Last year, Turkish government signed up with TAI an order of 10 Ankas UAV and ground stations. Under the deal, the first serial production deliveries will take place between 2016 and 2018.
Recently, Turkey’s procurement planners have moved to add satellite communications capabilities to the Anka.
A version dubbed Anka+ calls for a rocket attached to its body and sensors. TAI has ambitions beyond the Anka and expects to build a high-altitude, long-range (HALE) drone, a 6-ton aircraft. defensenews
