Turkish cruise missile SOM-J is preparing for the final acceptance test which is expected this year to be able to enter mass production. The Final Acceptance Shot is set to be fired by a Turkish F-16 later this year with the missile expected to have a range of about 300km. Turkey relies heavily on this type of missile to use in the Turkish UAV Akinci as an aerial missile carrier.

The SOM-J missile was developed to be compatible with the F-35 Lightning II, the SOM-J missile is designed to be used by armed unmanned aircraft such as the AKINCI in addition to the already available fighters of the Turkish Airforce such as the F-4E TERMINATOR & F-16.

The company that manufactures it states that after the final tests the rocket will go into mass production.
