Turkiye Exports Air Transportable Howitzer

Defence Ministry Company MKE Inc. announced that the inspection procedures for BORAN howitzers that will be exported to an Asian country have been completed. MKE Inc. developed the air-transportable 105 mm Air-Transportable Light Towed Howitzer BORAN with domestic resources. The first design goal was to support internal security operations commando brigades within the framework of the needs of the Turkish Armed Forces. The first goal was to add 106 BORAN to the inventory, but it was increased to more than 150 guns. BORAN was first carried by Helicopter under a sling in 2018 and entered the inventory in 2021. With the agreement signed with Bangladesh in 2023, the export path for 18 BORANs was opened. The 105 mm 30 calibre BORAN has a range of 17 kilometres with M1 standard ammunition and 21 kilometres with long-range ammunition. BORAN can fire six rounds per minute. BORAN is equipped with Muzzle Velocity Radar, INS, a Night Vision System, a battery, and a generator. The night vision system allows it to shoot at targets at distances of 2 thousand meters.
