Under the contract, STM will deliver 356 of its new-generation KARGU-2 (Autonomous Tactical Multi-Rotor Attack UAV) kamikaze UAVs, which features increased mission duration, altitude and autonomy, low volume and improved target detection algorithm.
The rotary-wing kamikaze mini-UAV KARGU, also known as “Turkey’s new soldiers in the sky,” entered the security forces’ inventory last year. STM’s first delivery to security forces was a grant. With this first delivery, 10 kamikaze UAVs were made available for use, while this figure reached 115 with deliveries made in line with later orders.
The KARGU-2, which is more capable and effective than the previous version, was built according to feedback received from the field. The updated version will contribute to the security forces’ capability in residential areas, specifically enabling them to enter into a building or cave before detecting and neutralizing threats.
