Roketsan's TRLG-230 missile system was developed to hit targets marked by UAVs and UAVs from land, and images of test firing were published for the first time.
He told Defense Industry Analyst Kadir Doğan about the critical features of the ammunition, which President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced by saying, "This new development will strengthen the strength of our soldiers at the front."
Doğan reminded that the TRLG-230 is a laser-guided missile system, and reminded that Roketsan previously integrated laser guidance into the TRG-230 ammunition.
Reminding that non-guided ammunition has a disadvantage against dynamic targets, Doğan said, “Laser guided ammunition has become much more important in recent years, especially with the development of Unmanned Aerial Systems and Stabilized Imaging Systems (ISP) of these systems. Targets that are 'illuminated' by various elements, especially unmanned aerial systems, can be destroyed very precisely with such land-based ammunition. " said.
WE CAN HIT CRITICAL TARGETS WITH HIGH PRECISION
"What will be the advantages of the TRLG-230 missile to the TSK?" Replying to the question, Doğan said:
“These types of ammunition provide a serious advantage to the forces, especially in two aspects. The first is the ability to destroy with high sensitivity to dynamic targets. This skill ensures that critical targets are destroyed with high precision in dynamic battlefields. This is also a very serious situation that affects the result in the war zones. The second issue is cost effectiveness. Such products can be used in a much more cost-effective way compared to other platforms, due to their small CEP values and being based on portable land. "
Stating that the TRLG-230 will strengthen the hand of the Turkish Armed Forces in the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean, Doğan said, “It has been announced that the TRLG-230 has an effective range of 70 km. Looking only at the effective range of these elements may not give very accurate results here, because these are mobile systems. Such elements can provide a serious advantage in instantly destroying critical targets, especially in low-intensity conflicts.
IT WILL BE A DISSUTE ELEMENT
Such guided munitions are systems that can have a very high impact on the field. This comes back to you as a deterrent. Especially when we look at the recent events in the Mediterranean and Aegean, we see how important these deterrent elements are. Looking at the location of the islands illegally armed by Greece, it would not be wrong to say that this or such platforms can emerge as a serious deterrent in this struggle that has emerged ”.

JOINT MOBILITY IS A GREAT SUCCESS
Turkey's recent joint mobility Noting that it is used effectively and be hit quite critical Dogan said:
“The most important issue for me is that this ammunition fires at the target marked from an Unmanned Aerial System, because this is a great success in terms of the“ joint operation capability ”that I have always mentioned. The more the "awareness" of Unmanned Aerial Systems can be shared with other elements, the more the effectiveness of those elements increases. Transferring data from an unmanned aerial system to a land-based ammunition in this way is also important for data communication integration. Turkey, every day on the way to put "joint operations capability" increases. If this development continues at the same momentum, the developments will have much more impact on the field and the table ”- NEW ŞAFAK
