The Turkish “KAPLAN” is ready for Indonesian army

The “Kaplan” Medium Tank (MT), jointly developed by PT Pindad (Indonesia) and by FNSS (Turkey, successfully passed the required qualification tests in Indonesia.

PT Pindad has conducted a live-firing demonstration of its latest Medium Tank (MT) on 27 August.

The MT is fitted with the latest generation turret from CMI Defence: the Cockerill 3105 turret equipped with a high-pressure 105mm Cockerill gun coupled to an autoloader. The two-man turret and gun were developed in-house by CMI. The gun is compatible with all NATO 105mm ammunition but can fire higher-pressure shells, smart ammunition and missiles. This turret has been designed to fit on easily air-transportable vehicles.

PT Pindad will start mass production of the MT in 2019.
