Eurocopter’s Public Relations Specialist Thomas Hein said on 2.75” Laser Guided Cirit Missile System that is being manufactured by Roketsan and intended to be integrated into the Eurocopter EC635 helicopter “Cirit added versatility to EC635. We would like to use Cirit in various other platforms of Eurocopter”.

Following the signature of the protocol between Roketsan and Eurocopter at IDEF 2011 for cooperation of the integration of 2.75” laser guided Cirit missile into Eurocopter’s EC635 helicopter platform, Eurocopter’s Public Relations Specialist Thomas Hein made significant remarks on project’s state of affairs at IDEF 2013.  Mentioning the fact that they have been in close affiliation with Turkey for 20 years, Hein said that their Project is still underway despite the delays stemming from the financial issues that the South African supplier in charge of the integration of weapons into the Eurocopter’s EC635 helicopter has been going through.
