    Pakistan's strained relations with the West have led to further deepening of defence cooperation with Türkiye.

    In this context, Pakistan is interested in supplying Turkish-made guided anti-tank systems. Joint production is also on the agenda, Caliber.Az reports, citing X page of Defence Turk.

    As reported, it is also possible that Islamabad will participate in the development programme of the 5th generation KAAN fighter.

    Reports published in August this year indicate that Pakistan is willing to participate in TUSAŞ's KAAN 5th generation fighter development programme. Around 200 Pakistani officials and engineers were reportedly involved in the development of the fighter programme even before the two governments decided to formalise the programme.

    In 2018, a contract was signed with Türkiye's STM for medium modernisation of one of the Pakistan Navy's three Agosta 90B (Khalid class) diesel-electric submarines. Pakistan is also among the first buyers of Baykar's KEMANKEŞ cruise missile, equipped with an artificial intelligence-enabled autopilot system. Pakistan's dependence on Türkiye to maintain and modernise its weapons systems has increased over the past few years due to strained relations with the West.

    UMTAS

    The long-range anti-tank missile system (UMTAS) is a high-precision anti-tank missile system designed primarily for use on attack helicopters. The missile can operate day/night and in all weather conditions due to its infrared imaging homing head. Thanks to the radio frequency data link between the launcher - the missile can acquire a target before or after firing, and has "shot-forget" or "refresh fire" flight modes that allow target/spot selection. Precise guidance and control capabilities and an armour-piercing tandem warhead make the UMTAS missile an effective weapon system against armoured targets.
