According to Akdere, Turkey wanted to import naval guns from a NATO ally country. The country has asked 8,2 million Euro and to wait 24 months but apply embargo. Following negotiations within the ministry, it was decided to start the R&D phase for the gun. The R&D phase is completed in 12 months, and the gun will be assembled soon. Akdere stated that the company that demanded 8.2 million Euro offered the same gun at a very lower price.
