The vehicle named Shota will be presented on June 17 at the Eurosatory defence and security exhibition in Paris, Timak CEO Arjeta Puca said in a social media post.

“This prototype marks just the beginning of our military production journey, with many more exciting projects on the horizon,” Puca said.

Timak's website now features a new category of vehicles for police and military use, including explosion-proof vehicles, Light Utility SUVs for personnel and equipment transport, light tactical pickups for varied terrain, and heavy-duty carriers for large troop transport.

Timak’s initiative aligns with the Albanian government’s plans to revive the country's idled defence industry.

Established in 2016, Timak focuses on production, conversion and installation of superstructures of various vehicles, such as ambulances, fire trucks, water tankers, winter and summer road maintenance vehicles, sewage cleaning machines, pile drivers, mobile truck solutions and other similar conversions, according to its website. It has offices in Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Turkey and Montenegro.
