    Information existed since late September 2013, but I have not noticed it only now
    Tunisian army request for the acquisition of MRAP Kirpi as was announced by Turkish Defense Minister Ismat Yilmaz, and did not specify the number yet., But the Turkish Ministry of Defense talked about the exporting it soon ..
    For example Kirpi entered into the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces now, in short time will start exporting to Tunisia

    no good translation
