In 2007 the company «Roketsan» and the Secretariat of the military industry have signed a contract for the implementation of the modification of “OMTAS” for the support of the armed forces of the modern anti-tank. Phase number 1 — design, preliminary design and construction of prototypes completed in 2009. Phase number 2 — the flight (with / without GOS) and the qualification tests will be completed in 2013. Have been conducted to date flight tests without the GOS in 2012 will be flight tests with the GOS. Full tests will take place in ’13. Phase number 3 expected to begin in 2014, which would mean the mass production and adoption of the complex. Source survincity.com
OMTAS, developed by Roketsan for infantry units, is a surface to surface anti-tank missile system. With the advanced technology it has, it is effective against all armored threats in the field.
OMTAS, with its 4 km maximum range and 200 m minimum range, can function in all weather conditions, day and night. OMTAS, which can be used in fire-forget and fire-update modes, with the elasticity provided by its target update capability, offers possibilities to fire in covered position, to fire at targets behind cover, to point precisely and to evaluate the effectiveness of the hit, can be used against fixed and moving targets.
OMTAS is an surface to surface anti-tank missile with infrared sensor head which has a range of 4 km used against armored targets, having locking in before/after firing and fire-forget/ fire -update.
