Already began delivering the National Infantry Rifle MPT-76's to Turkish Armed Forces, the manufacturer Mechanical and Chemical Industry Corporation (MKEK) achieved a significant advancement in this new project. MKEK has manufactured the first prototype of a lower 5,56 calibre rifle after 7,62 mm MPT-76, which was developed for Special Forces and designated as MPT-55. Since NATO commonly prefers 5,56 calibre rifles, MPT-55 will be an alternative in export market.
