The SUNGAR Low Altitude Air Defence Missile System, which Roketsan developed after the version that could only be launched from the platform, can now be launched from the shoulder by a single soldier.
President of Defence Industry Ismail Demir announced the news on social media.
“Our portable air defence missile system SUNGUR is at the service of Turkish soldiers with its new version launched from the shoulder by a single soldier after platforms!” said Prof. İsmail Demir.
He continued, “We delivered the first batch of SUNGUR Missile System to the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF), which is effective against UAVs, jets, and helicopters. The SUNGUR Missile System stands out with its imaging infrared-seeking head, which is resistant to deception countermeasures with a longer range than its counterparts, and the ability to lock on to an enemy from a greater distance than the eye can see. We will no longer be dependent on abroad, I congratulate everyone who contributed to the design, development, and production of this system. Like we always say; if something is man-made, we can do it the best. Greetings to our defence industry family who work with the love of this country and nation!”
