Turkish company Nurol Makina signs armored vehicle deal with UzAuto

A Turkish armored carmaker on Friday signed a deal for joint production of 1,000 four-wheel drive armored vehicles with an Uzbek firm.

Nurol Makina signed the memorandum of understanding with Uzbek firm UzAuto, said a statement from the company, adding that the deal was signed alongside Uzbek President Shavkat Mirziyoyev’s landmark visit to Turkey this week, said Anadolu news agency (AA)

Under the deal, 1,000 Ejder Yalcin 4×4 tactical armored vehicles — called “Dragon” in English — will be co-produced in Uzbekistan. The deal also includes the vehicles’ sales to third countries.

The Ejder Yalcin 4×4 has a unique design, with the highest level of protection in its class, allowing the vehicle to negotiate all kinds of terrain, including off-road, said the company.
