Turkish-made armored vehicles boost Qatar's security

More than 400 vehicles, produced by Turkish firm Nurol Makina, active in Qatar's security.

Türkiye-based defense firm Nurol Makina has manufactured 400 armored vehicles to contribute to Qatar’s security.

The leading armored land vehicle manufacturer participated in the eighth edition of the Doha International Maritime Defense Exhibition and Conference (DIMDEX 2024) in Qatar, showcasing its new tactical vehicle, named ‘Ejder Yalcin,’ which is used by the Qatar Armed Forces.

Anil Karel, the deputy general manager of Nurol Makina, told Anadolu that they started contracts for the supply of vehicles to meet the needs of various security and military units in Qatar in 2017.

He said they cooperated with the Qatari defense firm Barzan Holdings, and currently, there are more than 400 vehicles working in different units in Qatar.

Karel mentioned that they offer not only vehicles but also system solutions, as the vehicles include weapons and systems provided by their cooperation with another Turkish defense firm Aselsan, saying: "They are very satisfied with the Ejder TOMA (Intervention Vehicle Against Social Incidents) vehicles they purchased especially for the World Cup, as it was very useful in ensuring that the organization was held safely.

"Apart from this, other army units were also very satisfied with the vehicles they used."

The firm opened a maintenance and repair center in 2023, which includes the establishment, operation, training, and transfer of the mature system to the user, he said.

He mentioned that this project was the biggest one that Türkiye signed in terms of budget and numbers, and that there are vehicles waiting to be delivered still.

Karel said his firm works all over the world as their vehicles operate in more than 22 countries in four different continents.
