By Defence Industry Europe

Leading Turkish arms manufacturer Roketsan achieved a successful test of its short-range ballistic missile Tayfun (Typhoon) in the Black Sea province of Rize on Tuesday. The test marks a significant milestone for Turkey's missile capabilities.

Ismail Demir, the head of the Presidency of Defense Industries (SSB), stressed that this successful test demonstrates Turkey’s growing expertise in missile technology.



Tayfun is now Turkey’s longest-range missile to date, surpassing previous missile systems. In October 2022, during a previous test, the missile showcased its capabilities by accurately hitting a target from a distance of 560 kilometers (approximately 348 miles).

Meanwhile, the images of the Cenk ballistic missile, announced by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan following the introduction of Tayfun, were displayed for the first time by the SSB head on May 12, 2023.



With the successful test of Tayfun and the introduction of Cenk, Turkey solidifies its position as a significant player in the field of missile technology, enhancing its defense capabilities and contributing to regional security.
