Turkey completed the development of a new lightweight portable ATGM "Karaok"

28

Turkey has completed the creation of a new lightweight portable anti-tank missile system called "Karaok" (Black Arrow). According to Defense Turk, the entry of ATGMs into service with the Turkish army is planned by the end of this year.


According to the developers from the Roketsan company, the new complex with the Karaok anti-tank missile is capable of hitting a target at a distance of 2,5 km (previously reported a range of 1 km). The rocket itself, equipped with an Aselsan infrared seeker, has a tandem warhead and a hybrid two-stage engine. The design allows starting from an enclosed space.

The mass of a single-use ATGM (container with a rocket of 125 mm caliber) is 16 kg, length is 110 cm. The fire-and-forget complex allows hitting targets both along the line of sight and from above.


The Turkish company Roketsan announced the creation of the latest promising lightweight portable short-range anti-tank missile system back in 2018. The development of a light ATGM was commissioned by the Turkish Ministry of Defense. It is assumed that this anti-tank complex was created primarily in the interests of the Turkish special operations forces.

It is specified that a thermal imaging seeker of the Imaging Infrared (IIR) type is installed on the rocket in combination with an inertial unit, the target can be locked by the rocket both before and after launch.

    Something looks like a Javelin.

        No, the javelin attacks the target in the roof 100% of the time, unlike the conditional Spike sr1
        It is rather an analogue of this spike.

          With what fright? You should have studied its performance characteristics and operating modes. The missile has two modes of target attack: dive mode (dive angle 45 °) and direct attack in the horizontal plane.

            I have not seen a rocket hitting the roof of a tank on a single video, in a commercial.

              I'm talking about a javelin that hits 100 percent only from above.

    16kg as I understand it, a rocket in a tube, but how much does the installation itself weigh? Jewelin without installation also weighs about 16 kg. I doubt that this kind of missile is aimed at a front sight or a simple disposable sight. unclear request

      For Russia, this is an expensive pleasure - it's like shooting at a tank or other armored vehicles with a thermal imager of the latest generation.

    Are you referring to the foam "floats" in the shipping configuration? So it's easy to drop and swim on it ... Joke!

    The plumage is similar to the Javelin, of course. Although there are discrepancies in the number of stabilizer rudders: the front javelin has 8, and the rear 4. And the Turkish front and rear have 4 each ...
    And according to the principle of operation of the GOS are similar.

    But what is not shown is the reusable launcher itself with sighting means. In the photo there is only a transport and launch container of a rocket, but its layout ...

        Judging by the number of "buttery" Russians on their beaches, the Turks will receive money for the development of their space ... sad

      Firstly, not Sr1, but SR - short range. Secondly, the Spike SR weighs 9,8 kg, significantly less, and the analogue of the Spike MR is 2 kg lighter. Thirdly, there is a whole family of Spikes with a range from 1,5 to 30 km. And fourthly, Spikes have been in operation for a long time, are sold all over the world and have undergone more than one modernization. And this is only in the commercials and statements of the developers.

    If we proceed from the fact that Turkey is relatively poor, plus it uses Western experience, then most likely this missile is unified in units, for example, the GOS, and the development of those missiles that were created for the same Bayraktar strike UAV. That is, cheap and cheerful.
    The possibility of launching from the premises is definitely a huge plus.

    Interesting infa. This is already the Turks are doing ATGM, according to the type of "shot - forget". When our Rostec will start moving there?

    The Turks already have ATGMs and MANPADS with GOS IIR. And we do not have such. Shame on Russia!

    Bayraktar's missiles have primitive laser guidance.

    In February 2013, the upgraded JavelinBlock 1 ensured the capture and destruction of two targets at a distance of 4750 meters, so this Turkish pipe shaitan does not pull on the javelin.
