 Turkey UAV research and development staggered: lack of foreign aid development delay


According to the 11 daily newspaper of May, according to the United States strategy page website, the Turkey defense officer revealed that the Turkey air force had accepted 6 of the 40 Anka UAVs, which were ordered in 2013. So far, 8 Anka UAVs have been built in Turkey, but 2 of them have crashed during the flight test. In fact, Anka is delivered as an UAV system. Each Anka UAV system consists of 3 UAVs and ground control equipment, as well as a full set of necessary maintenance and ground operation devices. Reported that the appearance of Anka UAV is very similar to the Predator UAV of the United States. The Anka UAV weighs 1.6 tons, propeller propeller, its payload capacity is 200 kilograms, and the endurance time is 24 hours. The largest flight distance of the Anka UAV is 200 km, and the highest flying altitude is 7900 M. The UAV system will sell for more than 2 million dollars. The Turkey military should have received the first Anka UAV system by the end of 2013, but the technical problem has been postponed. Earlier, Turkey announced a larger Anka UAV model (weighing 4 tons), which could carry missiles or more reconnaissance equipment. This heavy Anka UAV has also been delayed delivery, and so far there has been no entry. At the same time, Turkey has developed and deployed a variety of operational UAVs. These UAVs are not as ambitious as Anka, and they mainly rely on mature commercial technologies. A small Turkey Private Companies developed the flag bearer Tactical UAV, which entered the Turkey air force in 2014. So far, Turkeys local customers are their sole source of tourists. The flag bearer Tactical UAV weighs 650 kilograms, the payload is 40 kilograms, and the endurance time is 24 hours. In addition, there is a mini type flag bearer UAV, weighing 4.6 kilograms, powered by batteries and manually launched. The mini type flag bearer has a duration of 60 minutes and a maximum flight distance of 15 km. Since 2007, the Turkey army has been using the mini type flag bearer UAV. The 2 flag bearer UAV uses relatively old, cheap and reliable technology and is delivered on time. The Turkey armed forces have about 30 flag bearer tactical UAVs, and have ordered 151. The Turkey military has lost at least one flag bearer Tactical UAV in the operation of Syria. The Turkey national police also ordered the flag bearer Tactical UAV. As of 2016, the flag bearer Tactical UAV has been equipped with 2 locally produced laser guided missiles in Turkey. In September 2016, a flag bearer Tactical UAV killed 6 Kurdish workers militants by using a 22 kilogram laser guided missile. Since the late 1990s, Turkey has been researching and developing UAVs. At that time, Israel remained an ally of Turkey and a supplier of weapons and technology. But after the Israeli government in Turkey took power in 2003, Turkey has staggered its domestic R & D efforts, but has not abandoned it completely. In 2016, the newly developed Anka UAV in Turkey first entered the service, but the delivery of mass production was postponed to 2017. In 2013, the Turkey air force ordered 10 sets of Anka UAV system. At the same time, Turkey has also announced that it will export UAVs to Egypt, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, but has not yet completed any export orders due to the performance and political reasons of the UAV.
