“Significantly superior to analogues”: Turkey has created the Sungur short-range air defense system

Turkey's Sungur anti-aircraft missile defense system has successfully passed tests and is ready to enter service. This was announced yesterday by the head of the Turkish defense industry Ismail Demir on his Twitter page. This information was published by the Turkish agency Anadolu.


It can be used by the naval fleetand also be integrated for ground and air platforms. The Sungur air defense system was developed by Roketsan with the participation of other Turkish manufacturers. The missile can be launched from a mobile platform with the possibility of 360-degree rotation. The complex has the ability to detect, identify and track targets day and night.

Due to the high maneuverability and accuracy used by the titanium alloy, the aiming range of the Sungur air defense systems, according to Turkish media, "significantly exceeds the analogues of its class."


The basis of the Sungur complex is a rocket from a Turkish-made portable anti-aircraft missile system PorSav (Portatif Savunma). Two well-known companies took part in its development - Roketsan and Aselsan.

The launcher was mounted on the chassis of an armored Kirpi car with a 4x4 wheel arrangement. Deliveries of such armored vehicles to the Turkish army began in 2014.

Other air defense niches in Turkey are already experiencing HISAR short-range and medium-range air defense systems of their own production.

    The Turks have made a breakthrough in the creation of their own military-industrial complex over the past 10 years. I won’t be surprised that in a couple of years long-range air defense will appear

          If this is Turkish air defense, why are there inscriptions on the remote control in English?
          By the way, the flag partially overlaps the all-round visibility. On such a machine, nothing should interfere with the launch of a rocket in any direction.

              It is clear that HISAR-U is approaching from 100 km, but 400 km like the C400 should be tried. I’m not saying that they won’t do it. I have the best bar in the class, I’m talking about them. The same supplies of C400 will make it possible to quickly make air defense systems with a range of 200-250 km, which is already very good.

          if the Turks had a real air defense approaching with an interception range of 100 km, they would never have bought a c400, but would have invested this money in the purchase and further improvement of their air defense systems!
          maybe Turkey has plans and some achievements on long-range air defense, but this is all at an embryonic level .. and many more years will pass before they put real long-range air defense systems into the troops.

        It’s not only about the Air Defense. 40 years ago they exported everything, and now they provide the army with 75% of their own weapons. And this means the development of industry, the creation of a large number of jobs. + They began to export weapons. That’s a feat. 40 years ago there wasn’t more than one normal weapons engineer. And now there are a lot of them

      Do not exaggerate, a good "armored car" no more, the same as the Typhoons.

    a missile from the man-portable air defense system, which means that the ceiling will be at a maximum of 4 km .. well, to fight against a UAV, it’s suitable for extremes against junk like mig21, but there’s nothing to catch against modern aircraft. It would be better if they created a normal medium-range air defense system, the same Iranians under sanctions succeeded in this matter ..

        The average range is 40-50 km. in range and 10-12 km. in height. How long does the Turkish "karamultuk" shoot?

          Yemeni decision from an excess of missiles and lack of media, a thing in itself, for that theater. As I understand it, the Turks are building their layered air defense. Sungur, Korkut, HisarA for near zone, HisarA / O short range, Hisar O / U medium range.

        be silent if you do not think. The most important advantage of a rocket disappears: figurative !! A fighter with MANPADS is practically invisible from above. This armored fool to slam even from the air, even from the ground is much easier.

    Turkey more and more begins to arm its army with weapons not only of its own production, but also of its own design. Starting with the licensed release of NATO weapons, primarily American ones, the Turks are now putting their developments on their conveyors and this can only speak about the huge ambitions of the Turkish leadership and personally Erdogan

    They have already written about the armored car. The American Hydra-70 is taken as a basis. Unguided rocket. airbasing. Quite reliable missile, range 11 km. A guidance and control unit was created for it, the engine was modified, and a Dart MANPADS was obtained. The declared range is up to 15 km. It seems like it has been sold to the emirates since 14. This missile was installed on an armored car, the guidance system was changed again. It can be placed anywhere, as long as there are guides from Hydra. Main characteristics
    from the dart.

      I think you're confusing cars.
      The basis of the Sungur complex is a rocket from a Turkish-made portable anti-aircraft missile system PorSav (Portatif Savunma).

    A country that 30-40 years ago was completely dependent on external supplies, today provides its army with 75% of its own weapons .. Moreover, these 75% are not considered the limit .. They have developed a government program that does everything to turn these 75 into everything 100 ... people work yes

    There is no all-round radar, so you need to work in pairs. The tracking ranges are infrared and optical, so no breakthrough is visible

    A MANPADS with a turret and some kind of surveillance device .... how could this be better than other similar low-cost ersatz-air defense systems? Here everything depends on 50% of the MANPADS (even in the suitability, and not the best, Turkish has doubts) and 50% on the automatic aiming system from an external source (about this - silence).
    The Tiger with the Needle or the ancient Avenger is probably better ...

    Put MANPADS on the chassis and rejoice. Why? That MANPADS are now easier to destroy? What is the advantage of this system from MANPADS in the trunk? Four fighters hidden in the bushes are much worse than this wonder

    Installing MANPADS on the chassis I think is certainly harmful. Evidence:
    Situation No. 1. Motorized rifle company. 4 platoons, 12 infantry fighting vehicles. Each platoon normally has 1 MANPADS crew, that is, every third BMP carries anti-aircraft missiles inside. The company is on the march. The sudden appearance of a couple of helicopters. An air raid alert is announced. Four BMPs "spit out" MANPADS calculations, which simultaneously attack helicopters from four points (dispersed).

    Situation number 2. Everything is the same, only some wise guy decided to put these same four MANPADS on an armored car. Company on the march. Helicopter raid. Air alert. Fire opens ONE !! anti-aircraft point. True, massive.

    Question: whose air defense is better?
