A new Armoured Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAAV) could potentially be the answer for a replacement for Indonesia’s AAV7 vehicles. FNSS is developing and producing the new vehicles and the first prototype is expected to be displayed in public soon.
The new Turkish amphibious armoured vehicle is being developed to meet a requirement of the Turkish Naval Forces Command.
FNSS is to deliver a total of 27 vehicles to the Turkish Navy, including 23 personnel carriers, 2 command and control vehicles and 2 recovery vehicles.
Armoured Amphibious Assault Vehicles are launched from landing helicopter dock (LHD) close to the coast and must rapidly deploy infantry units to land with minimum delay.
Once on land, they operate side by side with other armoured vehicles. amphibious assault vehicles need to exhibit superior performance both at sea and on land.
