🇹🇷#Türkiye: On 23 April, the Turkish Armed Forces inaugurated the first two #Altay tanks for trials. Due to significant changes in the design, the tank is now referred to as the ‘New Altay’.
The tests of the #Altay tank by the 🇹🇷#TAF are expected to be completed in 2024. In 2025, mass production of the tank will begin with the Korean powerpack, and in the second half of 2026 production is planned with the domestic Batu powerpack.
The missiles have maximum speed of Mach 4, range of 25km and have a 32kg warhead.
Missiles were now housed in compact launch containers, thus eliminating the need for constant loading onto launch rails and stacking on transport/loading vehicles. SURNCZ radar was used for guidance
Since 2014, there have been many vehicle modifications on both sides on the #Ukrainian battlefield. One of the most frequently modified vehicles is the MT-LB, originally intended as an artillery tractor.
