Turkish military might is rapidly increasing thanks to its drone technology and investments in the domestic armament industry which for a long time was dependent on imports, says La Croix.
Turkiye is well on its way to meeting the goals of its 2023 defence vision, joining the top-tiers of the global defence industry with cutting-edge defence offerings in every domain of military technology. Here’s what it achieved in 2021.
Turkey-made Bayraktar TB2 drone was used to force separatists halt fire after killing of a soldier, says Ukrainian military.
State Committee for National Security chairman Tashiev said that the personnel that will use the Turkish drones are in Turkey for their training.
Turkey’s latest drone takes its defence industry into the big leagues, among “the top three combat drone manufacturers in the world,” President Erdogan says.
Offering a force multiplier to its users, TB2 drones are behind Azerbaijan’s rapid advance on the strategic Lachin highway linking occupied Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia.
Domestically produced drones have become a symbol of national pride as Turkey seeks to shed its reliance on outside powers and become a leading defence exporter.
