In early February, the first operational flight of the Turkish UAV Anka, developed in the interests of the Ministry of Defense by the association "Turkish Aerospace Industries" (TAI), took place, the blog bmpd with reference to the press service of the enterprise.


New Turkish UAV Anka made the first full flight


According to the company, “the device took off at Elazig airport in Eastern Turkey and made a four-hour reconnaissance flight at an altitude of 19 thousand feet (about 5800 m) over Turkish territory” (most likely over areas where an operation is being conducted against Kurdish rebels).

“This flight became an important stage of the“ long-term ”program of creating its own Turkish MALE Anka (“ Phoenix ”) class UAVs, launched under the auspices of TAI in 2004 year. The first flight of the Anka UAV's first prototype took place in December 2010 of the year, but the tests and testing of the device were significantly delayed, and of the five prototypes designated Anka Block A, three were lost, ”the author notes.

At the end of 2013, the Ministry of Defense concluded a contract with the association for the supply of 10-UAVs with the designation Anka Block B. The first test flight of the device from this series was made in January last year.

Help bmpd: “The Anka Block B UAV has a maximum take-off weight of 1680 kg, a wingspan of 17,4 m and is equipped with a Thielert Centurion 2.0 piston engine of 155 hp. Declared maximum flight duration 24 hours. However, Anka Block B devices are still not equipped with satellite control and data transmission systems, which does not allow them to be used over a long distance. ”

            Yes, they seem to have already worked out the technique for countering UAVs without air defense, using electronic warfare. They don’t fly over Crimea anymore - they are over.

    ANKARA, Feb 9 - RIA News. Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that his country intends to protect Syrian Aleppo, calling it the return of historical debt.

    "We will return our historical debt. Once our brothers from Aleppo defended our cities - Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kahramanmaras (during the First World War - ed.), Now we will defend the heroic Aleppo. Behind the back of its defenders is the whole of Turkey," said Davutoglu, speaking at a meeting of the parliamentary faction of the ruling Justice and Development Party headed by him.

    RIA Novosti http://ria.ru/syria_chronicle/20160209/1371836829.html#ixzz3zfXTUOeK

    Wherein:

    The Syrian army is conducting an attack on Tell Rifaat. This settlement is the last stronghold of the IG, located north of Aleppo.

    Government forces are conducting artillery fire in the Kfar Naya area, located 3 kilometers from Tell Rifaat. At the same time, an offensive is being carried out near the city of Retyan.

    If successful, Damascus will cause irreparable damage to the rebels of the Jebhat al-Shamiya group, which, according to numerous intelligence sources, supports Turkey. If the SAR Armed Forces succeed in achieving this, then a road will open in front of them to the border city of Aazaz, where the main rear bases of the Islamists are located.

    Syrian military experts argue that this prospect is very real today, since air support provides Damascus with an advantage over terrorists.

    In recent weeks, the Syrian army has been able to regain control of the city of Kfin, located 5 km from Tell Rifaat, having knocked out Jebhat al-Nusra troops from there.

    Kurds are also active in the fight against Islamists. In the border region with Turkey, they were able to clean four villages from terrorists - Maranaz, Khrebi, Deir Jamal, and also Ez-Ziyarah. Thanks to this, the area east of Afrin is almost completely freed from the Islamists.

    Positive dynamics are also observed in the east of Syria. In northern Latakia, government forces drove jihadists out of Al-Khor and Suwaidi Wadi al-Azraq. Joining forces with the local militia, the Republican Guard surrounded the last area occupied by the militants - Kensabu.

      This is a shock drone, it will drag some kind of rocket or rocket. Since the project is still incomplete, there is no binding to GPS, it is still difficult to say what it will be equipped with. But here they write that Egypt wants to buy such 10 pieces.

    When our developers give the army and navy a vehicle with a take-off weight of 1.5 tons, I will laugh at the Turkish squalor. For now, only declarations and "small forms", unfortunately. And we should have such capabilities for reconnaissance and combat patrolling, yesterday!

        Alexey hi , with the "Korshun" it is understandable, but the ideology of application and characteristics in it are somewhat different. But the "Skat" was slowed down in development and there is no flying one, let alone in the troops. "Generals" from our defense industry said that they would soon give a heavy They even wanted to create a drone, a single training ground for used aircraft. I'm really looking forward to when we discuss the first model here. Well, like the "Armata" after the parade. For me, it would be a happy day.

          If I do not confuse anything, our generals have not decided how heavy a drone we need. There were rumors that up to an unmanned strategic missile carrier, that is PAK YES but without a crew.
          My humble opinion is that we need a relatively light UAV for, mainly, strikes on armored vehicles. A certain analogue of the American MQ-1, MQ-1C

            In general, Russia needs, first of all, small unmanned reconnaissance vehicles capable of hiding in a clear sky, hanging there day and night, seeing a mouse in a hole at any time of the day, and at the same time issuing accurate target designation with selection not only of the target class, but also by means of destruction in real time. With shock half-robots, even the "exceptional" ones are pretty lousy. The good news is that the operation in Syria showed the presence of reconnaissance drones in the Russian army, but according to site visitors, they are still not enough.

    The people suddenly began to remember the "Furman" heroes, and that's what inspired them.
    The question is that it’s now that the Turks are circling Anku over their territory, and will soon try to use Syria, and in this case our advertised air defense and electronic warfare systems will no longer be able to face the dirt. You understand ...

    But, it is worth recognizing that they defeat the Kurds in their own country. The last bastion of organized resistance is being squeezed. The Syrian Kurds did not help, and the Iraqi on the contrary helped the Turks.

      The most remarkable thing is that this is happening under the music library of European "mourners" and under the approval of the American "exceptional" people who consider the Kurdish people their allies (at least they proclaimed them as such).

      the forces are too unequal, the RPK and their actions have always been directed at PR, at the public, their goal was not to defeat the Turks, but to try to force the government to the political process through the world community. a direct military clash is definitely a losing path. even if you equip the remnants of the rpc with modern ptrk (as is often suggested here), this will not work.
      now the so-called the world community is not up to the Kurds, because there is Syria, there is Ukraine, there are refugees. a good chance for the Turkish government, under the guise of a radical solution to the issue of the RPK.
