Shootings were carried out within the scope of the "Pedestal Mounted CİRİT Weapon System Project", which can fire UMTAS and CİRİT missiles.
In the statement made by the Ministry of National Defense, it was stated that shootings were carried out within the scope of the "Pedestal Mounted CİRİT Weapon System Project", which can fire UMTAS and CİRİT missiles. In a statement from the Ministry of National Defense,
“Additional ability to anti-tank companies kazanWithin the scope of the “Pedestal-Mounted CİRİT Weapon System Project”, which was launched with the aim of launching UMTAS and CİRİT missiles, the targets determined during the inspection and acceptance fires carried out in Konya/Karapınar were successfully hit.” expressions were used.
Confirmation tests and deliveries of the YALMAN/KMC weapon system integrated Kaplan STA will begin in 2022. we announced. Although work has been carried out for integration for a while, there was a delay of nearly 19 year in the project due to the Covid-1 pandemic.
FNSS Defense supplies 208 tracked KAPLAN and 136 wheeled PARS anti-tank vehicles to the Turkish Armed Forces within the scope of the Weapons Carrier Vehicles Project. Within the scope of the Weapons Carrier Vehicles project, a total of 184 vehicles, 76 of them KAPLAN and 4 of them PARS 4×260 STA, were to be procured from FNSS Defense.
YALMAN/KMC and KAPLAN-10 with integrated Electro Optic on the mast were showcased on August 2020. YALMAN/KMC, which has 2 UMTAS and 4 CİRİT (in a pod) on it, was also exhibited at IDEF'21.
YALMAN/KMC weapon system developed by Roketsan; It has a modular structure that can be applied to land and sea platforms and allows the use of different ammunition in the same tower. YALMAN/KMC, which is currently used in the ULAQ unmanned sea vehicle and integrated into the Burak class corvettes for test purposes; It will be able to use OMTAS, UMTAS, CİRİT and SUNGUR missiles. In addition, work continues on the integration of a 7.62mm machine gun into the weapon system.
YALMAN/KMC stands out as a special solution developed for launching Laser and Infrared Imaging Seeker (IIR) guided missiles with its high mobility, 360° rotation feature and stabilized turret system that can be controlled from within the vehicle.
Thanks to its stabilized turret, the KMC Weapon System, which provides the ability to shoot on the move up to 40 km/h, offers the user a high hit capability up to 8 km range. In addition, with the mast-mounted electro-optical system that comes with it, it can carry out reconnaissance and surveillance activities from behind the suture up to a range of 20 km.
Compared to the existing UKTK, which is lighter and has a lower payload, YALMAN/KMC can be seen as a solution that benefits more from the potential for palletized platforms with higher payloads such as KAPLAN-10. In addition to its higher firepower, the simultaneous use of different types of missiles and the ability to add new weapons to the system from time to time, and its integration into different platforms put it in a different position in terms of modularity and operational flexibility.
