Turkish Bayraktar TB2 Combat Drone Crashed Near Syrian Border

IMAGE: gazeteilksayfa.com

A unmanned combat aerial vehicle has crashed after taking off from Batman Air Base in the Turkish Southeastern Anatolia Region that borders with northern Syria.

The 14th Drone Systems Base Command under the Turkish Air Force is located at this particular airbase.

According to Turkish sources, the incident was caused by some kind of technical malfunction and the investigation into it is ongoing.

The Turkish military provided no details into the type of the crashed UCAV, but photos from the ground allow to identify it as the Bayraktar TB2.

According to Syrian sources, Turkey lost at least 13 UCAVs: 6 Anka-S and 7 Bayraktar TB2 during the recent escalation in Syria’s Greater Idlib region. Nonetheless, this number is yet to be confirmed by photo and video evidence.

More like 21…

BMWA1

Did Turks have any WW1 aces?

Lone Ranger

Not that I know of…:)

Barba_Papa

None that are known, but they did have an air force at the time. It was never big and as the war progressed was more and more staffed by Germans.

Still, let us not disparage the Ottomans, they did put up a strong resistance and even inflicted two humiliating defeats on the British at Gallipoli and Kut.

”According to Syrian sources, Turkey lost at least 13 UCAVs: 6 Anka-S and 7 Bayraktar TB2 during the recent escalation in Syria’s Greater Idlib region. Nonetheless, this number is yet to be confirmed by photo and video evidence.”

Yesterday it was 20 + , now it is 13, but ‘ yet to be confirmed by photo and video evindence”.

Emphasis on the ‘photo and video evidence’,on the contrary to the annihilated Pantsirs evindenced by various videos.

Stalin era tech developed byRussian peasants working for food at Gulag some decades ago. LOL

Saif Imam

Hi there, I thought you would be here. The desert was fine last night, you are invited…???

Sencer

I will be here for a while, till I am bored of dull people like you with cheap emogies. It usually takes2 to 3 days.

Can you tell us the story of your immigration ? I am especially interested in the part how you evolved to an OREO from an Imam.

Saif Imam

You need a hand to pick cotton from your field? Looking for cheap labor? At least I’m using my real name, you wanna see my real face?

Sencer

No thanks Saif. Are you from Bangladesh originally ?

Saif Imam

Why? What’s going on with Bangladesh now?

Wizzy

Keyboard warriors

Sencer

And you are a soldier joining this nice conversation from front lines , arent you ?

Saif Imam

It’s ok here man, we’re just talking..? ?

Wizzy

Dude, UAV and UCAV are two different things. The 20+ lost were mostly recon drones

John

Pffffffft, what are you talking about Willis?

Gary Sellars

The nagger is on crack…

Sencer

Sure , on yr moms crack.

Sencer

Talking about things you fail to reply , bum.
Wanna try ?

John

Look, the English is a little off but, that is okay. You can stay in riddle land if you wish but, try spitting it out straight. You will get further.

Btw, wanna try what?

Horace Lacondeta

Meanwhile, F16 and F35 are still not entering into Syrian airspace….
Somebody with a little bit of common sense, obviously not you, may wonder why.

Sencer

Why someone risk more valuable assets if he has cheaper alternatives to do the job ? Why someone would risk expensive planes while he can shoot 3 enemy planes without leaving his own airaspace ?

Horace Lacondeta

Do the job?
US left Syria in a hurry.
Turkey is being squeezed like a lemon.
Israel strike from their own airspace.
Where do you see a job done here, when Assad is stronger now than ever?

Sencer

You are living in a dream land, dude.

Horace Lacondeta

Well we both know that you don’t believe what you say,
You are just a troll who is still having hard time swallowing the reality.
Assad won with a decimated army… how shameful this is for NATO/Jihadis/Israel…

Sencer

Unlike you I am a realist and I tell what I believe.
I also look at the map before posting.

Assad was about to lose his head before Russia involved , do you seriously think now Assad is fighting with a decimated army and ”winning” without full help from Russia , Wagner , Iran and all those shia pesants with unvaluable lives from Afghanistan and Pakistan ?

Horace , why dont you change yr nick to Pollyanna ?

Horace Lacondeta

But how come Russia can defeat Turkey, US and Israel with Staline era tech?
Do you finally understand your own contradictions?

Human kind is doomed

LOL! No, he doesn’t realise his contradictions at all!
That kind of schizophrenic thinking is wide spread throughout all of western countries! One moment narrative is “Russia is weak, paper tiger, on the brink of collapse” and at the next moment, “Russia is threat No 1, they are getting ready to conquer the world and whole of milky way” and general public is sucking on that bullshit regularly.

Sencer

LOL. Back to square one. Do you seriously believe that Russia defeated above three ?

Horace Lacondeta

Yes, all it takes is 2 maps : Syria before Russian intervention, and now.

Legis Legis Juscius

your drones were alowed to operate by sochi agreement, but you armed them and done sneaky attack on SAA, but when russians ineterfered your drones disapeared and stopped attacking…WHY?

Saif Imam

Assad was fending off every one from all front. Syria was about to become another Iraq ,Libya fucked up the Overlord Cunt US, NATO, Turks and cuddle buddy Terrorist ISIS before Russia intervened. Any way no point to tell you this from the desert ? ?

Wahid Algiers

Go back fucking your mother.

Sencer

Normal people dont do that , Wahid. This habit only belongs to sexualy deprieved pesansts flike you.

Human kind is doomed

UCAVs and UAVs, there is a difference you know, but don’t let that small detail ruin your fun here…

Sencer

Nope I am fine with it while you desperately try to divert the attention with trivia.

Human kind is doomed

You are one awful troll, that’s what you are!
If i was your employer, i wouldn’t give you any Lira because you suck at trolling.

Wizzy

EW at work. If Turkey is not careful, their drones may never fly again in Syria. Those 48 hrs are the best they ever gonna get

Shia man

Can this be the reason

Crashed… after a Syria/Russian SAM missile initiated a rapid spontaneous disassembly at altitude?

Assad must stay

Shitty bayraktars hahahaha

Garga

Batman air base… hmm… I think we all know the culprit:

Anti-Zionsist

Batman Airbase lol

Georgios

Too many fails. Does anyone knows how many “Easy Smashed Drones” have been left in Turkey?

Saif Imam

Drone activity will be reduced drastically. Russians are doing something with their EW systems.

GuyQ

The rate at which they are knocked out the air, the factory must be cranking them out at a fast rate.

GuyQ

What?????? Erdogan wants to jointly manage Syria’s oil fields

https://www.almasdarnews.com/article/erdogan-wants-to-jointly-manage-syrias-oil-fields/

FlorianGeyer

Just like Erdo did with his ISIS partners in crime.

Wahid Algiers

Turkey’s Operation Spring Shield in real is a Turkey’s Operation Falling Drones, Running Gypsies and Türkü Tales
