Transition to Domestic Systems in Air Defence

Transition to Domestic Systems in Air Defence January 16, 2018

Under the short-range, low altitude air defence system contract signed between the Turkish Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) and ASELSAN, 35-millimetre towed weapon system modernization work has been commenced with the serial production of Fire Management Device (AIC) and fragmented ammunition series.

The transition process to domestic systems has been hereby initiated with the above-mentioned products as well as the development of ASELSAN’s Self Propelled Air Defense Gun System.

The AIC will also be used on the launchers that is being developed within the scope of the HİSAR Project. On the other hand, the modernization work will provide Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) with the ability to use fragmented munitions on artillery systems that are in the TSK inventory.
