The Turkish military on Thursday received the first five new ZMA-15 Zırhlı armored infantry fighting vehicles.

The ZMA-15 Zırhlı is an armored combat vehicle developed by a partnership between Turkey’s state-controlled military electronics company Aselsan and armored vehicles maker FNSS. It is an upgraded version of the ACV-15 armored vehicle from Turkey manufacturer FNSS.

The Zırhlı has been designed as a multi-role armored vehicle that combines fire strength and maneuverability, and armour to support infantry in the assault.


In the first phase of the upgrade program, Aselsan will modernize 133 vehicles, lengthening their life span and survivability and armed with a 30mm autonomous turret.

Other upgrades on the ZMA-15 include automatic target tracking, a laser warning system, a close-distance surveillance system, a modern cruise system, mine-protected seats, increased ballistic protection and anti-mine protection.

Time to get one of these from either China or Turkey at least with TOT. We need one wheeled and one tracked APC with TOT either from China, Turkey, or Europe.

Hamza in real sense is an MRAP not an APC or an IFV. Although I expect Cavalier group to come up with 6 x 6 and 8 x 8 wheeled APC as seen in photos I posted.
sarkar, reassess Hamza. MRAP are always 4x4 and light as possible. anything greater than 4x4 like Hamza is in the APC category. What's the difference between MRAP and APC? not much. MRAP is an Armoured Personnel Carrier.

Pakistan needs wheeled 6 x 6 and 8 x 8 IFV and also tracked ones. Our best source are either Turkey or China

There is no definition of a MRAP that says it MUST be 6x6.

MRAPs (mine-resistant, ambush-protected) tend to be faster and more agile than APCs and IFVs.

They're purpose built to deal with ambushes from insurgents and special forces. APCs and IFVs are not.

Which is better because you can get them as upgrade packages

They're purpose built to deal with ambushes from insurgents and special forces. APCs and IFVs are not.

They also tend to roll over at high speeds and can not carry heavy weapons which makes them much less useful in conventional war.

If you want to get the best bang for your buck, I think this is the best solution for Pakistan:

Incredible mobility and firepower at low operating costs

There's even an electric engine option.

You get all the advantages of an MRAP with heavy weapons.

Mine resistant, CBRN resistant, all the bells and whistles.
