Domestic and national weapons provide a great advantage to Mehmetçi in operations. Turkey is preparing to use completely domestic engines in armored vehicles in the near future. Turkey has made a name for itself with its successful operations both at home and abroad. The reason for this success lies in the increasing localization rates in the defense industry.
TÜMOSAN, which is the first diesel engine manufacturer in Turkey, can produce 45 thousand tractors and 75 thousand engines per year in its factory in Konya. The facility also uses its experience in the defense industry. The company is trying to increase the local rate of motor production from 55 to 65 percent to 100 percent.
TÜMOSAN General Manager Halim Tosun gave the following information about the work carried out: “We contribute to the defense industry by working on armored vehicles, engine, transmission, axle and power group especially related to these vehicles. We think it will provide approximately 20 to 50 percent financing contribution. ”
With the studies carried out, it is aimed for Turkey to have a say in the production of tank engines in the world. – Source: Hasan M. Ağalar – TRT
