The latest example of the new generation weapon introduced to enhance the air-to-surface warfare capabilities of fighter aircraft is the Stand-Off Missile “SOM” which is an autonomous, long range (250 km), low observable, high precision, all weather, air to surface next generation missile to be used against highly defended, anti-access and high value, stationary and moving land/surface (ASuW) targets.

Under the serial production, SOM is integrated to the F-4E 2020 and F-16 Block 40 fighter aircraft taking part in the inventory of the Turkish Air Force (TurAF). Hence, Roketsan signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus Defence & Space for the integration of SOM on the Eurofighter TYPHOON fighter aircrafts. Integrating SOM to non-NATO platforms is relatively easy with smart integration solutions.

Due to the common requirements of TurAF and 5th Generation Fighter Program, SOM-J has been presented as an anti-surface stand-off missile for F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) aircraft. Roketsan and Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LM MFC) signed an agreement for a long-term cooperation in order to jointly develop the variants of SOM-J as well as produce, market, sell and support SOM-J in order to fulfill ASuW missile requirement of F-35 aircraft internal carriage. The serial production is expected to begin in 2018 following the flight tests from F-16 Block-40 in the 1st quarter of 2017.
