Without arresting cables, its impossible. Even with big lift wings, its still not going to be safe flying so slow to land.

Next on Baykar's agenda should be to continue it's expansion into the civilian market by development a cargo drone with a capacity of 1-2 tonnes and long-range.

Bulgarian Dronamics has developed the UAV below for Cargo transportation with 3.000km range and 350kg capacity. It promised $5 per kilogram in freight cost which is very lucrative.

I personally believe that while Baykar and TAI are striving for the 10-15 year urgent requirements, this period has the conditions to enable this more company diversification. In this process, the remaining needs with low capital and human resources requirements should be solved with the diversity of companies to be provided. While TAI and Baykar evolve towards another league, space should be created in the lower league. This actually how aerospace things evolved in US during cold war.

At this point, I think we should talk about the increase in the number of end system designers and system integrator companies. There are at least 2-3 institutions/companies in TR that can realise the heavy class cargo UAV you mentioned, other than Baykar. All electronics and mechanics that can be used on the aircraft are ready. There are more than ten companies that will produce its structures. They can use state resources/ state-owned hangars and airbases for final assembly and testing. Even without SSB support, the development of this type of aircraft can be projected as highly feasible. If there is SSB support, developing this type of vehicle will be a piece of cake for the Turkish aerospace industry. Especially on the UAV side, there is now a very serious ecosystem. In fact, it has such a wide spectrum that it has very few equivalents in the world. The reason why it is not so visible at the moment is that ambitious projects are centred around two or three main end-system manufacturers.

Indeed 2nd tier companies should step up. Titra is one example, they just exported their 200kg capacity cargo helicopter to Malaysia.

the benefit of Baykar doing it is that it would instantly become an export success

ASELSAN has developed special electronic warfare (communication electronic support, communication electronic attack, radar electronic support, radar electronic attack, self-protection systems, electronic warfare pods, Karetta Anti-Jam system) for AKINCI.


İbrahim Sünnetçi said, "Last year, I wrote that ELINT and EH Pods (which GM GÖRGÜN announced in December 2022 that it can confuse the radars of air defense systems from a distance of close to 100 km) will be used in AKINCI. AKINCI can meet the energy needs of this type of pod, thanks to its two powerful TP engines with a capacity of 750hp. ANKA and AKSUNGUR, on the other hand, can be equipped with EH Pods with lower output power and mixing range, such as ASELSAN's Mini Electronic Attack Pod, as they cannot meet the energy needs especially for the EH Pod."

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAŞ) delivered 2 ANKA SİHAs, which Tunisia provided additionally, to the Tunisian Air Force. Thus, the total number of ANKA SİHAs delivered to Tunisia was 5.

TAI signed a contract with Tunisia for the export of ANKA SİHA in the past years. It was learned that the total cost of the agreement, which includes 3 ANKA SİHAs and 3 ground stations, is 80 million dollars.

In the news published in SavunmaSanayiST; TUSAŞ, which completed 3 ANKA SİHA orders for Tunisia last year, has also received a new order. Two additional ANKA ordered by Tunisia were delivered to Tunisian Air Force by TAI. Thus, TAI has so far delivered 5 ANKAs to Tunisia.

On the other hand, TAI continues its contacts with different countries regarding ANKA exports. The company has so far delivered 3 ANKAs to Kazakhstan, 2 AKSUNGURs to Kyrgyzstan, 2 ANKAs to Chad and 5 ANKAs to Tunisia. Indonesia ordered 12 ANKAs, Algeria 10 and Malaysia 9 ANKAs.


ANKA Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, developed by TAI with national resources, including day/night and bad weather conditions; It is equipped with payloads for real-time image intelligence, target destruction missions for reconnaissance, surveillance, fixed/moving target detection, identification, identification and tracking.

ANKA UAV can stay in the air for 24 hours at an altitude of 30,000ft and can carry 350+ kilograms of payload. While it is estimated that approximately 50 ANKA SİHAs have been delivered so far, the production activities of the same number continue.

Anka 3 has still not flown. Seems it’s facing lots of issues, unfortunately.
