Turkey’s Katmerciler said it won a contract from Kenya for 118 Hızır tactical wheeled armored 4x4 vehicles.
Kenya will be the third country in the world to acquire Katmerciler’s armored vehicles. The company aims to complete the delivery over two years, Furkan Katmerci, deputy chairperson of Katmerciler, told state-owned Anadolu Agency.
He also revealed that the company will unveil a new vehicle at the 15th International Defense Industry Fair (IDEF) in Istanbul in August.
Hızır is a 400-horsepower vehicle which provides high protection against mines and handmade explosives. It was produced for conflict conditions with high maneuverability and ballistic fortification. It was designed to perform well under conditions of intense conflict in rural and urban areas, providing high-level protection.
