Lockheed Upgrades Turkish Navy FCS
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- A U.S. defense major has been awarded a project to
modernize a key fire control system for the Turkish Navy.
Lockheed Martin has won a contract to upgrade the MK-92 fire control
system on Turkey's G-class guided missile frigates. The system upgrade,
awarded by the U.S. Navy, was designed to support the deployment of the
Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile on the Turkish frigates.
"Building on our successes with systems already in use by Norway and
Australia, Lockheed Martin will deliver, with this latest variant, a major
improvement to the guided missile frigate anti-air warfare capability and
continue more than two decades of support to the operational needs of the
Turkish Navy," Lockheed Martin's director for Naval Radar Programs Stan Ozga
