Good news is on the way in the AKYA project, which was started in 2009 for the heavy torpedo needs of the Turkish Naval Forces. In addition, it is aimed to transfer the outputs obtained from the AKYA project to the ORKA light torpedo project. In addition, in the press releases shared by Roketsan for the IDEF 2021 fair, technical details about these two ammunition were announced.

Since the torpedo systems are developed with a great deal of secrecy and their data is kept confidential, the data shared is usually moderate data. The range of AKYA, which was first announced by Roketsan as 15+ km and later stated to have a range of 30 km at an event, was stated as 50+ kilometers in the latest statements. In addition, important information such as AKYA's battery structure was also announced.

AKYA at IDEF for the First Time

The works carried out by Roketsan for AKYA continue successfully in line with the planned schedule. AKYA, which is aimed to be introduced to the Turkish Naval Forces in 2021, is presented to national and international visitors for the first time at IDEF 2021.

With the AKYA Project, Roketsan's critical capabilities, acquired through long years of precision work in developing precision-guided, high-speed intelligent rocket and missile systems, go under the sea. With AKYA, which is launched from submarines against various surface targets and submarines and developed entirely with national capabilities, an important need of the Turkish Naval Forces for underwater platforms will be met with national resources.

While AKYA's qualification studies are continuing, Low-Scale Initial Production activities are continuing to meet the priority needs of the Turkish Naval Forces.

Technical Specifications of AKYA

  • Range: 50+ kilometers
  • Speed: 45+
  • Targets: Submarines, Surface Ships
  • Guidance: Active/Passive Sonar Head with Acoustic Countermeasure Capability
  • Helm: Water Steering
  • Guidance: Mode Internal Guidance External Guidance with Fiber Optic Cable
  • Fuze: Proximity Sensor/ Detonation on Impact
  • Warhead: Underwater Shock Insensitive Warhead
  • Hive: Abandon Abandoned by Swimming
  • Drive System: Brushless DC Electric Motor + Reversing Propeller
  • Battery: High Energy Chemical Battery

Experiences in AKYA are Transferred to ORKA

ORKA, on the other hand, will provide the Turkish Navy with the ability to shoot down submarines from surface and air platforms. With the entry of ORKA, which will be exhibited for the first time in IDEF 2021, into the inventory, Turkey's Blue Homeland struggle will have another power that provides superiority on the field.

Roketsan transfers its experiences from the national heavy class torpedo AKYA to ORKA, the new generation light class torpedo. ORKA will be used against submarines, which can be launched from surface platforms and aircraft, which are currently in the inventory of the Turkish Naval Forces and may be included in the inventory in the future. ORKA, which will have precision guidance, navigation, advanced search and attack capabilities, will provide high efficiency on the target with its resistance to deception and confusion.

Technical Specifications of ORKA

  • Range: 25+ kilometers
  • Speed: 45+ Knots
  • Targets: Submarines
  • Launching Platforms: Surface Platforms, Helicopters, Maritime Patrol Aircraft, Armed Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
  • Guidance: Active/Passive Sonar Head with Acoustic Countermeasure Capability
  • Guidance Mode: Internal Guidance
  • Fuze: Explode on Impact
  • Warhead: Insensitive Warhead with Hollow Spelling Effect
  • Hive Abandon: Push Terk
  • Drive System: Brushless DC Electric Motor + Pumpjet Propeller
  • Battery: High Energy Lithium Battery
