SOM-J is an air-to-surface munition that has been developed for use against heavily defended land and naval targets, and that is mounted inside the aircraft/ below the wing.
The missile’s modular design supports the operational flexibility of the missile. Built based on the existing SOM technologies that are already in service with the Turkish Air Force, SOM-J today provides enhanced capabilities. The long-range SOM-J is a cost-effective solution due to its reduced observability, among its other capabilities.
