TÜBİTAK SAGE Delivers 100+ More HGK-84s to the Turkish Armed Forces (TAF)

Date: Issue 94 - September 2019

Within the scope of the Ammunition Supply Project Contract of the Presidency of Defence Industries (SSB), 100+ units of the HGK-84 Precision Guidance Kit, developed in line with the needs of the Turkish Armed Forces, were delivered to the Air Forces Command. On the SSB’s official twitter account, it was stated that the delivery of 100+ more HGK-84 was made to the TAF.

Developed by TÜBİTAK SAGE, HGK-84 transforms 2000 lb. Mk-84 general purpose bombs in the inventory of Air Forces into smart bombs. Reaching a range of 25 km at a 40000 ft. altitude, the HGK transforms 2000 lb. Mk-84 general purpose bombs into smart bombs, so that the existing bombs gain high precision impact capabilities under all weather conditions at 6.3 m deviation, even when dropped from a distance. This allows the aircraft to complete its mission safely without approaching the danger zone.
