Remote-Controlled Weapon Systems TRAKON TARGAN
TRAKON TARGAN is specifically designed and developed for naval vessels as a close-in defense weapon system against air and surface targets. TRAKON TARGAN is mounted with 12.7x99mm HMG or 40mm automatic grenade launcher (MK-19).
TRAKON TARGAN has excellent surveillance, reconnaissance and target tracking capabilities without aiming the gun axis at the tracked object, via a high-tech electrooptical suit integrated on an independently stabilized gimbal.
The Turkish Ministry of Defense has selected TRAKON TARGAN as the close-in weapon system for the HISAR class Off-Shore Patrol Vessel (OPV) project being built for the Turkish Naval Forces.
TRAKON TARGAN is fully compatible with HAVELSAN’s new generation combat management system called “ADVENT”. It can be controlled directly via its own control console or via the combat management system (ADVENT).
