The Armed Forces of the Philippines may get an armored amphibious combat earthmover called the Kunduz from Turkey in 2021.

This was after the AFP signed a deal with Turkish defense firm FNSS, company CEO Nail Kurt told Turkey’s Anadolu Agency.

Kurt said the sale of the earthmover to the Philippines will be Kunduz’s first export (http://northboundasia.com/afp-to-acquire-amphibious-combat-earthmover-from-turkey/).

The Kunduz is an amphibious, armored, tracked, combat earthmover designed to prepare river banks during river-crossing missions.

Its capabilities include bulldozing, rough grading, excavating, hauling, and scraping.
