A new domestically-produced heavy machine gun developed by Turkish firm Sarsılmaz has cleared all tests stages and is now ready to be delivered to the military.

The weapon, SAR 762 MT-type 12.7 mm heavy machine gun, has a 1,200-meter range (3,900-feet).

"The first batch of SART 762 MTs would soon be delivered to Turkish armed forces. This weapons will eliminate our dependency to foreigners. We are proud of that,” said Nuri Kızıltan, a senior executive at Sarsılmaz.

The machine gun can be used by infantry teams and can be mounted on various armored vehicles, including main battle tanks. “One of its most important features is its quick-changeable barrel. It will give opportunity to fire more frequently,” Kızıltan said.
