State-owned Turkish missile producer Roketsan has signed a deal with Polish company WZL1 to debut in Poland.
Roketsan said the deal with WZL1 aims to have two of its products, the Cirit and the UMTAS, integrated into Polish armed forces platforms.
"Roketsan and WZL1 have agreed to cooperate in order to offer solutions [to the Polish military] based on Roketsan's Cirit and UMTAS systems," the company said.
Cirit is one of several programmes launched by Turkey to equip the Turkish Army's T-129, AH-1P Cobra and AH-1W Super Cobra attack helicopters with low-cost precision strike capabilities.
Airbus Helicopters, formerly Eurocopter, selected the Cirit for a test and integration program to equip the company's EC635.
The Mizrak-U, with its infrared imaging and laser-seeker options, is an anti-tank missile with a range of eight kilometers that can be used in air-to-ground and ground-to-ground operations. (jh)
