ANKARA, Turkey, Nov. 22 (UPI) — Turkish defense company Roketsan has delivered a new surface-to-surface guided missile system to the country’s military.

The 303mm guided missile is the Kasirga, or Hurricane, which was developed by Roketsan engineers.

“The Kasirga is a system developed entirely by Roketsan and has an extreme accuracy up to 120-kilometer [about 75 mile] range,” Defense Minister Fikri Işık said at a delivery ceremony. “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.”

The truck-mounted missile is intended to provide fire support to maneuvering units, Roketsan said.
