Otokar Arma 8x8. The bar is getting raised.

The wheeled 8x8 market is heating up and the Otokar Arma 8x8 might be the best of the sleeper vehicles out there.  Consider this.  Turkey (which probably should be considered one of the BRIC countries) has a robust defense industry, they're supporting it to the hilt and they're more than willing to team up with any and everyone willing to advance their state of the art.  With comps in S. Africa and the UAE, you can bet that the price will be competitive and the armor protection up to snuff.

Not much info is available on the turret but it reminds me of a German offering.  I'll try to find out more.


  1. The turret is essentially the turret of the german Puma IFV.

  2. that's my thinking but i don't remember seeing any teaming agreement to make that happen. similar problems sometimes develop similar solutions. i just want to be sure before i make that declaration.
