In February, Turkey started deploying ATILGAN pedestal-mounted air defence systems along the border with Syria’s Greater Idlib. The Atilgan was developed by Turkey’s defense company ASELSAN. It is based on a M113 armored vehicle. The system can be armed with eight FIM-92 Stinger anti-aircraft missiles, made in Turkey by ROKETSAN. The missile’s range, that’s limited to 4,8 km, makes the Atilgan a short-range system.
