I realized, while writing this, that those pictures could not have been from IDEF... 

 

anyway, it’s nearing the end of April, and my excitement for close-up pictures of a developing arms industry’s toys is rising! 

 

Good luck and have fun while there! And don’t get arrested for getting to close to the vehicles :)

Can anyone explain what in their opinion a guided missile offers to a tank, that would be important enough to eat up some of the space for HE-MP and APFSDS shells?

 

IMO, the maximum level of guidance should be minor unpowered, wing/fin-enabled course correction similar to the one done for mortars or artillery shells. But is it sufficient within the kinetic envelope of unguided tank shells?

nope,this version at IDEF is the one which is going to be produced by BMC. first 150-250 will use MTU engine and renk transmission and afterwards turkish engines/transmission(so we hope, which are still under developement)

 

they even have an export order from Qatar (OK BMC is 49% Qatar owned! no suprise here!)

first 150-250

Any idea about the rate at which they'll be produced? That number can convincingly be argued to be anywhere from 1 year (150 at very high rate, excluding prototypes), to 10 years (250 at low rate plus a year or two for production prototype testing) of production line time.

On that note, how many tanks is the Turkish military looking to replace with the Altay when all is said and done?

After a little bit research

İn 2020 15 tanks will be produced

and in 2021 another 25

After these 40 vehicles the new ones will get domestic engine/transmission

The first batch of 250 will be delivered very quickly. Qatar has also ordered 100 Altay s.

So planning/wishing looks good,but we have to wait for next year how realistic that will be. 

Complete 1000 are planned in 4 batches with each batch new version like a la Armata is planned.

50 tanks per year sounds like a good rate. You keep production running for at least 20 years and you still get to re-equip units fairly quickly.

5 years per batch is also a good amount of time to develop new kit for the tank and certify it. 

 

Deviate too little from the 50 mark and you get odd numbers of tanks per year. Deviate too much and you get messy development. So 50 makes sense.
