Ukraine reportedly looks to buy 48 Turkish Bayraktar TB2 armed drones

Ukraine is now reportedly in talks to buy additional 48 Bayraktar TB2 armed drones from Turkey, according to Nozdria Vadym general director of the state-run company for export and import of military and special products “UkrSpetsEksport”.

In a statement to Lb.ua, a General Director of UkrSpetsEksport said Ukraine plans to get more Turkish drones, which the Ministry of Defense plans to put into service in the Armed Forces.

What’s more, according to the Vision for the Development of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Ministry of Defense plans to purchase six to 12 Bayraktar TB2 complexes (ie 6-12 control stations and 3-4 unmanned combat aerial vehicles for each complex).

Furthermore, the possibility of assembling Turkish drones in Ukraine is being considered.

“And this is already a joint production, SKD on the territory of Ukraine, while the cost of each complex, in this case, will decrease by 35%. Including taking into account imported components, which Turkey itself buys,” Vadym, told in an interview. “Now, We’re talking about a place for the localization of such production.”

The Armed Forces of Ukraine have received into service its first there Bayraktar TB2 armed unmanned aerial vehicles in 2019.
