Well spotted! After I wrote this list. I went back to the video and thought it looked a bit bare on the mast!
Unless they are going to add an Aesa based radar or use a separate radar carrier, these weapons really won’t mean much.
There is a radar, and a simple ESM + EOTS.

Naval architectures don't really know how to gift-wrap their products and make those look pretty and catch the attention. We suck,i know it.

I envy seeing how TAI, Roketsan and Aselsan presents their product, and then you visit a shipyard their stand is kind of "null".

Those ships won't be sailing around on their own. They will be connected to other systems (such as drones and AWACS on the skies, USV's on the seas and many others) and get information with their data link capabilities and other combat management systems developed by ASELSAN, Meteksan, HAVELSAN etc. Excuse me for not recalling their names.

Systems used for network-centric warfare would not be a good replacement for stand-alone systems. At the very least, they should add MAR-D to those ships.

ASELSAN Introduced IIR Guided Miniature Bomb

17 August 2021

ASELSAN has adapted to the concept of using smaller-scale but more technological ammunition, which has emerged recently, with the Miniature Bomb. According to the information given by the company officials specifically to SavunmaSanayiST.com; Miniature Bombs, which are planned to be dropped from F-16s and SİHAs in the first place, are expected to be integrated into the National Combat Aircraft in the future.


The newly developed Miniature Bomb titled IIR is also being introduced at the fair for the first time. In its new generation form, Miniature Bombs will be effective against moving targets as well as stationary targets. Again, with the Intelligent Multi-Carriage Saloon, developed and produced locally by ASELSAN, the Miniature Bombs will be equipped with man-in-the-loop capability. Thanks to this feature, pilots will be able to manually direct the dropped bombs in the air moment by moment.

Again, thanks to the Intelligent Multi-Transport Saloon, it will be possible to transport a large number of ammunition at the same time. The number of Miniature Bombs to be dropped from warplanes as well as S/UAVs will increase up to 8 in a single sortie. In this way, it will be possible to attack 8 different targets at the same time from only a single aircraft. The Miniature Bomb, which will have a range of approximately 100 km under suitable conditions, is the equivalent of the MK-81 bombs with a weight of approximately 250 lbs.

Today, in line with the changing war concepts, while the prevalence of use of larger-sized classical ammunition is decreasing day by day, the interest in ammunition with higher point strike capability is increasing.
