The number of ANKA-S unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in the inventory of the Turkish Air Forces Command rose to six. ANKA-S UAV, manufactured by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI), has been developed in order to be used day and night, including in bad weather, for reconnaissance, surveillance, fixed and mobile target detection and identification, and target-oriented real-time image intelligence tasks. It also has the ability to be controlled through national satellites.
These unmanned aerial vehicles were produced within the scope of the contract signed between SSM and TAI to meet the operational needs of the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) , while two more ANKA-S’s were added to the units delivered to Turkish Air Force Command and used effectively in the field, thus increasing the total number of these UAVs in the inventory to six. In the statement made by SSM, it was emphasized that the production of the unmanned aerial vehicles ANKA-S and Bayraktar TB2 produced by domestic and national means will continue in line with the needs of security forces.
