Footage of a new Turkish Çakir missile hitting an air target from a drone is shown

The new ÇAKIR cruise missile, developed by the Turkish company Roketsan thanks to the efforts of domestic engineers, is successfully being tested. Footage has been published online showing the defeat of an air target of the Kyrgyz Republic launched from an attack drone Akinci.

Çakir hit the target exactly

- said the developer.

The missile was fired over the training ground in Sinop and, having flown 100 km, destroyed a conditional air target over the Black Sea. On certain sections of the route, the Kyrgyz Republic reached a speed of 800 km/h. The power plant is the nationally developed KTJ-1750 engine from Kale Arge. When launched from air carriers operating at low altitude, the rocket can be equipped with a solid propellant launch motor (booster).

Çakir is a family of missiles with a range of over 150 km (330 kg when an accelerator is installed) and a mass of 275 kg, which includes 8 different modifications responsible for destroying ships, air, ground and radar targets.

A wide range of air, land and sea platforms (airplanes, helicopters, UAVs, ground vehicles, ships) can act as carriers. The first launch of the rocket took place on March 31, 2022.

    Interesting information in light of the Turks’ attempts to create a drone carrier ship (an attempt forced by the United States’ refusal to supply the F35).
    But it is not clear what air targets the missile is aimed at at subsonic speed. With other types of targets, everything is basically clear, but with the destruction of an air target with a cruise missile at a speed of 800 km/h in certain areas (as follows from the text), it’s not very clear

      I'm guessing it's a drone. But yes, there is no universality

      8 different modifications responsible for defeating ships, air, ground and radar targets
      - tested one of the modifications. as an option, shoot down large drones.
      Although in the video the target was clearly smaller than the missile)

    “The Kyrgyz Republic reached a speed of 800 km/h” - are they serious? laughing -although if they thought of launching an air-to-air missile from a drone, they’re still single-celled laughing

      What's wrong with speed? The same tomahawk is also subsonic, like the German Taurus. But they can descend up to 10 meters above the ground and follow the terrain of the earth. And, besides, this is just the start of Turkish industry. One of the first Turkish engines, it will go further and supersonic (by the way, Turkey already has supersonic missiles, on approach to the target it goes at Mach 2.1 - IHA 230).

        Do you actually understand that we are talking about an air-to-air missile? laughing

          So you study the information in more detail. The Çakir was designed primarily as a cruise missile to attack targets on the ground. The fact that they tested it on an air target does not mean that this is its main area of ​​application. For air targets there is a whole family of supersonic missiles bozdogan, iha and others.

    In its place should be our “Hunters”. They should fly out at the first detection of various Hawks and AWACS dangerously close to the Russian borders and shoot them down with long-range missiles due to any malfunctions in the equipment...
    It's a pity for "Hunter" - do something simpler and cheaper...

    Under conditions of constant blockade, Iranians manage to create masterpieces. And these bozbashniks have riveted another stick with an engine and are jumping for joy with a tambourine.
