MDK Project system qualification was completed successfully.

It reduces the distribution of artillery ammunition to less than 50 meters at all elevations and ranges, has sensitive, delayed, approach and timed fuze modes, is insensitive to electronic deception, jamming and electronic warfare methods, has a 5-fold increase in effectiveness compared to unguided ammunition, and can track multiple ammunition simultaneously in the air. With its and guidance capabilities, MDK will be the precision strike force of Turkish artillery.

Kubilay is a Ramjet powered 155 mm Artillery Shell with 100 km Range. Imagine our Firtina will be equipped with these Shells.

It was about time to increase the range of the Turkish artillery weapons considering how Ukraine war showed that powerful,accurate and long range artillery is still among the most important assets in today's battlefield.

Btw what happened to the introduction of ARPAN howitzers in the Turkish army?Did they scrap that project?

We need to have a capacity of at least 250k per month to sustain 450 deployed 155mm howitzers.

450 (150 batteries with 3x artillery pieces)
2 fire support missions per day
9 shells per fire mission (3 shells per artillery in a battery)
30 days per month
450*2*9*30=243000 shells per month.

I think the answer is confidential and not public knowledge.
This is MKE's report from 2022, while it doesn't mention exact numbers of production, you can see the budget for everything they produced, from gunpowder to howitzers at page 14. Or at least, that' what I'm guessing because the chart at the end barely has any descriptions, so it is either their budgets, or what they had the budget for and what they produced, I'm really not sure.

Pretty sure, there will be other facilities and companies involved.
TSK might even have their own facility somewhere mothballed. Or at least I hope.

Rheinmetall wants to cooperate with MKEK.

The last time that was the case is almost 10 years ago. Rheinmetall wanted to set up a factory for Altay production or was it the gun? Dont remember. Anything new? Didnt find anything on Google.

Do you have any information with regard to Yavuz..The self propelled howitzer.
Before 2023,The malaysian gov was interested in buying 155mm Yavuz yet later due to change of new government they decided to canceled it and have another round of open tender.
Its strange that I rarely read anything here on this forum that talk anything about Yavuz.

No, it was to modernise the ammunition facility.
