M793 Target Practice with Tracer (TP-T) rounds

 

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 14 (UPI)

 

ATK of Minnesota will produce for 25mm tactical and training ammunition components for Turkey under a $16.2 million award.

 

The two-year contract was given by Makina ve Kimya Endustrisi Kurumu on behalf of the Turkish Ministry of Defense.

 

ATK said it established MKEK as a producer of medium-caliber munitions through a transfer of technology and manufacturing assistance agreement in 1999.

 

This new contract falls under a 10-year extension signed in December 2010 that follows an already decade-long partnership to provide material licensing and technical assistance for the indigenous production of ATK's 25mm munitions in Turkey.

 

Materials for both tactical and training 25mm munitions, including the M792 high explosive incendiary with tracer, M793 target practice with tracer, and M791 armor-piercing discarding sabot with tracer are scheduled for delivery to MKEK beginning next year.

 

"We are committed to driving international growth in our medium-caliber ammunition business through both direct sales and strategic partnerships," said Dan Olson, vice president and general manager, ATK Integrated Weapons Systems.

 

"We will continue to support MKEK and their efforts to expand Turkey's indigenous production capabilities and are excited to develop similar relationships within other key market areas."
