The KAPLAN MT Medium Tank Project is based on a government MoU between the Turkish SSB procurement agency and the Ministry of Defence of Indonesia. In 2015, a corporation agreement was signed with the objective to develop two prototype vehicles. Within the scope of the project under the KAPLAN MT (HARIMAU) Medium Weight Class Tank Serial Production Long-Term Collaboration Agreement signed between FNSS Savunma Sistemleri A.Ş. and PT Pindad in 2019, FNSS has completed the production of the first batch of vehicles in serial production configuration. Following the KAPLAN MT Medium Tank Platform Production Completion Ceremony held in FNSS’ facilities, all tank platforms will be shipped to Indonesia for final turret assembly and deliveries to the Indonesian Army after final acceptance.
