According to him, the turret was designed as a result of a tripartite effort made by Turkish Aselsan, Kyiv-based state-run Luch Design Bureau, and privately-owned scientific development and production center Praktika, which developed and launched manufacture of the Kozak armored combat vehicles.
The presented turret designed by Aselsan can be equipped with various types of machine guns while its main weapon is Ukrainian-made Barier anti-tank missile system with extended battle load-out.
"It has four RK-2S missiles capable of hitting a target at the distance of up to 5 kilometers and piercing 800-millimeter armor covered with explosive-reactive armor. It can launch missiles equipped with high-explosive fragmentation and thermobaric warheads. The missile is guided by semi-automatic laser control system. The system can be reloaded through hatches in the roof of the armored vehicle. The turret weighs up to 400 kilograms.
"As part of the live fire test, RK-2S anti-tank guided missile hit a target moving at a distance of 1.8 kilometers in daytime. Another missile guided by the Aselsan thermal imager was fired upon an armored target at a 3-kilometer distance at night. ... All the targets were destroyed," he said.
