Turkish Air Force showed footage of drone destruction with its latest Bozdo новейan missile

37

Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey “became one of the few countries in the world with its own missile weapons airborne ". According to the Turkish president, this happened after the successful tests of the Bozdogan air-to-air missile.


It is reported that during flight tests, the Bozdoğan rocket successfully hit the target with the first shot.

The production of Bozdogan missiles is carried out within the Turkish Göktuğ project. The program is being implemented by Turkish specialists from the military-industrial complex. The Turkish President thanked them for this work.

According to the latest reports, a Turkish air-to-air missile hit an unmanned aerial vehicle developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries. At the same time, the missile was launched from the Turkish Air Force F-16 fighter.

The Bozdoğan missile is a long-range missile. It is a development of the Gökdoğan missile, which has been in development since 2013, and is a short-range missile.

Footage provided to the media by the Turkish Ministry of Defense shows the missile coming off the mount located under the fighter's left wing. Further, frames from the radar screen are shown, where the Bozdogan missile marker is moving in the direction of the target.

It can be seen that the high-speed capabilities of the target are clearly inferior to the high-speed capabilities of not only the missile (which is obvious), but also the fighter from which the target was attacked. In this regard, it is difficult to talk about how effective a Turkish-made missile can be against a faster and more maneuverable target, including a manned fighter.

      Duc NATO for them is not an end in itself, in the sense of defense, but an instrument for achieving their own interests.
      It must be remembered that Turkey, in contrast to the modern "young NATO members", did not burst into a bloc like them.
      Rather, NATO (the United States) was more interested in more dense involvement of Turkey in the orbit of confrontation with the then USSR.

      What's so surprising about it? It is not pleasant to depend in any way on the mood of the supplier. Amers have seven Fridays a week, they sign contracts and leave them.

        The Turks are a good locomotive in the production of weapons and plan to export weapons for $ 10 billion a year. 7 Turkish companies are in the top 100 in terms of arms production:

        “Systems of weapons, military and special equipment of local production satisfy 70% of the needs of the Turkish armed forces, compared with 35% in 2002. During the same period, the number of defense procurement programs increased from 66 to more than 700, or from 5,5 billion dollars. up to $ 70 billion at the contract value.


        By 2023, Turkey's industry will meet 75% of the country's military needs, up from 65% in 2018. To achieve these goals, the government plans to restructure its defense export promotion system. Moreover, Turkey to open defense export promotion agencies in 20 countries». sad

        The Turkish army is one of the most "belligerent" in the region. Many of the Turkish operations run counter to the interests of the countries from which Turkey buys weapons. Those. at any time they can: prohibit, disable, etc. From that and devirification.

        The same S-400, IMHO, is in turn, if one of the "friends" wants to punish Turkey, as during the coup attempt. And of course, our own development and production, which you can make great money on.

        An example is taken from Israel, which, by applying its new developments in practice, thus indirectly makes them advertise for efficiency.

      In NATO - yes, but with the entry into the EU they have been bothering for a dozen years. Erdogan is tired of this fairy tale about the white bull. Now NATO is just a convenient temporary roof for him. And so, he now has a lot of opportunities for blackmailing the West. Starting from refugees, ending with the S-400 and the new channel (and the revision of the Montreux convention). Well, given that a large part of Turkish weapons are Lego designers from other people's spare parts, something for our own military-industrial complex must definitely be substituted for import.
      Although with a tank park for Turkey, everything will be very sad for many years to come.

In this regard, it is difficult to say how effective a Turkish-made missile can be against a faster and more maneuverable target, including a manned fighter.

    Here we are talking about the type of target and its image intensifier. Moreover, UAVs made of composite low-reflective and low-heating materials. So it is possible to hit such a target is sometimes more difficult than hitting a huge, steel, hot fighter.
    Your attempt to belittle the success of the rocket has failed.

      There is absolutely nothing to comment on here so far, because if you are talking about the difficulty of aiming at a target with a small RCS, then we still do not know from what distance the launch was made, but even if from a long distance, it is still not known from what distance the target was the seeker of the missile is captured, it can be led all the way to the stop by other means of guidance. But there is another point, long-range missiles are not created at all for the destruction of drones. So this information can simply be thrown into the trash can.

        No external guidance.

        Long-range explosive missiles have never been used in
        fighting.
        They are against bombers, scouts, transport workers.

      In the "NATO standard" this segment was not, either expensive or very expensive. In medium-long-range B-B missiles, 2,5 versions of the AIM-120 or MICA with Meteor. That's the whole choice.

        Or Israeli missiles, although this is not NATO, but derby missiles, an air-launched python, modifications of which are also used in the Spider and Kupol ground-based air defense systems, the cost of which is at least 300-350k dollars per missile. They have a recently created air-to-air modification with a range of 100 km, how much it costs, one can only assume. Countries with a small or even medium-sized wallet may not be able to buy enough, despite the ultra modernity of the rocket.

          Selenia Aspide mean? So it is practically not used by anyone as a V-V, in the air defense system mainly. And the range is rather short. By the way, the Aspide rocket engine is manufactured by the Turkish rocket manufacturer ROKETSAN. Guided to the roots of this development))

    and why should she not hit it if all favorable conditions were created for this. The Turks have a good weapon only if they shoot them exclusively in the back of the enemy.

    A modern rocket, always more maneuverable than a modern fighter.
    And the fact that the target is a drone is very indicative for those who are in the know.
    For it shows that the seeker is capable of quite far enough to capture very low-contrast and small-sized targets, which are usually drones.

    And this is a bad call.

        Not the most.
        The fact that the MiG-31 is attributed as a means of destroying large missile launchers is not painful, and it works out for him.
        Low contrast target, even for a huge Barrier.
        And her engine is also extremely low-contrast.
        The only cases of capturing and shooting down a CD precisely with the help of IR-GOS were confirmed only in Iraq, and then, they were shot down from MANPADS, in pursuit, at reference points. Point blank.

        And this drone is almost half the size of the Tomahawk-type CD and its engine is three times less ...
        Correspondingly, the thermal contrast of the exhaust is noticeably lower.

    New Turkish missiles, including ground-to-air missiles from MANPADS to medium-range air defense systems, are all links in the same chain.
    The NATO countries and Israel are characterized by the unification of air, land and sea missiles, and the Turks also follow the same path without reinventing the wheel.
