Turkey developed new rocket launcher system in partnership with KB LUCH

 Turkish defence giant ASELSAN has entered into an agreement with Ukrainian defence company SpecTechnoExprt and  LUCH to co-operate on the development of modern rocket launcher system for light armored vehicles. 

According to the ASELSAN’s statement Thursday, Ukrainian-made Skif missile was successfully integrated into ASELSAN’s rocket launcher system.

ASELSAN and Ukrainian defence company LUCH have been working on the integration for the last six months.


The system has passed two tests, successfully hitting targets at a range of 5 kilometers (3.1 miles).
