    This is still in initial stages. Herons are already in service with TAF. Good development that Turkish are actively attempting to make their own drones. Although drones in their region are of little use except against PKK's communist terrorists.

    I see a lot of the Hermes' design influence on the thing, then again the Ignat and the Reaper looked alike too. Congratulations to the Turks! This obviously has very good specifics.

    I'm also hearing. TAI is busy developing a UCAV on the lines of the Anka, which is to be equipped with SAR radar, EO/IR FLIR and SAT-COM terminal, alongwith a full 500 kg. payload of Cirit 2.75" LGBM's and UMTAS long-range anti-tank missiles.


    Here are some pictures:
