Turkey has supplied Ukraine with dozens of TRLG-230 precision-guided missiles, The Middle East Eye reported on November 23, citing two sources familiar with the issue.
The TRLG-230, which was developed by Turkey’s defense contractor Roketsan, is guided by a GPS-aided inertial navigation systems and a semi-active laser seeker. The artillery missile has a range of 20-70 kilometers and carries a high-explosive warhead that weights 42 kg.
The Middle East Eye said that around 50 TRLG-230 missiles were shipped to Ukraine in the early summer. One source told the news outlet that as many as 200 missiles could have been shipped, so far.
TRLG-230 missile can be launched from Roketsan MCL [Multi-Caliber Launcher] system and other platforms with compatible interfaces.
Undated footage surfaced on Ukrainian social media on November 22 allegedly showing a TRLG-230 missile being fired at Russian military targets in Ukraine, from what appears to be a MCL system.
The TRLG-230 missile flexible laser guidance system allows it to hit ground targets from a long distance with an accuracy of two meters. The target can be illuminated from the ground by an infantry-held or a vehicle-mounted laser marker, or from the air by some drones like the Baykar Bayraktar TB2. Turkey supplied dozens of drones of this type to Ukraine over the last two years.
Turkey didn’t not halt military cooperation with Ukraine after the beginning of the Russian special military operation in the country. However, unlike other NATO states, Turkish military support is mostly not free of charge. Despite this support, Ankara has so far maintained close relations with Moscow.
Sell Pantzir to the kurds in iraq and syria.
Just business no hard feelings just like the turks are doing.
Your pantsirs are obsolete. SF just reported that Turkish drone strike hit a PKK positing right beside Russian troops. You think if the Russian anti aircraft systems had spotted the drones they won’t shoot it down? It means Russia still can’t see Turkey’s drones.
You know it’s because putin somehow thinks he can trust muslims as erdogan and kadirov. I hope the price in russian blood will not be too high that he will have to pay to understand his mistake.
If those drones threatened any Russian assets —- there isn’t a chance in hell they wouldn’t have been taken out, fool.
Russian has taken out HUNDREDS of Turkish drones in uKRAPistan…. WITH the Pansirs (sure wouldn’t be cost effective to take out $30,000 drones with multi million dollar missiles of the S-400)
Russia is under no obligation to protect the PKK —- after all, they are allied with fahclst amerika — why should Russia expend costly ammunition or rockets to protect them ?
You’re stupider than you smell, ya fucking retard.
that is absolutely true. Kurds helped Americunts steal Syria’s natural wealth in exchange for part of Syrian territory under Kurd self-government. No mercy with them
a drone bombing a targe just a few kilometers from your location is defnintely a threat. You’ll be justified to shoot it down.
You don’t have a fucking clue what you’re talking about, ya dumb fucking cunt
Go back home, retard —- your mother’s horny again.
Dumbo trying to fly again
HUNDREDS HAHAHAHA, Russia said 1000 bayraktar TB2 was destroyed 1000. American and russians propaganda are so funny
No but they can see Turkey.
And Turkey can see them right up to Moscow
@kotromanic: You are the guys who first attacked the Muslims. Your indiscriminate boming of civilians is well-documented and won’t be forgotten nor forgiven in a hurry. Erdogan, being a true Muslims is definitely not happy with Russia over its killing of hundreds of thousands in Syria. Russia claims it’s collateral damage. But why is Russia’s conduct in Ukraine more cautious towards civilian casualties? Which of these two countries have been a bigger war for Russia? It also seems Russia is protecting the PKK in Syria. In that case, Turkey did the right thing. Putin can either stop supporting the PKK or increase its support and risk facing more deadly Turkish weapons in Ukriane. His choice.
Very fair. And KGB knows how to sell this weapons secretly. And not Pantzir’s, but 100 of western captured MANPADS in Donbass. Will be enough. Exactly how the CIA operate in the middle east. Turn the same blow on the turk head. Nobody can say it’s russian weapons, but americunt shithole weapons. If Putin don’t do that I will add another percentage of disbelieve to all this staged theater. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. Do it and enjoy karma ! Kurds will be delighted. Only one problem: kurds are infested with CIA agents.
You have to know how to use it. before they learnt how to use it will be 💥 boom
Turkey is NATO
So it hurts for Turkey to just sell weapons but it doesn’t hurt for Russia to kill hundreds of thousands of civilians in Syria. Russia has the blood of innocent Syrian Muslims on its hands whether you admit it or not. This is why I sometimes don’t give a fuck that the U.S. is killing many Russian troops with its weapons in Ukraine. Two evil bullies killing each other, which is good for world peace. I hope the Ukrainian war takes the lives of hundreds of thousands of Russian troops as payback for what they did in Syria. Russia bombed civilians indiscriminately because they were Muslims. When it comes to Ukraine, they are being extremely cautious with civilians. BTW I don’t believe this news. How can Russia accept Turkey as a neutral ally when Turkey is selling Ukraine these deadly weapons? Russia has offered Turkey so many economic benefits but the U.S is attacking Turkey’s economy. Why would Erdogan risk his ties to Putin by selling these weapons?
