Do you have a translation of the article or can you outline what it says?
Despite the advances and the technology that Turkish industry has acquired in resent years it seems quite unprobable that they would produce a completely new tank. I think there has been a quite lucrative offer for the co production of the K-2.... seems much more probable.

There are many concept designs around one even looking like the M1, the Turkish tank will look like a K2 if not a direct copy.

After competing against the Leclerc and Leopard 2, the K2 is finally seeing its first export customer, Turkey. In June, 2007, South Korea and Turkey have successfully negotiated for an arms export deal contract worth KRW₩500,000,000,000 (approximately USD$540,000,000) which will license the design of the K2, as well as exporting 30 KT-1 trainer planes, to Turkey.

The license deal with Turkey includes the armor technology used on K2 that is to be incorporated to Turkey's own indigenous future main battle tank. Four prototypes are expected to be built by Otokar by 2010, with armaments and sub-systems being provided by ASELSAN and engine by MTU Friedrichshafen.
Turkish MBT will look like the K2 Black Panther

How many varied subsystems does Aselsan envisage to use in the new Turkish tank? As far as I know there is only one complete control and electronics system Aselsan has developed for the new tank.

Now, considering that there will be a multitude of prototypes (4) to be built by Otokar will that mean those 4 prototypes will be 4 same samples of the one design or alternative structural designs with the same Aselsan subsystem for testing?

If the later is true than I would say we could see a new tank that is not only different in subsystems but also structurally different tank than the Korean K2BP. With the many different design ideas flying around civil and military defence/technology circles in Turkiye, the probability of a mainly indigenous design outcome seems very likely.

Cheers.

I like what is happening in Turkey right now a huge defense industry is going to pop out, this should have happened years ago because Turkey spends $15 billion U.S dollars on there military and for years all that money went outside to U.S and Germany now it is time to spend it inside the country, when we build our own tanks other nations like Turkic ones east of Turkey will be interested because there inventory is old Soviet, tanks and they would love to have a Turkish option then Turkey can make up the development costs. Turkey should start building there own airplanes now because they have many aircraft engineers graduate every year and they just end up jobless or going to Airbus or one of the numerous American ones there is a group of them in the F-35 production (as I hear from various military people in Turkey) Turkey could gather them up, build an airplane to what they want, they could then export it to Turkic countries Pakistan, even Israel, Korea, Japan, Australia every nation that got shut in the face to buy the F-22, and then they could make up the development costs then they can even start on passenger airline airplanes. This should have happened in the early 90's, and this is just 2 different parts of the defense industry tanks and airplanes imagine the rest!

Turkey GDP is last I heard 15th and Swedes who build the Gripen is some where in the late 20's and Turkey has a huge heavy industries sector that is growing everyday. They build the F-16 in Turkey and some parts are designed by Turkish companies, and these parts are better then the American counter parts. We are well prepared to build an airplane.
