A Surface-to-Land Cruise Missile (Black Hawk) variant of ATMACA Anti-Ship Missile will be produced. A Land-to-Land Cruise Missile (Land ATMACA) Project Contract was signed between the SSB and Roketsan. The ATMACA Anti-Ship Missile developed by Roketsan for naval platforms will gain a new dimension with the Land ATMACA. It is aimed that the Land ATMACA will take its place in the inventory in 2025 as the new strike force of the Land Forces.

The Land to Land Cruise Missile (Black Sparrowhawk) Agreement was signed between the Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB) and Roketsan at IDEF. The signing ceremony was attended by SSB President Prof. Dr. İsmail Demir, Turkish Armed Forces, Roketsan and sector representatives attended.

Land ATMACA, which will be developed as a long-range cruise missile that can be launched from a tactical wheeled land vehicle in order to meet the operational needs of the Land Forces, 280 kilometers will have range.

Kara ATMACA will be one step ahead of its peers in the world with its distinctive technical and tactical features.

Land ATMACA, which will provide our Land Forces with superior operational planning capability thanks to its three-dimensional mission planning capability and long range, is aimed to take its place in the inventory in 2025 as the new strike force.
