Turkey orders drone engines from Ukraine

TEXT: KONSTANTIN KATYSHEV, 11 November 2021, 22:25





Unmanned fighter MIUS should take to the skies in 2023

The MIUS unmanned fighter should have a speed of about supersonic, a working ceiling height of up to 12 kilometers and the ability to lift 1 ton of missile weapons.

The Turkish manufacturer of combat drones, Baykar Makina, has signed a contract for the supply of AI-322F jet engines with the Ukrainian company Ivchenko-Progress for Bayraktar MİUS drones. This was reported by the press service of Baykar Makina on Thursday, November 11.

"On the second day of SahaExpo2021, we signed contracts for the supply of AI-322F engines by the leading Ukrainian company Ivchenko-Progress for our MİUS (combat unmanned aerial system - ed.) Project," the message says.

According to Defense Express, this is the SAHA international arms exhibition, which is taking place in Istanbul. New Turkish unmanned fighter jets should take to the skies as early as 2023.

Journalists believe that at first the Ukrainian enterprise will develop engines for pre-production cars - after successfully passing all tests, they will be supplied in large quantities.

AI-322F is the newest and only Ukrainian turbojet bypass engine with an afterburner. It is designed for modern supersonic combat trainers and light combat aircraft with moderate supersonic speeds. The MIUS unmanned fighter should have a speed of about supersonic, a working ceiling height of up to 12 kilometers and the ability to lift 1 ton of missile weapons.

It is an open secret that Roketsan developed MAM-L with thermobaric warhead with the help of Numerics Software GmbH.

Numerics Software GmbH specializes in calculating the optimal explosive effect of armor-piercing weapons.

The federal government has only denied that the Numerics had helped the Roketsan with warheads with armor-piercing function. But she left the question unanswered with thormabaric warheads.

We didn't get help from germany.We only bought warheads from TDW until 2018

This is really a good concept that the Iranians have come up with and used effectively by the Houthis. FEDAI is more akin to engaging smaller swarm type UAVs. But something like what the Iranians have come up with should be considered!
Ha ha ha

Alternative engine for AKINCI​

Motor Sich JSC Marketing and Sales Manager Pavlo Kasai said that with each agreement, the security and strength of the two countries increased as well as their cooperation. "I can assure you that everything will be on time and that the engines will be delivered on time and will work well," Kasai said.

Bayraktar and Kasai signed the agreement after the speeches.



Reported that Turkey & Ukraine have signed a contract to supply 30 AI-450T engines for the Akinci UAV.
By the end of 2022, Motor Sich plant will deliver 30 sets to Ivchenko-Progress plant at 236,000$/unit. Total contract is 7.1million$ (via Военный Осведомитель)




I wish Black Sea Shield would be utilized but since the Engines will be delivered in 2022 I assume no National Production until at least 2023.
Perhaps Ukraine isn't interested in Sharing work.

The Website hasn't been updated since their foundation in mid 2019

If we are optimistic. They might simply lack the Facilities at the moment.

Baykar was granted additional Land in 29.04.2021.

Could be Incorporated here.

But not much Progress at the Site. Notice some Details.

- The Line on the Right seems like Parking Space
- The Cube is the Showroom. Image is from Google Maps but is likely almost finished because Google Satellite image is from 04/2021.

Perhaps @TheInsider knows more.
As far as I know, the project is enjoying state incentives and on track. Baykar's financial position is very good and it will improve even more. I doubt new facility construction will be a problem.

These FEDAI drones, are they homegrown Turkish products or ToT from a foreign country? Thanks

Baykar signs agreement to purchase and integrate AI322F Ukrainian jet engines for MIUS.
This makes sense now. There is a lot of synergy between this engine, Motor Sich and Baykar MIUS .
Looking at the type of engines chosen it is a fact that Baykar is intending to develop supersonic MIUS along side the subsonic one.
This engine can reach 1.6 Mach speed..

The other engine chosen; AI 25 TLT is a subsonic engine with a thrust of 1720lbf+ .

I the MIUS is going to be a stealth drone or non-stealth drone ? because if it's stealth I think that the ukrainian engine won't be good at the thermal signature unlike the western counterpart . for example this is f-22 and you can see the small signature it make unlike the soviet\russian era engines .

( sorry for big pic )

Bayraktar TB2 with the number 220 is ready.

Note how they have zero Space in the Factory. The Tail of the Tb2 is right next to the Engineers.
> The new Factory needs to be established ASAP.
