Defence Q&A Does Turkiye have any unmanned underwater vehicle programs?

Solution
Not quite so,
are the Turks sleeping on unmanned submarines?
There are several unmanned underwater vehicle programmes. Just do a search under Naval Programs thread to see something i have earlier posted.

Yet, there is still no works on an actual unmanned / crewless submarine apart from conceptual stage.

There is another multi-purpose midget submarine project that will have an unmanned variant both for ISR and ASuW duties on top of being unmanned test vehicle for future submarine components.

Havelsan / Aselsan works on a new kind of UUV of multiple sizes for sensor network, ISR duties.

Aselsan individually works on a torpedo tube launched UUV.

There are several very small UUV...

There is no doubt that unmanned submarines are in the works. A very interesting project is the KM-STC10, intended for use by special forces. You can see it below. I have a strong suspicion that Aselsan or Meteksan has reached out to Kuasar Marin to collaborate for an unmanned variant.

There is also a few smaller projects ongoing, and there is a possibility that STM is already working on a large unmanned submarine.

There are several very small UUV / ROVs, for anti-mine, scanning etc.

Tubitak has a group working on UUV, USV and integration of those. Data collection etc.

Etc etc.
