Concerns are also heightened by various statements by the Turkish authorities. The President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has often remarked that their drones reach Africa, Asia and Europe.

Turkish Industry Minister Mustafa Varanka claims that their armed forces have the least 200 drones.

A few days ago, the chief executive director of the private Turkish defense company Baykar – Selcuk Bayraktar, who is also Erdogan’s son-in-law, introduced Kizil Elma (“The Red Apple”) – a new model of unmanned combat aircraft. It is fully Turkish-made and is expected to fly for the first time in March 2023.

To date, Baykar considers its most successful unmanned fighter Bayraktar TB2. At least 300 aircraft were produced of this model, approxo 180 of them are in service with the Turkish security forces.

They are used to deliver targeted strikes on tanks and armored fighting vehicles. The export success of this drone model has been impressive, with units sold in Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Qatar, Libya, Turkmenistan, Nigeria and Pakistan. There is also information that it has delivered units to Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kyrgyzstan. Poland has also placed an order from 24 Bayraktar TB2 aircraft.

Bayraktar Akinci is the company’s second drone capable of carrying surface-to-air and air-to-air weapon systems.
