The STM-MPAC, a monohull platform, is designed to excel in both anti-surface and anti-air warfare, while effectively conducting patrols in challenging shallow waters and open seas.

With a total length of 66.2 meters and a displacement of 620 tons, the STM-MPAC is a formidable platform, optimized for high-speed operations. Its propulsion system features two gas turbines, two diesel engines, and three waterjets, allowing it to reach speeds exceeding 40 knots, with an endurance of 1,100 nautical miles at 20 knots. Despite its speed, the vessel maintains stability and maneuverability in rough sea conditions.

The vessel is equipped with advanced sensors and weaponry to ensure comprehensive defense capabilities. Its arsenal includes a 76 mm gun, two 12.7 mm stabilized guns, a point-defense missile system (PDMS), and a surface-to-surface missile (SSM) system. The craft’s combat management system is complemented by advanced radar systems, electronic support measures (ESM), electronic countermeasures (ECM), and laser warning systems.

Crew safety and efficiency are prioritized, with accommodations for 40 personnel and essential facilities like a galley, dry provision room, and cold storage. The STM-MPAC's internal systems are enhanced by state-of-the-art power generation, integrated communication, and navigation systems. Its comprehensive surveillance suite includes 3D surveillance radar, fire control radar, and electronic optics.

STM, recently secured significant contracts in different areas of defense technology. In partnership with TAIS Shipyards, STM has been commissioned by the Turkish Defense Agency to build three I-class frigates.

In addition to naval contracts, STM also received a contract for exporting the ALPAGU Fixed Wing Loitering Munition System. This innovative unmanned aerial vehicle can autonomously locate and destroy targets, leveraging image-processing technology for precision strikes.
