I know he mentions a situation in the past, but that is WRONG. Bayraktar TB2 was never an "imported & assembled" product. It already had a very high localization rate for years, even before Karabakh War. The number just went higher over time, not otherwise. You should read what he said:
That has never happened, as I said before. Trying to justify the false information is meaningless."There was a time when Seljuk said nearly everything in TB2 was domestically produced and it turned out nearly everything was imported and assembled."
On top of that, most of the electronics of TB2 are designed by Baykar itself and not of foreign origin. The engine is never replaced with a domestic counterpart as there is no need to do so.
