During the fair, Kale Kalıp General Manager Selim Erol gave information about KNG-C5 and also mentioned Kale Kalıp’s intensive export activities in the region.

“Kale Kalıp attended the Indo Defense Fair for the second time. We brought both our new products and our existing products to this fair. Kale Kalip is launching KNG-C5 weapon for the first time at this fair. We also brought our KMR 762 pistol which we will manufacture and deliver soon to our Indonesian police user.”

The presence of Kale Kalıp at the Indonesian exhibition can be counted as a success after it became clear that Indonesia has placed the first order for the KNG-C5. The Turkish manufacturer defines the KNG-C5 as a rifle of a new generation.

In recent years, the Turkish company has been developing intensive exports in the region. Nearly 80,000 military products, weapons, articles, and accessories have been sold by Kale Kalıp in this part of the Asian continent. In addition to the KNG-C5, the company has also presented the KMR 762, which is already on sale in Indonesia. The first order of the KMR 762 assault rifle was placed by Indonesia in March this year, and the company announced that they are ready to ship the ordered quantity.

Furthermore, referring to the work of Kale Kalıp 5.56 Machine Gun, Selim Erol said, “As Kale Kalıp, we are the only company in Turkey that qualifies 5.56 light machine guns.

This was done simultaneously with our users from the Gendarmerie, Special Operations Police, and Ground Forces Command. Our gun is registered as good for 50,000 rounds. We are currently in mass production. Mass production deliveries will be completed soon. We see a lot of interest from abroad as well.”
