Domestically produced soldier-worn grenade holster to enter TAF inventory

The EBK-44 hand grenade holster system is set to enter service with the Turkish Armed Forces, according to Ismail Demir, president of Turkish Defence Industries-SSB.

EBK-44 is manufactured by Turkish company Savunma Teknolojileri Mühendislik (STM). It enables soldiers to use a grenade one-handed without having to let go of their personal weapon.

A safety system enables the grenade to be returned to its holster, or carried by the soldier, even if the pin is pulled.

‘We continue to develop new products that will provide an advantage in the field with the needs, demands and experiences of Mehmetçi [Turkish soldiers],’ Demir said, adding that the EBK-M44 is suitable for ‘special field operations’.
