Baykar Defence delivered the second batch of Bayraktar TB2 Armed Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to Ukraine. In January 2019, Baykar Defense and Ukrspetsproekt, Ukraine’s state-run armament agency, signed a US$69 Million contract for the procurement of 6 Bayraktar TB2 UCAVs, 3 ground control stations, MAM-L Smart Micro Munition, and related equipment to meet the needs of the Ukrainian Air Force. Following the completion of the test and training activities, the first batch of 3 Bayraktar TB2 UCAVs was delivered to Ukraine in March. During the ceremony held at the military base in the Khmelnytsky region with the participation of Ukrainian President Petro POROSHENKO, a live firing test was also carried out with a Bayraktar TB2 UCAV.

Within the scope of second-party deliveries, 3 TB2 UCAVs, training simulators, mission payloads, camera systems, and ground data terminals were delivered to the Ukrainian Air Force. During the acceptance tests performed at Starokostiantyniv Air Base, the Ukranian Air Force evaluated the performance of the aircraft and its components. The UCAVs will be operated by Ukranian Air Force personnel who have completed their training in Turkey.
