Roketsan showcased its main product portfolio during last week’s Eurosatory Exhibition (Paris, 11-15 June 2012), including:
T-107 Rocket, T-122 Rocket, T-300 Rocket, 2.75” Laser Guided Missile, Long Range Anti-Tank Missile (UMTAS), Medium Range Anti-Tank Missile (OMTAS°, OMTAS Tripod Launcher, DSH Anti-Submarine Warfare Rocket, 2.75” Laser Guided Missile and Medium Range Anti-Tank Missile Launcher models:
Through 3D visual demonstrations, the main features of Roketsan’s new generation 2.75” Laser Guided Semi-Active Missile (CIRIT) and Long Range Anti-Tank Missile (UMTAS) launched from air platforms which are air-to-ground missiles having the latest technology in the world were shown.
Roketsan has completed the development and qualification of the new generation 2.75” Laser Guided Missile “CIRIT” and signed the first contract for the serial production for the Turkish Army requirements. Being the first guided 2.75” Missile to be under serial production, Roketsan started the deliveries in May 2012 for combat deployment.
CIRIT is unique due to its range of up to 8 Km, multi-purpose (Anti-Armor, Anti-Personnel Incendiary) warhead, AUR characteristics and Insensitive Munition (Type V) properties. Additionally, CIRIT is an ITAR free missile. The integration of CIRIT for different platforms such as Helicopters, UAVs, Heavy and Light Armored Vehicles, Naval and Land systems, is run by Roketsan for international customers.
Another unique missile is near the end of its development. UMTAS is a Long Range Anti-Tank Missile with 8 Km range homing IIR Seeker with RF Data-Link and with Tandem – High Explosive Warhead. Laser Seeker option is also available. The missile has LOBL, LOAL and LO-Update capabilities. The serial production is expected to start early 2013.
UMTAS and CIRIT use the common laser seeker which enables combining both systems in the same configuration for customized solutions.
