To replace the American Harpoon: Atmaka anti-ship missiles tested in Turkey

58

In Turkey, successful trials of the first Turkish anti-ship cruise missile Atmaka (Hawk) are reported. We are talking about a rocket, which was created by Roketsan. Ankara plans that these missiles will be able to replace the harpoon American cruise missiles in service with the Turkish Navy.


During the final phase of testing, the rocket was reportedly launched at a "long distance".

The characteristics of the Atmaka missiles indicate that they are capable of hitting a target at a distance of over 200 km.

Head of the Department of Defense Industry of Turkey Ismail Demir:

Atmaca missile successfully hit the target at a distance of just over 200 km. She is ready to be in the arsenal of our army.



It is expected that the Hawk missiles will begin to be in service with the Turkish Armed Forces this year.

The manufacturer, talking about such missiles, says that it is “precision weapon"which can be installed not only on corvettes or frigates, but also on missile boats."

It is stated that with the help of a modern data transmission channel, an anti-ship missile can be reoriented to another target while already in flight.

On the network appeared footage from testing the Atmaka rocket, which demonstrates the defeat of a surface target:

      They take ready-made NATO samples and upgrade to their needs ... well, and they are constantly fighting.

        On the "harpoon" they erased the inscription "Made in YUS" and wrote "Made in Turkey". Range over 200 km. - is it from an airplane or from the surface?

        They have technology exchange agreements and mutual deliveries. Ukrainians supply engines for the Kyrgyz Republic and drones, as well as those. missile documentation. Turks of those. documentation and samples of their drones, avionics elements.
        So this is the same Neptune rocket, only a side view - the Turkish spill.
        And on Ukraine appeared its strike drone - a copy of the Turkish.
        Here it is - the result of political mistakes in 2014. We grow and strengthen our enemies and opponents.

            And the moves for the CD have always been done in the USSR in Ukraine. For "Caliber" there was a whole epic to localize. Only by 2012, they launched production.
            When the Union in Ukraine, a lot of interesting things were done - Yuzhnoye Design Bureau, Antonova Design Bureau, Motor Sich, Nikolaev Shipyards and many, many other things.
            The total scientific potential was 6% of the global (in 2012 - about, 5%), while the USSR had at least 20%.
            For the Turks (and not only) there is a lot of interesting things left even now.

              Engines for the KR were made by Motor, but now this production is at a standstill. But there is an engine for long-range CD.

                Before that engine was installed on both the "Granat" and the X-35 - it had to fly at least 20 minutes, at least 3 hours, the status was one - "low-resource".
                I don’t know what it costs now, but I know that there was a scandal with the smuggling of such engines from decommissioned missiles from Russia to Ukraine about 3-4 years ago.
                In any case, I do not think that the production of such engines on Motor Sich will be a big problem, it is still the former flagship of the aircraft engine industry of the USSR.
                And it was cooperation with Turkey that the launch of such production could allow - for your own order for three divisions of "Neptuns" it is absolutely not profitable.
                So for all intelligence signs, we are observing the symbiosis and close cooperation of the Ukrainian and Turkish military-industrial complex. Congratulations to all of you. No.

                  That's just the point, as they explained to me that he is overclocking. It works for 45-50 seconds, accelerates the CR, then shoots back. Next, the rocket flies on its engine. For RCC, this option is not suitable.

                    The anti-ship missiles X-35, "Neptune" and this one - Turkish, everything is exactly the same as for the "Ax", "Granat", "Caliber", etc. - the accelerating TTD accelerates the CD, and then the low-resource turbojet works. This is what the turbojet was about.

    What they will succeed in, they still have to see ... but obviously, the Turks are counting on their strength, they have their own industry and reason for that!

            If there is someone who will pay a double price)) 5 years is a normal period, to establish mass production, start deliveries to your army. They have a great need for armaments, updating old ships, building new ones like plans for several dozen frigates / corvettes, UDC should be put into service next year. So with the import of weapons you need to wait.
            About Russia only obscenities. Such a potential flies into the pipe.

      in turkish perry in a drum kit

      Harpoons in inclined pu. Easy to change. And Perry has long been on the write-off, they already got the second-hand Turks. They still serve, because there is a good Standard 1. Not so long ago, they were shot down by a Chinese UAV

        I think there is no place for this on the Perry deck, especially since the vertical launching of the ESM was also thrust into the Turkish.
        Not very modern, but quite simple and seaworthy.

          I guess there's no place for Perry on this deck.

          In reality, Turkey has no competitors in the Black Sea. The fleet is really the strongest. And if they stir up their anti-ship missiles in the air version, then it will be generally gorgeous. Plus from TA of their submarines. When else will we build at least a dozen 22350M and how many of them will go to the Navy?
          Well, they can adapt their anti-ship missiles to MK-13 beams. Although this is already superfluous.
          PS: It would be better if TRV or Star pleased with such news. 1978 Uranium And Onyx is not much younger. We love to sit on old stocks.

      This is an analogue of the Ukrainian "Neptune" - they have a technology transfer agreement. A copy of "Bayraktar" appeared in Ukraine in a shock version, and the Turks got an anti-ship missile. SuKrainy are producing engines for unmanned vehicles and KR, from Turkey - components for unmanned vehicles.

    RCC has already begun to do many. It is clear that the Turks, having at hand the same Harpoons and a very serious military-industrial complex, also made their own. In my opinion, the most difficult problem that the RCC manufacturers need to solve is noise immunity. Here, as they say, we will see.
