carrier was developed as a private venture by Otokar to meet the Turkish
Army requirement for amphibious wheeled armored vehicle. Development
commenced in 2007 and first vehicles with 6x6 configuration were revealed
in 2010. The Turkish Army requirement is for 336 such armored vehicles. For
this requirement the Otokar Arma is competing against FNSS Pars and Patria

claim that Otokar already received a contract for the Arma from an
undisclosed foreign country.

Russian T-55 Tank, Hagglunds BV206, Daimler Ferret Scout Car - and also a
car waiting to be crushed in the distance

tanks (or indeed any tracked vehicles) for them to use.
