In-Game equipment

The Turkish Land Forces predominantly use modernized battle rifles fitted with advanced optics as their primary weapons. They greatly emphasize anti-infantry capabilities, using handled revolver-type MKE MGL grenade launchers and MG3 Medium Machine Guns for the Automatic Rifleman role, though at the expense of anti-armor warfare as Heavy Anti-Tank kit option is unavailable.

The TLF vehicle lineup is composed of serveal indigenous and modular platforms that are capable of mounting armaments from automatic grenade launchers to M242 Bushmaster autocannons. Remote weapon stations are extensively employed to protect vehicle operators, but the faction lacks proper MBTs, high-tier IFVs, and vehicle-mounted missiles for sufficient armored confrontation.
