Bayraktar TB2 - shock medium-range UAV, designed and manufactured by the Turkish company Baykar. Flight altitude - over 7300 m, time spent in the air - up to 24 hours. The distance from the control point is no more than 150 km, it can work in two modes (remote control or automatic mode, including independent takeoff and landing). The maximum speed of the drone is 250 km / h, cruising speed - 130 km / h.

Length drone is 6,5 m, the wingspan is 12 m. The maximum take-off weight of the drone is 650 kg, while the payload is 55 kg. The Bayraktar TB2 is capable of carrying two anti-tank bombs.

        Yes, and the political establishment of Israel is an order of magnitude higher in intelligence and pragmatism. Therefore, Israel is friends with Turkey and completely calm about Ukraine.

            Over at the Khmeimim base attacking drones infinitely shoot down and the end and edge are not visible to this ... maybe it’s better to cover the operators of these drones.

      55 kg is almost like a shell from a 152-mm howitzer, but at the same time a highly accurate capable of hitting a single tank or an AP from above 7 km in height.

      This is your little? Seriously?

      In addition, the ammunition of this UAV is simple and cheap, which means they can be made / bought a LOT.

      The danger of this UAV is that the Donbass army has practically nothing to get it and this is a serious problem.

      Russia generally has no UAVs, but Ukraine already has them and tomorrow they will use them in the Donbass.

          Starting next year, the Turks will have a much more powerful Akinci combat drone weighing 5 tons and a payload of 1350 kg. It will be equipped with missiles and bombs carried by the F-16. In addition, it will also have a winged rocket from the SOM family. SOM was originally prepared for the F-35.

      It is not huge, but of such a size that it can fly for a long time and pick up two high-precision bombs, each of which can hit a tank / infantry fighting vehicle / armored personnel carrier / truck with people.

      This UAV flies at an altitude of more than 7000 km, that is, the Donbass army cannot get them out of MANPADS, but these UAVs can hit two targets in one take-off.

        that is, the army of Donbass to get them out of MANPADS is impossible
        and who wrote about MANPADS?
        According to information from various sources, during the armed confrontation in the Donbass, Ukraine lost 10-12 helicopters and 13-20 of its combat and transport military aircraft. Now in the air defense of Novorossia there are such advanced systems as "Shell-C1", "Tor-M1".

            There is a video on the network from Bellingcat on which the BUK, due to an installation error, travels rockets forward (that is, back to front) for a rather long time - all this from a film that allegedly proved that the BUK traveled from the Russian Federation to Donbass. This video was referenced even by the European Commission, which investigated the circumstances of the destruction of the Boeing over the Donbass as evidence.

            But in the end, all this turned out to be a banal installation. The fake of this video was dismantled at a briefing by the Ministry of Defense, which shot down a Boeing about the origin of the rocket.

            Well, a little logic - if there would be TORs and Armor in the Donbass, then there was no reason for Ukraine to buy Bayraktar TB2 UAVs, since these complexes allow reaching targets up to jet aircraft, not to mention slow-moving UAVs at altitudes of 10-15 km !!!

            A UAV Bayraktar TB2 has a maximum flight altitude of just over 7 km.

          There are specific republics where these UAVs will soon be used and the air defense of these republics has problems.

          According to information from various sources, during the armed confrontation in the Donbass, Ukraine lost 10-12 helicopters and 13-20 of its combat and transport military aircraft. Now in the air defense of Novorossia there are such advanced systems as "Shell-C1", "Tor-M1".


          All that was shot down in the Donbass was shot down from MANPADS and Strela-10.

          The Donbass army did not have any Shells and Thors.

          All that is MANPADS and Strela-10 their maximum is 3,5 km.
