Roketsan, a leading Turkish defense manufacturer, has announced the successful deployment of its latest product, the CIRIT Laser-Guided Missile.

This state-of-the-art weapon is designed to bridge the tactical gap between unguided 2.75″ rockets and guided anti-tank missiles, offering a highly precise and cost-effective solution for engaging both lightly armored and unarmored stationary and moving targets.

The CIRIT missile has been developed for deployment from land, sea and air platforms, enhancing its versatility and ease of integration across different military assets.

The missile’s multifaceted design allows it to be easily adapted for various platforms, confirming its operational efficacy in air-to-ground and ground-to-ground engagements.

Currently, the CIRIT missile is operational on several platforms, including the T129 ATAK Attack Helicopter, the AH-1W SuperCobra Attack Helicopter and a ground-based CIRIT launch vehicle.

It is also being adopted by numerous foreign platforms, which signals its international appeal and reliability.

This launch marks a significant milestone as CIRIT is the first guided missile developed in Türkiye – setting a national precedent.

Moreover, it is the first of its class to be qualified globally, underscoring Türkiye’s growing capabilities and innovation in the defense sector.

The introduction of the CIRIT missile represents a critical advancement in Türkiye’s defense technology, providing enhanced precision and efficiency in modern warfare.
