To meet a Turkish Land Forces Command (TLFC) urgent operational requirement, Aselsan has developed the Pulat hard-kill active protection system (APS) that leverages technology from the Zaslon – Light (Zaslon-L) APS developed in Ukraine.

Pulat APS is to be installed on TLFC M60TM main battle tanks (MBTs) that were previously upgraded under an earlier urgent requirement for deployment on the Turkish border.

The example of the M60TM, shown at IDEF 2019 in Istanbul, was also fitted with an Aselsan telescopic mast-mounted sighting system on the left side of the turret with a stabilised sensor pod including day charge-coupled device (CCD) camera, thermal camera, and a laser rangefinder.
