The Aselsan Anti-Tank Missile Launching System is a versatile defensive and offensive weapon system that provides high effectivity against ground targets in day/night and adverse weather conditions thanks to its computer controlled fire control subsystem designed to limit the operator’s task. It is a remotely controlled and stabilized Weapon Platform carrying 4 Anti-Tank Guided Missiles (HELLFIRE, JAVELIN, KORNET-E, OMTAS, SHERSHEN etc.). The Weapon Platform can be customized in order to carry the amount of missiles required by the customer. Alongside with 4 Anti-Tank Guided missiles, the System can be configured to carry 25mm automatic cannon, 12.7 or 7.62 mm machine gun for self protection.
The System is light weight, low volume and suitable for integration with a variety of existing or new armored high mobility fighting vehicles, considerably upgrading their lethality (e.g. Nurol Makina NMS, Otokar Cobra II,...) . It allows the system to be operated from inside the vehicle with a high degree of precision to protect the gunner and/or commander from being exposed.
