Currently, within the Ministry of Industry and New Technologies of the Republic of Tajikistan, a dedicated department for the development of the defense industry is operational.
The Minister of Industry and New Technologies of the Republic of Tajikistan, Sherali Kabir, has announced that in May 2023, the "Sipar Gurukh" enterprise was commissioned in Tajikistan, focusing on the assembly and installation of special military vehicles. This update comes via Sarbaz.kz referring to Аsiaplustj.
Sherali Kabir emphasized that the domestically produced armored vehicles in Tajikistan are on par with those currently manufactured by Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.
According to the minister, armoured vehicles in Tajikistan are manufactured using Canadian technologies. One of their advantages lies in the use of high-quality metal sourced from domestic resources for their wheels.
As previously reported, President Emomali Rahmon of Tajikistan inaugurated the "Sipar Group" enterprise in Tursunzade, where the assembly of special military and civilian vehicles takes place. This collaborative effort with development partners involves the initial stage of assembling and installing 17 types of special transport, with the current annual capacity of the new industrial facility set at 120 vehicles, which is anticipated to increase in the future.
The vehicles assembled at this facility will be deployed to units of the Armed Forces of the republic. Export to foreign countries is also anticipated in the future.
