According to information published by the “Middle East Eye” website on November 23, 2022, Türkiye has delivered to Ukraine dozens of Turkish-made TRLG-230 laser-guided missiles produced by the Turkish company Roketsan that can be launched from land or air platforms.
Citing information from “Middle East Eye”, Turkey delivered dozens of TRLG-230 precision-guided missiles to Ukraine in the early summer, two sources familiar with the issue told Middle East Eye.
According to the technical information published on the official website of the Turkish company Roketsan, TRLG-230 Missile provides accurate and effective firepower on high-priority targets within ranges of 20 – 70 km. It can be launched from ROKETSAN MCL Multi-Caliber Launcher Artillery Weapon System and other platforms with compatible interfaces.
According to information published on Wikipedia, before the war, Ukraine has already signed a contract with Türkiye for the supply of an undisclosed number of Bayraktar TB2 drones. In the summer of 2022, Türkiye delivered 200 Kirpi 4×4 armored vehicles produced by the Turkish company BMC. At the same time, Ukraine has also received a wide range of ammunition including 155mm artillery rounds, MAM-L guided bombs, MAM-C guided bombs and Sungur IIR-guided missiles.
Türkiye recognized Ukraine’s independence on 16 December 1991. Diplomatic relations between the two countries were established on 3 February 1992. Türkiye has also strengthened its strategic partnership with Ukraine in the last 12 years. This partnership has encompassed different areas of cooperation, including mutually rewarding cooperation in defense.
Türkiye is also actively engaged in the modernization efforts of the Ukrainian naval forces, and recently the keel of Ukraine’s first Ada-class corvette was laid at a Turkish shipyard.
The TRLG-230 is a 230mm guided missile fully designed and developed by the Turkish company Roketsan that was unveiled for the first time during the IDEF defense exhibition in Turkey, in August 2021. Thanks to its high accuracy and high destructive power, the TRLG-230 provides intense and effective firepower against high-priority targets at ranges of 20–70 km. The system can be integrated into the K+ Weapon System and the Multi-Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL) by Roketsan, with other platforms of different types with suitable interfaces.
