Locally-made Turkish armed drone successfully tested
Baykar Makina said its Bayraktar Akıncı (Raider) Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle stayed in the air for 16 minutes after completing a fully-automatic taxi and takeoff.
It also successfully implemented its first fully-automatic landing at Çorlu Airport Base Command in Tekirdağ province. Its first engine test of the vehicle was made in September.
The newly-designed unmanned vehicle system is expected to be used for strategic military tasks.
