Development of Turkey’s Siper high-altitude long-range air defence missile system continues successfully and a new test will be held soon, Ismail Demir, head of the Presidency of Defence Industries (SSB) said Sunday.


Demir was speaking to Anadolu Agency (AA) at the sidelines of Teknofest Azerbaijan, the first foreign edition of the leading Turkish aviation, space and technology festival.

"As Turkey puts forward ambitious projects and achieves them, we also ignite the spirit of unity, togetherness and success in the country," Demir said.

Along with that ignited spirit, the excitement, happiness, unity and solidarity among our young people is constantly developing, he said, adding: "As such projects increase, we see this in most of the defence industry projects, our project teams are working with all their strength for the happiness, welfare and security of our country. They are happy and proud to do this work."

Expressing that the tests in the Siper project continue one after another, Demir said that each test means testing a new capability, adding a new capability to the system, developing capabilities or taking it one step further.

"All of our tests have been very successful. The message that these tests give us is that we see with great pleasure that our Siper project is really on track, it is going very well," he explained.

Demir said that with such projects, Turkey will be completely excluded from "discussions such as 'Did they give the Patriots, did we buy SAMP/T, or whether an embargo was applied?'"

The Siper project is led by Turkey's defence giants Aselsan, Roketsan and the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBITAK)'s Defence Industries Research and Development Institute (SAGE).

Developed to protect strategic facilities against enemy attacks within the scope of regional air defence, Siper will allow air defence at long range and in the protection of distributed architecture.

Besides Siper, which is expected to rival Russia's S-400, the Korkut, Sungur and Hisar air defence systems are also in place, systems set to outline a layered air defence for the country, as mentioned several times by the officials.
