    Qatar placed order for not only 100 Altay T2 but also 20 Firtina-II self propelled howitzers and 50 Kirpi-II MRAP bro. Altay T1 is in serial production phase and 40 unit will be delivered to Turkish Land Forces within 2 years. By 2021, BMC’s giant land vehicle manufacturing facility will start its production activities in Sakarya and The factory will not only serve for Turkish Army but also many other friendly nations from tracked to wheeled armored vehicles, tanks, turbo-diesel engines, transmission, civilian bus, trucks, missile carrier vehicles and fast train system. At present, Tanks will be produced in Arifiye Army’s own factory until new one activated for production.

    same happened to Argenitina. There German submarines and french missiles stopped working in a war against UK...

    Just recently US said they will stop supply parts to Iraq and also it was wellknown they they made it hard for Egypt for parts... Egypt still doesnt have BWR missiles..

    The problem with Egypt is Israel, not the U.S. Also, its probably because Iraqi soldiers have no clue how to use their equipment effectively even against Terrorist groups wielding RPGs.

    Israel controls the U.S. arms deals in the middle east and not the U.S. and you would believe since with a flick of the. Again, the Iraqis should not be armed with American equipment since they frequently lose equipment to foreign countries like Iran for example and give valuable military equipment to other nations. Turkey has control on arms deals and conditions like for example if NATO pressured them or threatened sanctions they would stop supplying parts and logistics for say the Altay tank.

    do you understand that Iran taking abrams tank doesnt make Iran to produce it locally.. You talk from media language without understanding it..
    Imagine Saudis pay more to trump like president in the future and non of Qataris technology will work in case of attack..
    on the other hand, they own 49% of the company who makes Turkish Tank. why would they pay outside?
    the last and funny part is nobody even know which tank cost how much. how easy its for you to make price for tanks out of air... im really impressed...

    You were saying? "It is no coincidence that specialists regard the Karrar as some kind of a copy of the Russian-made T-90MS, the most advanced modification of the T-90 platform", according to retired Maj. Gen. Vladimir Bogatyrev, chair of the Board of the Russian National Association of Retired Military Officers. He also added that "It is based on the T-72 platform, but it also has something from the American Abrams and M-60 tanks. Some elements are borrowed from the M-48 and the British Chieftain tank. They took all these elements and tried to design their own tank."[14]

    Any make-up on Altay is welcome!

    So, Altay is the new monster of Arabian desert. Hopefully, we see how it performs against Qatar's mostly "western" rivals.

    I think I get what you are saying. Turkey will have sanctions if NATO or the US threatens sanctions they will cave in which kill Turkey's economy if sanctions are placed on it as seen before. The only place where you can go with no sanctions are indigenous even if Turkish members claim they "won't" have sanctions on vehicles they are unaware of the contracts details and unaware of the future.
