The Surface-to-Surface Cruise Missile (Kara Atmaca) project has been signed between the Turkish Presidency of Defence Industries (SSB) and Roketsan. The Atmaca Anti-Ship Missile developed by Roketsan for naval platforms will take on a new dimension with the advent of Kara Atmaca.
The Kara Atmaca agreement has been signed between SSB and Roketsan, at IDEF’21. SSB President Prof. Dr. İsmail Demir, Turkish Armed Forces, Roketsan and industry representatives participated in the signing ceremony.
Developed as a long-range cruise missile that can be launched from tactical wheeled land vehicles to meet the operational needs of Land Forces, Kara Atmaca will have a range of 280 kilometers. The missile will be one step ahead of its competitors with unique technical and tactical features.
Kara Atmaca, with its 3D mission-planning capability and long-range, is expected to provide Turkish Land Forces superior operational planning capabilities. The missile is expected to enter the inventory as the new strike power in 2025. The first deliveries in the Kara Atmaca project are expected to be made in August 2025.
