Turkey tested the GOKCE guidance system, which is an analogue of the American Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) system

Turkey continues to actively develop weapons for unmanned aerial vehicles aviation and integrate them into drone weapon systems. The Turkish company Tubitak SAGE has developed the GOKCE guidance system, somewhat reminiscent of the American Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) guidance kit.


The new system is a set of wings and a tail block mounted on conventional free-fall bombs. The kit also includes a laser homing head mounted in front of the ammunition. All this together allows the bomb to maneuver and hit targets more accurately.

The GOKCE complex was tested on the Turkish attack drone Akinci. During the tests, the UAV hit the target with a MK-83 bomb weighing approximately 455 kg, on which the GOKCE system was installed. Reportedly, the deviation of the bomb from the target was "insignificant". The drone illuminated the target with a laser from a height of about 6 km.

In the summer, a laser-guided missile, previously used only by manned aircraft, was introduced into the Akinci arsenal. We are talking about the rocket LGK-82. Akinci also received the SOM (Stand-off Mühimmat Seyir Füzesi) cruise missile.

Akıncı belongs to the class of "heavy" drones. The drone can fly in a fully automatic mode, land and take off independently. Maximum speed - 360 km / h, cruising - 240 km / h. The drone is equipped with an AFAR radar, six computers with artificial intelligence, a guidance system and six weapon suspension points with a total weight of 1350 kilograms.

    There is no main characteristic - the range of application

      That's just it .. Will a free-falling bomb fly far, even with wings from a slow-moving aircraft?

        The question is somewhat different - will such a device fly far if free-falling, albeit corrected, ABs are used?

          Miles sorry! if with wings, then they are no longer free-falling, but planning! stop

            In theory, it plans everything, even bricks. request

              Well ... you can’t argue against theory! No. "Theoretically" and tanks fly! ... only low, low! bully

        2 km from the drop site, you should not expect from her the range of glide bombs, which have a glide ratio of 10-20.

        This is not even a wing, but a guidance plane.

      If JDAM has 15 miles written, then I doubt that the Turks have further. The most important thing is that the UAV must enter the air defense coverage area for such a drop

        15 miles, but with an altitude of 12000 m and a speed of 900 km / h. What an airplane can provide, but a drone can’t even come close.

    Is Turkey trying to create weapons similar to those created in the USA or in Western Europe?
