Thanks for the info Nutuk! you've done an amazing job covering IDEF for us waffers, who sometimes can't appreciate!

And guys, would you take it easy please? It's a bloody first time hovercraft made by a Turkish firm! A maintanance firm ffs!

IMO it's a message that shows some of our capabilities. whether it's aesthetically pleasing or not, shouldn't be a problem...

This is just a small hovercraft designed by the military factory (not a company) on request of the landforces. It will be used in marshland areas.

The next steps however is bigger hovercrafts, from stability aspect it is easier to design large hovercrafts than small ones.

Gayreeks should worry about the amphibic capabilities the Turks are developing, just think about fast island occupation, river crossings.

Worry about your chitty Russian hovercrafts you can not even maintain and have to canibalize 2 of the 4.

All that money? LOL, the small hovy costs 40.000 lira = ~$27.000, just a small car price.

they kinda look sexy....

i must admitt though

the camo is under rated

nato camo is over rated

turks should choose iwo jima camo for all soldiers, best camo

What I deduced at IDEF is that Turkey will go indigenous also on hovercrafts

For the LPD project 2-4 LCAC are needed

Norwegian KNM STORM

PS! P960 is Norwegian KNM SKJOLD, not Finland



"Engine failure causes the new MTB hardly gets to sail, and certainly not at full speed.
The vessels can not withstand the vibrations from the new gas turbines to ensure progress.
Shaking causes the bust and spare parts must be replaced by far fewer hours than planned"

I don't care how it looks when it's a significant achievement on behalf of our military industry.

On the other hand they should call it "Kurbaga" coz it looks like a toad!

its nothing special, a small hovercraft.

If it was a huge like the old soviet things it would be worth to mention.

otherwise what do you want to conquer with such a toy which can hardly transport 4 soldiers with equipment..

lets meet again in the re-match!
