The integration of Precision Guidance Kit / Hassas Güdüm Kiti (HGK) and Wing-Assisted Guidance Kit / Kanatlı Güdüm Kiti (KGK) developed by Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey Defense Industries Research And Development Institute (TÜBİTAK SAGE), into twin-engine AKSUNGUR and single engine ANKA+ UAVs has begun.
We increase the variety of ammunition according to the needs of HvKK. Conversion of Mk-83 grenade into air-to-land ammunition with smart and precise strike capability. Qualification tests of HGK-83 ammunition developed by AS completed, now ready for mass production.
Placing the emphasis on the fact that Turkey is capable of integrating indigenous ammunition via indigenous softwares into its UAVs, Okumuş stated, “This capability will be a force multiplier in the field.”
Soon, ANKA+ and AKSUNGUR will be involved in the inventory of security forces.
ANKA+, which is a developed version of ANKA, has been evolved to have a higher capacity of carrying weapons, through its upgraded capacity of payloads. AKSUNGUR UAV has a payload capacity of 750 kg. After the integration of HGK and KGK has been completed, the UAVs’ capabilities will be boosted in the field. The effectiveness of the UAVs are estimated to be bolstered upon AKSUNGUR in the inventory.
KGK developed by TÜBİTAK SAGE and manufactured by Kale Group provides a high precision strike capability within a range of up to 37 km when released at low altitude and 111 km at high altitude, depending upon the carrier platform.
