Nurol Makina has revamped its ILGAZ vehicle to create the ILGAZ II. The vehicle has already been sold to a foreign customer.
With its modularity, Nurol Makina’s NMS is set to bring a breath of fresh air to the land vehicles industry.
Developing the Asymmetric Warfare Tank (AHT) version of the ALTAY tank, Otokar has once again demonstrated its innovativeness.
With MIZRAK S 30, Otokar transfers the capabilities of the MIZRAK turret to 6×6 vehicles.
Otokar developed the armoured, single-cabin version of the URAL to enable the supply of essential materials, such as fuel, food and water, to units deployed in dangerous and high-risk areas.

With the PUSAT, a vehicle indigenously developed down to its engine and transmission, TÜMOSAN seeks to offer a solution that is not subject to export restrictions.
TÜMOSAN demonstrated that the engine, transmission and powertrain of a military vehicle can all be developed indigenously.
Tests concerning the ANKA UAV’s ammunition-carrying capacity were announced to the press shortly before the exhibition. At TAI’s stand, the ANKA UAV was showcased both with the ammunition payload and the SAR radar and electro-optic sensor payload.
