Turkish armored vehicle producer Nurol Makina has chosen "Yoruk" as the name for its newest light armored vehicle.
The company aims to get the Yoruk — previously called the NMS 4X4 — combat ready by the end of July or the beginning of August, Hakan Arisut, business development manager at Nurol Makina, told Anadolu Agency.
The vehicle has multi-modular and high protection ability which can be maintained under the most difficult combat conditions, Arisut said.
He underlined that the vehicle got a great deal of attention on international platforms even during the testing phase.
"It also gave us the possibility to export. It's a really dynamic vehicle. We're proud for our defense industry," Arisut said.
Yoruk was designed on a military chassis with a fully independent suspension, constant 4×4 drive, and an auto central tire inflation system.
The Yoruk, weighing in at eight tons, is capable of carrying fully half that weight.
