Production of unmanned aerial vehicles "Bayraktar" left without engines due to the situation in Karabakh

Bombardier Recreational Products of Canada, a world-renowned manufacturer of ATVs, snowmobiles and other outdoor products, said it is suspending the supply of drone motors "to countries with unclear use," Canadian media reported.

BRP recently "unexpectedly" learned that the power units produced by its Austrian subsidiary, BRP-Rotax GmbH & Co KG, are being installed on the Bayraktar TB2 (Bayraktar or Standard Bearer) Turkish operational tactical drones, which take an active part in the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

The Canadians "thought" that the Turks would install the aforementioned engines on pleasure planes. Now the Turkish company "Baykar Makina", the manufacturer of these drones, was left without engines for them in connection with the situation in Nagorno-Karabakh. The drones were equipped with a Rotax 912 internal combustion engine with a 100 hp push-type propeller.

We recently learned that some Rotax motors are used in military drones. We immediately launched a thorough investigation

- the senior vice president of BPR Martin Langelier, who for some reason was not embarrassed by the use of Bayraktar TB2 drones in Libya and Syria before that, informed the Canadian media.

Note that on October 5, 2020, Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne announced that his country would stop supplying weapons to Turkey, since they could be used in Nagorno-Karabakh. This happened after reproaches were made to Ottawa that her Technology help kill Armenians and increase tensions in the region.

The minister noted that the Nagorno Karabakh problem needs to be settled through diplomatic means. He called on the parties to the conflict to stop hostilities and sit down at the negotiating table.

        Where did Ukraine get 100hp engines from? There have never been such ones produced there. All technologies in Ukraine come from the USSR. But such engines were not produced in the USSR either.

      Jews can also. In any case, there is always an opportunity to buy through intermediaries, it will be more expensive, but the customer will pay.
      A recent example, the purchase of 8 dviguns / APU / on AN 124 from us through the UAE ..

    It's time to add a new word to the Turkish language - import substitution laughing
    The translator suggests that it is written this way - ithal ikamesi
    In the meantime, the powerful industrial power remains to trade in tomatoes feel
    The camera on it is also said to be Canadian is L-3 WESCAM CMX-15D from WESCAM. Hasn't the Armenian lobby reached them yet?

    I suppose there is only a name from Turkish.

      Here the Armenian lobbyists pondered on all suppliers for Turkish UAVs. That's just why the Israelis were not bothered by the Armenians with supplies to Azerbaijan, the guts are thin against the Jewish lobby ...

    no need to make people laugh, BPR didn't know where their engines were going. Turkish drones in Syria, Libya, Karabakh, Ukraine are supplied, and how many have already been destroyed. And like it's all for some kind of pleasure planes. And where are these walks?

    In fact, the Turks, together with the Jews, cover the terrorists from the air from the air. Earlier in Syria, now in Artsakh. When they say this is business, nothing else - it does not work. Because people are dying, fighting is going on. If governments have a remnant of morality, they should suspend supplies. Otherwise, they are participants in aggression.

      Who are terrorists in Nagorno-Karabakh? This is a territory unrecognized by anyone, including by Armenia. They themselves are terrorists by and large.

        The logic goes off scale. It means that 95% of the countries that did not recognize Crimea, they can consider the Crimeans as terrorists. South Ossetians and Abkhazians too. Bravo. That means, according to you, Naryshkin is a verbalist when he says that Azerbazhan imports terrorist babakhs from Syria. Well, well.

          I have no idea who 95% of countries consider Crimeans. The main thing is that we consider the Crimeans Russians. We recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia. For us these are independent states. \ But nobody recognized the NKR, not even Armenia. So who are they? Ordinary terrorists who invaded foreign lands. If the truth was on their side, then Armenia would certainly recognize them.

            I see it is necessary to restore your broken logical chain. Can the inhabitants of the DPR and LPR, which are not recognized by Russia, YET, be considered terrorists? Can it be considered, judging by your logic, that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are kosher (legally) bombing these "terrorists"? Apparently they are also occupants. Occupied themselves, hehe. In my opinion, you perfectly understand that it is Azherbazhan who uses the services, prohibited in the Russian Federation, of gangs. And yet, I am tormented by vague doubts, are you Igor?

              Russia will never recognize the LPR and the DPR. And who someone thinks them is their own business. What do we have to do with this?

    They just found a replacement for engines and optics from their manufacturers

      With the Turkish drone UAVs, the "train went" and it will not be possible to stop it, (they will find replacements for details, etc.) Further development is foreseen for new models, it is sad that Turkey has bypassed the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation ...

    The replacement of rotax engines with our own has been going on since six months. In addition, there were supplies of Ukrainian engines, very good performance characteristics. The same is in optics, there are more advanced technologies, the same Israeli ones have proven themselves very well

    What kind of insanity, in my opinion, in this case, it is 100% clear what the drones are used for. Or did they think the Turks were going to peep into the windows of high-rise buildings and peep behind the fences of private houses?
