The Gürz system integrates a formidable arsenal, including a 35mm cannon and four BOZDOĞAN or GÖKDOĞAN air defense missiles, offering a versatile response to aerial threats. Key to its operation is a Fire Control Radar paired with a 4-array Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, enhancing target acquisition and tracking capabilities. Tübitak Sage General Manager Gürcan Okumuş has highlighted ongoing research to deploy GÖKDOĞAN and BOZDOĞAN missiles from ground-based platforms, broadening the system's applicability.

Türkiye's air defense architecture has traditionally relied on separate systems for low-altitude defense, including the MAR search radar on the AIC or HİSAR-A and fire control radars on Korkut vehicles. Aselsan's new hybrid system consolidates these capabilities onto a single platform, offering both search and fire control radar functionalities. This integration allows for comprehensive coverage across multiple defense layers, previously managed by the Hisar-A and Korkut systems separately.

The hybrid air defense system's unified platform approach not only simplifies the operational framework but also enhances mobility and deployment speed, critical for protecting vital areas and convoys. By covering multiple defense layers simultaneously, Aselsan's innovation offers a strategic advantage in modern air defense, emphasizing rapid response and adaptability in a volatile security environment.
