History Of The Mask Edit
In the mid-2000s Turkish Armed Forces demanded a more modern mask from MKE due to changes of CBRN warfare and ageing of SR6M. In 2004 MKE came with another copy of British S6 without compromising its traditional profile. After one year the first prototype came out, the new mask passed tests and trials with success and shortly after was issued to the Turkish Armed Forces in 2005.
