Not only the army of Russia and China buy the products of the Belarusian engineering new attack missile complex “KAAN” (“Khan”) is tested in the Turkish army. The rockets are on a modern wheeled chassis of the Minsk wheel tractor plant, says “Belsat”.

Boots for “Hana”

This week, the Department of defense industry of Turkey published in the “Twitter” video of the new rocket launchers. The vehicle carries a ballistic missile, each of which contains 470 kilograms of explosives.

The complex was developed by the Turkish company “Roketsan”. The main task of the combat system – attack, large amounts of manpower and armored vehicles of the enemy, as well as other important objectives such as airfields, headquarters, positions of defense.

“In some cases, this ballistic missile can be an alternative to dot by air bombing”, says the website DefenceBlog.Com.

“KAAN” – export version of the complex – has a range of fire up to 280 km. According to some reports, missiles for the Turkish army (the complex in this embodiment is called Bora) will have greater range. For guidance and adjustment of flight of the missile uses satellites and inertial navigation systems.

Uses a combination of the famous Belarusian MZKT-7930 with the wheel formula 8×8.

The danger from the East

MZKT – the former main supplier of heavy wheeled chassis for Soviet, and now Russian army. It was on various modifications of the MZKT chassis are Russian operatively-tactical complexes “Iskander”, coastal missile systems “Bal” and “Bastion”, container missile systems “Club-M”, anti-aircraft missile systems s-400 and s-500 missile complexes of strategic appointment “the poplar-M”.

Focus on a single client carries quite a large risk: the client, using the dependence of the plant from yourself, can try to capture a useful asset, and then to transfer the plant to their territory, to destroy the production and development center in Belarus.

Moscow has been trying to buy this important plant in 2012-2013, and tried to twist the arms of Belarusians unofficial ban on the purchase of products MWTP. Eastern neighbours threatened to use instead chassis produced by KAMAZ and UralAZ.

However, the Belarusian technological “treasure” and did not fall into the wrong hands. To create competition chassis Minsk in Russia has failed so far – for the new missile and combat systems the Russians require high-quality specialized Belarusian platform.

Why do we Turks?

Belarus is not the first year is committed to the diversification of military-technical cooperation to reduce their dependence on Russia. And last but not least it concerns the MZKT – the “family silver” of our country, which should not fall into the wrong hands.

So, last year the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko gave his army a new mobile radar stations that are on the chassis “Volat”.

Put your radar on Belarusian chassis also proposed Azerbaijan. Baku buys in Belarus missile systems of volley fire “Polonaise”, which are also on the chassis MZKT.

Involved in cooperation with MWTP and China. The first joint venture with the Chinese Belarusian factory established in 1998. Belarusian developments, which were partially localized Chinese, regularly can be seen on the parades of the Chinese army, during which show new samples of rocket equipment on the wheeled MZKT.

Here comes a new danger – how not to lose their technological advantage over the Chinese character the ability to copy almost everything. But in any case have several clients with different interests is always better than just one that tries to dictate terms.
