Turkey’s long-range air and missile defense systems could act as a deterrent force in the region, he added.

Hisar’s radar, command control, fire control and missile systems are developed by local Roketsan and Aselsan, the leading Turkish defense firms.

The medium-altitude air defense missiles’ targets are military aircraft, helicopters, navigation missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles, with a maximum range of 25km, according to Roketsan’s statement.
