 Turkiye has 15-ton class ACV-15 infantry fighting vehicles equipped with a 25mm cannon. Vehicles provide ballistic protection against 14.5x114 millimetres armour piercing rounds. 30-ton class Marder offers lower-level firepower but provides better armour protection to the crew, which is resistant to up to 20 millimetres of armour-piercing ammunition. Turkiye will need to accelerate next-generation infantry fighting vehicle projects shortly in the case of Marder IFV delivery.
