One Command and Control Vehicle and two Gun System Vehicles developed and tests were successfully completed, with final acceptance occurring October 31, 2016. Production line qualification and serial production activities will be carried out in accordance with the Serial Production Phase of the KORKUT Project that started on May 19, 2016 with the signing of the related agreement between SSM and ASELSAN. Work on the Serial Production Phase of the KORKUT Project started after the serial production agreement was signed between SSM and ASELSAN, and subsequently a sub-contract agreement was signed between ASELSAN and FNSS on December 2, 2016 for the delivery of the tracked platforms. 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.
