Turkey lost another Bayraktar TB2 drone in Libya

Turkey has lost another drone. The defeat of the UAV Bayraktar TB2 was reported by the press service of the Libyan National Army.


According to the report, the Turkish UAV was shot down by fire from the Libyan National Army (LNA) Khalifa Haftar’s air defense units. At the same time, it is not reported by what means the UAV was hit, however, some sources claim that the UAV was hit by the Pantsir-C1 air defense system delivered to Haftar from the United Arab Emirates.

The Turkish apparatus itself crashed to the ground south of the city of Beni Walid. The evidence of the defeat of the Turkish UAV was the photos of the wreckage and weapons of the drone, which appeared on the LNA page on Twitter.

The total number of Bayraktar TB2 UAVs lost by Turkey in Libya is not precisely determined. According to some sources, the downed UAV is the 14th, according to others - almost the 30th, the downed UAV. The Turkish military knows the exact number, but they are not going to publish this information. Earlier it was reported about the deployment of 20 UAVs Bayraktar TB2 in Libya, but this number could have changed more than once.

Turkish drones are actively used to support units of the Government of National Accord Faiz Saraj, with whom Erdogan concluded an agreement on military cooperation.

    Anything heavier than air cannot fly for a long time smile
    If Leo Tolstoy were alive now, he could offer the operators of the drone and the Shell to converge in a virtual online battle on some kind of computer simulator smile

      Don’t do the figs there for the Turks ... Haftar took all the power upon himself, I hope to restore the state, as in Gadaffi!
      There, in Libya, there is already no one for free oil, etc.
      Such a country was and what they did to it, all sorts of Sarkozy and others

          When Gaddafi was overthrown, he was in exile. In addition, he Gaddafi at that moment owed nothing.

              First, a civil war broke out, to which he appeared in Libya as an enemy of Gaddafi, but without finding a common language he returned to the United States. As far as I remember, both the beginning and the end went without him. He was neither an organizer nor a performer. In fact, this is the third force, albeit with certain reservations.

                Michael .. Since 2011, he was in Libya, was one of the commanders of that scum who overthrew and killed Gaddafi. The fact that he was not there at the end, this does not relieve him of what happened in Libya .. A long man time he collaborated with the CIA, was engaged in anti-state activities. The former CIA-shnikov does not happen .. So he. cooperates with Russia, does not say anything .. In essence, the fight in Libya is a fight for the power of those who overthrew Gaddafi

                  Haftar, at least not a shifter. This already distinguishes him from the rabble, with which he then did not agree on anything, and now he is fighting against him. I wanted to say just that.

                You are absolutely right .. Gaddafi sponsored his campaign .. And then he started to bomb .. Here I am about the fact that the forces that are now fighting for power in Libya, puppets ... They do not care about Libya and the people ..
  2. In any case, an UAV is not a manned aircraft, after the downing of which there is a danger to the life of the pilot. I can not objectively assess the damage from UAVs, but if there is one, then the concept of use is justified so far ...

      Damage from a UAV is such - the price. Barmaleev drive - you can. But here is a barely flying machine in radio control, colliding with air defense and whether EW - a corpse. Which has been confirmed more than once by Iran and by the Hussites.

        Or if such an UAV stumbles upon an ATGM. Video from the link below.
        Total accuracy: Exclusive Cornet test shots against air targets published

        Previously unpublished videos show how accurately the anti-tank system can hit small air targets.

      a pair of rockets or planning bombs of 20-25 kg can do much harm

        Barmaleyam. Or to drive partisans with them. A miracle flies, moving its screws, it stands like your plane. We see - maybe a little worse than the plane, but not by much. Yes, they can knock him out of kalashas, ​​if they notice, then the whole problem is whether there is anyone to notice or not. There is - this is not knocked out by air defense, and the drone is to him - so-so enemy, Zushka will cope more often. Drive barmaley on a cart? Ten barmalei on 5 carts cost less than one rocket!
        Here’s an artifact correction with a UAV - I understand that. Middle and cheap, because he’s not a shock, he’s a simple UAV scout - I understand that very much. Percussion - not very flexible yet, Gave a bunch of US technology to Iran, when they landed the newest drone at their place? Recently added. when another newest Iran shot down so that he landed on a visit to them.

          This post can be considered in two ways: 1. You don’t have YouTube, so you don’t know anything about the UAV’s capabilities. 2. You have YouTube, you all know, but it’s envious to admit the obvious. averting eyes, so as not to notice what is on the second paragraph. Believe me, belittling another, not objectivity is noticed right away, people are not so stupid ..

            Do you have YouTube, although Google has enough about how not even drones were knocked down in Syria, but the latest American "ammunition barrage"?

            UAV "Switchblade"
            Option two - a series of attacks on the Khmeimim base, you know that not one was successful - either, but for some reason you convince me of its effectiveness against the air defense of these fly-guns. While the flywheels were effective only once - when the SAA lost its edge and was ready to attack the Bayraktars - it wasn’t - they burned something there, three seem to be attacks ONE DAY. Already about the next day - nothing is heard, apparently the SAA remembered - why air defense is needed. The second example of the successful use of UAVs as drums is Aramko. But there was air defense from the United States - that is, it was not there at all, there were commercials. And it's not a fact that there were UAVs - it was only the Saudis who said that there were drones

    UAVs are riveted by a firm owned by Erdogan’s son-in-law and matchmaker.

      "owned by Erdogan’s brother-in-law and matchmaker." They were engaged in this business, created a company for the production of UAVs before becoming a brother-in-law and matchmaker. They deserved to produce UAVs, regardless of whether he is brother-in-law or matchmaker .. To do this, just look at the life path of a 40-year-old Bayraktar. For the last 15-20 years in A lot of military-industrial complex companies rose in Turkey, became rich in innovation, innovation, development, production. And they are not a son-in-law or relative of Erdogan, some even stand in the ranks of the opposition. We are just used to measuring everyone with the arshin of the post-Soviet space.

    All the same, 14 lost UAVs will be closer to the truth + 6 or 7 in Syria.

    If the “bayraktars” will be knocked down at such a pace, then the “Motor Sich” can only survive due to Turkish orders.

      Motor Sich supplied 12 engines for the large Akinci. Bayraktar-tv2 they have nothing to do. Engines from Canada were supplied for the bayrktar. Recently, as part of the sanctions, they stopped deliveries. But the Turks themselves began to let in their PD-222 engines for Anki and PD- 170 for Bayraktar.
