The modernization is expected to be mainly carried out through local and foreign products (except for post-soviet countries). First BRDM - armored reconnaissance vehicles, as well as BTR-60 and BTR-70 BTR-70 armored personnel carriers will be replaced by modern and high-level protection vehicles.

At the first stage of modernization, priority was given to Cobra - wheeled armored vehicles produced by Turkey. These vehicles have proven themselves in terms of sustainability and maneuverability during the tests in Azerbaijan.

As a part of the modernization of the motor pool, extra Cobra vehicles, as well as other models of vehicles and military vehicles are expected to be purchased from Turkey. Moreover, Azerbaijan is also interested in Arma, Pars and Ajdar armored personnel carriers produced by Turkish firms.

In parallel, it is expected to produce military vehicles with Turkish firms and “Paramount Group” company of South Africa and increase the volume of production.
