The Greek do that. They sometimes refer to our missiles in general as "Yıldırım" adding Roman numerals to the name in order to clarify the range and precise missile.

Then again, how many missiles are we going to develop anyways? Longer range = new name.
Yildirim - III

I don't like that we call each missile with a different name. It would make more sense if we took Yıldırım as a family name and call them as Yıldırım II, Yıldırım III etc. based on the range.

We have so many products now and it's getting confusing.
Same family name with no. can also be totally confusing when done not right:

Korean Hyunmoo 2 and 4 are ballistic missiles, Hyunmoo 3 variants are all cruise missiles. Hyunmoo 4-4 is the designatin for the SLBM. And Hyunmoo 1 was a missile based on old US Nike Hercules (surface-to-air) with a totally different technology than 2 which is based on Russian Iskander.

I think your compatriots know much more about Gezgin than me. What I read was comparable with Tomahawk and Kalibr.
500 kg warhead, different versions planned with ranges from 800-1,000/1,500/2,500 km or longer.

TÜBİTAK SAGE Director Gürcan OKUMUŞ:

"Very important phases have been overcome. When the GEZGİN project is completed, a missile system like GÖKHAN, which has groundbreaking technologies and no equal, will emerge."

"We have already reached the supersonic regime with our air-to-air missiles. Gökhan's project is going very well and we are ahead of schedule."

"Our next vision includes hypersonic systems, and the development of engine systems such as scramjet for these systems."


Anyone have source for these quotes?
