The Kazakh subsidiary of Turkish defense giant Aselsan said on Thursday that they will soon be exporting their products to Uzbekistan for the first time.
Tarik Ziya Kaboglu, the CEO of Kazakhstan Aselsan Engineering (KAE), told Anadolu Agency that they expect their exports to rise after the Uzbek army sees the quality of their products.
Kaboglu said that Turkey and Kazakhstan co-founded the company in 2011 and that it began operations in late 2013 with a $44 million investment.
In the last four years, investments in the KAE factory in the capital Astana rose to $50 million.
"As part of the road map we laid out, the manufacturing of electro-optical products and modernization of military platforms have been planned. These include T72 tanks, M17 helicopter modernization, shooting platforms for Igla low-altitude missiles, reconnaissance and surveillance, artillery fire, and stabilized weapon systems," Kaboglu said.
"There are also plans to make radios. The road map we prepared was confirmed by Kazakhstan’s Defense Ministry," he stated.
He added that the 12.7 mm SARP stabilized weapon system was integrated into the Kazakhstan Paramount Engineering company armored vehicle Arlan, and vehicles equipped with this weapon were delivered to Kazakhstan last year.
"Thirty-six vehicles were tested in the field by the Kazakh army and added to their inventory", added Kaboglu.
