I wonder what’s the difference between ATOM and ATOM ANTI UAV is. More pellets and less range?
While I can't answer this question, I can only give you my read on it based on the footage.

If we take that in the footage they used ATOM ANTI-UAV against these drones, I think we are seeing more, smaller and lighter pellets which make the "pellet cloud" denser, so it provides maximum chance of the projectiles hitting small targets as mini and micro drones, providing just enough punch to damage such targets critically and neutralize them.

Probably like AHEAD configurations.

  • PMD062 with a payload of 152 sub-projectiles
  • PMD330 with 497 sub-projectiles
  • PMD375 with 860 sub-projectiles
  • PMD428 with more than 600 sub-projectiles

oh.. looks pretty rad... 20-25 mm gatling gun with some short range missiles. :)

What I'd expect for infantry support, or mobile air defense for smaller bases.

but I think some more radar and sensor options are needed to create a decent layer for protection. and a couple of extra Unmanned weapons stations or it'll be an easy target.

I mean on independent vehicles, and not on same :)

I would also put some APS there. Hope Aselsan Kama will be ready soon

Lack of space on turret. I think main gun will do the job quite well already.

Air and Missile Defense against traditional cruise & ballistic missiles threats are still feasible with existing AMD systems. What created significant challenges for today's warfighters are GMLRS, glide bombs and UAS/loitering ammunitions that delivers the same precision with a fraction of the cost of traditional missiles. Hence, being able to easily overwhelm the existing AMD. We can see that in Ukraine's HIMARS rampage earlier in the conflict, or Russia's ongoing use of cheap glide bombs to a devestatng effect.

I can't wait for Korkut C-RAM to come out. Combining efficient C-UAS & C-RAM in a single platform would be a game changer. It will provide excellent protection of headquarters and HVTs in friendly operational depth.

Guys, I have seen a laser guided rocket with timefuse on YouTube but i forgot the name. Might be Thales naval counter drone system.

İmagine as if our CİRİT had timefuse💪🏻😎

Edit: found

That's Sungur?
Nope. CIRIT is laser guided 70mm hydra rocket whereas SUNGUR IIR guided.

On the other hand this missile has very heavy warhead that carries steel balls thus its range is short app 3km.

The launcher boasts high propulsion speed, a range of up to 3 km, and the ability to deploy over 8,000 projectiles, creating a steel cloud.

This weapon could be used against troops hidden in tranches.

No what I mean is Sungur also has fragment, I don't know how many, and it also has programmable fuse. This is straight from Roketsan, although it looks like it isn't proximity fuse.

"Warhead ▶ High Explosive, Semi Armor Piercing Warhead , Initiated By Programmable Impact Fuze ▶ [Insensitive Munition, Type 4, Fuel Fire & Bullet Attack]"

In fact, most if not all air defence missiles have fragmentation warheads.
