NMS has launched its Ejder 4x4 wheeled armored vehicle (R) at IDEF fair.

Turkish defense industry firm Nurol Makina Sanayi (NMS) has launched its armored vehicle Ejder 4x4 and unveiled its riot control vehicle TOMA at the International Defense Industry Fair that has been taking in Istanbul since May 7 and is ending today.

The manufacturer, which is the first producer of six-wheel-drive armored vehicles in Turkey, has financed the locally designed and produced project using only its own capital.

National Defense Minister İsmet Yılmaz, Defense Industry Undersecretary Murad Bayar and Nurol Holding chairman Nurettin Çarmıklı attended the presentation ceremony of the Ejder 4x4.

Ejder 4x4 has the highest internal volume of its class, and it offers alternative usages for different platforms.

NMS is also the manufacturer of TOMA, a vehicle used to intervene in public incidents by domestic security forces.

In addition to vehicles sold to Turkish military and police forces, most recently Nurol sold 20 TOMAs to the Libyan Internal Affairs Ministry for its police forces. The latest tranche of delivery, which has been taking place in stages, will be completed in May.

In addition to four-wheel-drive and six-wheel-drive armored vehicles, NMS manufactures the subsystems, additional armor sets and war towers used for the vehicles as well.

@eric because they are a defence contractor and we Need These armored vehicles to help our brave troops and policemen do their Job of protecting us. We also sell them to other countries so their Police and Military can do their Job. This Company competes against other companies from many countries in Europe/USA anmd asia. Building a truck is not the same as building a regular truck.

We know they can build a truck. Why not build a regular truck for export?
