In Video: Turkey Test-Fires Indigenous Long-Range Air-Defense Missile

Screen grab from the test video which was released by ROKETSAN.

Turkey had successfully test-fired the long-range indigenous air-defense missile “Siper,” Ismail Demir, head of Turkey’s Defense Industries Presidency announced via Twitter on November 6.

Demir said that different tests on the new missile will continue. The missile is planned to enter the Turkish military’s inventory in 2023.

“Turkey will continue to produce new weapons and will have up to six different air-defense systems,” the Anadolu Agency quoted Demir as saying.

Siper, which will reportedly have a range of over 150 kilometers, is being developed by defense giants ASELSAN, ROKETSAN and the Scientific and Technological Research Council.

Turkish sources claims that the new air-defense system will rival the Russian-made S-400 long-range air-defense system. It’s worth noting that four S-400 systems are currently in service with the Air Defense Command of the Turkish Air Force.

Turkey has been working to develop its indigenous air-defense capabilities for quite some time. Several locally-made air-defense systems are expected to enter service with the Turkish military in the upcoming few years.

It needs a booster lol. S-200 says helo from 1965…

Icarus Tanović

S-200 says hello from 1954. De facto.

The Objective

From 2023 onward, your Su-35 planes are sitting ducks. That’s a promise.

Turk Destroyer

In your dreams. Hisar-A, Hisar-O, and Mim-23 deployed in Idlib and still unable to shoot down any Russian planes. If you tried, your Siper would be destroyed by a Kh-31P as soon as its radar opens up. You have no idea how easily Russia could destroy Turkey’s military ability in Syria and Turkey using its air squadron and naval assets in Tartus. Combined Kalibr, SEAD would destroy your airbases, runways, and SAM sites. Leaving Turks with zero ability to launch drones or F-16’s, SAA would have their boots on Turkish faces real quick.

The Objective

You talk really big, but realities on the ground say otherwise. You won’t stand a chance in the Mediterranean, and the black sea will not be smooth sailing either. That’s what the 1000 km anti-ship cruise missiles are for. Your ships will sink faster than you realize.

And what would Turkey be doing while you bomb their airbases? Fold their arms and watch your airbase operate in Syria? And who told you that drones need airbases? Pretty much every tarred road can hand drones in Turkey.

You can destroy the airbases. But that’s about all you can do. Because not a single Russian ship or plane would be left intact in the Mediterranean or black sea. And Turkish troops will roll into Damascus. That ends the war.

Turkey has EVERY Russian position marked in Syria. Every move is monitored. Unless you guys dig holes underground and hide like the Iranian missile forces, most of your missile launchers will be taken out within hours of hostilities.

Hisar A just completed the acceptance test last month. Engaging Russian planes in real world is part of the acceptance test. The engineers learn plenty about about your planes and how to deal with them. It reminds me of the time when Syrian rebels were launching drones against Russian outposts in Syria. Now I realize those attacks were not meant to harm Russian forces but to probe for weaknesses in Russian air defense systems. The TB2 combined all the lessons learned in those drone attacks which Russia foiled multiple times. And now even the S-400 cannot deal with the TB2, let alone other more advanced Turkish drones.

Hisar A deployment in Syria is the same procedure. You’ll realize this one day.

Lone Ranger

Lay off the LSD, its bad for you…

Icarus Tanović

I know who you are. You’re dirty muslim brotherhood pig from india living in Chicago, that used to get your self little one room crib in San Francisco, bad tripping that he is a sort of a “turk”. So, put down the candies and let the little boys go. Muhahahaha. You knowhatimsayin. Punk motherf.

Those that rule Iran are secular and not MB?!

Icarus Tanović

How about those who rules over your asshole, instead?

Lone Ranger

In Disney movies only.

Icarus Tanović

No, you misspelled that, it isn’t SU-35, what you want to say is F-35 actually.

L du Plessis

Rival the S400?? with only 150km range 😂

Lone Ranger

Its probably inferior even to the S-200.

Icarus Tanović

It is inferior to S-125, man! Really.

The Objective

It will mess up you project in Syria very soon. Finally, a no-fly zone in Idlib is within reach.

Lone Ranger

Keep dreaming Shlomo. You lost that war a long time ago

The Objective

We lost? Which means Russia won, right? Can you tell me Russia’s mission in Syria and whether they accomplished it? Idlib is the second Afghanistan.

Idlib is not Afghanistan. SAA, Russia, Iran won you lost. Most of Syria is under SAA control. Isisraeli chair farce is firing duds now. Totally ineffective. Iraq is under Iranian control. Afghanistan lost, is under Iranian, Pakistani, Chinese control. Greater Israel Project lost. New Khazaria project lost. Turkey is moving away from NATO. Meanwhile Israel managed to compromise everything the U.S. has in its inventory and guess what, its useless even again older Russian export air defense systems. Turkey tried to take Idlib, it didn’t go too well for them the last time. This time it will be a disaster for them if they try. Meanwhile the majority of the Israeli population is being genocided by Pfizer and mossad. Slow clap…

The Objective

You are funny. I seem to think you consider me an Israeli supporter. Anyway, I’ll tell you what Russia’s mission is in Syria: Reinstate Assad’s dictatorship over all of Syria and eliminate any threat to the regime. So far, that goal has not been achieved. If Turkish and American forces leave Syria, Russia still has Iran-backed militias to deal with. They number more than a hundred thousand and seldom join in the fight against Idlib rebels. their focus is maintaining the link from Iran all the way to Lebanon. And they’ll try to maintain this link even at the cost of a military clash with Russian-backed SAA.

