Turkish Armed Forces get new high-capacity firearms magazines

The head of the Presidency of Turkish Defence Industries (SSB), Ismail Demir, tweeted Thursday that his country has succeeded in manufacturing a high-capacity (60 rounds) firearms magazine and stated that the Turkish Armed Forces would soon be supplied with it.

According to the tweet, there are only two countries in the world that produce this type of high-capacity magazines, and thus Turkey has become one of the few countries capable of producing high-capacity magazine utilizing national facilities.

The tweet also stated that the high-capacity magazine adds strategic advantage to soldiers on the battlefield, as it is superior to conventional 5.56 x 45 mm magazines which can only hold 30 rounds.

The 60-round high-capacity magazine eliminates the need to change the magazine which wastes time and can leave soldiers vulnerable to attack.
