Aselsan Retrofitted M60T Tanks with FIRAT-M60T Project

Date: Issue 85 - September 2018

The modernization of a large number of M60T tanks was completed in less than a year as part of the FIRAT-M60T Project, which is conducted to more effectively protect M60T main battle tanks against anti-tank threats and terrorist elements and to provide additional capabilities to the existing systems.

As a result of the overachievement of M60T tanks in the field, which were modernized by Aselsan under the leadership of the Presidency for Defence Industries (SSB), the decision was made to modernize all M60T tanks in the inventory of the army. To this end, Contract Amendment No 1 was signed between the SSB and Aselsan.
