Turkey: Siper air defence missile hits target at 100+ km range [VIDEO]

A long-range Turkish indigenous air defence missile, Siper, was successfully test-fired and it hit the target with a range of more than 100 kilometers (62 miles).

“A New Year’s gift to our nation as we enter the Turkish Century from our defence industry,” tweeted Ismail Demir, the head of Türkiye’s Defense Industries Presidency.

The Siper project is led by Turkish defence giants Aselsan and Roketsan, as well as the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Türkiye (TUBITAK).

Besides Siper, which is expected to rival Russia’s S-400, Türkiye has also developed the Korkut, Sungur and Hisar air defence systems.
