As reported by Janes; Indonesia and Turkey will develop a new UCAV ammunition. TÜBİTAK SAGE and Indonesian Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) are involved in the work of development of the ammunition. Seeker heads and warheads of the ammunition to be developed will be able to be changed in a short time.
Indonesia introduced the domestic MALE class Elang Hitam UAV in 2019. According to the data published by the BPPT, Elang Hitam has a maximum take-off weight of 1.3 tons, a payload of 300 kg and a Rotax 915 turbocharged piston engine with 134 hp. It is possible to use the ammunition to be developed in Elang Hitam.
Considering the main features of the ammunition to be jointly developed by TÜBİTAK SAGE and BPPT, it is remarkable that it has similar features with the KUZGUN MMM (Modular Joint Munition) family in terms of modularity. The experience gained from the KUZGUN family, which allows the replacement of seeker and warheads, can form the basis for the study in question.
