The Medium Range Anti-Ship Missile (MRASM) air-breathing engine TEI-TJ300, produced through the cooperation of TAI, leading defense contractor Roketsan and the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÜBITAK), was tested in TAI’s compound in Turkey’s central province of Eskişehir.
Varank, giving a speech at the testing ceremony, referred to the development of the engine by Turkish engineers as an important step in terms of what the country has achieved so far in the defense industry.
The turbojet engine TJ300 was originally designed to be used in medium-range ship repellent missiles, while with different configurations, it can also be used with several other platforms. The TJ300 is an engine that can produce a force of 1,300 newtons and nearly 400 horsepower, despite its compact diameter. The missile engine is capable of operating at speeds of up to 90% of the speed of sound and at an altitude of up to 5,000 feet. The system was developed to achieve sufficient impulse in seconds. It is able to function in underwing wind without the need for a self-starter system. The TJ300 missile engine was designed to be compatible with air, naval and land defense systems.
