Turkey showed a new strike drone similar to the Russian Okhotnik UAV

Turkey actively develops, manufactures and exports unmanned aerial vehicles. Along with conventional UAVs, the Turks are also developing jet-powered drones, such as the Bayraktar Kızılelma. Soon, another Turkish device will be added to it.


Turkish company TUSAŞ Engine Industries, a subsidiary of Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), has begun development of a new heavy jet-powered drone called the Anka-3. The assembly of the first prototype and the start of testing are scheduled for the next year, 2023, so far only an image of a promising UAV has been shown.

(...) Anka-3 is a new generation project that will take the capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles to a higher level (...) it will open a new page in the field of UAVs with its jet engine and speed, large payload and almost invisible design on radar . Next year we will continue to share good the news from our project

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said.

Judging by the image, the Turkish Anka-3 UAV resembles the Russian S-70 "Okhotnik" UAV, also made according to the "flying wing" scheme. The maximum takeoff weight of the Turkish drone will be about 7 tons, it will be equipped with a turbofan jet engine.

It is planned that the new drone will be able to attack ground targets even in areas with a strong air defense system thanks to its armament and its design, invisible to radar.

    Anka-3 analogue of RQ-170. The S-70 is a completely different class, stupidly 25-27 tons of maximum takeoff weight for a hunter, and 7 tons for a Turkish UAV.

        There is where to go. Only here the Turks will launch their own series, but it’s not clear with us. It seems that there are a lot of samples of all kinds of equipment, but things don’t go beyond prototypes and single samples.

    The difference in mass at times and the absence of the Su-57 among the Turks as a mandatory component for unlocking the potential of the S-70 is far from a complete list of what hurts the eye.

          And that without socialism it is impossible to work at all? All over the world they work somehow, but we can’t? So maybe it's not about socialism, but about the reflection in the mirror? The fish rots from the head.

      There are more than a dozen analogues of S-70 in at least the United States, European countries, China, and Iran. If we talk about the order of appearance, then the Hunter is in the 10th place. Here is the French version, the design of the S-70 is closest to it.

    Somehow, before the war, UAVs of medium mass-dimensional characteristics were the favorites. Here, like "Bayraktar", the Russian "Outpost". About "Hunter", it was said that this is a way out, because. technologically and unificationally, it is close to the aircraft in production, so they do what they can, and not what they need. It turned out that the "bayraktars" are not favorites, but the "hunters" have a certain perspective. Their armament power is comparable to manned vehicles, and in conditions of unsuppressed air defense, at least partially, they could perform the function of aircraft. I think that powerful free-planing bombs could also be hung on them. I wonder if something is even moving about the "hunters"?

    But speaking seriously, it is worth noting that we have a lot of developments, and we are attacking the Ukrainian with Iranian mopeds. Therefore, we now compare the fifth point with a finger. At the moment, there is neither our Hunter nor their Anka. And under the sanctions, we are unlikely to be able to fully implement the Hunter project in the near future. We need to focus our efforts on the production of the Orlan-30 UAV, which is now in high demand at the front...

      Also, it is obvious that "Altius" and "Orion" are needed in good quantities.

      But the lower weight of the Turkish UAV, compared to the "Hunter", may mean a smaller size and less visibility on radars.
