ANKARA, May 4 (Xinhua) -- Turkey has successfully tested its indigenously produced HISAR A+ air defense system in the central Aksaray province, the Turkish defense ministry said on Tuesday.
A missile fired from the HISAR A+ destroyed a high-speed target drone, the ministry said on Twitter.
HISAR missiles are operationally used for the protection of military bases, ports, facilities and troops against rotary and fixed-wing aircraft, cruise missiles, air-to-ground missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
In a written statement, Turkey's presidency of defense industries said that the autonomous HISAR A+ will perform the air defense task of armored mechanized moving units.
"The system can move in all kinds of terrain, has fast position change, short reaction time, 360-degree protection capability and can prevent targets without the need for any other element," said the statement.
