Nurol Makina will deliver the first batch of the Ejder Yalcin and Ejder Toma vehicles in March 2018, and the second batch in April or May. Senegalese security officers are already being trained at the facilities of Nurol Machinery for the use of these two kinds of vehicles.

The Ejder Yalçin, a new member of the Ejder family of vehicles, is a 4×4 tactical armoured combat vehicle. Design studies on the vehicle were initiated in the last quarter of 2012 and a pre-prototype of the base vehicle was exhibited at the IDEF in 2013. Mass production of the vehicle began in May 2014.

The vehicle is equipped with optionally integrated, remote-controlled and manually-operated weapon stations. The optional armament mounted on the vehicle includes 7.62mm and 12.7mm machine guns, a 25mm anti-aircraft gun and a 40mm automatic grenade launcher. Other optional equipment includes a rescue winch, day or night-vision systems, rear ramp, and explosion suppression and fire-fighting systems for the crew compartment.

The vehicle can be reconfigured as a reconnaissance, command and control, internal security, ambulance, chemical biological radiological nuclear (CBRN) vehicle, weapon carrier and combat vehicle, so that it meets the multiple mission requirements of the users.

At the Senegal gendarmerie’s request, the new vehicles are equipped with open turrets.

The other 4x4 armoured vehicle purchased by Senegal is the Ejder Toma, a riot control vehicle. It has been developed to maintain public order and security in rural and urban areas as well as border regions with its high off-road performance
