Hezarfen Parachute Simulator, developed by HAVELSAN to train commando and special forces personnel, is exported to Malaysia. The simulator will be exported for the first time.


Malaysian company Widad Business Group (WBG) will cooperate with HAVELSAN to meet the needs of the Malaysian Armed Forces. In this context, the group aims to strengthen Malaysia's armed forces and significantly reduce the cost of training.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the parties was signed at the Asian Defence Services Fair (DSA 2022).

Within the cooperation framework, WBG will procure six paratrooper training simulators used by Turkish commandos and special forces. The simulator provides year-round training for personnel while reducing costs.

HAVELSAN General Manager Mehmet Akif Nacar stated that they actively follow various projects for the military, public and private sectors in Malaysia and established a regional office in Kuala Lumpur. Nacar said, "Malaysia is an important hub for HAVELSAN in the Southeast Asian region, so we are delighted to have found a reliable partner WBG to expand our reach and develop our ties in the country."
