Turkish Military Received First Akıncı Combat Drones In Official Ceremony (Photos)

Akıncı combat drone of Bayraktar at Teknofest, 17 September 2019, By Wikimedia user (CeeGee).

On August 29, Turkey’s leading drone manufacturer Baykar handed over the first four Bayraktar Akıncıs combat drones to the Turkish military.

The advanced drones entered service with the Turkish military in a ceremony held in the northwestern province of Tekirdağ and attended by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Baykar’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Selçuk Bayraktar and many other officials.

“With the Akıncıs UCAV [unmanned combat aerial vehicle], Turkey has become one of the top three countries in this technology,” Erdogan, who signed the new drones, said during the ceremony.

Two Akıncıs drones were handed over to the Land Forces Command, 2nd Army Drone Battalion Command while the other two drones entered service with the 341st Gölge [Shadow] Squadron of the Air Force Command.

With a wingspan of 20 meters, Akıncıs is among Turkey’s largest combat drones. The drone was designed by Baykar to carry out intelligence, surveillance and target acquisition (ISTAR) missions, command, control and communication (C3) tasks as well as combat operations.

The combat drone can deliver a wide variety of weapons. Earlier this year, the drone 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. The drone also tested the HGK-84 guided bomb.

Last July, Akıncıs set a new national aviation record by flying at an altitude of 38,039 feet and staying in the air for 25 hours and 46 minutes.

The Akıncıs combat drone will boost the long-range combat and surveillance capabilities of the Turkish military, which has been expanding its operations in the Middle East and North Africa like never before.

5 votes, all 1 star. Turks must be proud of the envy.

Random Guy

I doubt votes on SF anyhow affects the performance of the drone

The Objective

Who cares about your votes. They only matter on SF.

Turboprop = nice slow & easy target for Syrian SAM’s. Don’t think for a moment that a ceiling height of 38,000 feet will save them should they stray much past Idlib’s occupied territories.

The Objective

Erdogan is the most popular leader in the Arab world. He’s also the most popular leader in the Muslim world. That makes Turkey the most loved country in the Muslim world and Arab world.
About your declining powers conquering Turkey, it is much too late. The U.S has too many problems and Russia simply doesn’t have the military might to even defeat Turkey one-on-one. All that is left of Russia’s power is nukes. Strip Russia of its nukes and it is just another Britain. China is not looking for a fight with any Muslim country. It seeks cooperation with the Muslim world. Russia and America are the real warmongers of our time, but they simply don’t have the military power to achieve their evil designs on the Muslim world.
Afghanistan is the opening phase of your ultimate defeat. From now on, you won’t get any decisive victory against a Sunni Muslim army. That time is over, and you’ll soon know.

Ahson

brah please…..do you know how much debt turkey is under as of today? if Iran cuts the oil and gas and Russia does the same do you realize what will happen to your chinku ass? do you?……We can fuck you in front of everyone, but we are not uncivilized like you to kill innocent people. Don’t think yous got any balls…….We cut them off in the SyRaq……you got that?……Don’t talk it up…..you know your place.

turkey and ukraine make the best tech. russia is dying, southfront is dying, censorship and communism will kill you all.

Theologos

nice aerial target …..too big and slow
its worthless against advanced air defences

Random Guy

I doubt they were planning to send it in vanguard

The Objective

Too big and slow? Well, they are big enough to carry 24 munitions – enough to wipe out an entire convoy of Russian troops in Syria in one strike mission alone. They are also stealthy enough to hover right above S400 and Pantsir batteries undetected. You should be careful of your overconfidence in Russian air defense systems. These drones are more deadly than Bayraktar TB2

Ahson

We’ve seen all yous got in the SyRaq…….don’t talk big or we’ll knock yous up bitch. Fuckin deport yous back to Xinjiang. STFU already before I get irritated with your jihadist rubbish.
