Guys, please let's not derail the thread. My comment was about the capabilities of Anka-3 and discussion should be about that, at least in here.

My understanding from the first day is that there will be 2 internally. The underbody will be external, not internal.
She (the manager) speaks about the final product and also possible another iteration (or version, note-there will be an export version as well). Despite of what is told before, i am somewhat assured they will eventually fit SOM-J in the internal bay.

May I ask what you are going to do with 2 x TF10000 engines with afterburners on a flying wing?
Don't know about 2x but 1x TF10000 it seems more feasible for a STOL. A take off with afterburners on might enable some operations.

It's not Matrix 5 what are they waiting for. 🤦🏻
Marketing strategy. By the way, if it is released in cinemas, it may gross more than the total of the matrix series in Turkiye, for the domestic audience. :) Bayraktar brothers can beat up the Wachowski sisters in TR.

PR strategies
No defence company can rival Baykar when it comes to PR strategies
They are the bruce lee of Promos🤣

SAAB's promos are the best in my opinion.

Baykar's promos are too 'emotional' and usually depends on excessive uses of musics/songs.

And The documentary style follows culturally an Eastern trend where emotional aspect of a collective success story is overrepresented in certain ways compared to other aspects. (For example, Akinci's documentary)

To put it simply, if you don’t feel emotionally connected to their story it may appears kind of weird to a Non-Turk audience.

Note- This is not a criticism, just an observation.

Very odd landing, no?
We keep seeing the KE doing these super long landing flares for some reason. Maybe they're testing out the automated landing systems? Maybe either the operator or autoland is extra cautious to ensure a soft landing at the expense of landing distance?

This is a general problem of Turks' public diplomacy and PR understanding.

We can't even convince most Westerners about FETÖ because our propaganda relies on emotions&chauvinism instead of solid proofs and reason.

Hopefully Baykar makes a drone named after their father.

Keonigsegg supercars, Christian Keonigsegg named a car after his father named Jesko. I watched the unveiling of the car I say its a great thing.

I wish Ozdemir Baba was alive to see that happen oh well 🥲

LoL, You can bet China, India or Even US will follow such a decision. Anybody who wont employ swarm attacks can't over saturate Enemy defenses.
Ofcourse but swarm drones poses a real threat to humanity in general. I can kill off the entire world by just purchasing two chinese factories that produces 1 dollar drone. 10billion usd = humans dead 🤯

This might be classified but hopefully Kizilelma and the Anka III can operate in heavy EW environment, which will more than likely be the battlespace they will find themselves in. Developing a fully capable AI pilot would not only solve this issue but the comms range and delay as well. They're better than human pilots too, especially ones controlling it from a far distance. I'd assume AI development wouldn't be too expensive as well, as it's majorly a software issue. But it could take a LONG while, feeding it info and training it.
