   The RN-94 6x6 armored personnel carrier was developed as a private venture by the Nurol Makina of Turkey and Romarm of Romania. The first prototype was built in 1995. Turkish Army has purchased five pre-production RN-94s for evaluation, but no production orders had been placed.

   The RN-94 can be fitted with a wide range of weapon systems. Trial version has been fitted with the Giat Dragar turret, armed with a 25-mm cannon and 7.62-mm coaxial machine gun. The first prototype of the RN-94 was completed with 12.7-mm and 7.62-mm machine guns.

   Armor of the RN-94 provides protection against small arms fire and artillery shell splinters. Vehicle is also fitted with NBC protection and automatic fire suppression systems.

   Vehicle has a crew of two and can carry 11 fully equipped troops. Occupants enter and leave vehicle via roof hatches and twin doors in the rear. A number of firing ports are provided for the crew.

   The RN-94 uses a number of automotive components of the Romanian TAB-77 8x8 APC. It is powered by the Cummins CTA 8.3-10 diesel engine, developing 240 horsepower. Vehicle is fully amphibious. On water it is propelled by two waterjets.
