Turkey to develop heavy armed UAV

Turkish Defence Minister Nurettin Canikli has provided details of a new 4.5-tonne armed unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) called Akinci, able to carry four missiles. In an interview with the Yeni Safak daily on 24 February, Canikli said the Akinci would pave the way for Turkey to develop unmanned combat aircraft starting in 2027 based on the technology acquired. He also disclosed that a Turkish Defence Industries Executive Committee meeting in January selected local company Baykar Makina to develop the Akinci based on the Bayrak armed UAV. A contract with Baykar Makina would be signed soon, with Akinci deliveries beginning in 2021, he said. Want to read more?
