The Ejder (dragon) armored personnel carrier, was developed by Nurol Makina, a Turkish defense company as a private venture. It is worth mentioning that in the mid 1990s another 6x6 APC, the RN-94, was jointly developed by this company and Romarm of Romania. The RN-94 was not accepted to service, however Nurol Makina used some experience gained from that project developing its own APC. Georgia purchased a number of these APCs in 2008.. In some versions it carries a Fiat 25mm cannon.
