The Cirit series missiles carry a special warhead and were designed to fill the operational gap between low cost, low precision and non-guided missiles and high cost, guided anti-tank missiles.

Cirit missiles have the longest range in its class, and they are among the main arms carried by T-129 ATAK and AH-1W Super Cobra helicopters produced by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI).
