Roketsan announced at social media accounts that, the compnay's new anti-tank missile LUMTAS-GM hit the target 16 km away in the firing test. LUMTAS-GM is the first member of ROKETSAN’s UMTAS-GM family, which will include two versions. UMTAS-GM Block 1 will have two variants, like the UMTAS, one with a semi-active laser seeker and the other with an IIR seeker.
