The 2.75” Laser-Guided Missile CİRİT, which has been developed with an innovative approach by Roketsan, is a leader in its class of products thanks to its distinctive characteristics and performance . Used both by the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF) and the armies of friendly and allied nations, CİRİT has proven its performance and effectiveness many times in the field .
As a missile with the longest range in its class, CİRİT can be used with different warheads in line with the requirements of the user. These warheads can be listed as follows:
- Thermobaric warhead;
- Multipurpose warhead with anti-armor, anti-personnel and incendiary effects;
- High-explosive warhead .
Smart Micro Munition Family
The Smart Micro Munition product family developed by Roketsan to meet current and future combat requirements, consisting of MAM-L which is equipped with high explosive fragmentation warhead and is effective against light structures, unarmored ground vehicles, radar antennas and soft targets like weapon pits and personnel dispersed over a large area, and MAM-C versions, continues to perform as promised in combat operations .
The Smart Micro Munition, which can be integrated with the BAYRAKTAR TB2 Tactical and ANKA MALE unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), has been successfully used in operations since 2016. Enhancing the efficiency of air platforms with a low payload capacity and particularly unmanned aerial vehicles, the Smart Micro Munition will also enter the inventories of friendly and allied nations starting from 2019. MAM-L and MAM-C outperform their rivals with not only their technologies, but also their operational experience .
SOM Family, New Generation of Cruise Missiles
Work on the serial production and development of different versions of the Stand-Off Missile (SOM), which has been developed as an air-to-ground/surface cruise missile to meet the requirements of the Turkish Armed Forces and those of friendly and allied nations, continues at full speed. The current members of the SOM product family are the SOM-A, SOM-B1 and SOM-B2 versions for use against ground targets, and the SOM-J version for use against naval targets . SOM-A and SOM-B1 feature a high explosive blast fragmentation warhead; SOM-B2 has a tandem penetrator warhead; and SOM-J has a semi-armor piercing warhead. The missile can select between missions based on pre-flight programming and it is possible to select the parameters used to hit the target .
The SOM product family, developed based on the most recent doctrines and technologies related to cruise missiles, stands out with its modular design, which supports the required operational flexibility for use against ground and naval targets with active protection .
