Coastal Fifth-Generation Cruise Missile
|ALAS C is a long-range multipurpose surface-to-surface missile system, stemming from the joint project between Yugoimport SDPR and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and it is designed for coastal defence in modern naval missions. Containing a HEAT and fragmentation warhead, it is integrated with the NIMR 6x6 tactical vehicle, and its tactical use is destroying targets such as boats and small ships. Moreover, it is cost-effective and highly efficient against ships, missile patrol boats and other sea and river vessels. Given that it can be used in individual and group actions – both naval and anti-landing – such as assault preparations, opening of passages, maintaining the pace of attacks, and neutralising the enemy coastal artillery by attacking from the sea, ALAS C is an optimal solution for the new era of naval superiority.||
Like its counterpart ALAS XX, the ALAS C missile is also designed to be used in reconnaissance and guidance. It has an IR imaging homing head and optical cable, which enables target area observation, as well as target acquisition process during the flight if the operator decides so.
Apart from that, this powerful missile boasts 25 km effective operating range, with the possibility of reaching 50 km. Furthermore, ALAS C contains two main types of advanced homing heads – that is, the electro-optical uncooled IR imaging and the advanced TV homing head.
