Dozens of Turkish armored vehicles delivered to Ukraine


Ankara delivered five dozen Kirpi armored vehicles with a 4x4 wheel arrangement to Kyiv. This is reported by Ukrainian information resources, referring to the deputy from the ruling party "Servant of the People" Yuri Misyagin and specifying that the delivered technique already sent to the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.


The operational group of Ukrainian troops "Kakhovka" confirmed that Kirpi "went to the front." At the same time, the received 50 Kirpi units are only a part of the ordered 200 such armored vehicles. The remaining 150 MRAPs (armored vehicles with enhanced mine protection) Turkey promises to transfer to Ukraine in the near future.

It should be added that Kirpi was developed and manufactured by the Turkish automotive company BMC Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. Such armored vehicles are in service with the Turkish army. The MRAP has five small arms embrasures and four bulletproof windows on each side of the compartment. It can be armed with a 7,62-mm or 12,7-mm machine gun (shielded machine gunner's seat on the roof), or a remote-controlled module.

MRAP has STANAG 4569 armor protection, empty weight is 16 tons, and full weight is 19,7 tons. It can carry 13 military personnel, including a crew of 3 people. The maximum speed is 105 km / h, the cruising range is 800 km.

    As soon as Erdogan blocked the offensive in Syria, the answer immediately followed. Putin's best friend V.V. We'll have to repeat the lesson of disobedience, and not wait for the plane to be shot down.

    Now, for the grain sold, the Ukrainian government will buy more armored vehicles. So it was necessary to open ports for bulk carriers in Ukraine?. Money does not smell, receiving for grain from the Russian Federation, but the armored vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will bring death to Russian fighters - they will not count in losses for funerals. from the profits for such a blood business ...

    Is R. Erdogan double-dealing?
    If he blocks the admission of the Scandinavians to NATO, he will be forgiven!
    And if not... ;-(

    The armored car is not a Mercedes. He needs daily routine maintenance, scarce parts, components and assemblies.

    And we seemed to be friends with this fucking Turkey. Here is the answer from Erdogan. Some dirty tricks from this Turkey. You don't have to trust anyone and help. Everyone pays the same for oil and gas in rubles.

      When they were really friends with Turkey, there was no more situational partnership, and Turkey has been supplying weapons to our enemies for a long time.

    We have never been friends with the Turks. There has always been a state of armed neutrality. And, if the genius of all times and peoples helped Ataturk, then this is from an understanding of the benefits of Russia.
