Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) and Roketsan successfully tested the Mizrak-U (UMTAS-U) anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) from the T-129 attack helicopter on 02 April, 2017.
Turkey’s defence minister Fikri Işık celebrated the successful tests by asserting that the T-129s have been armed with a potent and domestically developed solution.
The Roketsan Mizrak-U has a maximum range of 8,000 metres. It weighs 37.5 kg and is compatible with imaging infrared (IIR) and semi-active laser-homing (SALH) seekers. It can be armed with a tandem anti-armour warhead or high-explosive blast fragmentation warhead.
The TAI Hürkuş-C close air support aircraft is also expected to be equipped with the Mizrak-U.
