TB-2 is now a generic brand for tactical grade UAVs. In other words, the situation where the name of a trademark replaces the name of the product after a while, has some examples in the military field, as it turns out, TB-2 is now in this group.

Still, the use of this in an official logo is an extremely remarkable detail. Because there are other important details in the same logo, and the main institution to which the unit is affiliated is also known for its habit of placing different messages on the logos. Thanks for sharing.

Is the design of the twin-engine configuration in the illustration of any official or semi-official nature, or is it fan made based on guesswork?

Illustration. Officially it has only been mentioned as a future configuration.

When was the last time BAYKAR made a reference to TEI or TF6000? I don't remember seeing any info about Turkish engine on their brochures. I feel like it's not on their agenda. And while at it, does anyone know about the efficiency difference between TF6000 and AI-322F? Are there enough difference to justify the use the Turkish engine? Baykar has established a joint venture(Blacksea Shield) to produce Ukranian engines, after all. They would like to capitalize on it, I would think.

Shahed 136

We recently witnessed the use of Iranian Shahed 136 drones by Russia against Ukraine. Of course, this situation immediately brought to mind the question of whether there is such a product, opportunity or technology in our country. The first thing that came to mind was the newly launched Kargı drone. But there is another drone in our country that is very similar to the shahed 136 drone. Turna target plane.

Turna target drone
Bro shaheed 136 is long range 2000-3000 km and is all type cheap kamikaze drone
Turna i dont know its range but i dont think its 2000km one . Aslo Kargi is anti radar weapon and will be exoensive . I hope Turkiye produce cheap one abd to hit all kind of targets .

Only time they mentioned TEI if I remember, was when they were embargoed heavily by the Canadians and Rotax engine supply ceased. Then they tested PD-170 and were very impressed with it’s power delivery.

Regarding the TF6000 and it’s Ukrainian counterpart ; On paper there is no comparison. TF6000 is miles more advanced than any Soviet era engine. It has blisk fan technology. It uses single crystal turbine blades. Overall efficiency is much more improved.
But if I were to choose today, it will have to be the Ukrainian engine. There is no TF6000 in existence. But when the TF6000 starts spinning, even if it is more expensive it will be cheaper to use it as it is going to be indigenous and technically superior. Hence more frugal on fuel and more akin to an engine for stealth planes.
Comparing the the two is analogous to choosing between carrying passengers with a 1980’s model Ford Transit or with 2020’s Mercedes Vito Tourer.

Tusaş has started a project to transform the Şimşek target drone into a kamikaze drone.

Good news, however they are talking about Drone launched Simsek target drones.
I'm looking forward to seeing truck launched Simseks with 10-12 drones. Similar to Harops. Launch and scoot.

These could be used as decoys in eastern med.
