The system includes land and naval units; The system, which can protect against guided missiles, air-to-ground missiles, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, planes and helicopters, was developed with domestic and national resources.

The 20 mm Rotary Barrel Weapon System will be used in the system, which has a firing capacity of 4,000 rounds per minute and an effective range of 2,000 meters. The system, which has a firing rate of 3000-4000 rounds/min, will have a weight of 3500 kilograms and a capacity of 1500 ammunition. The project is expected to be completed next year.