Typical Turk only objective as long as turkey is not concerned.
No Muslims and Islamists are innocent.
They all have a collective responsibility for perpetuating illiteracy and a culture of murder by worshiping a mythological fantasy god.
The only way to eradicate illiteracy and the culture of murder is to liquidate them all.
Some willingly sacrifice their lives by fleeing the Muslim crap countries to Europe, where they are unwanted.
In the Mediterranean, many have drowned and there are corpses floating everywhere.
Yet, they make up nearly 30% of your world and counting. They get stronger by the day as their countries continue to develop new weapons. Their weapons have killed thousands of your Rusky soldiers. They prevented you taking Idlib. They can eliminate your presence in Syria. They are nuclear armed and forging alliances. I can go on and on. But i think you get the message.
If it is true that Turkey did supply this weapon, then it could be because of Russia’s protection or even arming of the Kurds.
Your US Allies are using the kurds to prevent the syrians to get access to their own resources. It’s them who arm them and train them.
Erdogan thinks he can play the game at which the yugoslavs and ukrainians failed horribly. Well we will see if turkey can play both sides better then those too.
Erdogan hardly ever jeorpadizes a good relationship unless absolutely necessary. I’ve read on SF that Turkish drones bombed a PKK base right beside a Russian military police outpost. Why isn’t Russia disarming those Kurds? They can clearly do that since America is no longer protecting those Kurdish forces mixed up with Russian and Syrian soldiers. Why are Assad’s forces being killed instead of the Iranians, Hezbollah, or even Americans? That’s because they are in close coordination with the PKK. It seems Erdogan’s message to Putin is, fuck your gas hub if you are going to threaten Turkey’s national security with the pKK.
Turkey has provided ISIS with weapons and medical aid for a long time.
It is more likely that Turkey has sold weapons to the Kurds even though they are officially fighting them.
A dirty Muslim Turk does everything for money.
You just went on and on about Russia FAILING to protect the PKK from Turkish drones in Syria, ya fucking retarded cunt.
Why don’t you shut your fucking hole before I shut it FOR you, retard !
Some 100 western captured MANPADS in Ukropizdan somehow reaching Kurds will solve the problem. There is only 1 problem: Rojava kurds are infested with CIA shithole.
Let the CIA Turks fight the CIA Kurds. They murdered the christians more then a century ago and are still arguing over the lands they stole toghether.
I don’t think so. CIA Turks = CIA Kurds= global peace kaput for sure.
Russia should do the same for the Kurds — see how the Turkey likes it.
Nothing personal Mr. Putin, just Turkish Bazar.
There is a very simple way to convince the c@ck-sucking turks that they are wrong. Deliver 20-30 tons of high-grade Russian explosive to Kurdish forces (of course distributed, not all to a single location), One terrosit coup per week and the @sshole Erdogan`s “yes men” would recognize very soon that delivering weapons to Ukraine was a wrong decision!
You probably are already doing that, which is why Erdogan reacted.
Lots of more Rooskie soldiers will be killed and wounded. Putin will send all kind rural, small village, small town poorly productive cannon fodder to front line in the name of Great Patriotic War bullshit. Wealthy healthy young productive Russians are escaping to west to live better life.
Erdogan is loyal to no one .
Yeah. The twink kebab leader is not even loyal to his own crotch.
TURKEY IS A SNAKE, AND THE TRUE MUSLIMS WILL CONQUER IT ONCE AGAIN. IT IS SAID IN HADITH THE MUSLIMS WILL CONQUER TURKEY WITH A FEW WORDS AND TURKEY DEFENCES WILL LAY DOWN (SEE: CONQUEST OF CONSTANTINOPLE). “One day Constantinople will be conquered. Great is the commander who will conquer it. THE CATHEDRAL WILL BE RETURNED TO THE TRUE EAST ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS
I take it you’re a Greek dreamer.
IMO, with the Lira as it is, this was just business. Maybe the Turkish admin is doing a swap for western arms donated so kindly by western cash cows and now making zelensky richer than rich. The Turkish admin know that Russian forces will deal with this business not long after entering service. maybe the kiev junta will use a few and sell the rest on.
Putin must have some or other plan up his sleeve to keep being on friendly terms with Turkey. I certainly don’t understand this.
Probably out of desperation or lack of other suitable options.
And yet for some reason Russia keeps trusting Turkey
