I heard Turkey canceled the T-LORMAIDs program. Is it true?
T-LORMAID was only a single competitor of the Turkish long-range air defence missile bid. The other ones are US PAC-3M, Russian Antey-2500 and Chinese HQ-9. We have choosen the HQ-9 and were planning to buy 4 systems (16 batteries) of them. But the NATO says the system is unintegrable to their air defense network and systems, so we got back into other producers and systems. We will robably choose the T-LORAMIDs by the way...

What's with the black smoke! is that normal?
It's just exhaust smoke of it's engine, when you give full RPM it to climb a height like tank carrier vagon we see in this exanple it keeps smoking afterwards. We are talking about the 1,000 hp MTU diesel engine. It's exremely normal to be so smoky...

Nice to see the HGM still kicking.
It's PKM and yes most of the Gendarmerie & Land Forces commando units are using them like I wrote the current inventory list of the Turkish Armed Forces. Instead of MG 3 the standard service machine gun because it's much more light and compact compare to it. Also our guys produce soft ammo bags and rail attachments for the NV and thermal sights like we see in this example...

Also the new machine gun project planning to replace MG 3s based on PKM mechanism in 7.62x51mm NATO cartige with new quick changable barrell and left feed mechanism with rail attachments et all. like ı wrote again to the future projects of Turkish Armed Forces.
