute contracts abroad.
We are proud to sign the second contract although it has only been twelve months since we introduced the ARMA. This award demonstrates that ARMA is the new generation answer and ideal concept and design for upcoming threats, and expectations of modern armed forces.
This second contract which is signed quite soon after the presentation of the vehicle to users is a strong indicator that ARMA will be one of the flagships of Otokar’s product range.”
