FNSS is attending Indo Defence Expo & Forum 2022 which held in Jakarta, Indonesia, between 2 – 5 November. The 9th Indo Defence opened its doors at JIExpo Kemayoran. FNSS exhibited the Marine Assault Vehicle (MAV, ZAHA) with CAKA Remote Weapon Station (RWS) which is purposely designed for MAV, in its booth in Hall A-A005a. KAPLAN MT (HARIMAU) Medium Tank, developed jointly by FNSS and PT Pindad as part of a Defence Industry Cooperation Agreement signed between Turkey and Indonesia, participated in the Military Live Demonstration that taken place at the outdoor area of the Expo.
The Marine Assault Vehicle (MAV) is the latest technology amphibious vehicle designed by FNSS to meet amphibious operational requirements. During the beach landing phase of an amphibious operation, these vehicles are launched from landing helicopter docks (LHD) and are able to rapidly cover the distance between the vessel and the shore, allowing marine units to land under armour protection. A unique hull design and powerful water jets make the MAV highly mobile in the water with a speed of 7 knots, as well as on land, at 70 km/h maximum speed.
The MAV fire power is provided by the purposely designed CAKA dual remote-controlled turret that can be armed with a 12.7 mm MG and a 40 mm AGL. Designed to support dual operations based on their mission requirements, armoured amphibious assault vehicles need to ensure superior capabilities both at sea and on land. Compared to similar systems, the MAV can be considered superior in number of transported personnel, level of ballistic and mine protection, new generation remote controlled turret and performances on land and afloat.
