Tactical armored vehicles “Kozak” from the NGO “Practice” can be equipped with combat modules manufactured by the Turkish company Aselsan.
The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Valery Zaluzhny, paid a working visit to the Praktika Research and Production Association, which is a manufacturer of special automotive equipment.
During the meeting, the General Director of the enterprise Oleg Vysotsky told about the stages of production of the tactical armored vehicle “Kozak-2M1”, which is manufactured as part of the state defense order.
The leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was also shown a Kozak-2M1 armored vehicle with a remotely controlled SARP NSV combat module manufactured by the Turkish defense company Aselsan. The company “Practice” believes that this is a completely new solution for Ukrainian military equipment, which can significantly improve the quality of combat missions.
The Turkish edition of Savunma reports that the Turkish company Aselsan offers two types of combat modules of its own production. The company is ready to supply modules: Sarp Dual and Sarp Zafer for the armament of tactical armored vehicles “Kozak-2M1”.
Sarp Dual can be equipped with two machine guns of different calibers, 7.62 and 12.7 mm, respectively. Instead of a large-caliber machine gun, the module can be equipped with a 40 mm automatic grenade launcher.
The Sarp Zafer module can be recharged while inside the combat vehicle under the protection of armor without going outside.
