Members of the Smart Micro Munition Family, which can be integrated with Armed Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (AUAV) in the inventories of the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF), the General Command of Gendarmerie and the Turkish National Police, have been used successfully in operations, since 2016 for MAM-L, and since 2018 for MAM-C. Enhancing the efficiency of air platforms with low payload capacity and particularly of armed UAVs, the MAM product family,  is included also in the inventories of friendly and allied nations. MAM-L and MAM-C outperform their rivals with not only their technologies, but also their operational experience.

MAM-T, developed by Roketsan engineers in the light of the experience gained from MAM-L and MAM-C, provided a new advancement in AUAV capability. Its first firing test was completed in April from a Bayraktar AKINCI Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV). In this test, the AKINCI UCAV deployed the Smart Munitions MAM-C, MAM-L and for the first time, MAM-T, successfully destroying the intended targets.
