In December 2022, Turkish drone producer Baykar’s CEO, Haluk Bayraktar, signed a contract with the Albanian prime minister, Edi Rama, to ship 3 Bayraktar TB2 unmanned fight aerial autos to the armed forces of Albania within the first stage with choices to develop the fleet in future. The fame and worldwide demand for Turkish Bayraktar TB2 and Bayraktar Akinci have risen throughout Europe for the reason that begin this February of Russia’s conflict on Ukraine. The variety of international locations to which the Bayraktar TB2 nmanned fight aerial car is being exported has risen to 27, based on the corporate. The Bayraktar TB2 is seen as pivotal in conflicts starting from Karabakh to Ukraine.

The Bayraktar TB2 is a medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) unmanned fight aerial car (UCAV) able to remotely managed or autonomous flight operations. It’s manufactured by the Turkish firm Baykar Makina Sanayi ve Ticaret A.?., primarily for the Turkish Armed Forces. The plane are monitored and managed by an aircrew in a floor management station, together with weapons employment. The event of the UAV has been largely credited to Selçuk Bayraktar, a former MIT graduate pupil. By November 2021, the TB2 drone had accomplished 400,000 flight-hours globally. Whereas the Turkish Armed Forces describes Bayraktar TB2 as “Tactical UAV Class” to stop it from being a competitor to the TAI Anka UAV, worldwide requirements would classify it as a medium-altitude long-endurance UAV.

The Bayraktar TB2 platform has a blended wing physique design with an inverted V-tail construction. Thrust is generated by a variable pitch two-blade propeller in pusher configuration. The propeller is mounted between the tail booms and pushed by an inner combustion engine situated within the physique. The monocoque platform is modular with removable major objects corresponding to wing, tail increase, and V-tails. Fuselage items are made largely of carbon fiber composite with machined aluminum components at joints. Gasoline is saved inside bladder tanks and gasoline consumption is balanced with solenoid valves. The bottom management station (GCS) is predicated on a NATO spec shelter unit which is supplied with cross redundant command and management programs.

The cellular unit helps three personnel: pilot, payload operator and mission commander. The GCS is supplied with redundant air conditioners and nuclear, organic and chemical filtration (NBC) filtering unit. All {hardware} contained in the shelter is positioned inside racked cupboards. Every operator has twin screens in entrance together with the operator interface software program used for real-time command, management and monitoring. Every TB2 is configured with six aerial car platforms, two floor management stations, three floor knowledge terminals (GDT), two distant video terminals (RVT) and floor assist tools. Its floor management system’s cross redundant structure permits for pilot, payload operator and mission commander to command, management and monitor the platform.
