TSAMTO, July 5. According to the Turkish Defense Ministry, the first 100 out of 1000 ordered precision guidance kits for HGK-82 bombs were handed over to the Turkish Air Force command on June 24.

According to Daily Sabah, the kits are manufactured by ASFAT (Askeri Fabrika ve Tersane Isletme / Military Factory and Shipyard Management Incorporated) in cooperation with the Research and Design Institute of the Defense Industry of the Turkish Scientific and Technical Research Council (Tubitak-SAGE). The delivery of the remaining sets of HGK-82 is planned to be completed by August 2022.

Previously, Aselsan was engaged in the production of HGK-82 in cooperation with Tubitak-SAGE.

During the ceremony, Tubitak-SAGE CEO Gurkan Okumush said that the GNSS Kasif satellite navigation system receiver developed by his institute meets the requirements of the Turkish Armed Forces and is integrated into the HGK-82. According to him, it is currently difficult to purchase such receivers abroad. The purchase of national kits should reduce Turkey's dependence on foreign countries.

As reported by TSAMTO, the HGK-82 kit "turns" free-falling 500-pound Mk-82 bombs into high-precision air-to-ground ammunition. Guided aerial bombs can be used by F-16 and F-4E aircraft of the Turkish Air Force at any time of the day. The ammunition is used in a set with BRU-57 bomb holders.
