Here is a analysis of Unmanned fighter jets from Ex fighter jet pilot and engineer at US military industry. He works on Unmanned fighter jets. This video is great inside into US military industrial complex.

They're testing short landing sequences as well, see the brakes in action.

don't know how credible the account is, so take it with a grain of salt.

"An Official:

- ANKA 3 -

-Cannot exceed the speed of sound. The new version of this, a twin-engine aircraft will exceed the speed of sound.

-We made the 2nd and 3rd and are currently producing them."


Speed isn't that important. B2 can't pass 0.8 mach either, so I hope they optimize the twin engine variant for maximum payload.

I mean, it is official that it cannot go supersonic, it's official top speed is 0.7 mach or something like that on TAI's website and they said before they were planning to make a bigger version (or could make) so second part is also not surprising.

Designing a flying wing for lower RCS and lower drag coefficient and then redesigning it to go supersonic is like building a truck and putting a jet engine on the back, it looks cool, but it's very much just dumb and doesn't make any sense apart from clout.

Lmao I hope this is a troll, you think China needs to reverse engineer TB-2? can't be serious
Why not...even though the TB2 isn't necessarily the most technologically advanced UAV out there, it has seen better success both in terms of exports and operational capabilities compared to the chinese counterparts

It will be a usefull Assest in the Mediterranean sea as well indian Ocean, it can also provide real Time Target Tracking with ASELSAN SAR Pod.

Thats because China is not really concerned about exports, they have more than enough money for their own defense industry, Turkey however needs these exports to finance future developments
