Arma 6x6

Info
Manufacturer: OTOKAR Otobus Karoseri Sanayi A.S.  
Product type: Armoured Vehicles  
Name: Wheeled armoured personnel carrier  

The 6.4 m long, 2.7 m wide and 2.2 m high ARMA 6x6 variant has an 19 tonnes combat weight and carries a driver, commander and eight dismounts in its fully NBC protected hull. The vehicle is C-130 air transportable in standard configuration.

ARMA's front two axles are steerable enabling it to make a turning radius of 7.8 m and the vehicle rides on independent hydropneumatic suspension, offering respectable off-road mobility. Tyre run flat capability and central inflation system is supplied as standard. It can negotiate a 45-degree approach and departure angles leading onto 60 per cent inclines and 40 per cent side-slopes. It can also cross 1.2 m wide trenches and climb over 60 cm obstacles.

A 450 hp water-cooled turbo diesel capable of running on F-34 or F-54 fuel drives the wheels through an automatic gearbox and single-speed transfer box, giving it a top speed of 105 km/h and a power/weight ratio of 24.3 hp/tonne.

This also powers the onboard 24 V DC electrical system, which incorporates two maintenance-free 125 Ah batteries and a 3.3 kW converter.

The engine is located at the right front of the vehicle, allowing a comparably high internal volume to be efficiently and ergonomically used for the crew and mission equipments. With this internal layout, all the personnel especially the commander can keep eye contact continuously among each other.

6x6 ARMA can be driven in 6x6 or 6x4 modes depending upon the terrain conditions. The vehicle is amphibious and driven by 2 hyraulically driven propellors in water allowing a high seagoing performance with a pivot turn capability. ARMA's ballistic and anti-mine protection is provided by armoured monocoque steel hull and all personnel is seated on anti- mine seats.

ARMA vehicle's development started in 2006 as a company funded development project for home and export markets. Development studies from concept design till the end of test phases including qualification and validation processes, detailed design, computer aided engineering studies, are performed by Otokar.
