From today’s Daily Sabah. The deadly Bayraktar TB2 combat drone has been used for what can only be deemed cowardly aerial assassinations in Iraq, Syria, Libya, Nagorno-Karabakh and as of yesterday Ukraine. The article mentions the following countries as purchasers and prospective purchasers of the drones: Albania, Azerbaijan, Ethiopia, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Morocco, Poland, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Ukraine.
Turkish drone magnate Baykar on Wednesday said it will be exporting its Bayraktar TB2 unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) to another purchaser, without unveiling which country it will be.
“We have completed the #BayraktarTB2 UCAV export contract with one more country. With this agreement, the number of countries where #BayraktarTB2 UCAV has been exported to became 13,” the company said…
The growing interest in domestic UCAVs followed their successful use in conflicts.
The Turkish military used drones last year in Syria as well as in Libya where Ankara backed the Tripoli-based government against eastern forces supported by Russia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Egypt.
In Nagorno-Karabakh, the drones helped Turkey’s ally Azerbaijan defeat [ethnic Armenian] forces.
Most recently on Tuesday, Ukrainian Armed Forces also shared a video showing Bayraktar TB2’s destroying a howitzer used by pro-Russian separatists in Donbass….
