Turkey develops advanced Bora-2 long-range missile

27 April 2018

Defence Minister Nurettin Canikli said on 26 April that Turkey is developing a more advanced missile with a greater range than the Bora-1 (Storm) long-range surface-to-surface missile system, according to the Milliyet daily.

Canikli did not give details about the new missile, the Bora-2, but recalled that the 280 km range Bora-1 is domestically produced and entered service in May 2017.

The export version is called Kaan (Khan).

Canikli pointed out that the range of these missiles is limited to 300 km as Turkey has to abide by rules prohibiting a longer range, referring to the Missile Technology Control Regime, which Turkey has signed.
