Turkey’s Mechanical and Chemical Industry Company (MKEK) has developed a new high-speed MOD78-HE long-range grenade launcher ammunition for the Turkish Armed Forces.
The grenade launcher ammunition will be used in MK-19, a 40mm automatic grenade launcher (AGL) during anti-terror operations, Hurriyet Daily reported Sunday.
The ammunition has a 10-meter-diameter destructive impact from a 2,000-meter-range fire and is capable of destroying terror elements in asymmetrical war conditions and in urban warfare. It can also be used in an assault. Currently, the Turkish army uses MK-19 automatic grenade launchers in its anti-terror operations.
Low speed and shorter-range ammunition are also in use. The mass production of the new ammunition is planned for June, while the certification process is ongoing.
