According to the source, negotiations with two Turkish and one Israeli military hardware manufacturers are about to be completed and agreements will soon be signed to launch production.

Under the State Program on Defense Industry Development, Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Defense Industry seeks to build tracked fighting vehicles, self-propelled bridges and armored military trucks on the body of T-54 and T-55 tanks which were decommissioned from the national army’s arsenal.

The assembly infrastructure will be built in the Ministry of Defense’s tank repair plant and other engineering plants. Besides, fighting vehicles designed by local specialists will also be considered after the production facilities are ready.

Azerbaijan already assemblies matador and marauder armored mine protected vehicles together with the South African Paramount Group.
