Turkey abandons US Stinger MANPADS in favor of its PorSav

Turkey abandons US Stinger MANPADS in favor of its PorSav

The Turkish army refuses portable anti-aircraft systems of American production. We are talking about modifications to the FIM-92 Stinger. These MANPADS in Turkey are manufactured under an American license at the Roketsan factory.


Now the “Stingers” in the troops will be gradually replaced by Turkish-made man-portable air defense systems. These are PorSav systems (Portatif Savunma), which mass production has begun in Turkey.

PorSav - MANPADS, which was created in cooperation with the aforementioned Roketsan and Aselsan company. The man-portable air defense missile system is positioned by the manufacturer as a low-altitude system. A missile is capable of hitting targets at an altitude of up to 4 km. Moreover, the range is not more than 6 km. PorSav, as stated, takes into account the technologies used by Stinger and HİSAR.

The homing head of the new Turkish MANPADS - Imager Infrared (IIR) instead of the IR Seeker Head. Allegedly, missiles with such a seeker are "very difficult to fool with traditional countermeasures aviation". It is noted that against them false targets in the form of heat traps become practically useless.

The manufacturer believes that such MANPADS will increase the effectiveness of army air defense. In particular, they plan to arm the Turkish naval forces.

      February 3, 2018 Su-25, pilot Major Roman Filipov, Syria. Plane shot down MANPADS from the ground in the region of Serakiba. What, again, throw caps? How are you tired of the turbopatriots. Oh well. You would be thrust into the trench under the mortar shelling once, in order to decrease your arrogance and turn on your brains.
      Since the start of Russia's military operation in Syria, according to official figures, 44 Russian soldiers have died.

      During the operation, the Russian aerospace forces lost two transport and three attack helicopters, two Su-24 bombers and a Su-25 attack aircraft. In addition, at the end of 2016, during an expedition to the Syrian coast of the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, accidents occurred with the participation of two fighters - the MiG-29 and Su-33 (aircraft were lost when landing).

      On December 31, 2017, a Mi-15 helicopter crashed 24 km from the Hama airport in Syria. As a result of a hard landing, both pilots died, the helicopter's flight technician survived. The Russian military department said that the cause of the disaster was a technical malfunction.

      On October 10, 2017, at the Khmeimim airbase, the Su-24 bomber crashed on takeoff. Crew members, pilot Yuri Medvedkov and navigator Yuri Kopylov, died. According to preliminary data from the RF Ministry of Defense, a technical malfunction could become the cause of the disaster.

        And when was the war without loss? All men are adults and know where they are going. In the 30s, they also perished in both Spain and Mongolia. And always, almost all over the world, ours ran with machine guns, even so many not beloved head of Rosneft Sechin and naturally he was not alone.

        In fact, for more than 4.5 years of operation in Syria 15 cars were lost: 7 helicopters (2 - non-combat losses; equipment failure or pilot errors) and 8 aircraft (4 - non-combat losses). This is for 4.5 years of combat operation! A lot of? A lot of! Even - 1 - LOTS. But it must be taken into account that only in the first THREE years the videoconferencing system committed more in Syria 39 thousands (!) fighting sorties (how many today - I don’t know, I guess - somewhere around 50 thousand). And it turns out that the losses (total - combat and non-combat) amounted to 1 car for more than 3 000 sorties! And this is with extremely intense combat work! And how many others have lost, and not only in wartime, but also in peacetime ??

      Not that our air defense, thoroughly thinned the ranks of Turkish UAVs in Syria and Libya.
      Russian air defense systems destroyed more than half of all Turkish drones fired over the years.

      In less than a year, Soviet and Russian air defense systems, and we are talking about such complexes as Pantsir-S, Buk, Kvadrat and Osa, destroyed more than a hundred Turkish unmanned aerial vehicles Bayraktar TB2 - this is more than that , which is currently in service with Turkey. The stock of drones accumulated by the Turkish military over the course of several years diverged “thanks” to Russian weapons in only six months.


      Thus, during the use of Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial vehicles by the Turkish military, their losses exceeded a hundred units, while a few days ago it became known that Turkey has only 107 drones in service, which means that about half of all drones only Russian air defense systems were consumed, and not to mention the fact that Libyan military aviation several times to the ground destroyed hangars with Turkish drones at Mitig Airport.

        “while a few days ago it became known that Turkey’s armament now has only 107 drones,” These are 107 pieces. in the sun. +6 pcs. was in the Gendarmerie + 3 pcs. two days ago from the Baikar factory they were transferred to the gendarmerie forces. + 6 pcs were sold to Tunisia (Anka-S), + 6 pcs. to Ukraine, + 12 pcs. to Qatar, + about 20 pcs. to Libya. All this is on the internet. They have real combat aircraft, carrying drones under the wings of drones in the amount of 87 pieces. The rest are for reconnaissance.

        In recent years, the Turks have made great strides in the development and production of Hisar air defense systems. We have learned how to make launch systems and rockets (Roketsan), locators, communications, smart guidance heads, optics and control unit software (Aselsan) ourselves. Now it’s easy for them to create a portable PorSav from its components.

