Hisar missiles are defense weapons developed to protect military bases, ports, facilities, and troops against air-based threats. They meet the needs of the Turkish Armed Forces by providing them a low- and medium-altitude air defense security system.

The components of the Hisar A+ missile, like radar, command and control, and fire control were developed by Aselsan. The Roketsan was responsible for the development of the missile system. Both of them are Turkish defense equipment manufacturers.

The missile system is effective against invading aircraft, helicopters, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and air-to-ground missiles.
