In Turkey: Ukrainian Forces Seriously Strengthened With Acquisition Of Bayraktar TB2 UAV


On Turkish television channel TRT Haber, material was released that describes the growth in requests for the purchase of Bayraktar unmanned aerial vehicles after their massive use of the Turkish Air Force in the sky of the Syrian province of Idlib. The material also says that the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine "highly appreciated" the Bayraktar TB2 operational tactical drones previously acquired from Ankara.


At the moment, Ukraine is one of two foreign (for Turkey) owners of the mentioned drones.

Amid growing demand, Turkey decided to increase the production of Bayraktar TB2 UAVs. According to some reports, at the beginning of 2020, about 120 units of such drones were produced. For obvious reasons, most are for the needs of the Turkish army.

It is noted that Ukraine at one time acquired six Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones and conducted flight tests of each of them after they arrived from Turkey.

Turkish TV notes that the Ukrainian army is ready to use Bayraktar TB2 UAVs, "which have confirmed their high performance."

At TRT Haber, with reference to Baykar Makina, an UAV development and manufacturing company, states the following:

The events in Syria, the successful strikes on Assad’s forces demonstrated that Turkish drones are very effective. And the Ukrainian troops seriously strengthened, making the right choice.

          Syria is not indicative. Turkey’s open aggression was unexpected for her. Again, when the shock passed, the Turkish drones began to shoot down.

          In the Dmitriyevka area (Shakhtersky district), in 2014, one Su-25 produced 7 MANPADS launches, from different angles.
          Here, if you want, if you don’t want, you will land laughing

          And one more fact. The village of Dmitriyevka is the place of death in an aerial battle of a brave woman, a fighter pilot, ace - Lydia Litvyak, "White Lily of Stalingrad." There she is buried.

          Memorial Saur Tomb, before the war.

            Yes, it’s expensive, and if LDNR has air defense equipment, it’s also ruinous.
            Dill took about $ 156 million for this contract. This includes 6 drones, 200 missiles, two control stations, operator training and service charges. If "successfully" they go to LDNR, then in a day or two the possibilities of the contract will be exhausted and another 156 million dollars should be asked from the mattresses.

              The Turks boast that they were able to solve the problem of the low payload capacity of this UAV, equipping it with not full-fledged missiles, but with “planning ammunition” based on these missiles.
              That is, actually "sawing off" the rocket engine, lightened the ammunition ...

        You got alarmed late. UAVs were handed over to ex-Ukraine during the period of "pardon with Erdogan."
        The leadership of the Russian Federation was well aware of this.
        A new surge of informational noise around these UAVs was raised against the backdrop of "successes" in their use in Syria, and against the background of the very, very gloomy prospects of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the DPR and LPR.

    It was not the Turks who successfully attacked, it was the Syrians who controlled the airspace poorly over the battlefield, allowing the Turks to burn military equipment with impunity, using drones. Good air defense would have closed the sky for them to strike tightly.

    These drones will not bring the Ukrainian army any closer to success. A purely political decision to sell them to Ukraine and from Ukraine to buy them. Is it from them? If Ukraine insists that it is fighting with Russia, what, will these 6 drones help? Yes, even if there were 600 of them, they would not have helped. Such articles are purely for public opinion in Turkey and Ukraine, they say, we have cool weapons, look, it’s even for sale

There are no such facts. No matter how primitive they are, but they are applied, and successfully. There always comes a moment when quantity goes into quality.

    You need to think with your head, and not get excited about the YouTube video. Israeli drones over Palestine, American and Russian over barmels, Turkish over Syria (which lost air defense in the civil war). And what does this prove? Only that the party that does not have air defense systems will lose (this was understandable and so).
    I don’t think this focus will be in Ukraine hi

      The Turks successfully used their UAVs over the territory of Syria, whose operators were located in Turkey. That is, they applied in their border zone
      availability. Despite this, they lost more than a dozen UAVs, but they connected the media and grabbed a hype for their “super UAV maid in Turkish”.
      Our media picked up this “Turk-hype”, having no idea about the vulnerability of UAVs.
      flying at a speed of 200-300 km, and an altitude of 3-5-7 km. This is a funny goal for
      modern air defense systems. But its manufacturers, hang up "noodles",
      all over the world.

    It is ridiculous to read these cheers-patriotic comments. Tell us about Russian drone drones, massively used somewhere.

    Twenty five again? This issue has already been discussed and commented a million times on the forum.
    Okay, for those banned in the search (or intentionally escalating) again, very briefly:

    Why should Russia use them? The current generation of UAVs is an economic failure in any of its variants. The heavy long-range drones used by the United States require a huge satellite constellation for its operation, respectively its updating, the MCC, command centers, and the gigantic staff arising from this. They can afford it can still, only USA. All other countries using their UAVs also use their satellites, which is military is complete stupidity.

    Lighter UAVs are essentially a cargo cult. They perform all tasks worse and more expensive at times than manned aircraft.

    Russia has relied on the development of the next generation immediately - unmanned aerial vehicles with artificial intelligence that do not require direct operator control during a combat mission. These include the Hunter platform.

    Those samples of the previous generation that are appearing now are designed to close temporary gaps, to make the transition to a new generation of UAVs more gradual. They will not be mass produced. Because it is economic stupidity.


    No matter how primitive they are, but they are applied, and successfully.

    Turkey’s use of UAVs in Syria is not successful, but catastrophic in fact. Therefore quickly ended. With the advent of modern air defense systems at the disposal of Syria, she announced the closure of the sky, and all this PR campaign and nonsense with the "successful Turkish UAVs" quickly curtailed.

    We all disagree. As many as six !!! drones. Now it’s not only LDNR that’s captured, it’s time for Moscow to surrender to such a formidable force))

    To not say, but so far in drones, Russia as catching up. It is not clear why - we are making such sophisticated fighter jets, but cannot master drones. There is actually a glider, in which we generally lead and filling. Yes, even if they do, it’s still catching up. It’s time to keep up with the times, we need a new concept of use, we need to introduce new types of weapons faster, change tactics on the battlefield, methods of use, which others do not have - let them catch up. Now they are talking about the use of a swarm of drones, but not by the type of kamikaze, but by gaining air supremacy through the use of different types of drones with the support of aviation and air defense.

      Why are they? Against a serious army with air defense, they are useless. And you can chase after barmaley from helicopters. The most important thing is still the ground forces, artillery, which surround and squeeze.

    I read the comments, and did not find a single one about the main thing, and the main thing is that the country that independently produced planes, profiled the entire industry, industry, and cannot produce a drone today, although in the mid-80s radio controlled models were made on the SUT. (Dnepropetrovsk region.) Today, Ukraine is driven irrevocably into an agricultural country. Alas.
