Military designers from Turkey are working to create a new tank "Altay". Domestic experts agree that the fighting machine is difficult to compare with the "Armata" engineering properties of Turkish "tank of the future" a little short of the T-90A 2004 release.
Turkish designers are working on a new tank "Altai", which they called a "tank of the future". Domestic experts have compared the properties and distinctive features of the Turkish war machine and "Armata".
It turns out that the Altai lags far behind modern national research: as Turkish tank level comparable only to that of Russian war machines of the last generation. So, it is inferior in performance to even the modernized T-90A, which was discontinued back in 2011.
Besides all this, the Turks had to use the support of other countries in creating a war machine, for the following reasons they have no experience in tank building. In the end they managed to create something similar to a simplified version of the South Korean tank "Black Panther".
It is expected that the main instrument installed on the combat vehicle, is an analogue of the German guns 120mm L-55. Therefore, the tank will be much weaker Russian "Armata", which is an instrument A, according to "National newspaper."
Add that Ankara has started cooperation in the field of tank development, and with Kiev. "Ukroboronprom" expects the implementation of joint programs with the firm Aselsan.
For a start the company will be engaged in research projects on modernization of Ukrainian tanks. Later, Turkish experts will improve other weapons, even artillery and armoured personnel carriers. For example, it will affect the Turkish system AKKOR. The device allows you to protect tanks against missile attacks and can be mounted on other types of armored vehicles.
