Turkish ANKA drones will be produced in Kazakhstan. This was reported by the country’s Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development. Previously, these strike drones were manufactured only in Turkey.
“The agreement envisages long-term cooperation in the field of joint drone manufacturing, as well as transfer of technologies and training of personnel for maintenance and repair of UAVs for the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan,” the ministry said.
The ANKA reconnaissance and strike drone was created in Turkey in 2013 and was tested in combat conditions. It has a maximum takeoff weight of 1,700 kilograms and can carry a payload of up to 350 kilograms. It can fly up to 30 hours at a maximum altitude of up to 9,000 meters.
