[Video] Close up of the missile journey from the launch pad, move and hit the target


The type of missile used in the video is Roketsan Atmaca of the Turkish army. This is the first type of anti-ship missile produced in the country. It can glide through ships before hitting the simulated targets.

For many decades, many navies have been armed with sea-based anti-ship missiles. Thanks to the curvature of the Earth, an object flies low and will avoid being detected by the enemy's radar system for a long time. Usually missiles will move at a height of about 9 meters or below a wave height to avoid being detected and shot down by an enemy's radar.

A missile flying at altitudes above 9 meters above the sea surface can be radar at a height of about 13 meters above the ground detected from a distance of 28km. If to be detected, the enemy can shoot down missiles in just 2 minutes even if it moves at supersonic speed.

In reality, however, we rarely see a scene of missiles moving near the surface of the water.

Video from military contractor Roketsan shared using multiple angles, including from under the launch pad, on the tail of the Atmaca anti-ship missile prototype. Atmaca missiles at first glance are quite similar to Russian Harpoon II or Kh-35 anti-ship missiles.

Like other types of missiles, Atmaca is launched from a rocket launcher using a rocket engine, helping to propel missiles at high speeds. After finishing the pushing process, the jet engine will be activated and help the rocket fly to the target position. Thanks to the integration of an altimeter radar, the missile can fly on the ocean waves easily without worrying about falling into the sea.

According to Turkish media, the country has developed Atmaca missiles since 2009. The missiles can operate in all weather conditions, highly effective in fighting moving and fixed targets at sea. Atmaca's maximum range is said to be about 250km.
