Roketsan responded equally to Russia’s targeting of Turkish Armed Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SİHA).
Russia has previously targeted Turkish Siha’s
Russia’s state television, Rossiya 1, recently targeted Turkish SİHAs in the promotional news of the kamikaze drone ‘Lantset’. In the article titled “Bayraktar TB2s do not have a chance when the Rus Lantset takes off”, which tells about the Ukraine-Russia tension of Rossiya 1, it was stated that Turkey sold armament to Ukraine and Turkish SİHAs were targeted.
It has proven its strength in many regions
The response to the reference to the Turkish SİHAs, which destroyed Russian military elements in operations in Syria, Libya and finally Nagorno-Karabakh, was quick.
The response from Roketsan to Russia’s sending targeting Turkish drones was not delayed. Roketsan’s social media accounts shared the animation of the Russian-made Air Defense System Pantsir with the smart ammunition MAM-T developed with local and national facilities.
MAM-T, the new member of the MAM (Mini Intelligent Ammunition) family, developed nationally by Roketsan, was used for the first time in this test.
Developed to meet the need for higher warhead efficiency and longer range, the MAM-T has a Block-1 configuration ammunition and semi-active laser seeker head that provides high sensitivity against moving and stationary targets.
Developed to be compatible with different platforms, MAM-T can be used against armored and unarmored vehicles, buildings and surface targets with 30+ km range capability in UAVs.
Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA (Attack Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), developed by BAYKAR with domestic and national means, successfully completed the first firing test on 22 April 2021. Intelligent ammunition developed nationally by Roketsan, MAM-C, MAM-L and MAM-T used for the first time successfully hit the targets.
