Turkey has successfully carried out the initial test firing of its Kemankes mini intelligent cruise missile, announced leading Turkish defence industry firm Baykar.

Bayraktar TB2 drone successfully launched a Kemankes missile from a distance of 20 kilometres (12 miles) in northwestern Edirne province. The missile reached the designated target area and accomplished its mission.

The name “Kemankes” is derived from Turkish archers in history who consistently hit their targets with utmost precision, even under the most challenging conditions.

Baykar’s nationally developed drones, including Bayraktar Akinci, Bayraktar TB2, and Bayraktar TB3, are compatible with the integration of Kemankes.



The missile operates autonomously with an autopilot system supported by artificial intelligence and has a flight duration of one hour.

Kemankes is capable of operating both day and night and exhibits resistance to electronic jamming attempts owing to its anti-jamming capabilities.

The missile establishes all line-of-sight communications through the primary unmanned platform to which it is attached. Consequently, it can transmit telemetry data and video to the ground control station via the attached primary platform.
