Making statements about the Turkish defence industry in CNNTürk's live broadcast, Demir said, "With L-UMTAS and UMTAS, we are at a level to destroy a target at a range of 16 km.". The first configuration models of L-UMTAS and UMTAS could reach targets at a range of eight kilometres.
Long-Range Anti-Tank Missile System [UMTAS] is an anti-tank precision-guided missile system that has been developed for integration primarily with attack helicopters. Its Imaging Infrared Seeker permits day and night use in all adverse weather conditions.
The missile has fire-and-update flight modes that permit lock-on before or after launch through the RF data link between the launcher and the missile. Its precision guidance and control capability, together with its tandem armour piercing warhead, make UMTAS an effective weapon system against armoured targets.
Laser-Guided Long Range Anti-Tank Missile System [L-UMTAS] is an anti-tank precision-guided missile system developed primarily for integration with helicopter platforms.
The laser guidance and tandem armour-piercing warhead features of L-UMTAS ensure its effectiveness against both static and mobile targets. The missile can lock onto the target before or after launch.
