Turkish Navy Will Receive Temren Anti-Ship Missile
(Source: Bosphorus Naval News; posted Nov 2, 2016)
On 28 October 2016, the Turkish Defence Executive Commitee, has decided to arm SH-70B Seahawk helicopters of Turkish Navy with Temren short-range anti-ship missile.

Temren means arrowhead in Turkish. The missile was developed, from the L-UMTAS long range anti-tank missile, developed by Roketsan. The original L-UMTAS has a range of 8 km and weights 38 kg.

As is, the Temrem would replace the AGM-114K Hellfire II missiles used by Turkish Navy. But since Temren is an indigenous product, a longer ranged version of the missile with a larger warhead may be developed.

The live firing test were conducted in January 2015.
