They are weapons designed to damage and contaminate a target by dispersing harmful radioisotopes. Contamination, on the other hand, can damage the genes of the living things in the target area in the long term, and even lead to death. Such weapons can be used by missiles, rockets and humans, and can also be activated in a variety of ways, including destroying a facility or ship containing radioactive material, remote control devices that detonate the material, and placing the material in facilities or water sources. Radiological weapons are divided into two as Radiological Dispersion Devices and Radiological Dispersal Weapons. Radiological dispersion devices are devices that emit radioactive materials. Dirty bombs, which act as both a dispersant and an explosive, disperse the existing radioactive material over a wide area and contaminate the target it has determined, can be given as an example of such devices. Radiologic dispersion weapons can be used to contaminate livestock, fisheries and food products. Although such weapons produce much less damage than devices that cause nuclear explosions, they have great intimidation potential. Radiological weapons have been one of the main concerns with nuclear terrorism. The use of such devices can have a serious psychological and political impact. Therefore, these devices can be used by some states or terrorist groups to create panic, disrupt military operations or create political pressure. Sources: Anthony H.

A rocket launcher attack serves to destroy or suppress the target by firing multiple shots using personnel (portable) or through systems. Rocket launchers operate with general propulsion. They operate with air-breathing engines based on their range. It has the characteristic of attacking tactically and psychologically. It carries out a field attack. Thanks to its ammunition properties and components, it can destroy/destroy armored vehicles and structures and render them unusable. Rocket launchers are used to attack armored targets, channel the enemy, suppress the enemy, provide fire support to friendly ground troops, and destroy mass targets.
The definition of a rotary wing made by the International Civil Aviation Organization is "an aircraft powered by one or more rotors for flight". Rotary Wing aircraft come to the fore with the ability to overcome gravity with the lifting force as a result of the rotation of the panels and achieve flight. Today, Rotary Wing Air Vehicles are used in many fields. Rotary Wing Aerial Vehicles are used in safety with the placement of various weapons on them. Although there has been a tendency towards Unmanned Aerial Vehicles with the developing technologies in recent years, Rotary Wing Aerial Vehicles are frequently used in defense and attack events.

Rotary Wing Air Vehicles; they work by generating buoyancy. With this force it produces, it takes off by overcoming its weight, providing upward thrust. Rotary wing aircraft compared to aircraft; effective and sharp maneuverability, does not need a large runway, can land in sensitive areas, can hang in the Air 360 degree effect in terms of the advantage provides. Rotary wing air vehicles carry out their attacks thanks to this ability and advantages. Due to its fast and high mobility, enemy ground troops, ground vehicles, tanks, ships, helicopters have ammunition (UMTAS, Sidewinder, Stinger, TY-90, Hellfire, Mokapa, etc.) can destroy it thanks to it. Rotary Wing Air Vehicles are used to destroy enemy attack elements or reinforcements at tactical depth. It is also possible to use elements of electronic warfare.
