Yeah I guess this is not yet the full version but just demonstration of tower integration
The previous modernization videos from Roketsan, and Aselsan have shown us a more complete picture. As you mentioned this can not be the final product.

FFS invest in modern MBT and IFV, modernizing ancient sh*t all the time will not get you anywhere, plan for the long term and not the next 5-10 years.

This turret can be used in various vehicles and this is why I am excited about it. We might have finally found our alternative to Cockerill turrets.

Why does the turret look like this one?


Is the back compartment for an autoloader?
Yes it has an autoloader, and yes it is based on the Russian turret.

The purpose of this whole project is to make Turkish M60a3 which are stationed in Armenia and Azerbaijan border and Azerbaijani T72s have common infrastructure so it can enable the units if TSK near Azerbaijan fight along Azerbaijani units easier in case of War, or at least that's what I have understood from reading statements from people with knowledge of this project.

Rocketsan's turret is looking awesome. But they would need a new hull with thicker armor. KAPLAN MT's hull is too thin. (One of the reason it lost to VT-5 in BD Army's competition) I guess Otokar can easily pull this off since they developed the ALTAY. (Or BMC, as now they have the full technology of ALTAY)

If we can gain a modern medium weight tank option of around 35 tons (air transportable) with a domestic engine, transmission and 105/120mm turret, it may be possible to export it in really high quantities.
Then you could Photoshop it:)

Wonder why there is no modular armor on the sides tho. And in case of emergency how fast can driver can get out of the tank? It seems they need to turn the turret little bit.
Driver could escape through the turret. AFAIK under the tank there is an emergency exit.

Hyundai Rotem's K3 concept from last year. World's advancing rapidly as we play catch up.

Just two tank crew and they are seperated . İt's far from ALTAYs or K2 design.Altay with Unmanned tank turret would not be as same as this K3.
