New Turkish armored vehicles were unveiled for the first time Wednesday at the Doha International Maritime Defense Exhibition and Conference (DIMDEX 2018) now underway in Qatar.

Nurol Makina, a Turkish company, built the vehicles last year, later selling a number of them to Qatar.

Outfitted with rocket-launchers built by Turkey's Aselsan corporation, the vehicles weigh eight tons each and are capable of carrying loads of up to four tons.

The region's largest maritime-security and defense exhibition, DIMDEX 2018 kicked off Monday with 180 defense manufacturing firms -- from 60 countries -- taking part.

More than 30 Turkish companies are participating in this year's exhibition, which will wrap up Wednesday evening.
