According to reports, the air defense system can intercept up to nine targets at once at a 360-degree angle with a range of up to 15.5 miles. According to the study, it was meant to defend Turkey’s ground forces from fighters, helicopters, drones, cruise missiles, and air-to-surface missiles.

Meanwhile, the development of the long-range missile defense system SIPER is still in progress and it is expected to be ready by 2023.

Earlier this year in March, the Hisar-O+ medium-range air defense system completed a test-fire, which was the longest range and the highest altitude test conducted in the country (Turkey) to date.
