Turkey's Bayraktar Akıncı Drone Spotted With Heavy Guided Bomb (Photos)

Turkey’s drone manufacturer Baykar has begun testing a heavy guided bomb on the Bayraktar Akinci combat drone.

On June 23, Baykar Chief Technology Officer Selçuk Bayraktar, shared photos of the first mass-produced version of the drone, the Akinci S-1, carrying a single HGK-84 bomb in its underbelly hardpoint.

Developed by Turkey’s TÜBİTAK-SAGE, the HGK is a kit used to converts bombs from 227 to 907 kg into precision-guided munitions. The system is Turkey’s adoption of the US Joint Direct Attack Munition guidance kit.

The guidance kit is equipped with an inertial navigation system as well as a GPS receiver. Bombs equipped with the kit have a range of up to 28 km and a circular error probable of 6 meters only. The accuracy can be further improved with the addition of the CAMGÖZ semi active-laser seeker.

The heavy guided bomb will improve the fire power of the Akinci, which has an operational range of 5,000 km and an endurance of 24 hours.

The combat drone can be also armed with Turkish-made small-diameter guided munitions like the MAM-C and MAM-L. Furthermore, the drone recently test-fired the MAM-T glide bomb. The bomb has a maximum range of 30 km and is guided by GPS as well as semi-active laser.

Turkey has been actively developing the stand-off capabilities and the fire power of its combat drones. This will allow Turkish drone to engage targets like air-defense systems, jammers, radars, fortified positions and reinforced buildings in the near future.

If it works its a very nasty one firing from a max range at 24 kilometer.

So the defender has to hit the missiles(or one big one).

Often Targeted

Combining this new capability with Turkey’s new surveillance drones will have devastating effects on any adversary. The surveillance drones, which are smaller and more difficult to spot and shoot down, will designate targets thousands of kilometres away. And this targeting will be updated by the minute as a target moves. As for fixed targets, this would be easier to locate once designated.

You are forgetting one major obstacle. Russian A2/AD zone which is a multi layered air defense region that even the idiotic americans cannot defeat.

All targets tracked, locked on, scanned, signals acquired etc. Do not confuse Russia’s patience with their capabilities.

They can lock on and land this turkish crap to a destination of their choice.

No specs yet on flight ceiling. Road mobile systems like the Pantsir S1 would likely make short work of this class of drone.
