Date: Issue 112 - February 2022

Antalya-based ARES Shipyard and Ankara-based Meteksan Defense successfully completed the firing tests by integrating a 12.7 mm remote-controlled weapon system into the ULAQ Unmanned Surface Vehicle.

ULAQ, which successfully destroyed the target by firing a missile for the first time in the world from an Unmanned Surface Vehicle in May 2021, will be the fearless guardian of sea borders, naval bases, ports and critical facilities with its new remote-controlled weapon system.
