Turkey’s defense firm Roketsan last week delivered the 303 mm Guided Missile System, also known as KASIRGA (Hurricane), to the Turkish military.
“The KASIRGA is a system developed entirely by Roketsan and has an extreme accuracy up to 120-kilometer range. Turkey has become a country that meets its needs with domestic and national opportunities as it also develops these technologies and sells them to friendly and brotherly countries,” Defense Minister Fikri Işık was quoted as saying by Hurriyet Daily during a ceremony held in the capital Ankara on Nov. 16.
The minister said KASIRGA is a “100 percent native and national system” produced by Turkish engineers, designers and workers, stressing that it is a good example of the increase in the Turkish Armed Forces’ (TSK) striking ability.
The KASIRGA 302 mm missile and weapon system can intensively and effectively fire critical point targets from 30 kilometers to 120 kilometers, thanks to its high striking and destroying capability.
The system will provide excellent fire support to maneuvering units by providing timely, accurate and high fire power, according to experts.
