“Another terrible example of drone warfare! Liteye and its partners can protect against this.”
While reports of Azerbaijan using military drones against Armenia have been doing the rounds for more than a week, Baku has finally acknowledged the use of Turkish and Israeli produced drones to strike in the conflicted region of Nagorno-Karabakh.
Reportedly, the drones used by Baku were Turkish made Bayraktar TB2 and Israeli Harops.
The Turkish Bayraktar TB2 is a medium altitude long endurance unmanned combat aerial vehicle capable of remotely controlled or autonomous flight operations. The drones carry precision-guided MAM-L (Smart Micro Munitions).
The Bayraktar Tactical UAS is a surveillance and reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) initially developed for the Turkish Armed Forces. It is developed by the Kale-Baykar, a joint venture between the Kale Group and Baykar Technologies.
In 2014, Bayraktar held the national endurance and altitude record for Turkey’s unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). It set a record for autonomous flight endurance when it flew 24 hours and 34 minutes at 18,000 feet on 5 August 2014. It furthermore recorded highest altitude of 27,030 feet on its flight on 14 June 2014 with full payload. Bayraktar TB2 successfully demonstrated firing of ROKETSAN MAM-L Smart Micro Munition with 100% accuracy in December 2015.
