If there were no other solution they would simply start from scratch and do the right things to get to a product unlike what Aselsan did. They could perhaps even move faster than Aselsan. You don't need all that much optics expertise, it is simply a telescope after all, even ameteurs make telescopes.
Everything sounds so easy from your mouth, can you explain to me why they didnt do it until now if its that easy?

Electro-optic systems are much more than telescopes. They are far from Baykar's area of expertise. Thanks to all the money they made, in the future they may be able to expand into that but it would be a huge investment. In the past it would be completely impossible for Baykar to do this due to lack of funds.

It only makes sense to enter those fields if they can not source good quality products from other companies.

It would be really interesting to know much each unit would cost.

Isn't it already obvious because they can source good quality products from other companies, why bother making them yourself. If they couldn't source them they would develop them in-house.

Between Çakır and UAV-230, we'll have 2 options for different missions with 150+ km range for our heavy duty drones like Akıncı and Aksungur. How many air defense systems have longer range than that? Our drones can rain fire from relative safety with these missiles in a lot of situations except for the worst case ones, for which we just happened to be developing Anka-3.

And also KE, just like featured in Cakir's promo carrying them internally.
