Turkey’s New UCAV AKINCI Engages Sea Target For The 1st Time
April 23, 2022, 10:38 a.m.
According to SavumaTR, a Turkish defense media, despite difficult weather conditions for using laser seeker munitions, the test was a success owing to the combined efforts of AKINCI and TB2 UCAVs. During the firing test, the Bayraktar TB2 performed laser designation on the target, and AKINCI dropped the TEBER-82 from a height of 20,000 feet. The bomb dropped by AKINCI rode the laser beam of the TB2 drone.
The event marked the first sea-target engagement of AKINCI unmanned aircraft, which is expected to enter service for the Turkish Navy in the following period. Here is the video of the event:
