‘Different types of Otokar military vehicles are successfully serving the requirements in the Gulf Region with different users since early 2000s. GCC countries are particularly important for Otokar. With the establishment of Otokar Land Systems in 2016, we became much closer to our present and potential users in this region. In the following period, Otokar Land Systems’ joint venture company Al Jasoor signed a significant 8x8 armoured vehicle contract for UAE Armed Forces. We aim at extending collaborations and also look for new opportunities’, said Serdar Görgüç, Otokar General Manager.
‘While developing our land systems products, our first priority is to meet the needs and expectations of our users considering present and future threats. In the last decade, we have allocated 8.5% of our revenues for our R&D activities. Our combat-proven vehicles are actively used in conflict zones in very different geographies and extreme climatic conditions. Currently, more than 32 000 Otokar vehicles are operated in over 35 countries. We believe that our vehicles serving worldwide are the most important reference for our potential users’, he added.
