Ukrainian Armed Forces begin exercises with the participation of Bayraktar TB2 attack drones

58

The Armed Forces of Ukraine are conducting regular exercises using Bayraktar TB2 attack drones. According to Ukrainian media, the drones operate in conjunction with ground troops.


Drone drills are taking place at a combined-arms training ground in the Rivne region. They are attended by units of the 30th separate mechanized brigade named after Prince Konstantin Ostrog and at least one Bayraktar TB2. It is reported that defensive and offensive actions are being practiced, and the drone appears to be providing air support to the Ukrainian military.

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine emphasizes that this is not the first exercise with the use of shock drones. At the end of March this year, the Ukrainian Naval Forces (Ukrainian Naval Forces) conducted an exercise using Bayraktar TB2, during which UAV operators practiced maneuvering over the sea. The drones flew from the coast to the Tendrovskaya Spit island, which is located in the Black Sea. How many drones participated in the exercises, the military department of Ukraine did not report.

It is also stated that one Bayraktar TB2 was in the area of ​​the Donetsk region, but did not fly up to the contact line. He circled around Pavlograd, after which he went back to the area of ​​New Kakhovka.

Bayraktar TB2 delivery to Ukraine ended in 2019. In total, the Armed Forces received six drones, two (according to other sources - three) ground control stations and related equipment, including simulators. Also earlier, the Ukrainian side reported on the supply of ammunition (200 missiles) for drones in accordance with the agreement. In addition, the Naval Forces of Ukraine should receive Bayraktar TB2 drones with an increased flight range.

The Turkish Bayraktar TB2 UAV is an aircraft-type UAV. Wingspan - 12 m, length - 6,5 m. Maximum take-off weight - 650 kg, can carry two high-precision munitions MAM-L weighing 21,5 kg and two MAM-C weighing 7 kg, allowing to hit targets at ranges from 2 to 8 km. UAV flight duration - up to 24 hours, range in line of sight - up to 150 km.

    They are studying the experience of Azerbaijanis in order to start cleaning up Donbass later. They will also take a license for a drone in order to make more of them themselves, and arrange a "blitzkrieg" for the republics. ..

        Your sarcasm is misplaced. Sitting on a warm sofa, of course, is not scary, but with this in the photo, which died in exactly a second, they would not share your point of view. As Armenians, you underestimate your enemies. This is the main mistake of sofa experts.

          During the conflict in Karabakh, mostly computer graphics were shown, not real footage. So, Karabakh is a great advertising campaign for Turks and Jews. We will learn about the real efficiency much later.

            I don't exclude it. Any normal manufacturer of weapons, if there is a conflict with the use of his weapons, this is an advertisement for his products and also a signal to those who want to conflict with them ... a dual purpose.

              Where are the figures for the losses of Armenians, for equipment and l / s from? Where does the data on the effectiveness of the applied power supplies come from? So far, this is all advertising. That's when we find out how much was actually destroyed and how much power supply was needed for this, then we will talk about efficiency. A little information for thought - "complete victory, a bunch of trophies, the Armenians fled)))) Baku buys weapons and equipment from Turkey for more than 700 Lyams. Why? There is nothing to spend money on? Spend on the restoration of the NKAO))))

      "blitzkrieg" to the republics.

      I'm more interested in another question. Turkish Bayraktar car is good, but not perfect. The United States and Israel have drones that are better than the Turkish car. For example, MQ-1C Gray Eagle, MQ-9B SkyGuardian, Heron TP, Predator C Avenger and so on. Why doesn't Ukraine, having good relations with them, buy these cars from them? It seems that Ukraine and the United States love carrots ........ These machines are head and shoulders above the Turkish Bayraktars.

        UAVs of this class practically do not sell to the USA. Only to the closest allies like Britain. Israel also sells with an eye on the opinion of the United States. Most importantly, they cost horse money, both planes and control centers. Do not forget about the price of weapons, MAM bombs are several times cheaper than the same helfires.

            kharop is a bla kamikaze, but why are kherons fundamentally better than their Turkish counterparts (anka \ bairaktar)?
            there are no questions about the ripper, it really is two heads superior to the Turkish UAVs, but I can't say that about the Israeli ones. Turkish, all other things being equal, will also be cheaper.

              So I wondered .... why the Ukrainian side does not buy from the United States and Israel. Moreover, they have very warm relations with Israel.

              Most likely, it's about money.

              I can say that. A fundamentally different class of UAVs, qualitatively superior to the Turkish ones. This is about Israel and the United States. True, there is simply no one near the United States in jet UAVs.
              The main thing in the UAV is the payload, electronic warfare (RER) equipment, RTR, OLS, radar, etc. Computing capabilities. There are no secrets in the glider and engine itself.

        Everything is very simple. The Americans started the Maidan in 2014 to seize Crimea for their bases and NATO. With the Crimea did not grow together and Ukraine, together with the Bandera, became unnecessary. So, they create a slight degree of tension on the Russian-Ukrainian border and that's it. And the Turks just need to sell their scrap metal somewhere ... I have another question - whose backside Ukraine is going to pay for equipment from NATO, the USA and Turkey in the future.

    Erdogan ignored the time-tested Russian observation - children should not be given matches, especially if children are not on friendly terms with their heads. And the Ukrainians are looking to set it on fire, but brighter, harder. The Turks seem to have excused themselves by the fact that this is exclusively a business and nothing more that does not correspond to the sad reality. Not only business, but also politics.

    I liked the "... divisions of the 30th separate mechanized brigade named after Prince Konstantin Ostrog ...".)))
    Ostrozhsky Konstantin Ivanovich - Hetman of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the famous Western Russian figure and zealot of Orthodoxy in Lithuanian Rus. The clan of the princes of Ostrog belonged to the number of Russian appanage clans, descended from the princes of Pinsk and Turov, descended from Svyatopolk II Izyaslavich, great-grandson of St. Vladimir.)))
    Probably the Skakuas do not know history well.))) Ostrog Fyodor Danilovich (died after 1441), canonized by the Orthodox Church under the name of Theodosius and the first to lay a solid foundation for the land wealth of the family, is the defender of the homeland and its covenants against the Poles and Latin: he is in the continuation of several years inflicted a number of defeats on the Poles and to the end defended the independence of Podolia and Volhynia. The son of Prince Fyodor Danilovich, Prince Vasily Fedorovich Krasny (died around 1461) continued his father's Russian policy more successfully.)))
