ALPAGUT, which will be developed with the partnership of two major companies in the defense industry, stands out with its cost-effectiveness and operational flexibility of use compared to cruise missiles.

The use and importance of Loitering Munition in wars and conflicts has been increasing recently. With the increase in this importance, ROKETSAN and STM, two leading companies in the Turkish defense industry, joined forces to develop ALPAGUT with the aim of meeting this need with a new and effective solution.

ALPAGUT, which can operate day and night, will create an effective force against moving or stationary land and sea targets, radar and communication systems, lightly armored land or sea vehicles, critical facilities such as command centers, personnel, and targets of opportunity.

With an operational radius of 60 kilometers, an endurance of more than 60 minutes, and the capacity to carry different types of warheads, ALPAGUT can be used in single and swarm concepts.

ALPAGUT will be able to detect and identify the target undetected with its two-mode seeker. At the same time, it will not be affected by position jamming systems, and it will be able to point-shoot at the target with its precise guidance-control drive system. In addition to all these features, the system will also offer significant advantages to the user with its at-unit feature.
