The Bayraktar is a medium altitude long endurance (MALE) unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) developed, designed and manufactured by the Turkish Company Baykar The Bayraktar TB2 has a lenght of 6.5 m, a height of 2.2 m and a wingspan of 12 m. It has a maximum take-off weight of 650 kg with a maximum payload capacity of 150 kg. It can fly at a maximum speed of 120 knots (222 km/h) at a maximum altitude of 27,000 feet (8,230 m) and has a flight endurance of up to 27 hours.

The Bayraktar TB2 can be armed with four laser-guided smart ammunition. The Armed UAV Bayraktar TB2 is a multi-purpose platform as it can perform Target Acquisition using the onboard laser designator. It is also capable of eliminating the target using its payload consisting of four smart munitions. Bayraktar TB2 is a system that offers all cutting-edge solutions required to carry out surgical precision strikes preventing widespread damage to close areas. n December 2021, different sources indicated that the UAE had ordered the Bayraktar TB2.

I In recent news, Ukraine signed deal with Turkey to produce Bayraktar UAVs in Ukraine.

MAM-L lightweight Smart Micro Munition has been developed for UAVs, light attack aircraft and air-to-ground missions. MAM-L offers high strike precision and efficiency with alternative warheads against fixed and mobile targets. MAM-L is the thermobaric variant of MAM (Mini Akıllı Mühimmat, Smart Micro Munition), a family of GPS/INS and laser-guided smart munitions produced by Turkish defence industry manufacturer ROKETSAN.

- BOZOK, developed by Tübitak Sage,  provides effective defense without jeopardizing friendly elements in asymmetric warfare by giving attack capability to unmanned air vehicles. Due to the lightweight and compact design, it brings operational conformability in unmanned aerial vehicles for which weight is critical. BOZOK with its novel design stands out among rivals by the help of robust operational capabilities. BOZOK exploits inertial measurement unit for tactical inertial guidance for midcourse. During terminal course, precision guidance is achieved by the semi active laser seeker. At the end of the terminal phase, BOZOK presents large scale anti-personnel effect relying on proximity sensors and optimized target effectiveness.
