In a world where the battlefield is becoming increasingly mobile, Nurol Makina of Turkey offers its NMS 4x4 "Yoruk" Light Armored Vehicle (LAV). The vehicle is billed as an economical, multi-mission solution to cover a variety of roles through an inherent tactical flexibility. As such, the series can be used to satisfy a plethora of military and security-minded roles required by a majority of the global military players.

The Yoruk offers all-modern capabilities through an all-modern design. A four-wheeled, twin-axle arrangement is featured as its centerpiece which offers excellent ground clearance and offroad performance. As a Light Armored Vehicle type, the series provides its occupants with protection from small arms fire and artillery spray, allowing it to survive in contested zones even if for a short while. The engine is seated behind a slat-grille panel at the front of the hull with the rear of the car capable of being modified to suit many mission roles.

The Yoruk currently exists in several primary variants capable of specific mission roles. These include local area air defense, infantry support, convoy security, VIP transport, Special Operations support, SWAT//law enforcement service, reconnaissance, Anti-Tank (AT), and general utility.

The base form is the Armored Combat Vehicle (ACV) which sports thick bullet-resistant window panels and a roof-mounted Remote-Weapon Station (RWS). The 2.75" Missile Vehicle is outfitted with a roof-mounted turret offering 2 x 4-cell launchers on a trainable mounting. Similarly, the Anti-Tank Missile Vehicle (ATMV) has a 2 x 4-tube launcher arrangement over its roof, designed to fire Anti-Tank Guided-Missiles (ATGMs) at range in the armed scout/armor-defeating role. The Air Defense Vehicle (ADV) seats its Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) launcher atop its roof and can engage low-flying threats at short-range. The Reconnaissance & Surveillance model showcases a pair of high-reaching aerials as well as other antenna structures for the battlefield reconnaissance role. The Armored SWAT Vehicle is for special police force use and carries the roof-mounted RWS.

Most all combat forms are given smoke grenade dischargers to help screen their actions in contested areas. Non-combat variants include a single-cabin and double-cabin flatbed form for utility-minded missions.©MilitaryFactory.com
