Domestic systems, which developed in line with the requirements of the Turkish Armed Forces, take their place in the battlefield.
The Korkut self-propelled anti-aircraft gun system is spotted at Libya in the satellite images published on social media recently. Open source photos also featured Hawk launcher units and a camouflaged system thought to be radar. It did not go unnoticed that the coordinates given with the published images belong to Al-Watiya airbase.
The Korkut self-propelled anti-aircraft gun system consists of the FNSS production ACV-30 carrier vehicle and the 35 mm twin-barreled turret developed by ASELSAN. Platforms can fire 35 mm ATOM smart ammunition carrying tungsten fragments, which are also developed by ASELSAN as the main contractor and can adjust the point of detonation of the fired projectile with high precision with the programming unit located in the muzzle of the barrel. In this way, Korkut can eliminate the threat by creating a deadly cloud for the target at the optimum distance. Vehicles can also be engaged in elements such as unmanned aerial vehicles and cruise missiles. System; has a 4 kilometres firing range.
