Turkey announced the acceleration of work on the creation of its own missile defense system

Turkey announced the acceleration of work on the creation of its own anti-missile defense (ABM) system. The main work in this direction is carried out by the Turkish company Roketsan.


The head of the company, Faruk Yigit, said that today the main task for employees is to reduce dependence on external suppliers in terms of missile defense.

It should be recalled that earlier Turkey tried to create a missile defense system using the American Patriot anti-aircraft missile system, although it is difficult to call these systems specifically anti-missile systems. Ankara has repeatedly asked Washington for permission to supply it with these air defense systems. But no permission came from Washington. After that, the Turkish authorities turned to Russia, as a result of which the Turkish armed forces received the S-400 air defense system. Because of this, Washington imposed sanctions against Ankara.

Now Turkey claims that they have their own technological solutions for the creation of interceptor missiles that can intercept ballistic missiles.

Faruk Yigit:

In addition to our Hisar and Siper air defense systems, we will accelerate our research into the design and development of technologies to create missile defense systems that can intercept ballistic missiles.

Turkish defense industry researcher Anil Sahin notes that today Turkey has problems with guaranteed interception technologies for warheads, which are used in conjunction with delivery vehicles - ballistic missiles. For such guarantees to increase, Turkey needs missile launch tracking systems.

Anil Shahin:

In this regard, the work on the missile defense system is a multistage activity that covers several defense enterprises and allows the use of a spectrum of space activities.

It is expected that Turkish missile defense systems will enter service in 2023.

    Which opponents of Turkey are going to fire ballistic missiles at it? The logic of the Turkish leadership is not entirely clear.

      Greece and its master France are potential enemies of Turkey.

        Not a clever boz kurtenysh, if Greece sets out to fire at Turkey it is possible without ballistic missiles. Go teach geography.

          Not a clever Greek, the distance between Greece and Turkey's key military facilities is more than 500 km, and then ballistic missiles are in the subject. But the main thing is if Greece has a goal to go 1 on 1 to Turkey, then Greece will remain in history in a week. Therefore, Greece incites other countries against Turkey.
          But its owner France is a real rival for Turkey from whom it is worth defending itself.

            Boz kurtenish why should we attack you? We do not have a demographic boom and ambitions do not put pressure on the brain. Enemies, unlike you, we prefer to look inside. Do you think you have all the problems solely because of the neighbors. Whatever you attack, you need to make your victory Pirova. Western Turkey can be reached even without ballistic missiles, not a clever fool.

              Not very knowledgeable Greek I will say that western Turkey is velvet beaches and a different kind of tourist sector. Well, if you decide to hit the tourists in swimming trunks, then a lot of Europeans will be transferred from allies to enemies))))) Although there is nothing more than incitement from you sometimes you do not expect.

                There are more inhabitants in eastern Thrace than in Greece, the flow of refugees to Anatolia will greatly help the Turkish economy. I ask why we should attack, there are practically no Greeks left in Turkey. If it turns out to get hold of territories, it will not work to expel residents from these territories. Getting a crowd of alien elements doesn't smile at us.
                In principle, you can continue to throw poop bloodthirsty boz kurtenysh.

      The Turks have earned so much on tomatoes that they have enough to develop a missile defense system.
      I am already silent how much they earned on tourists from Russia ...

            the alignment is like this ... a friend has tickets to Antalya, for the spring, right now, I'll wave 0.5, I'll go and explain to him that he's wrong, and then you look, by the May planting of potatoes, and he and the hospitals will come out, and I will be released from the detention center ... (if he is not a used prezik, and his wife will take him away). this is my contribution to the defense of the Motherland.

            Are you proposing to ban Russians from traveling to NATO countries?
            And those who violated the ban were shot? laughing
            And who bought a Turkish tomato quartered? laughing
            fool fool fool

            What are you taking inside?

              Where did you find prohibitions and suggestions in my comments?
              Or maybe Turkey doesn't make money on tomatoes and our tourists?
              If a nuclear power plant on our loans and a gas pipe at our expense are not investments - then what?
              If someone's opinion does not correspond to your idea, does it mean that the opponent is inadequate?
              Don't turn the meaning upside down.

      Turkey has ambitions. Much is being written about this now. Naturally, you want to be an independent player in armaments. Therefore, its own rocket technology is quite logical for itself.

      There are such concepts as a probable and potential enemy. So Turkey has potential adversaries, with a BR.

      The terminology of the author is not entirely clear, what is meant by missile defense, which missiles are going to intercept, Yars, Scuds, maybe the Grad in general?

    It's okay ... everyone who can, if they deem it necessary, will do?
    The question is, what will they do ???

      The Inzhirlik airbase is covered by the Patriot air defense system.

    It is not at all clear what exactly the Turks were going to develop in this case.
    What ballistic missiles to intercept - Yars, Scuds? Maybe Grads, they're kind of ballistic too.
    And what is
    warheads used in conjunction with delivery vehicles
    how is it in russian?

    How is the acceleration of work on the creation of a Turkish pro organized?
    - 1. Either a designer from the USA / Britain / Germany / Israel or France arrived from NATO and thus accelerated?
    - 2. Or did NATO countries provide engines, drawings, components and assemblies for missiles and missile defense launchers?
    - 3. Either the Sultan commanded - and the work accelerated?

      Above, Olya has already posted a link to a publication in which, in my opinion, among other things, the history of Turkey's attempts to obtain a long-range air defense system is described in sufficient detail. I will repeat it especially for you. hi
