Operating in the arms, ammunition, rocket-explosive and chemical, machinery and materials group in the defense industry, MKE AŞ commissioned the cartridge line, which was established with domestic and national resources in May 2020, at the Gazi Fişek Factory in order to respond to the needs of the security forces. In the last period, delegations from friendly and allied countries visited the facility.
At the end of the negotiations, a contract for the “Fisek Imla-Assembly & Bullet and Hive Production Lines Supply and Installation Project” was signed between MKE AŞ and Jordan Jordan Design and Development Bureau (JODDB) company for the establishment of a similar line.
With the production line to be established within the scope of the project, a significant production capacity of shells and shells will be reached to be presented to Jordanian security forces. In fact, annual production of 30 million shells (5.56mmx45, 7.62mmx51, 7.62mmx39 and 9mmx19), annual production of 30 million rounds (7.62mmx51 M80, 5.56mmx45 SS109/M193, 7.62mmx39 M67, 9 mmx19), annual 20 million spelling/assembly ( 7.62mmx51 M80 Cartridge, 7.62mmx39 M67 Cartridge, 5.56mmx45 SS109/M193) will be held.
All benches to be installed under the contract will be of domestic production.
