Turkey has successfully vertically test fired missiles for the locally developed short-range Hisar-A surface-to-air missile (SAM) system, the Presidency of the Turkish Defence Industries (SSB) announced on 20 March.

“Hisar-A, during its first vertical firing test from a missile launching system, scored a 100% success against a target aircraft flying fast at a high altitude. We plan to deliver Hisar-A in 2021 and [the medium-range] Hisar-O in 2022 to the Turkish Land Forces Command,” the SSB said in a tweet.

Developed by Aselsan and Roketsan, the Hisar-A system will be carried by an ACV-30 tracked armoured vehicle and will have a range of 15 km.
