Nurol to launch new original armored vehicles at IDEF'17
Turkey's Nurol Defense Industries is set to launch their latest armored vehicles, state-of-the-art ballistic protective systems and original capability acquisition targets for the Turkish Aviation Industry at the International Defence Industry Fair (IDEF) 17.
Nurol will launch Ejder Yalçın, a unique Armored Personnel Carrier (APC) and 4x4 Armored Combat Vehicle. Another vehicle to be displayed at its stand is the Ilgaz II APC, which can be modified according to its users' needs.
The Ejder Kunter, which will be put on display for the first time, is a newly developed personnel transport vehicle designed for application with the high-performance Ejder TOMA vehicles used by security forces.
In addition to traditional armor systems, Nurol Technology also produces nano-sized powder metallurgy, hybrid solutions made of advanced materials and Boron Carbide, Silica Carbide and Alumina, produced in very few countries around the world, to make lightweight, durable and reliable armor systems
Nurol BAE Air Systems, established in 2015 by combining Nurol Holding's and BAE Systems' experience and technical know-how, carries out projects to create original capability acquisitions in the Turkish Aviation Industry and will introduce the systems, developed as the Primary Level System provider, at the IDEF'17.
BMC to launch new armored vehicle at IDEF'17
Turkish automotive giant BMC will showcase its newest armored vehicle at the International Defense Industry Fair next week. BMC CEO Bülent Denkdemir told Anadolu Agency (AA) that the company will display five vehicles at the fair which will be held on an area of 5,000 square meters. According to Denkdemir, two of BMC's latest armored vehicles Vuran and Amazon have nearly completed the testing phase are mass production will begin in the second half of the year.
Describing Vuran and Amazon as smaller, more compact versions of the BMC's armored vehicle Kirpi (Hedgehog), Denkdemir said that while the Kirpi is capable of carrying 12 people, Vuran and Amazon can carry nine and seven people, respectively.
Referring to the two more compact versions are the "smaller members of the [armored vehicle] family," Denkdemir said these vehicles have the potential for use in major cities due to their agility. "When you build a family of large and small vehicles, you can meet various needs ranging from the army to the police. These vehicles will enter service for the Turkish and Qatari military later this year." Besides Vuran and Amazon, another version of Kirpi, designed as a military ambulance for the Tunisian army, will also be displayed at the fair.
BMC is also planning to launch a new vehicle specifically produced for the Qatari army. Denkdemir said Qatar would purchase a significant number of this newest vehicle, which is yet to be named and will be launched at the fair. The vehicle is slated for mass production in early 2018. "It is a very special vehicle, with few like it in the world and can be dropped from cargo planes using parachutes. It will be completed by the end of the year," he said. "Our customers will see a mock-up during the preliminary phase of prototyping. Its prototype has not been completed yet but I hope it will be completed this autumn," said Denkdemir.

ROKETSAN to exhibit domestic KAAN missile
Turkey's major weapons manufacturer and defense contracting company ROKETSAN's domestic KAAN missile and weapon system, which pioneered Turkey's national missile and rocket programs, will be displayed for the first time at the 13th International Defense Industry Fair (IDEF) to be held at the TÜYAP Fair and Congress Center on May 9-12. ROKETSAN will be one of the biggest surprises featured at IDEF 2017, where the latest technological products of the Turkish defense industry will be showcased.
Measuring 610 milimeters in diameter, the KAAN missile which was developed and produced by ROKETSAN provides excellent fire support to maneuvering units by creating timely, accurate and effective fire and opening intense firing capabilities on high priority targets in all weather and terrain conditions, day and night. The KAAN missile will be able to shoot targets precisely thanks to its inertial guidance system supported by a Global Positioning System (GPS). It can be stored, transported and launched as an in-pod missile configuration, placed in an insulated pod.
The launching of the missile can be carried out from other platforms with an interface suitable for integration with the ROKETSAN-produced KAAN weapon system.
