Azerbaijan to produce Turkish shock drones Akinci

45

Turkey intends to launch the production of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at Azerbaijani enterprises. Azerbaijan will start producing Turkish shock drones Akinci.


Seljuk Bayraktar, technical director of Baykar, said this in an interview with the Azerbaijani AzTV channel.

He stated that official Baku is extremely interested in the products of the Turkish company, therefore, wide prospects are opening up for it in a friendly country.

Ankara will transfer to the Azerbaijani side the technology for the production of Akinci heavy attack unmanned aerial vehicles.


One of the developments of Baykar, the Bayraktar TB2 drones, was actively used by Azerbaijan during the 44-day war in Nagorno-Karabakh. Before the start of hostilities, Turkey supplied dozens of such devices to Baku. Several contracts were signed after the war.

In January 2022, the Turkish defense company Baykar entered into the first export contract with an unnamed buyer for the supply of Akinci strike drones. Under the contract, the company will supply the consumer with the devices themselves and their ground control systems.

Earlier, in 2021, Motor Sich JSC signed a cooperation agreement with the Turks, which provides for the production of AI-450 power plants for Akinci strike UAVs at the Ukrainian enterprise.

        "Now everyone is comparing our Orion with the Turkish Bayraktar. But if Bayraktar had been created in Russia, it would not have passed state tests according to our requirements. We are confident in our Orion that it surpasses its Turkish counterpart in many ways."

            A very funny statement, actually. It is strange to demand that a foreign manufacturer meet our requirements. All the more extremely specific gosami. In addition, it compares the UAV with a difference in takeoff weight of 1,5 -1,8 times. When compared with the real Turkish classmate Anka, the picture is depressing.

              the success of the baikatar is still in the complex. it has no breakthroughs, but the chamber and ammunition and engines are well matched and do not give much heat.
              if the akinchi has its own ammunition (the Baikatar ammunition is too small for it), then the car can turn out to be very useful. even better than a biker.

                Akyndzhi class UAVs are best used as scouts. They can be equipped with powerful radars, electronic warfare systems, radio sonar buoys, etc.
                Of course, they have cruise missiles and analogues of JDAM with GBU-39, but they are not ashamed to use them from a manned aircraft, but a UAV with a jet engine is better, they are just developing them.

        In my opinion - a dead end branch. I once heard the funny name of the shrimp "overgrown louse". Stealth has lost, and creeps also slowly. Before the Patriotic War, on the model of the record ANT-25, they tried to mold both a bomber and a reconnaissance aircraft. Dead end. Like our Sirius. Speed ​​was more important. TRD and transonic speeds. And UAVs will repeat the history of manned aviation. There will be Sabers and MiG-15s in a cheap version. Well, maybe a straight-winged U-2 as a patrol.

          It was so. Tupolev from his record aircraft, pushing the competitor Ilyushin (TsKB-30), tried to attach this miracle at a speed of 150 km / h and a single machine gun. And even 50 copies made. Well, Ilyushin managed to show his Central Design Bureau at the air parade, then it turned out from his IL-4, he fought the whole war in the ADD.

          Assembling from high-tech components is a very difficult task. You screw up a little - the whole product is down the drain.
          Example: Su-57 assembly. For a year - two planes. And the components come from other companies.

        Is it really not clear that the question is rhetorical ... This is a praise for Azerbaijan that it continues to develop PRODUCTION !!! Let it be assembly, let it be stamping... The country is following the path that the advanced countries of the world once chose and developing industry, and not selling resources...
        I don’t want to ask or communicate with those “almost apostles” who, like dogma, repeat from post to post and draw their panegyrics, who do not distinguish between sarcasm or irony ...
        Don’t make me fall out of love with the USSR, where industry WAS DEVELOPED ... I won’t love those marauders who, instead of developing Russia, determined it to become a feeding trough, which will be empty anyway, and people will be left with a bare bottom and a poor economy. When there will be no gasoline at gas stations ... Or do you think that oil and gas will never run out?

    It is interesting, but what about the components, in the same place, 40 percent of components and assemblies are not Turkish, but under licenses from the European Union. Taking into account the fact that Azerbaijan fought with Karabakh, the same Germany will not supply part of the component parts at all, it will cancel the contracts, and all is short-lived. And, for example, their optics, the Turks will not replace their own, the quality and the result of use are incomparable!

    This is beneficial for both Turkey and Azerbaijan .. The Turks free up the production line for other projects, and Azerbaijan receives production (albeit an assembly one) and jobs .. In the future, local specialists can start working on various projects themselves, because the basis for this already exists .. Dozens of specialists from Azerbaijan are already undergoing industrial practice in the Bayraktar concern ..
    Soon these UAVs will be adopted by the Azerbaijani Armed Forces .. There is a contract and it is being implemented .. Soon, the transfer of the production of ammunition for UAVs will begin, which is another big plus for Baku ..
    The Shusha Declaration has already been officially approved by both sides and it is starting to gain momentum.

    If you want to see a modern UAV, this is for the Americans, but it’s not fresh either. Turboprop Reapers with similar performance characteristics were created 20 years ago. And the development of piston-powered UAVs is the Predators of 30 years ago - these are the same Orions, Bayraktars, Jewish crafts and other trash.
    Modern turboprop internal combustion engines, modern means of communication and navigation, modern digital sensors for obtaining an array of information and powerful on-board computers for processing it - the one who knows how to produce all this is the most advanced UAV manufacturer on our Earth), as it were, it is clear that this is one country )
