Turkish Army Bolsters Security With New Anti-tank Missile System

Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) will begin operating locally made launching system and anti-tank missiles starting this month.

The OMTAS Medium Range Anti-Tank Weapon System -- developed by Turkish defense giant Roketsan -- has been accepted after succeeding in tests, a Defense Ministry official who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media, told Anadolu Agency last week.

The Turkish Armed Forces acquired one OMTAS Launching System and eight OMTAS anti-tank missiles on June 2 and these systems will be in the Turkish Land Forces' inventory in June, added the source.

OMTAS was developed by Roketsan to eliminate armored threats in the range of four kilometers (2.4 miles) and it has two shooting modes, fire and forget and fire and update.
