The KORKUT Air Defense Gun System is developed for the effective air defense of mechanized troops and mobile units. System has firing on the move capability with the stabilized and unmanned gun turret.

The Korkut Self Propelled Air Defense Gun System is based on the tracked Armoured Combat Vehicle ACV-30 platform designed and manufactured by the Turkish Defense Comapny FNSS. The Korkut sel-propelled air defense gun vehicle is fitted a remotely opertaed weapon station armed with two stabilised Rheinmetall Air Defence 35 mm KDC cannons manufactured under licence by the Turkish Company MKEK (Makina ve Kimya Endüstrisi Kurumu).

The KORKUT Gun System has capability of firing 35 mm Airburst Ammunition - which is also a product of ASELSAN - in addition to conventional type 35 mm ammunitions. KORKUT Gun System–together with 35 mm Airburst Ammunition- highly improves the effectiveness of ground based air defense against modern air threats including air-to-ground missiles, cruise missiles and UAVs.

In March 2017, Turkish Army has signed a contract with the Company Aselsan of Turkey for the purchase of undisclosed number of new Korkut 35mm short-range air defense system. According Internet source, Turkish army plans to order 42 35mm weapon systems and 14 command/control vehicles, with first delivery in 2018.
