Bayraktar Akinci Turkey's largest attack drone

The major military conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh, which began on September 27, 2020, attracted the attention of the whole world and seriously influenced the interest in the unmanned aviation, In light of the ongoing conflict, Turkish attack UAVs, including Bayraktar TV2, are of the greatest interest. However, this drone is no longer the pinnacle of Turkish UAV development. Baykar Makina has developed a larger strike drone with greater strike capabilities, Bayraktar Akinci, the first photos of which were leaked to the press back in 2018.Bayraktar Akinci is already comparable in size to full-fledged fighters. In terms of its size, it noticeably surpasses Bayraktar TV2. The first photographs of the new device appeared on the Internet in June 2018, at that time the development of a new attack drone was already underway. The entire preliminary design phase of the new UAV was completed by Baykar Makina engineers by June 2019, after which the ground testing phase of the unmanned aerial vehicle started in August.The new UAV is a reconnaissance and strike high-altitude long-range unmanned aerial vehicle. The drone is quite large, suffice it to say that it outperforms American F-15 / F-16 fighters in wingspan. The wing span of Bayraktar Akinci is 20 meters, the length of the craft is 12,2 meters, and the height is 4,1 meters. The maximum take-off weight declared by the manufacturer is 5500 kg. In this case, the maximum payload mass is 1350 kg (the "Reaper" - 1700 kg). In this case, the weapons, according to the materials presented on the official website of the manufacturer, can be placed on eight external suspension points.The flight performance of the novelty is very high. The declared operating altitude is 30 feet (approximately 9150 meters), and the aircraft's service ceiling is 40 feet (approximately 10000 meters). In this case, the drone can stay in the air for up to 12 hours. Like its predecessor, the drone has a fairly advanced AI and can fly in fully automatic mode. The device will land on its own, take off, fly in cruise mode.The power plant of the new attack UAV is represented by two Ukrainian modernized turboprop engines AI-450 with a capacity of 450 hp. each. The engines were developed by the specialists of the Ivchenko-Progress enterprise. It is also possible to install more powerful 750 hp engines. The power of the engines is sufficient to provide the Akinci strike drone with a maximum flight speed of 195 knots (approximately 360 km / h), and a cruising speed of 130 knots (approximately 240 km / h).The new Turkish drone is designed to deliver air strikes against enemy ground targets, as well as conduct operational-strategic aerial reconnaissance. In addition to guided missile weapons and guided aerial bombs, the drone can carry various means of electronic reconnaissance. A feature of the drone will be the presence on board of a radar with an active phased antenna array, which will allow the drone to independently identify air targets. Also, the device will receive an air collision warning station and a synthetic aperture radar to obtain radar images of the earth's surface, regardless of meteorological conditions. The drone will also carry the Aseslan CATS optical reconnaissance, surveillance and targeting system.Also, the manufacturer expects to place on board the device the equipment necessary to detect the radars of enemy air defense systems with the possibility of their subsequent destruction with a wide range of guided munitions. One of the tasks of the new attack and reconnaissance drone should be to reduce the load on classic fighter aircraft.The range of used ammunition is quite extensive. Here and free-falling bombs Mk-81, Mk-82, Mk-83, including in the version of conversion to high-precision weapon (JDAM), and small-sized guided bombs MAM-L and MAM-C, which are the main armament for the Bayraktar TV2 drone, and 70-mm laser-guided CIRIT missiles, as well as the L-UMTAS ATGM in the air-based version with a launch range 8 kilometers.

Turkey will be using its own engines for the TB3 drones and Akinci drones.The West were making fun of Turkey that Turkey uses Western and Ukraine engines for its drones but this announcement will embarrass the West.
