Global Industrial & Defence Solutions (GIDS) showcased three missiles from the BURQ series of weapon systems, alongside the Shahpar-II and III MALE UAVs, at the Defence Services Asia Exhibition (DSA) 2024. These laser-guided weapons are designed to equip combat drones and attack helicopters for precision strikes.

The 3 members of the BURQ family showcased and unveiled at DSA 2024 are BURQ-45P, BURQ-50P, and BURQ-25G, all differ in warhead size, guidance options, and range.

  • BURQ-50P (Under-Qualification): is a heavier option with a 20kg warhead. It offers three guidance configurations: IMU/GPS, IMU/GPS/Gimb Laser, and IMU/GPS/Fixed Laser. The BURQ-50P has a longer range of 2.5 to 15 kilometers.
  • BURQ-25G (Under-Development): is the smallest and lightest munition in the series, weighing only 25kg. It has an 8kg blast fragmentation warhead and a range of 2.5 to 14 kilometers.

All three BURQ variants are designed for low-level launch and overflight (LOBL/LOAL) capabilities for targeting hostile forces with high precision ensuring minimal collateral damage.