Chris Gr

That’s right, Russia is alone in Syria.

Icarus Tanović

Is that all you got? Oy vey, Zionist.

Turk Destroyer

Unlikely. Siper will have an advanced aesa radar. S-200 would be a beast of a missile with a brand new aesa radar as well. But more expensive, outdated missile design that’s why succeeded with S-400 or s300pm2.

The Objective

What a dumb reason to give. 150 km is enough to handle all Russian planes, including the fucked up Su-57. Your most advanced reliable plane (the Su-35) cannot attack its targets from 150 km away. They must come close about 100 km and that puts them within range of this system. Even America’s F-22 cannot fight effectively from 150 km away. the same thing goes for France’s Rafel. So this range is enough to kick the asses of ALL Russian planes in Syria. the most important thing is that the missiles should be accurate and fast. And you can see from the video (immediately after launch – the last part of the video) that this missile is damn fast. It will surely sent a chill down the spines of Russian pilots in Syria.

You would have said the same of the TB2 had it not kicked your asses real bad in N-K, Syria, Libya, and soon Algeria.

Turk Destroyer

Lol delusional. Su-35 can track ground targets with radar up to 300km away and attack using anti-radiation missiles from 250km (Kh-58U) or Kh-31P (120km) away without even turning its radar on. Khibiny ECM can passively guide missiles to enemy anti air radars past 200km away.

The Objective

It tracks radar up to 300 km or 3000 km or 30,000 km. the big question is, how effective is its ability to detect those radars? Because if those radars fail in real combat like the Pantsir radars failed, then the Russian pilots are on a suicide mission.

Lone Ranger

You getting delusional.

Lone Ranger

Actually it can. The Su-35 can engage air targets up to 300km away with air to air (R-77 extended range variant) and ground targets up to 1000km away with cruise missiles(KH-59 and P800- Onyx). Turkish missile tech is 60s era. Iran is at 80s era. Better luck next time…

Lone Ranger

Left out the Kalibr…. Official max range 2500km, unofficially it can hit targets 4000km away. Compared to its size its the best long range cruise missile in service. And the Su-30, Su-34 and Su-35 can carry it. Oy oy…

The Objective

Let’s say Russia has 1millio kilometer range air-launch missiles deployed in Syria. Are you telling me that Russian forces will fight from beyond 150 km? What about air-support for ground forces? Even if these Russian planes will fight in a permissive airspace, that would be impossible. It appears you are forgetting that Syrian airspace will be hotly contested in the event of a war with Turkey. Russian planes will have to deal with drones, fighter planes, EW systems, and air-defense missiles. Insisting on fighting from 150 km away will be a recipe for defeat.

Lone Ranger

150 km is very short range. Basically Russia can hit you anywhere anytime, but you cant do the same. How many cruise missiles does Turkey have and what range do they have, and how many has Russia? Turkey is outgunned, and has inferior tech. Even Israel is struggling against Russian air defenses. And the Russians dont even sweat lol. Only nukes could defeat Russia in Syria but Israel is at a disantvanage in that case as well, because of its size and location. So Israel wont dare to risk a nuke attack. And anything else is luke warm steam at best. Bye.

Icarus Tanović

No, you ugly punk. We will fight them with long range from 15cm. Aight?

The Objective

I agree that based on the theoretical ranges of these missiles, Russian planes can fight from 150 km away. Now a question for you: Is it practical to insist on fighting from 150 km away? How can you gain territory or render air-support to ground forces, like when drones are kicking their asses? Then there is the permissiveness of the airspace. You think the Turkish airforce will just stand idly by and watch you launch missiles from 200 km away?

Finally, I noticed that Russians are even more boastful than Americans these days. Every of their weapons is invincible and must defeat the other person’s weapons. I think this mentality is a recipe for disaster. Your air defense systems have already been humiliated once. We may witness more humiliation if the Donbas situation degrades further. I think it’s a big mistake under-estimating Turkish weapons just because you have BIG paper specs. It seems like Turkey shot down one of Russia’s modern jets in 2015 without even leaving Turkish airspace. What happened to all the long-range radars integrated in those Russian planes?

You may be surprise, but I’m confident a lot of Russian planes will be shot down if they engage the Turkish armed forces in Syria. This is why they have been able to stop an Offensive on Idlib since 2018

Lone Ranger

Russian air defense systems were never humiliated. The exact opposite. They prevailed every time when used correctly. Armenia doesn’t count, those air defense systems were placed on the border and were offline deliberately waiting to be hit. Armenian leadership is CIA/mossad run, they wanted to play Russia, Azeris and Turkey against each other and failed. Oy oy… Israel is running out of options…

Icarus Tanović

Fire them without a paycheck. Better luck next time, baby. Those M60 tanks are for like old timer tank rally world championship provided by armies and FIA.

James

the russian air defense missiles from 50 years ago even better than this turkish crap

Icarus Tanović

70 years ago.

TomSawyer

It wont take long and Turkey will have much better missiles as Iran – Iranians are always boasting but in reality, they are far behind technologically

Ahson

the guppu niggers used a Persian name for it? Why didn’t they use a turkish nigger name for it? You do realize we consder turks as niggers? don’t you?

Ahson

Iran considers turks as lower caste asiatic moghal people. In case nobody here noticed, the turks used a Persian name ‘Separ’ to name this missile. Separ in Persian means shield. Motherfucker dalit didn’t have a guppu muzlim name for their missile?
