Roketsan and Hyundai developed the composite armor of the Altay. It provides rather good protection against HEAT-based threats. The tank is comparable to the Leopard 2A6 in terms of overall protection.

History[edit | edit source]

Class: Main Battle Tank (Prototype)
Developed: 2008-2016
Service: N/A
Vehicles Built: 10
Operators: Turkey

The brand new prototype of the Altay Main Battle Tank represents the first Turkish indigenous tank since World War II. The decision to develop an indigenous Main Battle Tank in Turkey was based as much on prestige as it was on actual Turkish military needs. The Turkish military is perhaps the most powerful in the region, and it is only fitting that it gets its own indigenous military equipment. The first prototype of the Altay MBT (named after Fahrettin Altay, one of the heroes of the Turkish War for Independence) was shown to the public in 2011. The vehicle is formally being developed by Otokar, although the exact process is shrouded in secrecy. The vehicle is clearly inspired by western-style Main Battle Tanks, especially the K2 Black Panther. Whether it actually uses parts from the K2 is not currently known, although Hyundai participated in the Altay development process as well, designing the armor.

The estimated weight of the vehicle is approximately 65 tons and it has a crew of 4. It is armed with a MKEK-developed 120mm L/55 smoothbore gun, giving it a solid punch even against heavily armored targets. The gun is paired with a top of the line Volkan series Fire Control System and other cutting edge electronics, giving the vehicle excellent accuracy on the move as well as the hunter-killer capability. The composite armor layout is secret, although various sources claim the vehicle might actually be better protected than the K2 Black Panther, and the armor will be enhanced even further with an ERA kit. The vehicle will be able to reach a top speed of 70 km/h with its German 1500 horsepower MTU 883 engine, although future vehicles are expected to be equipped with even more powerful indigenous 1800 horsepower engines instead. The Altay is currently still in the prototype stage, but production is slated to begin in the near future. Future Altay variants are expected to feature some cutting edge components produced in Turkey and are expected to enter service in 2021.
