CİRİT 2.75” Laser Guided Missile

The 2.75” Laser Guided Missile CİRİT, is a highly accurate and cost effective solution for armed helicopters against light armoured/unarmoured stationary and moving targets. CİRİT is a Next Generation AUR Missile, not a guidance kit, designed to fill the gap between 2.75” unguided rockets and anti-tank missiles. Although optimized for helicopter platforms, CİRİT can be easily integrated into land, naval and fixed wing platforms.

CİRİT is fired from “Smart Launcher” designed and developed by ROKETSAN. Smart Launcher increases the firing envelope of CİRİT and is compatible with MIL-STD-8591, MIL-STD-1553 and MIL-STD-1760. CİRİT is stored in a canister which makes it advantageous to load/unload and for long-term storage

CİRİT can be integrated into various platforms such as helicopters, UAVs, land vehicles, fixed land platforms, close air support aircraft, naval platforms, etc. Target designation can be done from the firing platform or from any other STANAG 3733 compatible designator.

Platforms

With its flexible architecture CİRİT can easily be integrated into different platforms. It has proven performance in various scenarios.
In addition, with its smart launcher, platform and target information can be transferred automatically to the missile before firing to enhance the performance envelope. The communication through the Smart Launcher 1760 Interface enables transfer alignment with
the position and status of the platform, environmental conditions, target coordinates and target position.

Helicopter Platforms

CİRİT was first integrated into existing AH-1W Cobra Helicopters for the requirements of the Turkish Armed Forces. It is actively used on the helicopter and has acquired “combat-proven” status. CİRİT was integrated as a main weapon of the “national” attack helicopter T-129
ATAK that has recently entered the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces

In addition to the Turkish Armed Forces, integration for existing helicopter programmes for the requirements of different countries is underway.

Other Platforms

In addition, CİRİT has been integrated into the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle platform and proven its capabilities under given dynamics.
In addition to air platforms, there is ongoing integration of CİRİT into various land platforms such as armoured tactical land vehicles, fixed/towed land platforms and onto sea platforms such as coastguard and fast patrol boats for the protection of bases and territory.
