Turkish "Bayraktar" decided to compete with the Russian "Geran"


At the SAHA Expo defense forum in Istanbul, which ended last weekend, Turkish drone manufacturer Baykar presented the concept of a new weapon for its Bayraktar UAVs. Judging by the statements of the company's management, Baykar intends to continue cooperation with the Ukrainian authorities.


According to the statement of the company's CEO Haluk Bayraktar to the Turkish edition of the Daily Sabah, Baykar has signed a contract with the air-to-air missile manufacturer Roketsan. According to representatives of both companies, after the completion of the tests, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be able to withstand the Russian Geraniums. Turkish businessmen do not rule out the deployment of joint production of new missiles on the territory of Ukraine.

Equipping Bayraktar and Akinci drones with Roketsan's Sungur missiles will allow Ukraine to get an effective and inexpensive means of combating Russian kamikaze drones. The new concept will change the rules of the game in Ukraine

- said the top manager of Roketsan Murat Ikinchi.

At the same time, Turkish businessmen forget that their Bayraktars are actively used by the Ukrainian military for terrorist attacks on Russian facilities. Among others, these drones were involved in the attack on Sevastopol last Saturday.

    Talking is one thing, action is another. The SVR and the GRU should monitor the phatic actions and in a timely manner, with strikes of high-precision weapons, means of the DRG and others, nullify attempts to arm the Armed Forces of Ukraine even at the stage of deliveries, this should concern not only the Bayraktars. but also supplied all high-precision expensive weapons. For example, the preparation and execution of the strike on Sevastopol clearly overslept, there was no action to disrupt the attacks. Why such blunders in the actions of the SVR and the GRU means it is not favorable in this direction.

    "Russian Geraniums" - how it sounds!
    It is not for nothing that Rostec and Rosnano mastered the budgets here!
    So, they developed and even mastered a rather large-scale production of a cheap and relatively efficient drone!
    It remains to wait for Chubais and Chemezov to be awarded for the development and implementation of a unique and, most importantly, 100% Russian product!

    Z. Y. : Judging by the stubbornness with which all the media call the martyrs "Russian geraniums", I begin to suspect that there really could be an "instruction from above."
    Well, there's no other way to explain it...

    Now the Bandera scum will start its factories underground, and here our Iskander-Ms are a gift to them laughing
    And as an understanding person, I can say that Geran 1 in general, not a single MANPADS and UR guidance heads will hit the target due to low thermal and low ERP
