BMC’s KIRPI II MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle was displayed in İzmir with an integrated robotic arm. KIRPI I MRAP was also displayed with a robotic arm. Nurol Makina’s Ejder Yalçın vehicle was also unveiled in 2016 with ASELSAN’s ETİ (Handmade Explosive Detection and Inspection System). However, neither vehicle were ordered by the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) or any other user.
