Turkey has successfully test-fired its first homemade ballistic missile near the Black Sea coastal region of Sinop, the Turkish defense minister says.
Axar.az reports citing to PressTV “Our missile Bora (storm), with a range of 280km, was just test-fired in Sinop. It will strike its target in the Black Sea any minute now," Fikri Isik told broadcaster A Haber on Thursday.
The test was later described as successful.
"Turkey now makes its own missile. We have gained the self-confidence to make better ones,” added the minister.
Bora has a payload of 450kg and it has been developed by Turkey’s major weapons manufacturer Roketsan.
