Poland announced on Wednesday that it could purchase Bayraktar TB2 (Tactical Block 2) unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak shared the photo of a Bayraktar TB2 model on his Twitter account.
âGood news is coming soon … stay tuned,â he tweeted.
Turkish Industry and Technology Minister Mustafa Varank said earlier on Wednesday that Turkish drones were ready for the Europan market.
He was speaking at the 3rd Defense Industry Meetings, organized by the Istanbul Chamber of Industry and the SAHA Istanbul Defense and Aerospace Cluster.
âVery soon we will see the Bayraktar and Anka drones from Turkey flying over European skies,â he said.
European countries, including Albania, Belarus, the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland, with which Turkey has good defense relations, are said to be among those who could possibly procure the combat drones in question.
The Bayraktar TB2 armed drone was developed by the leading drone manufacturer Baykar and is currently in active use with Turkey, Qatar, Ukraine and Azerbaijan.
The Anka Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) drones which were developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) are currently used by the Turkish military, as well as the National Intelligence Organization (MIT), in different configurations. The company is preparing to make its first export to Tunisia soon.
