The Turkish defense company MKE AŞ (Makine ve Kimya Endüstrisi Anonim Şirketi) is preparing to export Yavuz self-propelled artillery systems that meet the most stringent NATO standards.
The howitzer, mounted on a modified 6×6 truck chassis, is equipped with an armored cab. Preparing the system for firing takes about a minute, and changing positions takes 2 minutes.
This 155-mm/52-caliber towed howitzer has already proven itself successfully in Turkish military operations. The ACS team consists of five people.
The development of the MKE AŞ company solves the problem of mobility and restrictions in the transfer of artillery over long distances. The maximum speed is 90 km/h.
The howitzer is designed for three different types of ammunition, including the 155 mm NATO standard. The firing range of the Mod 274 projectile reaches 40 km.
MKE AŞ told Anadolu that work is underway to double the firing range.
