KAPLAN MT Medium Tank Project was initiated with G2G Agreement between Presidency of Defence Industries of Türkiye (SSB) and Ministry of Defence of Indonesia. In 2015, a corporation agreement was signed between DG Defence Potential of Indonesia and SSB in order to develop 2 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 completed the production of the first batch of vehicles with the serial production configuration.
The vehicles, developed within the scope of the Project were presented to the representatives from Indonesia Army, Indonesian Ministry of Defence, and PT Pindad management, with the attendance of Defense Industry Presidency of Türkiye and Ministry of National Defence of Türkiye. 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 delivered to Indonesian Army after the final acceptance stage.
