As Otokar (Hangar 3, Stand E6) is the main supplier of 4x4 tactical vehicles for the Turkish military forces, the company has invested and upgraded its production facilities by introducing the most modern manufacturing technologies, resulting in great operational success.

The company has combined its experienced engineering resources with a skilled workforce and modern CAD facilities, with the result that Otokar is now known as one of Turkey’s leading production centres for both armoured and soft-skinned 4x4 tactical wheeled vehicles. With its own armouring technology and know-how, Otokar has been successfully developing different variants of armoured vehicles at its own facilities. Otokar armoured vehicles are currently in service both in Turkey and in various forces allied to Turkey.

Otokar is one of the most highly experienced outlets of all Land Rover Defender operations in the world, as it produces more than 40 different variations of the Land Rover Defender 90, 110 and 130 types. Otokar’s plant is also capable of providing its own special conversions, such as ambulances and special box-bodied rescue vehicles for Land Rover Defenders.
