Turkish army begins to receive short-range anti-aircraft complex Korkut

Turkish Armed Forces began to receive Korkut short-range self-propelled artillery systems. Aselsan, a development company, has supplied the Turkish Defense Ministry with ten anti-aircraft systems. This was announced by the First Deputy Minister of Defense for the military-industrial complex Ismail Demir.


The first Korkut pilot system, consisting of two Korkut SPAAG combat vehicles and one C2 command vehicle, was delivered by Aselsan to the Turkish Ground Forces in October 2016. Then the Ministry of Defense announced plans to purchase 2020 combat vehicles and 40 command vehicles before the 13 of the year. The system is designed to destroy low-flying targets - aircraft, helicopters, drones and missiles.

The Korkut system consists of one command machine and three anti-aircraft installations. A fire control station with a surveillance radar (range - 70 km), as well as a day / night optoelectronic station transmits target data to SPAAG anti-aircraft installations. The anti-aircraft installation is an ACV-30 tracked chassis, on which a tower is mounted armed with a paired 35-mm automatic gun, as well as a tracking radar (range - 30 km) and an optoelectronic station designed to capture targets in any weather conditions. The tower of the combat vehicle is equipped with an automatic ammunition supply system. This allows for 15 seconds to switch from high-explosive incendiary shells to tracer (TR-T) and air explosive ordnance.

The contract for the supply of 40 systems was signed in the 2017 year. Deliveries began this year and will be completed before 2022. These ZSUs will replace the obsolete M42A1 Duster. The anti-aircraft complex is floating.

        I wonder in what way they carried out an air blast of shells

        it’s already a proven technology, they measure the distance to the target and the shell program the detonation through the identifier. time. or send a signal to the shell already in flight. It seems ours also experience such 30mm shells.

          It is significant that from the Americans the test videos are not afraid to show "state secrets", and again we have "breakfast" in a declarative manner. Not yet, but already laudatory odes. Go and have spent more on shooting money than on, in fact, development.

            What is state secret? similar 125mm tank shells have long been in service with us. And for Americans, private companies make beautiful presentations for obtaining government contracts, as was the case with a super grenade launcher, but the project was safely bent.

              A really illustrative example, at first they rejected 25mm, then 30mm, then 40mm, then 45mm, and in general the concept itself, and all because of the peculiarities of the expansion of fragments.

          It’s not even clear what to say ..

          "Or I'm dull or a woman drives" (c)

          Only large-caliber, tank shells were shown in our work. And judging by the detailed descriptions, we are talking about an optical programmer. Laser measure the speed immediately after departure and set the blasting time. For small calibers, such as 30 mm, the big question is how and where to push the optical sensor and converter there, they are not very small. The first video shows a 40 mm foreign projectile, and it is easier to program when flying out of the barrel with electromagnetic induction.

          A projectile with remote detonation, firstly, depends on the transparency of the medium, and secondly, you can’t shoot in a burst, all at once they will be blown up in the air .. Although it may be as planned: (((

            Not necessarily, it is possible to configure so that the photo sensor will only receive information in the first N meters and T time after the projectile leaves the barrel, and the output itself is tied to the detonation of the MVV. That is, the capsule, platoon, deferred barrel, deferred gas in front of the barrel, time for setting a timer, disabling the photo sensor, repeating the cycle for the next shot worked. Or for example, you can make a sensor for different sets of codes and encode the first shot with the first set, the second with the second, the third with the third, and by the time of the fourth (or Nth) the first will be free.

        With the development of cheap drones, which ZR sinfully spent on, maybe buy.
        Indeed, in Russia 57 mm produced the same for anti-aircraft targets.

          Well, that was in the 50s and in the USSR. Yes, and ZSU-57-2 did not find ZSU fame at all. To this day it is used as an excellent tool for suppressing firing points and large clusters of infantry. In other matters, ZU-23-2 and Shilka (ZU-23-4) are famous for the same. And from the drones - EW, from the swarm for sure.

                    And what’s not bad, especially the majority of UAVs have speeds like those of airplanes at the beginning of the Second World War. Yes, and the price is almost penny. What to shoot down, only with a cannon system.

                      Most UAVs have a speed similar to aircraft at the beginning of World War II.

                      Only the heights are different. Cannon air defense can hardly work effectively on targets above 3km (and even 3km the effect is doubtful). A UAV now fly very high.

        I meant that when creating anti-aircraft guns, before this requirement was not significant, but now there is. And the caliber needs to be selected and avionics and radar. In Russia, for example, there are no art complexes with such capabilities yet. And this one also does not have such options. But the Turks lead limited conflicts and have bases ....

        it’s just that the matter of the number of rounds per minute also plays a significant role if we want to get a universal air defense system for destroying small-sized targets, while not having anti-aircraft missiles, if we compare Western counterparts, then less than 4000 rounds per minute is actually not good

    Of course, I can hardly understand air defense, but they must harness a horse and a trembling doe. There should be a network-centric complex in order to have an aggressor from 400 km to 20 m. And also to recruit complex operators from orphanages so that there are no relatives. In Turkey, this is important.
