Turkey’s ATMACA To Be Test Fired From Ada-class Corvette This November

Turkey’s indigenously-made ATMACA anti-ship missile will be test-fired from an Ada-class corvette in November this year.

The event will mark the first time that the Atmaca is tested at sea. The missile was recently fitted aboard the navy’s TCG Kınalıada Ada-class corvette, reports Naval News.

Developed by Roketsan, the ATMACA is a subsonic, sea-skimming guided missile that is effective against fixed and moving targets due to its resistance to countermeasures, target update, re-attack, and task cancelation capabilities, and advanced routing system (3D routing). It can carry a 250kg-class high explosive fragmentation warhead. 

The missile has a range of up to 250km and hovers low above the water and can reach the target both on a linear and a vertical plane. With this feature the missile can reach a higher altitude when it gets closer to the target and land on the target ship from right above. The target of the missile can be changed even after the missile's launch while it is highly protected against electronic jamming. The anti-ship missile completed its tests in November 2018.
