Turkey has successfully tested its first long range missile, Bora, in Sinop, Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Işık said on Thursday, CNNTürk reported.
The 610-millimeter caliber, 280-kilometer range Bora was developed by Turkey’s Roketsan.
“A new Bora missile has been launched in Sinop. It is about to hit its target in the Black Sea as we speak. Turkey is now producing its own missiles,” Minister Işık said during an interview on the pro-government AHaber TV.