          Vague doubts torment me. Not so simple. Which plant in Turkey produces light - heat sensitive matrices for homing heads?

            "light - heat sensitive matrices for homing heads" They call this element a little differently - "goruntuleyici arayici baslik" and "goruntuleyici kizil otesi gudumlu baslik" Turks say that they produce (uretir) Aselsan, and not only for portable PorSav, but also for other rockets, for example, Bozdogan air-to-air. But, there is no detailed story and other information. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hDHosNdwP10&t=282s

              It may have been expressed clumsily, but the meaning is clear. Such matrices are produced in only a few countries and I have not heard about Turkey.

                  So far, I have not seen any serious advanced technologies in them. UAVs and those are made using imported parts.

                    Maybe they don’t create it from scratch, but they have the initiative, knowledge of the existing trending technologies and the possibility of production and use. For example, just 15 years ago they produced 15-20% of weapons and supplies for the needs of the VS. And that was mostly primitive (in the technological sense) ammunition, shells, etc. Now, 70% of everything they need is produced by themselves, not depending on others. The remaining 30% is mainly connected with combat aircraft, which they still buy. In UAVs and other devices, you can use imported parts, they do this all over the world. but, at home, to produce what is under sanction risk, if suddenly something. The Turks in this sense have secured themselves.

                      The remaining 30% are just those critical technologies, without which the remaining 70% is simply not needed.

      I listened to the TTX in Turkish. It is said that the missile’s search head fixes and aims at the overall picture of the target, and no longer “pays attention” to any deceit when flying.

        Everything is fine. The more powerful, productive, on-board / control computer, the more target images can be crammed into it! A missile, as it becomes smarter, it’s harder to fool it!
        There is a limit to everything, of course .... they will create / improve methods of aiming at the target, and immediately countermeasures will be created!
        The eternal "contest" hit - dodged!

      The Turks said that in recent years the United States has created many problems in the supply of even these rockets to Turkey. They did not take into account that the Turks themselves can produce better and cheaper. Roketsan and Aselsan are developing at an astonishing pace, miracles are some kind. For the USA, it’s not expected from "countries, all this.

      You can write any numbers on a piece of paper - it will endure everything. Where did the performance characteristics come at the level of the latest MANPADS? What parts will they be assembled from? We must understand the mattresses banned the supply of new MANPADS, so they decided to switch to their own.

        Components can be purchased, and the rest is a matter of remuneration of hired specialists.
        Not only the Yankees "burn pots", the more Turkish manufacturers have freedom of maneuver, choice! Nobody forbade them to buy what they needed.
        By the way, they themselves learned to do a lot and this is a fact!
        I do not claim that they got a super super wunderwafer, but at the average level of competence they learned how to do it.

          Some components are subject to all kinds of prohibitions, like military or dual-use products. If we don’t produce it ourselves, then it’s very possible that we bought it today, and tomorrow Uncle Sam didn’t allow it. Moreover, it is not profitable for mattresses, their regular customer leaves.

            Limitations are and will be, but they find options to get around or replace. The matter with them has already gone, how successful it will be, they themselves will figure it out themselves.

    Well, right .. If you can produce the same thing, with the same performance characteristics, why buy it from someone ..
    Something Aselsan is a noble company .. well done, well. 30 years ago they didn’t even produce cartridges .. and now 70% of the weapons are produced by ourselves

    Why not if your performance characteristics are not worse than American ones. And the money for its military-industrial complex and, as it were, the prestige of its armed forces at the level. But again, the Americans will be offended by the Turks, but these are already their internal problems.

    What will the comrades from Israel say about the confrontation with their C-MUSIC system?
    As far as I understand the received image, the processor compares the image with the "standard" target. Stored in memory.
    Lasers beg for it, but there are many nuances — all the same, the dimensions and speed of the rocket require high accuracy of laser guidance and power, especially if it is on a seeker. before the matrix, there is a "light filter".

      I also realized that that “foggy” phrase most likely means that the “heat-detecting” GOS (pointing to the thermal “spot”) was replaced by the thermal-imaging GOS (pointing to the thermal “image”).

    It is an expected and pragmatic solution.
    Firstly, licensed production is not a one-time payment and purchase of technology in the bud, every PU and rocket released, kindly pay Uncle Sam.
    Secondly, the Turks are increasing not only production in the interests of their own armed forces, but also arms exports. Export of licensed weapons or using third-country production units is essentially impossible without the consent of the government of the country of origin. The Turks have already stifled attempts to export self-propelled guns Firtin, light attack helicopter Attack, etc. At the same time, export contracts for the supply of ships, wheeled armored personnel carriers and a medium tank showed that the products of the Turkish military-industrial complex are quite competitive.

    In addition to a portable MANPADS with a missile with GOS, the Turks are working on the creation of MANPADS similar to the Swedish MANPADS RBS-70 with a laser guidance system.
