Need for a Domestic Machine Gun

Domestic infantry rifles were taken into inventory in large numbers and an important gap was eliminated. However, the need for special forces, infantry and especially machine guns used in on-vehicle equipment is mostly met by foreign resources. In times of crisis, it may not be possible to meet these weapons from various foreign manufacturers. For this reason, the production of machine guns of our domestic manufacturerszamis of utmost importance. Machine guns used in remote-controlled weapon systems are especially important. NRCs play an important role in fire support. Our domestic machine guns are designed in similar sizes to the machine guns currently used in our vehicles.
