   Prototype of the BMC 380-26P appeared somewhere in 2006. It was developed as a private venture. Essentially it is a longer 4x4 chassis with additional axle and necessary driveline modifications. Later this design was modified, restyled and fitted with a new cab. In 2008 Turkish MoD decided to acquire a total of 2 000 4x4 and 6x6 tactical wheeled vehicles and mine protected vehicles. The BMC 380-26P was one of them. Turkish Army ordered a total of 403 6x6 trucks. First production vehicles were delivered in 2009. This tactical truck is also being proposed for export operators in African, Middle Eastern and Asian countries.

   Designation of this military truck follows the standard BMC practice. First number in the designation denotes engine power (hp), while the last number denoted gross vehicle weight (GVW).

   This tactical truck is entirely conventional in design. The BMC 380-26P can carry up to 15 500 kg of cargo on hard surface roads and 10 000 kg off-road. The baseline vehicle has a general service troop/cargo body with drop sides and drop tailgate. Cargo area is covered with bows and canvas cover. A variety of other versions of this truck, such as shelter carrier, are also available. Vehicle is fitted with a NATO standard towing hook and can tow trailers and artillery pieces with a maximum weight of 10 000 kg.

   Cab of this truck accommodates driver and two passengers. There is an observation hatch with a machine gun mount.

   Vehicle is powered by a Cummins ISMe 385 30 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 380 hp. It complies with EURO III emission requirements. This military truck is fitted with a ZF 16-speed manual transmission. Fully-automatic transmission is optional. This tactical vehicle has a full-time all-wheel drive.
