Turkey announced the development of a new drone drone

24
Relations between the United States and Turkey are going through hard times, especially in the area of ​​arms procurement. This circumstance prompted the Turkish designers to develop a new weaponsincluding shock drone, reports resource Liveleak.com.




“(Deterioration of relations) is worrying, but we hope that the US-Turkish differences on individual issues will not cause weakness in our common efforts,” says the publication of the word of an unnamed NATO diplomat in Ankara.

However, the Turkish defense industry, to some extent, even grateful to the Americans for their policies, which forced the domestic designers to be more active.

“I don’t want to be sarcastic, but I would like to thank the US government for refusing to sell us weapons to force us to develop our own systems, in which we have made considerable progress,”
He quotes the publication of the Chief of the Undersecretariat of the Defense Industry of Turkey, Ismail Demir.

According to him, Turkish specialists "successfully developed an armed UAV Bayraktar, capable of destroying ground targets at a distance of 8 km with MAM-L and MAM-C guided missiles, which were created by the national company Roketsan and weigh on 22,5 kg with 10-kilogram warhead."

“From now on, Turkey does not need American UAVs of this class,” Demir said.

We are talking about the American MQ-9 Reaper drones, for which Ankara is waiting for delivery permits from the 2009.

        There are not many serious countries producing weapons and military equipment in the world. I think this: if our ill-wishers will buy equipment from the United States, Germany, Israel, then for us this creates problems due to a sufficiently high design and engineering level, as well as workmanship. But when our enemies begin to engage in amateur activity, then the flag is in their hands. Again, our likely profit partners miss out

    "MQ-9 Reaper" - this is the one that in March 2014 in the Crimea near Perekop - intercepted and planted ??? :)

    We are waiting for a sample of Bayraktar for review;) The electronic warfare "Avtobaza" is already in Syria.

        Russian interceptors are the most intercepted in the world, no jokes smile , it is necessary, and the "black lord" will be intercepted and buried, no matter what he shows off, a banano-eater. laughing

        It’s clear that we don’t know how to read, we don’t keep track of the final conferences, we can only cut a dumbass somewhere, having heard something somewhere in the early days, when there is an information storm, and everyone writes, everything that’s awesome ...

        Tracking information in half a year, when the information noise has subsided - religion does not allow you "jokers" ...

        Ok, read:

        As a result of the measures taken, two unmanned vehicles were intercepted. Both are of Israeli design type MQ-5B Hunter. One of the aircraft, according to the publication, on March 10 was shot down by militia of the city of Armyansk. The second was put on the ground with the help of the Russian ground-based complex of executive radio-technical intelligence 1L222 "Air Base"

        If it seems to someone that this is bullshit, then read about how the secret UAV was planted in Iran (as the Pind0s then hysterized - you can find it yourself):

    China is already exporting drums, Turkey has launched, Zimbabwe will launch soon. And we sleep, then we can’t produce motors. something else ...

      Keep in mind that Turkey, as a member of NATO, has access to many of which you can independently make both UAVs and ammunition. We do not have such an opportunity. For example, you can buy elements of a homing system from partners in the block, but we need to do it on our own. You can buy ready-made aircraft engines from leading companies in this direction ... We, for obvious reasons, must do everything on our own, and given that in the USSR engines for small aircraft were not designed and everything was limited to one M-14, we have to start from scratch. The best way out would be to develop small aircraft, but ...

        The funny thing is that we produce the main components ourselves, the problem was in composites and engines up to 1000 hp piston and turboprop, bought a license for Austrian diesel 500 hp and silence. We produce weapons, there is optics, communication too. The technology of distant UAVs is not yet available to us, they are controlled via satellite. We need a grouping covering a large territory and the satellites themselves.

        what Is it really so difficult to make small engines? is it so difficult to reduce existing developments with an appropriate recalculation. Plus, for a strike UAV, a small engine is not so necessary, given their size and wearable BC.

    With these parameters, the train can be built and there will be a night witch :-)

    8km, of course it's cool, well, + launch the 20-30km rocket ... Then why do you need a drone, it's easier than a smart tactical rocket on the 30-50km.

      Well, of course, a tactical missile will cost orders of magnitude "cheaper" than a UAV, as these Turks did not think of it before, I can't imagine smile .

    It’s a pity that we don’t have any responsibility for this area. All programs fail and we haven’t progressed further than the tactical scout.

        What does it give up ..? belay Just a look at reality. Or are they going to fight with models, which have been carrying around at exhibitions for decades? Our army and navy need large drones. Only for me the question is always: why is it difficult for many to admit this fact. all American "land" like a useless cut.

      The tactics of using weapons and warfare plus development and implementation costs are disproportionate. Maybe it’s not worth the effort.
      My personal opinion.

    All militarily developed countries "aim", and the UAV as a sight from 8 km - he will probably be in the target zone, and will overwhelm him like a husband or be imprisoned.

    Kurds that are not warriors? Who said that they do not have MANPADS, and tomorrow they may appear. The Yugoslavs, too, allegedly did not have anything, and the Stealths were driven into the ground with their muzzle.

      Without a radar you will not see them and you will not get them, especially with a piston or electric engine. Turboprops fly higher, but they do not radiate much heat either.
      During the war with the Georgians, UAVs hung over our troops at 4000-5000 m and we could not do anything about it, but they corrected artillery ....

    We’ll let the Turks go, ce, hahah)) they turned the military site into a bunch of children.
    In fact, they are developing this direction and this is already good for the military, they will run in, gain experience, then they will do better.

    The interesting moment is different. Which elements in this UAV are purely Turkish, which are joint and which are foreign. And the quality of these products. Everything else is just blah blah.
