09 February 2017

Turkey has made public it has been developing a long-range surface-to-surface missile system called 'Bora' (Storm).

The Undersecretariat for Defence Industries (SSM) stated that the Project 'B' missile system had been developed by Roketsan in order to "meet the long range surface-to-surface missile requirement of the Turkish Land Forces Command [TLFC] through local design and production."

The SSM added that an agreement to design, qualify, and serially produce the missiles was signed with Roketsan in November 2009.

"Delivery of the missiles continues in line with the schedule," it said, but did not provide any images or further details of the system, such as its range or payload.
