Long Range Antitank Missile System known as “UMTAS” has been designed to fulfill the requirements of attack helicopters against modern main battle tanks with heavy armor penetration. The system is capable of operating under all weather and day/night conditions with “Fire and Forget” and “Fire and Update” modes with a maximum range of 8 km. UMTAS, with the flexibility provided by its Lock-On-Before Launch, Lock-On-After Launch, Lock-On-Update capabilities, offers extensive engagement to targets behind the mask position with adjustable hit point and enabling damage assessment.

Long Range Antitank Missile System comes in two versions; the primary version is equipped with Laser Seeker named “L-UMTAS” and the follow-up version will incorporate an Imaging Infra-Red (IIR) Seeker to be used from a common launcher. Both are equipped with the state-of-the-art technologies making it effective against all armored threats of the modern battlefield. The development and qualification phases of the Laser version L-UMTAS were completed in 2015. L-UMTAS missile has demonstrated its capability from T-129 ATAK helicopter against land targets and from SH-60 Sea Hawk against sea targets. With the success of these firing tests, L-UMTAS production has been initiated for the Turkish Armed Forces to be delivered within 2016.

The L-UMTAS and CİRİT, defined as the official missile systems of the T-129 ATAK, use the common designation characteristics that are able to combine both systems in the same configuration for optimized solution enabling a more lethal effect. L-UMTAS can be integrated on various platforms such as Helicopter, UAV, Land Vehicle, Stationary Platform, Light Assault Aircraft, and Naval Platforms.
