Harris has supplied its Hornet weapons carriage system to Turkey’s Baykar Makina for integration on the company’s Bayraktar TB2 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
As IHS Jane’s previously reported, a Roketsan Smart Micro Munition (SMM) was successfully dropped from the aircraft on 17 December 2015.
The SMM is a laser-guided gliding munition derived from Roketsan’s UMTAS (also known as Mizrak) anti-tank guided missile and the Çirit laser-guided rocket. The small unpowered weapon combines the seeker from the Çirit with most of the components of the UMTAS, minus its rocket motor.
