The reason for the termination of the supply of British components for the UAV Bayraktar-TB2 to Turkey

40

It became known about the termination of supplies from Britain of components for the production of drones to Turkey. We are talking about Andair Ltd, which supplied components to the Turkish manufacturer Baykar Makina, which produces Bayraktar-TB2 strike reconnaissance drones.


According to the Western press, the export was stopped due to the fact that Turkey was selling drones with British components to Azerbaijan for their subsequent use in the war in Nagorno-Karabakh.

Armenian news sources write that the British company applied to the Armenian Embassy in London with a request to clarify whether the Bayraktar, shot down during the conflict in Karabakh, had parts with British markings. The Armenian side confirmed the information on the presence of Andair Ltd. fuel pumps on the UAV.

It should be noted that information about the presence of British components on the Bayraktars shot down in Karabakh leaked to the press back in November. At the same time, the British company was criticized for cooperation with Turkey, which "is ready to use selling UAVs to third countries for military operations not sanctioned by the UN Security Council." It is this wording that is now being used as the reason for the termination of supplies for the Turkish drone manufacturer.

In this regard, it can be assumed that the British company was initially well aware of the availability of its components on the Turkish-made drones used by Azerbaijan. And only public attention to this issue after several such UAVs were shot down in Nagorno-Karabakh and their "insides" were examined, forced Andair Ltd to stop cooperation with Turkish Baykar Makina.

        Yes, a small bite of Armenia.
        But I think Turkey can start producing its pumps very quickly.

              Uh-huh. and it looks like this is just the beginning. In Bayraktar, except for the identification marks on the fuselage - there is nothing Turkish. Pumps, motors, guidance systems, controls ... Nu-nu

      “The UK has supported Turkey in its quest to develop fifth generation TF-X fighters amid tensions with Greece. The British aerospace company BAE Systems is participating in the project. According to reports, Britain, after leaving the European Union, is trying to assert its role in world affairs. He now supports Ankara's efforts to create the TF-X fighter, which is likely to pose a threat to its Mediterranean neighbor Greece. The situation in the eastern Mediterranean remains tense as Turkey and Greece are involved in a dispute over energy exploration rights and maritime boundaries in the area. In addition, the two countries constantly quarreled over military exercises in the region despite the fact that they are part of the NATO alliance, ”the Eurasian Times reported.

      Remarkable is the fact that recently relations between the UK and Turkey have seriously cooled, in connection with which there have been suggestions that one of the reasons for helping Turkey to create its own TF-X fighter is to try to prevent the acquisition of Russian combat aircraft.

              And who said that the shaves are against? It's just that everyone is pursuing their own interests. They will formally ban deliveries, but in fact they will sell them through Ukraine. The Turks seemed to like to establish screwdriver production in Ukraine in general.

    Why did the Brits suddenly worry that the UAVs with their components took part in "operations not agreed in the UN "? Still, the reason probably lies elsewhere - the United States" recommended "to stop deliveries because of the conflict with Turkey on the S-400.

    There is no need to link even with the United States.

    Who even writes such nonsense?
    Why on earth?
    Only a person who has not seen and does not understand in export-import contracts can write such nonsense.
    Bayraktar TB2 powerplant: Rotax 912 is a family of four-cylinder horizontally opposed piston internal combustion engines.
    Rotax engines are designed to be installed on light aircraft, motorcycles, ATVs, go-karts, snowmobiles, jet skis and boats.

    The contract might not be direct - for example, an intermediary purchased for civil aviation (the engine is widely used), and then resale the pumps to the UAV manufacturer.
    If someone does not want to sell something - it can be bought through a chain of intermediaries - only the price will increase for the risks of intermediaries.
    And then there are dual-use products.

    Why would a pump manufacturer track the distribution of their products in advance if they are overwhelmingly used in the civilian sector and the Turks have adapted them for military purposes?

    There was one confirmation of the fact that components for one's own equipment, and especially for military ones, must be produced in one's own country. You never know who from the suppliers will come up with bad thoughts or, under the influence of others, they will stop deliveries. negative bully

    This makes no sense.
    All component manufacturers should be asked how to use the final product and who to sell it to.

    A clear illustration of the fact that the Armenian community in the world has a certain influence.
    Of course, no one went to the front in Karabakh, but they took part where and how they could.
    Pegov, for example, suddenly spoke with an almost Armenian accent :)

    I read somewhere that the head of British intelligence is Erdogan's sidekick, and even when they worried that their equipment was bombing someone. Then I suppose they found out that Aliyev gave his friend VVP one for the New Year, so they forgot.
