“A prototype, which was jointly developed by Turkey’s FNSS and Indonesia’s PT Pindad, is already in Indonesia and a second one is being assembled at PT-Pindad’s facilities in Bandung,” an FNSS source told Jane’s at the Defence Services Asia (DSA) 2018 exhibition in Kuala Lumpur, pointing out that both vehicles will take part in the upcoming tests.
“The successful completion of the qualification process should lead to a government-to-government contract for serial production of the platform,” he said, adding that delivery of the first vehicles is expected to take place within two years of the contract being signed.
