Cool. Battle doctrines should be changed thanks to Turkish defense industry!
I don't want to ruin the party but what would be if they added two Carl Gustaf recoilless gun.
UMTAS is expensive weapon on the other hand 30mm cal couldn't blow up walls, tiny houses.

Carl Gustaf uses very capable, rapid and cheap ammunitions. Since the vehicle unmanned, you aren't afraid of infiltrate in hostile villages. Just destroy'm all from Carl Gustaf.
You can put it on the pther side as in type x milrem. Even kamikaze drones.

Its written there second level unmanned ground vehicle. This is light weight class instead of infanttries however there is Laser guided ammunition which has more kill probobality than bursting 30mm ammo.

I'm really hoping for a bigger rack/launcher for Mete. It is a really small missile, we should be able to use it in something like a small artillery barrage for maximum effect if necessary.
Isn't it a precision missile? I think it needs just a bit more range and it can be used as a sort of 'counterbattery' against ATGM hit-and-run attacks. Especially if it can be networked with a sensor system. Think about it, you fire a kornet and 5 seconds later there's a mete XL coming towards you. Better yet if mete can intercept the ATGM halfway. I don't know if it's technically possible but it would be a tanker's dream to have one of those on top of the turret.

We have Cirit for this.

I probably said this before, but I wholeheartedly believe this is the direction we need to start going, and we need to go at it hard.

We have fuck ton of old tanks and IFVs we can test the idea on, before settling on either an overhaul program for older platforms as an interim solution or building something new from scratch. Take some M48s out of the reserve, for example, and start experimenting on them to see if what we can do to make them unmanned, what we can change inside, what we can take out or add. See what we can do with an M113, can we turn it into a SHORAD platform to accompany our armor or troops? maybe direct/indirect fire support UGV?

We are already one of the leading nations on UAVs, we are probably ahead of almost every other nation in USVs and our companies have more than enough experience in drone technology in general to get something that can really hurt together.

Reportedly Sungur launchers can also fire Cirit missiles so we have multi-functional platform that is able to fire both AT and AA missiles.

Reportedly the Roketsan Yalman launcher with which Kaplan-10s and also Ulaq are already fitted can fire OMTAS, UMTAS, L-UMTAS, Cirit and Sungur. It is also combat proven.

FNSS in coordination with TSK are working over various concepts on the usage of UGVs. I am sure they will also look into this. There are many old M-113s in the inventory of TSK and there is also the Golge Suvari unmanned solution from FNSS that can be implemented as a modernization package. The concept must mature a bit more and I am sure that we will see some interesting solutions.

We aren't the only ones either, just saw Rheinmetall's prototype for shorad UGV, which looks pretty much like how I thought it would:

Anti-air might be the easiest/simplest implementation of UGVs while the concept matures.

This is heavier than what I thought but I understood the concept. With this package it reminds me of Aselsan Gurz. I am sure it will be possible to integrate it on old tank chassis no problem.

These are top-end and expensive. Here is a more cost effective solution. (Can be deployed at platoon level)
