Which makes me wonder, how long is the delay of an TV missile to an operator?

TV munitions are autonomous. Not a problem.

But wouldnt one of the advantages be live footage to an operator to correct trajectory or to assign a new mission?

E.g. the F-18 needs a Data Link Pod to do it. Without the pod you can only lock prior launch and then hope for the best.

Course correction is done autonomously by the onboard guidance system.

Assigning new mission would require two way data link. I am not sure if MAM-T has it.

If it is not operating in man in the loop mode, It either attacks preloaded coordinates or it has ATA( automatic target acquisition) and it will attack a preloaded target on its own. Those systems can recognize MBTs, air defense systems etc, and lock on them.

250% range increase on land from Roketsan!

— KMC-U Tactical Missile Launching Vehicle was developed based on the KMC, which is in the Turkish Armed Forces inventory and is widely used.

— While KMC will use missiles with a maximum range of 8 km, KMC-U will use UMTAS-GM with a range of 20 km.

KEMANKEŞ 2 is an indigenous and original mini intelligent cruise missile that Baykar developed for the purpose of striking strategically-important targets. The KEMANKEŞ missile family was named after the legendary archers in Turkish history, who were known for hitting the bull’s eye – even under the most challenging circumstances.

KEMANKEŞ 2 can eliminate strategically-important targets with surgical precision by flying autonomously thanks to its AI-supported autopilot system. Capable of remaining airborne for approximately one hour, it uses an indigenous jet engine to operate swiftly against high-risk targets behind the enemy line.

The KEMANKEŞ 2 mini intelligent cruise missile has an operational range of 200+ kilometers. It can recognize and eliminate its target, even despite inclement weather, thanks to its AI-supported optical cruise system.

KEMANKEŞ 2, which can operate day and night, is capable of performing despite electronic jammers with its embedded anti-jamming technology. It instantly delivers data and footage to the ground control station, helping users with data tracking."

Don't get me wrong, it is a good system. However, it seems Baykartech and standard military terminology has a very different concept of what qualifies as strategic targets.🙃

Dont get me wrong but I guess an UAV carrying a 70 kg mini intelligent cruise missile i.e KEMANKEŞ is already out of standard military terminology isnt it? and they are planing to land this UAV carrying a 70 kg mini intelligent cruise missile to TCG Anadolu... They are creating a new military terminology to follow not a standart one ;)


Further, in its simplest form strategically-important targets can be defined as set of targets to to gain the end of war .... which can be a loose adaptation of Carl von Clausewitz's words..... sure KEMANKEŞ can not be used against all of these set of targets yet it also doesnt mean that it can not be used against any of them
