Turkish Aerospace has secured a new, 22-unit order for its Anka medium-altitude, long-endurance unmanned air vehicle from the nation's armed forces.


Ankara's SSB presidency of defence industries says deliveries are planned for 2019. The order includes 16 Anka-S platforms with satellite communications and the remainder in the company's Anka-B version of the armed UAV. All will be equipped with Aselsan’s CATS HD electro-optical/infrared sensor.

Turkey's armed forces currently operate eight Anka-S vehicles, with another two to be received before year-end under a previous order.

Meanwhile, Turkish Aerospace on 1 October delivered its first Hurkus-B single-engined trainer for operational testing with the Turkish air force. The company is under contract to supply 15 of the turboprop-powered type next year.
